Payment processing


Payment processing

Enhance player care and engagement with a range of payment options

We handle a diverse range of payment types across our extensive client base. It's not just about facilitating the collection of money - it's about maximising your returns, minimising your own workload and engaging with your supporter base all in a fully-secure, wholly-compliant, highly-efficient way.

We facilitate a range of different payment methods and we can help you choose which are most appealing to your audience and appropriate for your objectives.

Lottery Direct Debit services

We can facilitate Direct Debit payments in a whole range of ways, whether you are already offering this payment option or you want to add it to your mix. It’s all about smooth, timely operation, ensuring your success.

Card payments

When it comes to cards there are many different ways to facilitate this type of payment. We'll identify the best solution for you and work with you to get you up and running.

Standing Order

Not many new launches offer Standing Order but for older lotteries with legacy players it can be very important; we manage Standing Orders for many of our longstanding clients and, if you currently take Standing Order payments, we’d be happy to manage them for you.


A great way to engage with your corporate supporters is to offer Payroll as a payment option; widely offered through our Workplace lotteries, we manage Payroll payments for tens of thousands of lottery members.


A popular choice with certain audiences, cheques can be offered across your gaming portfolio; we process, bank and thank securely on your behalf.

Gift Vouchers

You might choose to offer your supporters the opportunity to buy Gift Vouchers, to give to family and friends.

SMS (Text Message)

Utilising a Lottery or Raffle Shortcode, we can accept payments by text message, in a similar way to text donations; we’ve got a solution for one-off text payments (suitable for Raffle and Prizedraw) and for regular payments (perfect for lottery players).

Building payments into your gaming strategy

Your payments strategy can define your gaming offering. There are many factors to consider, and we’ll help you arrive at the payment strategy that works for you:

  • Different audiences engage more readily with certain payment methods
  • Consider the balance of converting one-off payments into regular subscriptions
  • Your entry channels may also dictate what payment methods you offer

Converting existing lottery players

If you have an existing lottery and want to switch to us, we’ll work with you to seamlessly transfer any payments you currently offer onto one of our lottery platforms, for us to manage on your behalf.
