Sbobet, an online sportsbook with operations in Asia and Europe, has selected Neovia Financial, the independent global online payments business, to process payments for its sports betting websites.
As well as its sportsbook brand sbobet.com, Sbobet is about to launch the first ‘live dealer’ casino, licensed by the Isle of Man Government, casino.sbobet, which will also use Neovia to process payments. Both of these sites will be using the Neteller e-wallet and the Netbanx payment gateway from the Neovia payment suite for international processing, including across Europe and Asia.
Sbobet chose the Neovia payment suite because of its ability to take direct payments via a single supplier from around the world in a secure environment.
William Mummery, executive director at Sbobet, said: “We’re working with Neovia as its solutions strengthen the offering to our customers while providing us with security and a business edge. We see tremendous scope for developing our B2C offering from our Isle of Man presence to a global audience.”
