23 septembrie 2022

Game World Romania, a leader in the entertainment industry in Romania, is rolling out OKTO’s cashless, mobile-first, responsible payments in its high-end Game World Bucharest Mall Vitan venue, the largest gambling hall in South-East Europe.

„The award-winning OKTO.WALLET payment app and platform are now available on the first set of slot machines and will gradually be available across all slot machines and electronic roulettes of the main venue, with further rollout across the entire Game World network to follow.” – according to the press release.

The new service introduced by Game World in the region is made possible thanks to OKTO’s expertise in e-money services and payment technologies for gaming operators and their customers.

„The rollout marks a significant step forward in the ongoing digital transformation of Romania’s entertainment industry, driving the adoption of digital payment solutions and providing customers with a secure, convenient, flexible, and affordable digital wallet to manage their funds at any time and from anywhere.” – the company explains.

Simon Dorsen, OKTO CCO, says: “This is another major partnership and one that we are incredibly pleased to confirm with Game World, one of the most respected and recognized operators in the Romanian gaming market. OKTO views Romania as a core strategy territory and will seek to continue investing in the market.

We are glad to provide mobile-first cashless payment experiences in an extremely important and substantial market. OKTO.WALLET ticks a number of important boxes for operators, regulators, and players alike. Our solution is entirely software-driven, and because it provides a fast, smooth, and trouble-free digital experience, it connects with a younger adult demographic, which in turn will increase the level of consumer engagement, help to broaden the player base, and drive up gaming halls’ footfall.

Not only does the OKTO solution satisfy the exacting digital demands of today’s consumers, but it also satisfies the requirements set out by regulators in terms of safer gambling.


OKTO.WALLET allows users to load credits directly from their mobile phones through the OKTO app to gaming machines, online or any other touchpoint and collect winnings straight into their OKTO account in real-time and in a secure and safe way. OKTO supports an easy, and fast mobile onboarding (KYC) while users can fund their account with multiple sources for free, like instant bank transfer, card-in and wire transfer. In addition, users can send and receive money from their friends for free while the OKTO app makes users’ life sweeter through rewards schemes.

Alongside, OKTO.WALLET is an open loop, giving players the freedom to move and use their funds as they wish instantly, while also as a universal wallet that has applications beyond gaming, consumers can make transactions anywhere.

Designed to protect the user and the operator and fully aligned with the modern requirements of gaming regulators, the wallet is fully equipped with a responsible gambling toolkit, incorporating all the major levels of safer gaming: age verification, gaming/betting limits, betting time-out period, P&L calculator, problem gambling helplines, aligned with social responsibility.

„Dupa ce oamenii creeaza un cont PayByFace si au adaugat cardul, selfi-ul si PIN-ul, si au avut un pic de curaj sa se duca sa incerce, daca au incercat o data plata prin recunoastere faciala nu mai folosesc altceva (n.r. ca modalitate de plata). 80% dintre ei numai asta folosesc. Le place la nebunie.”
