EnergyBet is the inaugural iGaming partner for DIMOCO

DIMOCO is bringing ‘the telecom world into iGaming’ after agreeing a partnership deal which enables customers on EnergyBet to utilise carrier billing.

The partnership enables EnergyBet customers to place bets from their smart phones, tablets, laptops, PCs and connected TVs, all securely identified via their carrier networks, with deposits charged via the operators’ billing system.

DIMOCO has offered its ‘value adding’ payment service across Europe since 2000, and the company’s iGaming Program Director Rafal Nowak believes they are now in a perfect position to negotiate entry terms for the iGaming industry.

Nowak told TotallyGaming.com: “We are bringing the telecom world into iGaming. We are also educating the network operators about the tight margins and different revenue share for iGaming, which is new to the mobile carrier sector, and working with them to monetise the mobile customer.”

Nowak also confirmed that DIMOCO will help operators such as EnergyBet maintain responsible gambling by setting limits for single transactions and monthly deposit totals. Statistics show that over 70% of online gaming customers pay between £5 and £30 per transaction. It is also a good fit for the inactive or ‘unbanked’ audience who can be activated online with a level of security.

Totally Gaming says: DIMOCO is targeting locally regulated European markets for initial tests, with EnergyBet as its inaugural partner in the first of these markets, the UK. By leveraging DIMOCO’s direct billing connectivity to major telecoms networks such as Vodafone, 02, EE and Three, EnergyBet will gain billing reach to more than 70 million UK mobile numbers, and a partnership deal with a company experienced in monetising these mobile customers.
