The Wazzamba virtual world combines exploration with skill-based casual games to provide a rich and rewarding experience while offering players the chance to win real world travel prizes. Wazzamba lets casual gamers explore more than 30 destinations visiting some of the world's greatest cities and landmarks and at the same time being able to earn points to win actual travel prizes from DreamTrips and GetAway Trips(TM) every week.

Rocco Pellegrinelli, CEO of Wazzamba, said: "We chose GlobalCollect because they provide a best-of-breed solution that covers all of our international payment needs. As a company that awards valuable prizes to its members, it is critical that we have a partner that Wazzamba, and our customers, can trust."
