Sportsbet opted to deploy TNSPay, which is a managed multi-channel payment gateway that allows merchants to reliably authorise and settle card transactions. TNSPay offers Sportsbet a cost-effective payment gateway that is scalable, easily adaptable, secure and robust.

TNSPay provides greater availability than a traditional payment gateway could offer, providing market-leading reliability.
