Kaizen Gaming recruits Okto for physical-to-digital payment method

Kaizen Gaming has teamed up with digital payments provider Okto to provide players of the Stoiximan and Betano brands with a physical-to-digital payment method.

The former will be providing its proprietary payment technology and its country-by-country national retail networks, which will be reaching over 110,000 points-of-sale across six markets where Kaizen Gaming operates.

Via the Stoiximan.Cash and Betano.Cash mobile on-premise payment solution, players will be enabled to top up their online gaming account instantly through any physical point-of-sale, while never leaving the relevant mobile apps.

“Our partnership with Kaizen Gaming is in line with our mission to digitise the physical payment experience, and provide consumers with the capabilities to transact across multiple channels seamlessly and securely while operating under the umbrella of one of the most recognisable brands in Europe,” noted Kostas Georgoulas, director of strategic accounts of Okto.

“That kind of flexibility speaks to the player, making the payment process frictionless and creating a consistent experience.

“At the core of our offering is a safe, secure and reliable electronic payments platform. Whether it’s mobile, online, or in-shop gaming, we aim to make payments effortless, faster, simple, and safe.”

The solution is now available in Greece and Cyprus under the Stoiximan brand, as well as in Romania under the Betano brand. The next steps will see a further expansion of the solution across Europe

Litsa Katsika, customer account and payments product manager of Kaizen Gaming, explained: “Our goal is to continually improve our products and services to offer the best experience to those who trust us for their entertainment.

“Our cooperation with Okto is based on our common belief that a digitised, seamless and secure payment experience forms an integral part of our members’ overall experience.

“In Okto, we deem the reliable fintech partner and the wide network of point-of-sales nationwide and internationally to be necessary. 

“Both should contribute to rapidly and effectively offering the ultimate payment solution that suits not only the demands of the next-gen player or mobile-first player but also the demands made by those that wish to enjoy the benefits of cash-based transactions.”
