Skrill (Moneybookers) sponsors European Poker Tour

The payment provider Skrill, formerly called Moneybokers, and offered as a payment solution from RakeTheRake, has become the Official Payment Provider Sponsor of the European Poker Tour Season 8, which began last week in Tallinn, Estonia.

Skril is the third brand to sponsor GPTL’s poker tours in 2011, joining playing cards manufacturer Copag and luxury jeweller Shamballa Jewels.

Nikolai Riesenkampff, co-CEO of Skrill Holdings, operating Moneybookers, said: “Skrill is delighted to join the European Poker Tour as its Official Payment Provider Sponsor. Now in its eighth season, the EPT has grown to become one of the largest and most lucrative poker tours in the world. Our headline sponsorship promises to deal a winning hand when it comes to strengthening our position as the leading digital wallet and bankroll management option among the world’s poker players.”

Skrill’s sponsorship deal offers the payment provider with some key brand building and promotional opportunities at EPT events across Europe, where it can meet customers in a 1-1 environment and incentivise them to open accounts.
