OKTO launches another major retail payment innovation at ICE London


OKTO uses ICE London (7th-9th February, ExCeL London) as the platform to unveil OKTO.DIRECT- the industry’s first and only gateway, which unlocks multiple payment options for retail, without the need for the player to download an app.


The product development team at OKTO has designed the mobile first solution in order to meet the specific demands of the retail gaming industry. OKTO.DIRECT can be integrated directly into any gaming or retail touchpoint across all verticals, delivering the ultimate, responsible, frictionless payment journey.

Expanding on the revolutionary, technology-driven solution Simon Dorsen, CCO at OKTO, said: “Our customers’ requirement for low friction digital payment solutions is on the top of our list and OKTO.DIRECT is the answer to this demand, with no need to download an app. Using our well established OKTO Unified Payment Platform and CMS integrations network, end-users are able to use OKTO.DIRECT to top-up and withdraw directly at gaming machines via Apple Pay, Debit Card, Instant Bank Transfer or their OKTO wallet, just using their mobile to scan a QR code. This is, all about delivering an unprecedented breadth of choice, enabling consumers to pay and play using a range of digital payment options that are available with a single integration.”

The solution can be integrated with all touchpoints, including EGMs, SSBTs, electronic roulette, cashier desks, and cash recyclers, as well as across all verticals, including casinos, sports betting, pubs and bars, AGCs, gaming halls, bingo halls and online.

OKTO, the global omnichannel payment provider, will be launching OKTO.DIRECT from stand S8-210 at ICE London 2023.
