OKTO to set out a vision for the future of payments at EAG 2022

16 February 2022

OKTO, which is leading the digital payments revolution in the UK, will be making its debut appearance at EAG on stand 295.

Rob Peché, OKTO’s Country Manager with responsibility for the UK said that having its own presence at the leading exhibition dedicated to the UK industry is part of the brand’s commitment to the UK market, where it has already cemented partnerships with leading names including Regal Technologies, Inspired, Bob Rudd and Merkur UK.

He stated: “At EAG we will be demonstrating all the energy, the drive, the passion, and the vision that’s synonymous with the OKTO brand in order to achieve our key objective which is to be the architects of digitalisation in what is arguably Europe’s most important entertainment, leisure and gaming market. For the last 15-months the company has been involved in an intensive programme of meetings, product demonstrations and productive senior level discussions with a wide range of UK game creators, operators, and retailers across all the gaming sectors and the response has been phenomenal. Our team led by CCO Simon Dorsen has been able to demonstrate how the award-winning OKTO solution enables consumers to deposit and withdraw funds on gaming machines in a safe, seamless and secure way using a licensed, omni-channel, open-loop mobile payment app. 

“What’s clear is that operators are taking a progressive and integrated approach to the retailing of entertainment: digitalisation and digital payments are a fundamental part of this, and the OKTO cashless app is fully aligned with this strategy as well as the industry’s commitment to safer gaming. The app provides both venues and players with a safer gambling toolbox including a profit and loss calculator, age verification, time-out periods, the ability to set gaming limits as well as access to helplines for the small proportion of UK players that experience problems associated with their gambling. The OKTO digital wallet delivers the optimum digitalised customer journey which is why it is widely accepted by operators and users alike.

“A stand-out benefit for operators is that OKTO is a wallet and not simply a payments facilitator. This means there are a multitude of features including its omni-channel status, the fact that it is licensed and that it works across the entire gaming ecosystem including online. Beyond the gaming ecosystem, it has the ability to be integrated into ordering apps. It also provides an OKTO Mastercard linked with the OKTO app, enabling use anywhere on the high-street and online, where Mastercard is accepted. Significantly, OKTO is fully aligned with all gaming regulators modern requirements in terms of providing responsible gaming undertakings. I am looking forward to welcoming members of the industry to our stand 295 at EAG, to introduce members of the OKTO team and to share our vision for the future of payments.”
