Montreal, Canada (June 29, 2018) – Paysafe, a leading global payments provider, has been named winner of two awards at the fourth annual EGR North America Awards ceremony in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania last night. The first accolade for the company was to Income Access, Paysafe’s marketing technology and services provider who won its fourth consecutive ‘Acquisition & Retention Partner of the Year’ award. Paysafe then earned further recognition when the company was named ‘Payments Company of the Year’ for the second time, first being in 2015 under Optimal Payments.
The EGR North America Awards celebrate excellence in the North American online gaming industry, honouring the iGaming operators, land-based casinos and service providers who have shown outstanding performance and innovation over the past 12 months. By awarding these two accolades to Paysafe, EGR’s judges acknowledged the company’s continuing impact as a key player in the iGaming, e-sports, and online gambling sectors, whether it’s Paysafe’s payment products and services such as payment processing, digital wallets and paysafecard or Income Access’ technology and digital marketing solutions.
Commenting on the two awards, Paysafe’s EVP of Business Development, Neil Erlick said: “In the post-PASPA American landscape, winning these two awards speaks volumes to the value that Paysafe and Income Access brings the industry in North America. At Paysafe, we remain committed to delivering leading and differentiated solutions as we understand how to help gaming operators stay ahead of the curve.”
Erlick added “Being selected for this accolade and seeing our efforts recognised by industry peers is the greatest honour of them all. We look forward to continuing to play a pioneering part in payments and customer acquisition for the gaming and lottery industries.”
