Financial technologies innovator, Mazooma Incorporated, has announced the signing of an agreement that is to see online casino and sportsbetting operator, Kindred Group, utilize its eCheck Select payments solution in New Jersey.
According to an official Monday press release published by European Gaming Media and Events, the Las Vegas-headquartered developer detailed that its eCheck Select advance can confirm a bettor’s account balance in real-time before deciding whether to process or terminate a transaction. It stated that the innovation will also optimize Kindred Group’s online sportsbetting service ‘from start to finish’ by providing it with a range of ‘consumer data’ designed to reduce fraudulent wagers and ‘customer service issues.’
Jamie MacKay, Chief Executive Officer for Mazooma Incorporated, declared that his firm’s eCheck Select service can support payments from a myriad of banks and financial institutions in the United States and will consequently prevent Kindred Group from being hurt by ‘payment interruptions’ caused by ‘the limited acceptance of credit cards in the space.’
MacKay’s statement read…
“We’re proud to be selected as the automated clearing house technology partner for Kindred Group’s United States launch and ongoing operations. With eCheck Select to power positive user experiences, Mazooma Incorporated continues to re-imagine online payments with a focus on technological innovation.”
New Jersey entry:
For its part, Kindred Group inked a ten-year deal with the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Atlantic City in August that is to see it launch an online casino and sportsbetting service for players in New Jersey. The operator, which was previously known as Unibet Group until a 2016 name-change, is already responsible for numerous United Kingdom and Ireland-facing domains including 32Red.com, StanJames.com, Unibet.co.uk and MariaCasino.co.uk and earlier explained that it expects the site for players in ‘The Garden State’ to go live during the first quarter of 2019.
Manuel Stan, Senior Vice-President for the Malta-based operator’s Kindred US subsidiary, proclaimed that Mazooma Incorporated had been selected due to its ‘best-in-breed technology for verified bank payments’ before describing the new alliance as indicative of his firm’s ‘commitment to giving our customers excellent iGaming experiences.’
