Player Voices Are Heard

Building on its poker offerings that included three recent successful tournament series' - the Eagle Cup, Grizzly Games and Rattlesnake Open - Global Poker listened to player feedback and concluded that an increase in payment options would be extremely beneficial to its growing player base.

“One thing our customers have made clear to us is that they would like more choice when it comes to payment methods,” said Laurence Escalante, CEO and founder of Global Poker's parent company, VGW. “Worldpay’s extensive network and vast expertise allow us to give our players this choice.”

The new array of payment solutions will include credit cards, e-wallets and mobile options. Escalante added that Global Poker customers will be able to facilitate payments "in whatever way is most convenient to them.”

An exact date for the rollout of Worldpay options has yet to be announced. However, players can expect the new payment choices to be available shortly.
