Absolute Poker Launches Citadel's Instant Internet Banking

30 October 2008

On Tuesday, ESI Entertainment Systems Inc. announced that Citadel Commerce, a wholly owned subsidiary, will provide its Instant Internet Banking service to AbsolutePoker.com.

Under the terms of the agreement, the Tokwiro-owned online poker room Absolute Poker has begun using Citadel's white-label payment service under the name “Fast Bank Transfer” to provide online bank transfers to its players in more than 40 countries -- excluding the United States.

"Ultimately, our aim is to improve the player experience at Absolute Poker, and the immediacy of “Fast Bank Transfer” will impress our players with how quick, easy and secure payments can be made," said Paul Leggett, chief operating officer for Tokwiro, in a prepared statement.
