Realex wins big in deal with online casino 32Red

9 Mar 2010

Realex has secured a major online payments deal with a leading online gaming operator, 32Red, the AIM-listed company behind more than 350 casino games that is licensed in Gibraltar.

Realex will power 32Red’s card-processing requirements. The company needed to source a new payments partner who could meet the same level of service that they commit to providing their customers.

Commenting on the deal, Pat Harrison, 32Red’s operations director said: ‘‘Realex Payments came to us with something different. The level of support and proactive service they provide is what sets them apart.”

The deal involves Realex Payments providing payment processing for 32Red across a variety of products, currencies, regions and card types.

The deal comes less than a month after Realex Payments announced signing a deal with Cryptologic.

“As we grow our gaming portfolio it is important that we secure partnerships with respected operators, such as 32Red,” Realex Payments CEO and founder Colm Lyon explained.

“To be selected by 32Red ahead of others demonstrates our leadership and ability to deliver service led bespoke payment solutions,” Lyon said.
