Paysafe expands into Louisiana and Oregon


Payment platform Paysafe has expanded into the legal mobile sports betting markets of both Louisiana and Oregon.

Paysafe will now makes its payment services available to players in both states, while it will also power igaming affiliate programs in Louisiana through its Income Access business.

The payment provider will initially go live in Louisiana with Caesars Entertainment and DraftKings, having extended existing agreements with both operators, while the platform will also work with WynnBet in the state.

Affiliate-focused deals are also in place with a number of licensed sportsbook operators in Louisiana, including Caesars.

In Oregon, Paysafe will enter the market with DraftKings, an operator the platform has had a partnership in place with since 2013 and spans 17 states across the US.

The double launch means Paysafe is now supporting sportsbook operators with payments and affiliate marketing in 20, having also launched in New York last month, as well as Washington D.C.

“We’re proud to be supporting multiple operators in the new Louisiana mobile sports-betting market with two important pillars of their customer acquisition and ultimately revenue growth – payments and affiliate marketing,” Paysafe’s chief executive of igaming in North America Zak Cutler said.

“When our Oregon market entry is also factored in, we feel our position as the go-to igaming partner for online payment solutions and the affiliate channel has never been stronger.”
