BetSaracen to ‘facilitate’ sports wagering via Paysafe payment solution


Specialised payments platform Paysafe has entered into the Arkansas mobile sports betting market through a partnership with BetSaracen, the sportsbook app from Saracen Casino Resort in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. 

Marking the platform’s 22nd US igaming market entry, the partnership will see BetSaracen integrate Paysafe’s Skrill USA digital wallet, allowing sports bettors in the state to instantly fund a wager with “frictionless deposits and payouts” using the company’s iOS and Android apps.

Beyond the digital wallet, BetSaracen’s connectivity to the Paysafe platform will allow the operator to access the company’s full suite of payment methods going forward.  

Zak Cutler, CEO of North America igaming at Paysafe, stated: “We’re proud to expand into the Arkansas igaming market with an established local operator that has strong brand recognition in the state and in neighbouring Oklahoma, where the Quapaw Nation are based. 

“We’re confident that BetSaracen’s players will find our Skrill USA digital wallet a game-changing payment solution for sports wagering.”  

Skrill USA allows players to link their bank accounts, where they can then deposit into their BetSaracen account with an instant online bank transfer.

Alternatively, BetSaracen customers can fund their Skrill USA accounts by entering their debit or credit card information, or by using Paysafe’s Paysafecash online cash, or ecash, solution.  

With funds accessible in their Skrill USA accounts in real time, customers can cash out once their bank accounts are linked to the app.

“When partnering with Paysafe, we were impressed by the ease of use of the company’s payment solutions and Skrill USA in particular,” added Carlton Saffa, Chief Market Officer at Saracen Casino Resort and BetSaracen.

“With Skrill USA, we know we’re offering Arkansans a best-in-class digital wallet that facilitates and enhances the wagering experience with the BetSaracen mobile sportsbook app.”
