Launched in the U.S. in 2021 and available across all 26 American iGaming jurisdictions where Paysafe supports operators, the upgraded Skrill wallet is now live in Ontario, Canada’s most populated province (14.2m residents) which launched an expanded market for private operators in April 2022. 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.
Now, after a streamlined registration process with Skrill that links Ontarians’ 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. Alternatively, online bettors can load funds to their Skrill wallet balance using the Paysafecash eCash solution. For returning Skrill users, the redeposit process is even more rapid, skipping log-in (when ‘remember me’ is activated) to deposit with a single click.
Ontarians will also enjoy the wallet’s state-of-the-art ‘look and feel’, with Skrill boasting a seamless UX across desktop, iOS and Android apps that meets the transactional expectations of casual players to high-stakes VIP sports bettors moving money across multiple sportsbooks.
