OKTO develops EU presence with Certus deal

OKTO has revealed the latest step in its European growth strategy by partnering with casino management system Certus Technologies.

The deal will see OKTO’s digital payments deployed to gaming machines across the Certus partnership network in France and the Netherlands. 

Jean Louis Fiorucci, Co-Founder & CTO of Certus Technologies, said: “We are excited to be launching this partnership with OKTO. Integrating OKTO’s advanced digital payments technology with our cutting-edge casino management system, to deliver frictionless payments experiences that players expect, resulting in higher containment rates, an increase in different customer segments and better monitoring in players’ safety.” 

This is the latest in OKTO’s venture to expand across Europe, with the company recently making the headlines in Romania as it partnered with local sports betting power Superbet Group.

Theo Engelis, OKTO’s Gaming Partnerships & New Markets Director, added: “OKTO is committed to delivering powerful payments technology blended with responsible gaming tools that retail operators need to provide their users and working with partners to expand into new markets.

“Our partnership with Certus is well-timed, ahead of the biggest, and most influential business-to-business show for all sectors of the international gaming industry – ICE London. We are in line with Certus in our mission to meet equally gaming operators and player demands for frictionless and immersive payment experiences.”
