Specialist payments platform Paysafe has agreed an expanded partnership with online and mobile sports betting platform FOX Bet, operated by Flutter Entertainment plc.

Building on Paysafe integrations across multiple states, FOX Bet has now strengthened its Michigan sportsbook payment offering with the Skrill digital wallet and paysafecard ecash solution.

Paysafe has simplified payments for Flutter Entertainment’s Betfair and PokerStars brands for more than a decade, and its Skrill solution is already integrated with FOX Bet’s offering in Colorado, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Players in Michigan who want to bet on FOX Bet’s range of sports markets – from NFL football, NBA basketball, MLB baseball and NHL hockey, to Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and local and international football games – can use Skrill to make fast and secure deposits to your sportsbook accounts.

Paysafecard is now also available to make deposits with FOX Bet in Michigan and becomes the brand’s first integrated ecash solution for players whose payment preference is in cash.

Available at thousands of US retailers, the solution can be purchased in $10, $25, $50 and $100 denominations, providing consumers with a 16-digit code to make online deposits.

In addition to deposits, the expanded Paysafe partnership supports payments. Winnings can be withdrawn directly into Michigan players’ Skrill accounts and then transferred in real-time to their bank accounts. Customers can also use the Skrill Visa prepaid card to withdraw winnings as cash from an ATM.

Philip McHugh, CEO of Paysafe, said: “We are pleased to strengthen our partnership with FOX Bet. Americans are enthusiastically embracing alternative payment methods, hence the integration of our best Skrill and paysafecard solutions, both specifically tailored to betting will ensure that FOX Bet offers all the different ways players want to pay when they play.”
