The latest gambling reports coming from Alberta saw the announcement of the collaboration between NeoPollard Interactive and Paysafe. Both organizations will be tasked with regulating the province’s online lottery offerings available on PlayAlberta.ca. Prior to that Paysafe has been processing many of the Canadian province’s online payments and through this agreement NeoPollard Interactive will be able to gain access to the local virtual markets.
The online casino platform for the province was launched in 2020 by Alberta Gaming, Liquor, and Cannabis, which is in charge of the province’s gambling matters. Many of Canada’s gambling regulators have already acquired Paysafe’s services for their respective online platform transactions. The payment platform is relied on by Atlantic Lottery Corporation, British Columbia Lottery Corporation, Loto-Québec, and Ontario Lottery and Gaming.
Thanks to the recently signed agreement between the two organizations, NeoPollard Banknote will be able to leverage Paysafe’s propriety payment gateway for its premium portfolio of iLottery titles and offerings on PlayAlberta.ca. Now, the content provider will be able to offer its world-renowned online lottery games via Paysafe’s payment gateway which has proven to be a secure method of withdrawing and depositing currency in many of the county’s online gambling platforms.
Alberta’s virtual gaming platform offers a great variety of entertainment for its residents, thanks to a broad range of digital slots, table games, and last but not least online lottery solutions. Players will be more than happy to see the addition of new and improved products with the provider’s eInstant and instant technologies. The gambling platform is a great example of the Crown corporation’s long-term plan and vision for the online industry.
The renowned lottery content supplier has already implemented a full suite of accomplished services as a main contracted operator for the province’s platform. Starting with its Customer Engagement Marketing tool that is devoted to maintaining a strong player flow from acquisition to conversion to retention. Then, there are other premium services for player’s convenience such as Customer Support Center, which offers phone, e-mail, and chat support.
Gregory Kirstein, Director of Business Development for iGaming at Paysafe shared his satisfaction over the joint Albertan project. He stated that the agreement further cements the company’s leading position in North America’s gambling sectors. Liz Siver, General Manager of NeoPollard Interactive also praised their partners and stated that it’s an honor for the content provider to offer its services to the province of Alberta.
Summer 2020 Announcement
Albertan gaming enthusiasts are more than familiar with the lottery content supplier’s range of products. The Crown agency has already acquired some of the provider’s iLottery solutions to its online platform after its launch in late 2020. The collaboration of the two corporations was announced last summer, and ever since then, they have teamed up to offers players the best possible gaming experience around.
Single-Event Betting Backing
Besides, always striving to improve its online gaming offerings Alberta Gaming, Liquor & Cannabis is looking for other ways of improving the country’s gambling scenery. That is why most recently the Crown agency showed its backing for the proposed Bill C-218, which will allow Canadians to finally place bets on single-game events such as the Super Bowl.
