13 November 2023
(PRESS RELEASE) -- Paysafe, a leading payments platform, today announced a new partnership with Fanatics Betting and Gaming, the subsidiary of global digital sports platform Fanatics Holdings Inc. Under the deal, Fanatics Sportsbook has integrated with Paysafe to offer its customers traditional card payments and other alternative payment methods.
Against the backdrop of U.S. online sports bettors’ diversifying payment preferences, Fanatics Sportsbook customers’ transactional expectations will be met through the operator’s partnership with Paysafe. Implemented via a single, streamlined integration, Paysafe’s unique API-based solution provides Fanatics Sportsbook with a range of options for making deposits and receiving payouts.
Paysafe’s support of card transactions allows Fanatics Sportsbook’s customers across Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Ohio, and Tennessee, to seamlessly deposit into their player account using their debit cards. All card deposits are processed in a matter of seconds using the Paysafe payment gateway, which also seamlessly processes player payouts when they cash-out winnings using their eligible cards.
In addition, players who favor using cash in their everyday lives can fund sports bets at Fanatics Sportsbook using Paysafecash, Paysafe’s barcode-based online cash solution. Fanatics Sportsbook customers can also choose from an array of other APMs through the Paysafe platform’s connectivity to various third-party providers.
Following the operator’s regulatory approval in several other U.S. iGaming jurisdictions, Fanatics Sportsbook’s partnership with Paysafe is expected to expand into new states imminently.
Zak Cutler, President of Global Gaming at Paysafe, said: “With the stature of the Fanatics brand in the sports world, we’re proud to partner with Fanatics Betting and Gaming to provide Fanatics Sportsbook and its customers with an unparalleled payments experience. We’re confident that our ‘all in one’ payment solution will exceed the transactional expectations of Fanatics Sportsbook’s diverse customer base and support the brand’s growth in its current and future markets.”
