Paysafe expands to Arkansas through partnership with BetSaracen

Paysafe has entered into its 22nd US state by partnering with BetSaracen to launch its payment products in Arkansas

To commence the partnership, the payments platform will debut its Skrill USA digital wallet to Arkansas bettors and will work with BetSaracen’s mobile sports app, Saracen Casino Resort, to implement frictionless deposits and payouts. 

Skrill USA enables BetSaracen iOS and Android users to fund wagers instantly on BetSaracen’s app, which has undergone a revamp of its registration process allowing users to link bank accounts to their digital wallet. 

By depositing funds to a BetSaracen account ‘in a matter of seconds’ Arkansas bettors will be able to bet on a range of North American and international sports league games. 

Zak Cutler, CEO of North America iGaming at Paysafe, said: “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 players will find our Skrill USA digital wallet a game-changing payment solution for sports wagering.”  

Arkansas BetSaracen customers will also be given the chance to fund their Skrill USA accounts via the Paysafecash eCash solution, which will become available at in store retailers in the Southern state and across the wider US. 

Paysafe and Saracen Casino Resort’s partnership will allow both companies to take advantage of a suite of alternative payment methods for Arkansas and US bettors moving forward

“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 Staffa, 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.”
