Paysafe expands New York sports-betting presence with Resorts WorldBET
By Edlyn Cardoza
Paysafe, a leading specialized payments platform, recently announced a partnership with Resorts WorldBET, the new mobile sports betting app for Resorts World New York, with brick-and-mortar casinos Resorts World Catskills (RWC) and Resorts World New York City (RWNYC). Already facilitating payments for multiple New York mobile sportsbooks since the market’s launch in January, Paysafe now enables players to make deposits with Resorts WorldBET by debit card and ACH, plus receive payouts.
Resorts World’s experience operating a retail sportsbook at its Catskills and Las Vegas properties enabled the operator to listen to its players and deliver what New Yorkers truly want in a mobile sports betting app. Resorts WorldBET will further contribute to the company’s development and paves a path to tap into the robust and growing mobile sports-betting market in New York.
Through Paysafe, players wanting to wager on the March college basketball playoffs, a New York Knicks NBA, or New York Giants NFL game can use their debit card to make a mobile deposit in seconds with Resorts WorldBET. Whether the card deposit is made with the Resorts WorldBET iOS or Android apps or mobile and desktop sites, all transactions are processed seamlessly through Paysafe’s best-in-breed payment gateway.
As an alternative, Resorts WorldBET players can also make a deposit using an ACH transfer from their bank account through Paysafe’s connectivity to third-party ACH warranty services. The same integration with ACH partner technology sees Paysafe supporting payouts with Resorts WorldBET, with players able to get real-time access to their winnings through their registered bank account.
Going forward, the Paysafe integration will also allow Resorts WorldBET to activate the company’s suite of alternative payment methods easily. These include Paysafe’s Skrill USA digital wallet, upgraded in Q4 to support near-instant funding of wagers and payouts of winnings, and the Paysafecash and Paysafecard eCash solutions.
Zak Cutler, CEO of North America iGaming at Paysafe, said: “We’re excited to partner with Resorts WorldBET, Resorts World New York’s state-of-the-art mobile sports-betting app. Given the strong correlation between payments and U.S. sportsbooks’ player acquisition, we look forward to helping Resorts WorldBET increase its customer base and revenue in 2022 and beyond.”
Darlene Monzo, Chief Marketing Officer, Genting America’s East, which operates Resorts World New York, commented: “We’re excited to offer New Yorkers the fastest, most reliable and safest mobile sports-betting experience. Paysafe’s platform provides the most advanced payment processing solution and we’re proud to have them on our team.”
