OKTO has teamed up with Inspired Entertainment to expand the network of gaming machines in the UK leisure sector that accept the OKTO app for mobile cashless payments.
The deal marks the start of a strategic partnership between OKTO and Inspired across different channels. Responding to increasing demand for a cashless ecosystem, the fintech provider will offer its fully licensed OKTO.WALLET electronic money payment platform on Inspired gaming machines across UK pubs, delivering an enhanced payment experience.
Thanks to the collaboration between OKTO and Inspired, even more pubgoers will now be able to deposit and withdraw funds on gaming machines in a safe, transparent, seamless, and fast way through the OKTO mobile app while at the same time benefitting from the use of a range of integrated social responsibility tools designed to enhance player protection and encourage safer gambling.
The partnership secures broader payment options for consumers and increases customer engagement and footfall, giving a boost after the pandemic to the leisure and gaming sectors. The OKTO app includes a secure Know Your Customer process along with age verification and also provides facilities for consumers to enable transaction limits and time-out breaks.
Meeting all the niche demands of the leisure and gaming sectors and their users, the OKTO.WALLET platform allows pubgoers to move funds instantly across the entire payment ecosystem via the open and interconnected OKTO mobile app that can be used in all touchpoints of the venue and beyond through the OKTO Prepaid Mastercard linked to the users’ OKTO wallet account.
The solution will be launched with Inspired’s key pub retail partners in September and will be available on Inspired’s latest range of Category C gaming products.
