Prior to the pandemic, digital alternatives to brick-and-mortar experiences were not a necessity, but more so another channel to meet the preference of the consumer. However, the global health crisis has fueled the need for contactless, mobile-driven options to cater to consumers’ preferences and effectively engage with them.
The return of live sports after months of social distancing and cancelled events has brought some normalcy back to consumers’ daily lives. As the big sporting events begin to pick back up, the industry should prepare for an increase in sports betting as well.
According to research from a recent American Gaming Association (AGA) survey, 74% of respondents believe that it is important to only use legal sportsbooks to safely participate in sports betting. With the infrastructure already in place to promote safer and more innovative gaming options, this presents an opportunity to the industry to deliver the contactless, cashless digital experience consumers crave.
With more than 20 years of gaming industry experience, Global Payments Gaming Solutions is leading the charge to create a safe, digital sports betting market that is conveniently accessible via online and mobile channel. By leveraging the latest technology to provide digital options for sports betting, Global Payments is bridging the gap between physical and digital gaming while elevating the gaming experience for bettors.
Global Payments’ iGaming solutions extend the gaming experience to online and mobile devices, enabling a multi-channel approach to sports betting, along with iLottery, daily fantasy football, online casino and horse racing capabilities. Using Global Payments’ VIP Preferred® e-check network, bettors can quickly and easily access funds from their checking account without having to re-enroll, with the same limits and terms available to them inside the casino.
The iGaming solutions are powered by VIP Mobility, the industry’s first mobile solution enabling true cashless casino gaming from funding through cash-out. Gamers can responsibly enjoy the freedom of digital ticketing, reload funds from their phone and retrieve winnings at their convenience.
