Wednesday April 16,2014 : CAESARS INTERACTIVE TO OFFER NETELLER SERVICE (Update)
 
Existing partnership expanded with new payment product
 
Optimal Payments Plc has extended its existing online gaming partnership with Caesars Interactive Entertainment (CIE) with the addition of payment services option NETELLER.
 
Optimal Payments NETELLER service was re-launched to the broader U.S. market early last month.  The re-launched NETELLER service and Net+ Card was re-branded with a new look and feel and offers updated features, capabilities and security.
 
CIE will now offer the NETELLER service to customers of CaesarsCasino.com, HarrahsCasino.com and WSOP.com in both Nevada and New Jersey.
 
“Providing safe, secure and convenient payments to our customers is our top focus and NETELLER allows us to do that,” commented Marco Ceccarelli, senior vice president and chief technology officer, CIE.  “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.”
 
“Optimal Payments and Caesars Interactive Entertainment have a longstanding partnership that strategically binds our two companies,” added Neil Erlick, executive vice-president, business development, Optimal Payments. “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.”
