Company recognized for tech upgrade of Skrill USA digital wallet to support instant funding of deposits and payouts plus VIP player program 

Paysafe, a leading specialized payments platform, has won in the ‘Payment Innovation of the Year’ award category at the 2022 SBC Awards North America, held Thursday, July 14th, at Pier Sixty in New York City. The award recognizes the product revamp of Paysafe’s Skrill USA digital wallet to enable players to instantly fund iGaming deposits and receive payouts, while also tailoring the wallet for high-stakes bettors with a VIP player program.

Held on the final evening of this year’s SBC Summit North America gaming industry conference in New Jersey, the 2022 SBC Awards North America honored the U.S. and Canadian iGaming operators and service providers like Paysafe that have excelled and innovated in their business areas over the last 12 months. Last October for the NFL season, Paysafe unveiled the revamped Skrill USA wallet, which now allows players to log-in and fund their player accounts within seconds through instant online bank transfer.

Boasting a state-of-the-art ‘look and feel’ and all-new user experience (UX), the upgraded Skrill USA wallet enables players to access their winnings in their Skrill account in real-time. Payouts can then be transferred into players’ linked bank accounts.

Paysafe continued to bolster the Skrill USA wallet into 2022 with the launch of a VIP player program in May. The program caters to high-stakes U.S. sports bettors and iGaming players, a customer segment that prefers digital wallets over all other payment methods, according to Paysafe’s 2021 iGaming research. Through the program, operators can set single transaction limits for players that are as much as several hundred times the Skrill USA wallet’s standard limit, depending on individual KYC verification.

Zak Cutler, EVP and President of Global Gaming at Paysafe, said: “We’re honored to receive the ‘Payment Innovation’ Award at this year’s SBC Awards North America for our all-new Skrill USA digital wallet. The award recognizes Skrill USA as a game-changer for U.S. iGaming brands and their players, especially their VIP customers, and it reflects the incredible dedication and passion of our entire team, who continue to knock it out the park.”

BettorEdge, a no-fee social betting marketplace connecting sports fans, won the Rising Star of the Year award at the 2022 SBC Awards North America, held on July 14 in New York City. Held annually, the awards recognize the expertise and innovation in the North American betting and gaming industry. BettorEdge was up against other successful products and brands this year, including Fubo Gaming, PrizePicks, and MaximBet.

“This exciting recognition from SBC is a testament to the space we have built for sports bettors that caters to the betting experience they are craving,” said Greg Kajewski, Co-Founder of BettorEdge. “We’ll continue to innovate and put the bettor first.”

In its first 18 months of operation, BettorEdge has grown to a community of almost 11,000 users, who have bet $40 million in orders collectively. The social betting marketplace has also achieved a 75% user retention rate, far above research that shows an average of only 40% retention after a customer first downloads a mobile app (Apptentive).

The platform took off this past March when it saw more than $3 million in orders on NCAA Conference Tournament Basketball games and NCAA Tournament games. Now, BettorEdge users are betting more than $1 million per week.

Kajewski and his co-founder, James Seils, incorporated a strong community aspect into the platform. On BettorEdge, users can opt to donate the fee they saved by using BettorEdge to one of the company’s charitable partners. In the first year since launch, about one fourth of users have opted into the donation service, making up a significant portion of a $10,000 donation that was given to Chad Greenway’s Lead the Way Foundation earlier this year.

“We’re grateful to have our work building BettorEdge recognized thus far, but we have far bigger plans in store,” said James Seils, Co-Founder of BettorEdge. “We are clearly fulfilling a need in the marketplace. Keep your eye on BettorEdge for more exciting features and opportunities to bet on the sports you love.”
