US based betting firm Caesars Interactive has announced that it has signed a deal with Optimal Payments, and will be offering punters in New Jersey and Nevada the option of using Neteller with their online betting sites.

The service will allow punters a secure and fast way to move money into and out of the websites WSOP.com in Nevada and New Jersey, as well as CaesarsCasino.com and HarrahsCasino.com in the Garden State.

Commenting on the deal Caesars Interactive Entertainment Chief Technology Officer Macro Ceccarelli said: “Providing safe, secure and convenient payments to our customers is our top focus and Neteller allows us to do that,. We are thrilled to offer Neteller in both New Jersey and Nevada effective immediately and anticipate this offering will be a popular choice for existing and new customers.”

Neill Erlick, the Executive Vice President of Business Development at Optimal Payments added: “Optimal Payments and Caesars Interactive Entertainment have a longstanding partnership that strategically binds our two companies. We already provide CIE with gateway services related to payment processing and now, with the addition of our new Neteller and Net+ Card stored value offering, we hope to make it even simpler for their consumers in regulated gaming markets to do business with this leader in gaming. We plan to support the company as it rolls out its social gaming offerings in the years ahead.”
