EPG Financial Services, a German-owned subsidiary of the Gauselmann Group and a financial payment service provider, has announced the launch of its innovative payment app paylado. paylado customers can make real-time cash top-ups and withdrawals using just their smartphones, from thousands of retail and casino locations. paylado is a simple, fast, safe, and reliable application compliant with financial regulations FIAU, EBA, GGL and MFSA.

Locations will now include large petrol stations, supermarket brands, as well as selected Gauselmann-operated entertainment venues. The technology of the paylado cash loading service is powered by European payments business Funanga, which was chosen for its ease of use, best-in-class security features, and comprehensive network of Point-of-Sale payment partners.

To load the paylado app, customers simply generate a barcode within the digital wallet app, have it scanned at the point of sale, and the funds will be instantly credited to their paylado wallet. The barcode is unique to each customer and to paylado, cannot be transferred, and has no financial value until it is scanned. The closed-loop system is designed for security and simplicity for operators and customers alike, facilitating the demands of those customers who like to have the option to fund their Paylado wallet and entertainment activities with cash.

 

 

“We work with the biggest iGaming brands in the world, and the EPG Financial Services partnership is a perfect demonstration of why,” said Jens Bader, Funanga CEO. “The paylado team was building an innovative payment solution for users and needed an out-of-the-box white label product, that is reliable, established, and designed predominantly for iGaming. We knew that the service would need to meet customer expectations from day one, with no teething problems. It also needed to be easy to use and incredibly secure.”

 

 

“We chose Funanga for its robust track record on customer security, regulatory compliance, and technical quality,” said Rupert Kainzbauer, CEO of paylado/EPG Financial Services. “Gauselmann has built an unrivalled reputation in the casino and entertainment sectors. We expect our customers’ iGaming experience to meet the same high standards. Having a large ready-made network of POS locations was therefore essential because it would enable players to pay from tens of thousands of convenient locations immediately. The additional advantage with the Funanga platform is the embedded automated closed loop nature of the product”.

In a significant leap forward for the gaming and entertainment sectors, Sortium, a leader in the wave of generative AI within gaming, has launched innovative AI tools for artists and game developers, marking a new era of creativity and efficiency. These tools, leveraging the Polkadot infrastructure, are set to transform the gaming industry by enhancing the creative process, streamlining production workflows, and producing high-quality user-generated content.

This transformative step is supported by a successful funding round Sortium just closed, surpassing $4 million. The round was led by industry stalwarts such as Signum Growth, with significant contributions from a diverse array of investors, including Cathie Wood’s ARK Investment Management LLC, IDG Blockchain, IVC Fund, Polygon, and 1881 S Group AG. This wide-ranging support underscores the industry’s confidence in Sortium’s potential to revolutionize 3D video game design and entertainment production.

Sortium’s AI tools integrate seamlessly into existing game production ecosystems, automating challenging content creation tasks. This innovation enables studios to significantly speed up production times and reduce costs, allowing them to focus more on innovation and design while empowering users across any system to design their own characters, thereby opening new creative freedoms and revenue streams for developers and individual creators alike.

Sortium’s believes that IP rights will ultimately matter – baking them into the technology at the outset, and respecting artists’ work, are core tenets of the company that we fully support.”

Building on this foundation of technical excellence and ethical commitment, Sortium’s innovations also translate into tangible benefits for the gaming community.

Sortium gives creatives unparalleled freedom in leading gaming environments like Unreal,” said Lex Avellino, Founder & CCO at Passage, one of Sortium’s partners. “The team is breaking technical barriers, and it adds a huge value for our consumer audiences who want to take advantage of the latest virtual tech but need to act with speed and simplicity.”

Sortium is actively forming partnerships with major intellectual properties and leading gaming platforms. A recent major collaboration with Bit Brawl, a game utilizing Sortium technology to deliver live content to over 5,000 users, showcases the versatile application of Sortium’s tools across various gaming environments. Its technology’s wide compatibility with leading development platforms ensures extensive adoption potential and effortless integration into professional industry practices. Sortium’s enterprise solutions, such as the LiveOps API, aim to enhance gaming experiences and enable continuous creativity through endless, tailored content generation.
