Novibet Extends its Global Partnership with Nuvei for Card Processing and Alternative Payments


Nuvei is now Enabling Novibet to Accept Apple Pay and Expand Internationally Through a Single Integration


MONTREAL and MALTA, April 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nuvei Corporation (“Nuvei” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: NVEI) (TSX: NVEI), tomorrow’s payment platform, announces today that it is extending its partnership with Novibet, a leading European sports betting and online casino operator, to accept payments as it expands globally.


Building on a successful partnership delivering card processing solutions in countries such as Greece, Italy, and Ireland, Novibet is now also offering its players the option to deposit seamlessly and securely using Apple Pay for the first time via its single point of integration with Nuvei. Players will be able to request payouts to Apple Pay as well. Apple Pay’s convenient checkout user experience makes it an attractive deposit option, in particular for returning players that want to upload funds through the quickest possible method.


Novibet is rapidly expanding its customer base across Europe, with accelerated growth in countries across the continent. The operator is also expected to launch in more markets internationally including the U.S., Mexico, and Canada, starting later this year.


Nuvei’s strong heritage supporting gaming companies to expand geographically through its intimate knowledge of local customers and regulations, and a fully customizable cashier to adapt to each market, means it is the payments partner of choice for leading operators when considering how to grow internationally.


Philip Fayer, CEO & Chair of Nuvei commented: “Providing players with the most relevant payments experiences and the ability to grow internationally is at the heart of what Nuvei brings to gaming. Enabling Novibet to add Apple Pay to our card processing solution is a great example of this. Seamless deposits and payouts have been growing in significance for the industry for some time and this trend will only continue.


“We’re looking forward to working closely with Novibet and are very excited about growing together globally this year.”


Konstantinos Andris, COO of Novibet added: “Novibet is one of the most innovative GameTech brands, operating in Europe and soon to launch in America. Adding Apple Pay to our payment options is another example of this. Enabling players to use all the relevant payment methods is critical to maintaining our industry-leading player experience.





“And it is easy to see why Apple Pay is growing in popularity as a payment method. The ease and security of the checkout process is valuable to our players, which is why we are excited that our partnership with Nuvei means that we can offer this in an equally convenient and safe manner.”


With this announcement Nuvei continues to demonstrate why it is the global leader for online payments. Nuvei enables businesses to accept over 550 local and alternative payment methods including Instant Bank Transfer, digital wallets and real-time bank transfers via a fully customizable checkout to suit local consumers across the globe, and has deep regulatory knowledge to support operators as they enter new markets.
