“ICE Totally Gaming is the perfect platform for us to spend time with the merchants and partners who benefit from integrating Skrill's wide range of payment solutions, such as 1-Tap, into their infrastructures.  1-Tap has been designed to streamline the deposit process into one step. By linking to the user’s digital wallet account, 1-Tap makes it significantly easier for players to add funds without having to re-enter their personal details, thereby increasing conversion rates for merchants and providing a smooth user experience for gamers.”
