Paysafe is thrilled to introduce its newly improved Skrill digital wallet, catering to the online betting market in Ontario, Canada’s most populous province. Designed to address the unique payment preferences of iGaming enthusiasts, the updated Skrill wallet enables users in Ontario to quickly fund bets, seamlessly withdraw winnings, and delight in an optimized user experience (UX).
Initially launched in the U.S. in 2021 and accessible in all 26 American iGaming jurisdictions supported by Paysafe, the enhanced Skrill wallet has now made its debut in Ontario. The province, home to 14.6 million residents, opened its doors to an expanded market for private operators in April 2022. Paysafe’s 2023 All the Ways Players Pay research highlights that 73% of Ontario’s online sports bettors have made deposits at sportsbooks using a digital wallet, emphasizing the demand for Skrill’s advanced features, which provide transactional security and swiftness.
Skrill’s streamlined registration process connects users’ bank accounts to the wallet in mere seconds. Ontarians can then deposit funds securely and instantly into sportsbook accounts via online bank transfer, or opt to add funds to their Skrill wallet balance using the Paysafecash eCash solution. For existing Skrill customers, the redeposit process is even quicker, allowing single-click deposits when the “remember me” option is enabled.
The updated Skrill wallet also features a cutting-edge design, offering a smooth UX across desktop, iOS, and Android platforms that caters to the diverse transactional needs of casual to high-stakes VIP sports bettors. A tiled display centralizes all essential information, ensuring a seamless depositing experience.
Withdrawing funds is equally effortless, as winnings become instantly available in users’ Skrill accounts. Players can choose to spend their earnings online at Skrill-supported merchants or transfer the funds to their connected bank accounts.
Zak Cutler, President of Global Gaming at Paysafe, commented, “The new Skrill has proven to be a game-changer for the American online gaming market since its initial launch two years ago. We are confident that the enhanced wallet will receive a similarly warm welcome in Ontario, providing operators with a competitive advantage in attracting and retaining customers.”
