Review ICE TOTALLY GAMING


Skrill’s Mark Carter at ICE.


THE SKRILL WITH 1-TAP Online payments company, Skrill, was at ICE showcasing its Skrill 1-Tap, to enable quick and easy mobile payments


Skrill 1-Tap connects with Skrill’s Digital Wallet to offer quick and easy mobile payments to customers and merchants alike. Over the next five years, the number of mobile or tablet owners using their devices to game is predicted to increase by 100m, meaning that 164m people will place a bet, visit a mobile casino or buy a lottery ticket on their mobile device in 2018.


By using Skrill 1-Tap, customers can make payments in ‘one tap’ on any device, rather than having to repeatedly enter their login details or sensitive credit card information. Customers’ payment details are saved after the initial payment made via Skrill, so the 1-Tap functionality is enabled next time they log on to a site such as Betfred.com.


Paul Barclay, VP of Leisure, Entertainment and Technology at Skrill, commented: “Whether it is banking, shopping or gaming, we are all doing so much more on the go. The future is mobile and Skrill’s focus on innovation means we are able to meet customer needs, delivering an enhanced, more convenient experience and a product that suits their lives. We are delighted that Skrill 1-Tap is fast becoming the preferred option for mobile payments in the gaming sector. 1 -Tap has been designed to streamline the deposit process into one step. By linking to the user’s digital wallet account, 1-Tap makes it significantly easier for players to add funds without having to re-enter their personal details, thereby increasing conversion rates for merchants and providing a smooth user experience for gamers.”


The product has since been snapped up by Betfred. Dennis Luckett Head of Payments at Betfred.com said: “We want to be No.1 for mobile betting by making the experience as convenient as possible for customers. They expect to be able to manage all their online accounts on the move and so giving them this ability, and ensuring payment is quick and easy, is a huge priority for us. With Skrill 1-Tap, we know we have a solution that will deliver.”


Mr. Barclay added: "We already work with the vast majority of the global gaming market and exhibiting at the show, as well as our role as the official payments sponsor, highlights our ongoing commitment to this market. Skrill makes it simpler for online gamblers to manage their funds quickly, safely and easily and is one of Europe's largest online payments systems with 36 million account holders. Our worldwide payment network offers businesses access to direct payment processing via 100 payment options in 200 countries and over 40 currencies.”
