Probability Partners with Boku for Carrier Billing

Mobile gambling firm Probability has partnered with Boku to introduce carrier billing to its games on iOS and Android.

Through integration of Bokus payment platform, Probability will enable players to deposit money – up to a daily limit of £30 – into their gaming account in under five seconds, with the money charged directly to their mobile operator bill.

“Our players expect frictionless payments thanks to the heavy use of in-app purchases on their smartphones,” said Probability CEO and co-founder Charles Cohen. “Our pitch to both players and partners has always been about accessible, fun gaming with the chance to win real money. 

“In the past we have offered premium rate text messaging as the simplest way to deposit but this can be cost prohibitive due to out-payments, plus there can be issues with latency in reporting and subsequent reconciliation. Direct carrier billing has totally changed the landscape, it’s a much more grown-up solution.”
