SAN JOSE, CA and SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA--(Marketwired - Oct 10, 2013) - 17wind, China's first privately-owned online lottery provider, has signed an exclusive contract with Danal to enable payments on its site using Danal's mobile payment solution. Danal, the parent company of BilltoMobile, is the pioneer and global leader in e-commerce mobile payments, having processed an unmatched $7 billion in transactions.
In 2012, the online lottery market in China was estimated at USD 4.8 billion (CNY 30 billion) and was comprised entirely of government-owned enterprises. Due to recent policy changes in China, privately-owned enterprises can now also offer lottery services. Local experts believe this change will result in explosive growth in the market, which is already on course to reach USD 13 billion (CNY 80 billion) in 2013. 17wind is the first private enterprise to be licensed for online lottery services in China; and Danal's mobile payment solution, DanalPay, is enabling all 16 lottery models available through 888.17wind.com.
"Danal's diverse mobile and alternative payment solution caters really well to the Chinese market and is therefore very well-received by all local companies," said Jin Gon Jo, Head of Danal China. "Bringing mobile payments to 17wind's online lottery service is an exciting new segment and we are looking forward to an accelerated growth in the coming months."
