Global leader in online payments Optimal Payments along with one of the world’s leading interactive social and mobile casino-themed game providers Caesars Interactive Entertainment (CIE), have formed a strategic partnership to support payments for legalized gaming within the US.
The partnership will show Optimal Payments offering its popular EWallet service NETELLER across Caesars online offerings, CaesarsCasino.com, HarrahsCasino.com and WSOP.com. The electronic wallet will be made available in Nevada and New Jersey where online gambling and casino games have been deemed legal.
“Providing safe, secure and convenient payments to our customers is our top focus and NETELLER allows us to do that. We are thrilled to offer NETELLER in both New Jersey and Nevada effective immediately and anticipate this offering will be a popular choice for existing and new customers,” said Marco Ceccarelli, senior vice president and chief technology officer, CIE.

Optimal Payments has already made the NETELLER service available to residents of Nevada and New Jersey, and along with its new NET+ prepaid MasterCard which links to NETELLER accounts, is currently pushing the service availability to Caesars’ online players.
“Optimal Payments and Caesars Interactive Entertainment have a longstanding partnership that strategically binds our two companies. We already provide CIE with gateway services related to payment processing and now, with the addition of our new NETELLER and Net+ Card stored value offering, we hope to make it even simpler for their consumers in regulated gaming markets to do business with this leader in gaming. We plan to support the company as it rolls out its social gaming offerings in the years ahead,” said Neil Erlick, executive vice-president, business development, Optimal Payments.
