This move aims to help the provider maintain the highest regulatory standards.

Digital payment solutions provider, Okto, has announced its ally membership with the American Gaming Association (AGA). 

By joining the AGA, Okto will aim to solidify its dedication to the highest regulatory standards, continual support for responsible gambling practices and towards the advancement of digital transformation in the industry. 

The AGA has members across the gaming industry such as commercial and tribal casino operators, sports betting and iGaming companies, game suppliers and others, with the association having the goal of promoting, educating and lobbying on behalf of the gambling industry. 

Through its membership with the AGA, Okto will look to provide more advanced cashless payment services to regional merchants and to engage with local authorities to maintain a secure and responsible gambling environment. 

As well as this, Okto will take part in AGA member events so that it can share its views on the digital payments environment to give its perspective on the matter, while also being able to foster industry relationships. 

This follows on from a big deal for Okto to start the year, when it collaborated with Betsson Group to introduce a new payment solution in Greece. 

Okto's VP North America, Theo Engelis, said: "Joining the AGA allows us to contribute to the advancement of the American gaming landscape. Okto is committed to upholding stringent regulatory standards and collaborating closely with local authorities to deliver innovative, secure, and efficient cashless payment solutions in the American gaming industry."   

Last week, the AGA partnered with RG24seven Virtual Training to launch a free employee training program to educate gaming industry employees on how to combat human trafficking.
