PayPal Re-enters Online Gaming On The Downlow

    In the past few days, a few U.S. online gambling websites have started to accept PayPal—a first in more than a decade. Yet the payments company had been very quiet about it, initially releasing very limited information about the shift.

    The two screen shots below are from just this past week, showing that PayPal is brand new to the sites, including WSOP dot com and DerbyGames dot com. Caesars Interactive Entertainment (CIE) is the owner of WSOP dot com, while Derby Games is a start-up offering regulated online gambling in the U.S., primarily horse race betting.

    First news of the quiet—but potentially massive—shift was reported by iGaming Business. PayPal has been widely available on foreign gaming sites, but this is the first time it has been seen in the U.S. since the early 2000s,

Prior to that, however, PayPal had been processing online gaming—when it was an independent company. "At the time, it was the largest transactor for global online gambling," said one gaming insider who didn't want to be named due to PayPal's request for no PR.

    Good start for some US sights. Hopefully Microgaming will accept us back and we can use PP for this. Now that would be awesome!

    Now this is something cool! Good news for US Gaming business. PayPal payment gateway is today the most convenient method of making payments. Including it in online games would be greatly facilitating, both for the players and the gaming companies. So, probably a great move for the US gaming industry!

    This is Super good news to US Players. Paypal is being widely used at any transaction online so now that Paypal is now accepted we can feel more convenient paying and receiving online. Hope it will be more faster since Paypal is know for that.
