What is being said?

Questioning whether payments are instant, Dunne noted: “I think when you look at pay-ins, I think they are when you look at most of Europe now pay-ins are instant. 

“There is obviously a lot that operators do on their side around having safer gambling rules that make some of them not so instant, but from a general perspective, pay-ins are instant. When we look at payouts, that’s not really the case and I do believe you should be able to pay in instantly, you should be able to get your funds out instantly as well. You as a customer should have full control over what is yours and that is not the case in Europe at the moment.

“We look at Visa Direct, that is a solution, but it’s only there for a small portion of customers and depends on which card type they have. We look at the different e-wallets and there are different withdrawals as well, but it’s not really back to your bank account so if you don’t want to use those funds elsewhere you have to then go through the process of getting them back to your bank account.”
