Skill-Based Competition Merchants

Axcess has been in the competitions space since the concept first arrived on the scene, processing payments for the first-ever house raffle in the UK. Things have come on since then, with house competitions becoming less prominent and skill-based competitions with cars, electronics, luxury items, and events becoming ever more common.

As one of the very few payment companies facilitating the processing of payments for skill-based competitions, Axcess has a wealth of experience and understanding of the sector, while also ensuring you are compliant with the current rules from the UK Gambling Commission.
