Nuvei ups US wagering prospects securing Indiana systems approval

North American payment systems and platform provider Nuvei has advanced its US wagering profile by confirming that it has secured a ‘technology partner certificate’ awarded by the state of Indiana.

Recognised as a significant ‘2020 corporate objective’,  Nuvei payment systems have been approved and accredited as an authorised technology by the Indiana Gaming Commission (IGC).

The IGC will allow Nuvei to service its full-suite of payment systems to licensed land-based casinos and online sportsbooks, adhering to state laws on wagering transactions and the verification of betting customers aged over 21.  

Indiana launched its new gambling framework in autumn 2019, allowing sportsbooks to secure state-licensed wagering partnerships with established casino incumbents.

At present, five sportsbooks have launched in the Hoosier State: DraftKings, FanDuel, Pointsbet, Unibet and BetRivers.

Montreal-based Nuvei actively targets growth in the US wagering market, following its $900 million acquisition of former LSE omnichannel payment solution provider SafeCharge in 2019.

Founded in 2006 by igaming figurehead Teddy Sagi, SafeCharge maintains one of the igaming’s biggest payment gateways  

Philip Fayer, Nuvei’s chairman and CEO, said: “Nuvei’s approval to transact in the State of Indiana is just the beginning of our efforts to expand into US markets.

“We are excited to be able to bring our innovative, revenue-enhancing payment technology stack to Indiana, with an eye toward further expansion in states that have legalised online sports betting.”
