888 has agreed to a payments partnership with Nuvei Corporation to bolster its payment method capabilities and increase acceptance rates.

The operator will be able to provide an array of payment options to its customer thanks to the deal with the Canadian fintech company, improving the player experience as a result, as well as optimising risk management.

Noam Klivitzky, VP of US Marketing at 888, commented: “Enabling players to deposit and withdraw funds from their igaming accounts seamlessly and securely is critical to the overall platform experience. 

“At 888 we’re committed to offering the most comprehensive igaming experience in the market, so we’re excited to add Nuvei’s card-acquiring capabilities alongside its Instant Bank Transfer solution. Nuvei has a rich heritage of enabling igaming operators to maximise their payments’ performance in regulated markets across the globe.”

With Nuvei’s technology platform, 888 customers will be able to instantly withdraw funds from their accounts directly to their bank card or via Nuvei Instant Bank Transfer, an instant account-to-account deposits and payouts payment method. 

Nuvei has been the payments partner for 888 in Europe since 2017. The two parties have also been collaborating in Ontario, Canada since April last year.

“We’re thrilled to continue to grow our relationship with 888 and support its global expansion in the US and beyond,” added Philip Fayer, CEO and Chair of Nuvei.

“Instant, convenient, and secure deposits and payouts are critical to winning players in the rapidly expanding US igaming landscape. Optimising card payment acceptance is a key component of the cashier experience, and Nuvei has decades of experience supporting operators to maximise their revenue growth.”
