Unikrn calls for payment systems makeover with Nuvei

Active in 24 markets, ‘including 41 US states’, Unikrn has selected Nuvei to overhaul its group payment services, maximising payment processing and withdrawal options for its global player base.

Unikrn confirmed that it will utilise Nuvei technologies as its lead payment gateway, securing over 450 alternative payment methods (APMs) servicing 150 currencies worldwide to strengthen its platform for imminent growth within the burgeoning esports wagering sector,

Further services will see Unikrn benefit from Nuvei’s customised ‘Cashier’ payment page, allowing customers to process deposits and withdrawals instantly through a secure single interface – simplifying customer journey to deposit and redeem funds options.

“Unikrn offers our global customer base access to an unrivalled spectrum of gaming experiences without interruption,” said Rahul Sood, co-founder of Unikrn.

“Nuvei was the best option for us to ensure we meet these expectations and offer a platform that will scale with our rapid growth. Cashier makes our customers’ payment journey safe and seamless. We look forward to working with Nuvei for many years to come.”
