DIMOCO, EnergyBet unveil payments venture
DIMOCO Carrier Billing has linked up with EnergyBet to develop a new payment solution for the online gaming industry.
The two companies said that the partnership will allow gambling customers to access carrier billing and use smartphones, tablets, laptops, PCs and connected televisions, securely identified via their carrier networks, to take part in online gaming activities.
DIMOCO added that EnergyBet can utilise its direct billing connectivity to major telecoms networks to gain billing reach to more than 70 million mobile customers in the UK.
Marcin Sapinski, chief executive of EnergyBet, said: “DIMOCO’s extensive European presence and FinTech philosophy position the company at the forefront of mobile technology.
“DIMOCO is the natural partner to further enhance EnergyBet’s market position as the innovative and award-winning sportsbook.”
Rafal Nowak, programme director, igaming, at DIMOCO, added: “After two years of European-wide development, DIMOCO is officially activating carrier billing within the igaming industry, with only the locally-regulated igaming operators having the opportunity to take advantage of this payment method.
“We selected 10 markets for initial tests with the most innovative igaming operators and decided to kick-off our initiative in the homeland of online gambling – the UK.
“With EnergyBet as our inaugural partner, this is the first time carrier billing will be integrated and activated with a serious international igaming operator and licensed in multiple territories across Europe.”
