OKTO has formed a partnership with betting operator MaxBet.ro to provide its OKTO.Cash e-Voucher solution in the Romanian market.

The agreement will see MaxBet.ro enable its users in the country to top-up their igaming accounts using OKTO’s offering, allowing ‘secure, fast and easy’ e-Voucher transactions.

Praised as a ‘groundbreaking’ e-Voucher payments solution by MaxBet CEO, Victor Rusinov, OKTO.CASH has been tailored by its operator to meet the new client’s requirements.

“Our proprietary technology is fully integrated into the MaxBet.ro mobile app and website which enables customers to replenish their accounts in real time via OKTO.CASH,” said Liviu Popovici, OKTO’s Romania Country Representative.

“It means that players can load their online accounts without having to leave either the operator’s mobile app or their site. The OKTO.CASH journey is seamless and consistent with the demands of 21st century consumers who want and expect a convenient, streamlined, zero-hassle eCash solution.

“There’s no such thing as a one size fits all solution, instead OKTO works with the operator to establish a payment method that meets the needs of the market and is adjusted to satisfy local preferences. The topping-up process is not only straightforward and easy to use but it can also be undertaken in real time and at over 16,000 point-of-sale in the region.”

The partnership marks OKTO’s second betting related deal of November 2021, following on from an agreement with another Romanian firmMozzart Bet – earlier this month. The partnership also revolved around OKTO.CASH after the operator identified demand for an ‘instant and seamless payment option’.

In October, the digital payments provider signed a double partnership with Merkur Slots and Merkur Bingo in a UK-facing deal, making its e-Voucher wallet system available at 20 Merkur venues throughout the country.

Commenting on his company’s agreement with OKTO, Rusinov said: “Trust and integrity are at the core of our relationship with OKTO. Our collaboration with OKTO started out of the wish to offer the ideal solution for users who enjoy all the benefits of online but still prefer to transact offline. 

“We are always looking for new ways to facilitate our players’ experience and the fact that they are now able to top up their online player accounts instantly in a fast, easy, and secure way, gives us confidence that it was the best decision. We have been impressed by the technology, which is tried and tested, and by the brand’s ability to deliver a next-gen mobile-first experience that’s reliable, seamless, and secure.”
