A Look at Sports Betting Across the U.S.

by Global Payments Gaming Team / December 17, 2020

Online sports betting is gaining traction across the U.S., especially in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the American Gaming Association’s (AGA) interactive sports betting map, 19 states plus Washington, D.C. are live with legal sportsbooks. AGA’s map also identifies which states have legalized sports betting but are not yet operational, as well as those with active legislation and those without.

As casinos continue to walk the tightrope between remaining operational and ensuring the health and safety of both their guests and staff, online sports betting offers an efficient alternative to the traditional brick-and-mortar gaming experience. More than ever, patrons deserve safer and more innovative gaming options. With the infrastructure already in place to do so, the industry is positioned to deliver the contactless, cashless digital experience that consumers desire and expect.

With more than 20 years of gaming industry experience, Global Payments Gaming Solutions is actively creating solutions to promote a safer, digital sports betting market that is conveniently accessible via online and mobile channels. Global Payments’ iGaming solutions leverage the latest technology to provide enhanced digital options for sports betting, ultimately bridging the gap between physical and digital gaming while elevating the gaming experience for bettors.

Global Payments has recently partnered with Penn Interactive to support the new Barstool Sportsbook mobile app. Officially launched in Pennsylvania in September, Global Payments enables Penn Interactive to deliver a fun and engaging wallet experience to the sportsbook app’s users straight from their smart devices.

Additionally, PointsBet implemented Global Payments’ suite of iGaming solutions to further the online bookmakers’ efforts in allowing players to fund bets and claim winnings via Global Payments’ warranty ACH service. With Global Payments, Pointsbet’s users can electronically fund their bets and withdraw winnings using their regular checking accounts.

Amelco is the latest provider to tap Global Payments’ iGaming solutions to deliver an enhanced online sports betting experience to its users. Through this integration, Amelco can easily provide operators access to Global Payments’ warranty ACH service to provide players with easy funding options and an enhanced gaming experience.
