Paysafe launches revamped Skrill in Ontario


Payment platform, Paysafe, has launched its revamped Skrill digital wallet for online betting in the Canadian province of Ontario.

Developed specifically to meet the payment preferences of iGaming players, the upgraded Skrill wallet allows Ontarians to instantly fund wagers and effortlessly cash-out winnings while enjoying a streamlined and intuitive user experience (UX).

With Paysafe’s 2023 All the ways players pay research revealing that 73% of Ontarian online sports bettors have deposited at sportsbooks using a digital wallet, the latest Skrill innovations will allow operators to better serve these customers, who favour wallets for their transactional security and speed.

After a streamlined registration process with Skrill that links bank accounts to the wallet and takes just seconds, players can use Skrill to deposit instantly yet securely into sportsbook accounts via online bank transfer.

Zak Cutler, President of Global Gaming at Paysafe, says: “Since we first rolled out the new Skrill in the US two years ago, we feel it has been a game changer for the payments experience of American players.

“We expect the upgraded wallet to be just as well received north of the border, with Skrill giving Ontarian operators a competitive edge when it comes to acquiring and retaining their customers.”
