According to the American Gaming Association (AGA) interactive sports betting map, 26 states plus Washington, D.C., are live with legal sportsbooks. As states continue to pass measures to legalize sports betting, it is imperative the industry moves in a positive direction.
Global Payments Gaming Solutions understands the importance of educating new and seasoned patrons on how to bet responsibly. As part of our responsible gaming initiatives, Global Payments has become a platinum member with the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG).
Founded in 1972, the NCPG advocates for programs and services to assist patrons and families affected by problem gambling. There isn’t a Federal agency tasked to address problem gambling, so The Council strives to raise awareness about prevention, treatment and recovery services that are available to patrons. As a platinum member, Global Payments will support essential services for patrons and families affected by problem gambling.
“The expansion of legal sports betting has led to conversations around the practice of responsible gambling,” said Christopher Justice, president, Global Payments Gaming Solutions. “Global Payments is proud to stand with the National Council on Problem Gambling to shed light on the impacts of problem gambling, and prevention, treatment and recovery resources that are available to patrons.”
Furthermore, Global Payments has engineered its solutions to provide additional layers of consumer protection while fitting within existing gaming regulations. VIP Mobility and VIP Financial Centerprovide patrons with an enhanced gaming experience while also delivering more effective consumer protection for responsible gaming. The solutions incorporate the latest responsible gaming measures, including configurable spending limits, “pre-set cooling” off periods, self-exclusion, and more.
