he addition means that Betsafe players can now enjoy the convenience of having one single account for all of their gaming needs. Prior to the integration, its poker site was not connected to its sportsbook product. This combination means a seamless and enhanced Internet experience for Betsafe customers and improved opportunities for cross-selling from the sportsbook to the poker product.
"Today’s announcement demonstrates CryptoLogic’s commitment to enhancing the player experience with flexible, customer and player-centric solutions," said Brian Hadfield, CryptoLogic’s President and CEO. "Our focus is to strengthen relationships by working closely with our licensees to find out what their players want - and then delivering superior products that meet their unique needs."
It is expected that the integration into Betsafe’s eWallet will lead to a significant increase in the player conversion of sportsbook customers to CryptoLogic’s online poker product. As part of today’s agreement, Betsafe will also increase its marketing initiatives for its online poker segment, which should lead to an even larger increase in player conversion.
Betsafe’s players have access to one of the world’s largest shared poker networks that excludes the US market, enabling them to find a game at the level and stake they want, in the currency they want, when they want.
Players can also take advantage of some of the Internet’s most popular online poker games, including Hold’Em Blackjack- an exclusive game which combines the intensity of poker with the simplicity of blackjack - and the Headhunter Challenge, an innovative multi-table poker concept in which players can earn cash for every ’head’ they eliminate. "The launch of our single wallet is much awaited and we believe that this integration will have a strong positive effect on all our products, said Henrik Persson, Betsafe’s CEO.
