And finally, a short interview of the winner himself, Sami B from the Nordics:

Congratulations on your win! How do you feel?
I can’t really explain how i really feel, it’s hard. To be honest when i saw that I won 88.000 Euros from a 10 Euros bet, I just looked at my screen for 5 to 7 minutes. It took some time to realize and after a week or two it feels more than amazing.

Have you ever won this much with such a small bet in the past?
I haven’t won this much before. Maybe 2000 Euros or 5000 Euros, so 88.000 Euros is on another level.

Do you prefer to play Hacksaw Games or it happened by accident?
It was almost by accident. By that I mean that I was hovering my mouse over the game and then was looking at a casino stream and the guy won like 6.000 Euros on 30 Euros bet so I wanted to give it a try. And guess what, it worked out more than I could ever imagine!

What are you going to do with these 88.000 Euros? Have you decided?
I took 2 weeks off from work in January so I will travel. Then I might play some more and get hair transplantation! Of course, Of course, I will save money as well.

Give us a few words for King Billy.
Honestly, amazing support that answers all questions that I have. Support is more important than anything. For all who are reading this, I hope you all have an amazing time trying out your luck because sometime it just happens and when you get a hit with that luck you need great support. Thanks King Billy for being so amazing!

PayPal Introduces New Software to Help Block Gambling Transactions

PayPal Introduces New Software to Help Block Gambling Transactions
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

PayPal, one of the largest and most popular online payments services, has recently adopted new software to help give customers better control over their gambling habits. The software, developed by Gamban, allows users to set up a block to prevent their accounts from being used for gambling transactions. This move comes not long after the UK banned gambling sites from accepting credit card payments.

PayPal is widely used around the world, processing over 3 billion transactions a year, with a value of $311 billion US dollars. While the majority of these are for online shopping and other online purchases, the service is also used on gambling platforms. PayPal has become a popular way of making deposits and withdrawals at online gambling sites, as it’s fast, safe and easy to use. Users can create an account, add funds from their bank or card and then make simple online payments.

Because of how popular it is all over the world, most online gambling services accept payments made using PayPal. It’s used international, so a wide range of the best online casinos and sports betting sites offer support for PayPal payments. Most iGaming platforms advertise this fact to their users, letting them know they can sign up and easily make a deposit to start playing.

Why Does PayPal Allow Users to Block Gambling Transactions?

Although gambling is fun for most people, it can become a habit and even an addiction. There has been a strong push lately for iGaming sites to encourage responsible gaming, as well as offering support for those with a problem. Most iGaming licence providers will only offer licences to sites that protect players and encourage them to gamble responsibly.

One of the most effective ways of encouraging responsible gambling is giving users the ability to block transactions. Most sites will offer deposit limits that allow players to set how much they’re allowed to deposit each week or month. In addition, the UK recently banned all gambling sites from accepting payments from credit cards.

In 2019, PayPal reviewed its services and found that a significant percentage of transactions were used for online gambling. While this wouldn’t normally be an issue, the review also found that a lot of these transactions were linked to problem gambling. As such, it partnered with Gamban, a software provider, to introduce an automatic blocking system.

PayPal users can now go into their settings and set the service to automatically block all payments made to an iGaming site. This allows anyone with a gambling problem to easily refrain from adding funds to a gambling site if they’re trying to recover. In a statement, Gamban announced that the move was a welcome one that, along with self-exclusion and support, would give players a better chance of recovery.

What Does This Mean for the Future of iGaming Payments?

With gambling authorities such as the UK Gambling Commission now paying close attention to responsible gambling, iGaming sites need to be more mindful of what payments they offer and how they treat players. Additionally, payment services themselves need to consider the impact of allowing unrestricted gambling payments.

As software solutions improve, payment providers have more options that allow them to give players control over their spending habits. This software can automatically detect if a payment is made at any kind of gambling site, including those that are gambling-related. Users can set it to block transactions at gambling tip sites or other sites involved in iGaming.

Other payment services may also follow suit over the coming months and years, with most payment providers also wary about being associated with problem gambling. The more payment services that get on board, the better, as problem gamblers will be able to control their habits more easily and avoid falling into debt.
