Swiss operator Grand Casino Baden has partnered with SafeCharge, a Nuvei company, to process credit card payments for its Gamanza powered gaming platform

SafeCharge offers Visa and Mastercard acquiring services issued by Swiss banks and also connects to more than 180 payment methods including Post Finance, the financial services unit of Swiss Post.

Grand Casino Baden states that the deal allows it “the ability to better address the needs of a growing audience of online gamers,” with SafeCharge aiming to showcase its capabilities of addressing the needs of the growing Swiss online market.

“We are delighted to be working with the team at Grand Casino Baden to provide payments for its rapidly growing igaming operation,” stated Yuval Ziv, MD of SafeCharge and head of global acquiring

“This partnership marked our entrance into the Swiss online gaming market, and we are excited at the prospect of our payments technology platform better servicing the region’s customers. 

“As demonstrated by our long-standing collaborations with multiple tier 1 gaming operators, our solution is the ideal choice for institutions who require navigating the regulatory complexities of local markets without compromising user experience.”

Earlier this year Eidgenössische Spielbankenkommission, Switzerland’s Federal Gaming Commission, regulated the country’s online gambling market and subsequently enabled the country’s land-based casinos to operate online.

Through SafeCharge Cashier, the firm is to benefit from a frictionless payment experience for its online customers, delivering seamless deposits and withdrawals as well as compliance with anti-money laundering laws. 

“We knew that we had to partner with a technology player with the highest credentials and the ability to support our business within an extremely complex market, outside of EU legislations,” said Marcel Tobler, chief financial officer at Grand Casino Baden

“SafeCharge has been our preferred choice thanks to its proven track-record in the industry and unrivalled experience in fraud prevention and AML.”
