Esports betting operator Luckbox have extended their partnership with leading integrated payments platform Paysafe to offer two new payment options for players. Luckbox will be rolling out payment options for Skrill and NETELLER as part of the integrated payment platform offered by Paysafe.
These new payment options will be provided to customers in more than 100 countries worldwide. As part of the Paysafe platform, they will have access to plenty of payment options including Paysafe’s own Rapid Transfer, the instant secured bank payment option.
Research from Paysafe
According to research from Paysafe that was conducted with 2,000 online sports bettors in the United States during December 2020, there are certain issues that bettors face when paying online. The data showed that 40% of sports bettors that have tried to make an account deposit using a bank card have experienced at least one card decline and 43% have changed their preferred online sportsbook due to declined transactions.
These are not insignificant numbers especially when it comes to betting sites. The most important thing that a betting site should provide their customers is a sense of reliability and trust. If they can’t uphold that, it doesn’t look good for their future. The majority of players also stated that depositing via a digital wallet is either their first or second preferred payment method, with one-third (32%) stating that it is their current payment method of choice.
The partnership between Luckbox and Paysafe
This is the newest collaboration between Luckbox and Paysafe that continues their partnership after a recent agreement between the two companies saw Luckbox join forces with Paysafe’s marketing technology and services provider Income Access to launch its new affiliate programme and new bonus offers.
Quentin Martin, CEO at Luckbox, said:
“We are delighted to be working with Skrill and NETELLER, two of the most prestigious payment brands in the gambling industry. This agreement ensures we have payment options available to players in key markets for us, not least in Latin America, Europe, and the CIS region, where esports betting is hugely popular. Skrill and NETELLER are highly trusted brands and help us offer a seamless onboarding process for new players as well as an improved user experience for our existing players.”
Lorenzo Pellegrino, CEO of Skrill, NETELLER, and Income Access at Paysafe Group, added:
“Luckbox is on an exciting growth journey in the gaming industry and we are excited to be working with them on multiple fronts to serve the global esports community. Payments is a key consideration for players as they choose and stay with an operator, so the checkout is a critically important part of the customer experience to get right.”
The importance of payment options
Skrill and NETELLER are two of the most trusted payment options in the online betting and gambling scene. By extending their partnership with Paysafe, Luckbox have improved their already stellar options of safe and reliable payment services as well as great esports odds. Certain banks and payment options take a negative view on gambling transactions and may block payments made to even the most trustworthy betting operators. By providing a wider option of payment methods, Luckbox can ensure their players have access to the services they require.
