SafeCharge to boost Fortuna Entertainment’s payment capabilities

Central and eastern European gaming and betting operator Fortuna Entertainment Group has rolled-out a new link-up with SafeCharge, as the Nuvei company launches into new European markets.

Debuting in both Slovakia and the Czech Republic, while further developing payment processing capabilities in existing countries, including Romania and Croatia, the link-up allows Fortuna to accept all popular, local payment methods specific to each country as it aims to deliver a frictionless player experience.

Advanced pre-deposit verification flows for credit cards and alternative payment methods were developed to comply with each country’s individual regulatory compliance requirements. 

Furthermore, intelligent risk management solutions were configured to minimise potential fraud and chargebacks, as were automated know your customer and anti-money laundering checks before payouts.

“As we work towards further growing our gaming operations in this region, it is essential for us to have a payment partner with the level of technology and capabilities required to flourish,” stated Nicklas Zajdel, group chief operating officer of Fortuna Entertainment Group

“Central and eastern Europe have strict regulations, unique payment methods and local currencies that must be addressed. By leveraging SafeCharge’s technology and deep knowledge of local gaming regulations, we are in a perfect position to establish a major foothold in this region and beyond.”

The latest European expansion follows Swiss operator Grand Casino Baden partnering with SafeCharge to process credit card payments for its Gamanza powered gaming platform jackpots.ch.

“We are delighted to broaden our business scope with Fortuna and to empower them with a seamless expansion into new, lucrative markets,” Yuval Ziv, MD of SafeCharge and head of global acquiring, said of the group’s latest growth. 

“As long-time partners, it was important for our dedicated professional services and development teams to support Fortuna’s growth by playing an integral role in their ongoing success. 

“We feel that our advanced and flexible technology platform is the best choice for gaming operators to comply with each country’s requirements, whilst delivering a localised user experience for their players.”
