Nuvei to boost 888 payment capabilities in extended partnership

Nuvei has been selected by igaming operator 888 to boost its card acquiring and local payment method capabilities, accelerating the company’s growth in the US. 

888 is leveraging Nuvei’s technology platform, instant bank-to-bank payments, and knowledge of regulated igaming markets to maximise payments acceptance and optimise its risk management.

Nuvei CEO, Philip Fayer, commented: “We’re thrilled to continue to grow our relationship with 888 and support its global expansion in the US and beyond. 

“Instant, convenient, and secure deposits and payouts are critical to winning players in the rapidly expanding US igaming landscape. 

“Optimising card payment acceptance is a key component of the cashier experience, and Nuvei has decades of experience supporting operators to maximise their revenue growth.”

Supporting its growth in the US is the latest expansion of Nuvei’s global partnership with 888, including an existing relationship driving enhanced player experience at the cashier. 

Nuvei has provided payment services to 888 in Europe since 2017 and enabled the operator to launch in Ontario, Canada when the province launched its regulated igaming market in April 2022.

In addition to enabling 888 to accept deposits, players can also withdraw funds from their accounts directly to their bank card or via Nuvei instant bank transfer. 

888 VP of US Marketing, Noam Klivitzky, added: “Enabling players to deposit and withdraw funds from their igaming accounts seamlessly and securely is critical to the overall platform experience. 

“At 888, we’re committed to offering the most comprehensive igaming experience in the market, so we’re excited to add Nuvei’s card-acquiring capabilities alongside its Instant Bank Transfer solution. 

“Nuvei has a rich heritage of enabling igaming operators to maximise their payments’ performance in regulated markets across the globe.”
