LAS VEGAS – Sept. 22, 2020 – Today, Global Payments Gaming Solutions announced PointsBet Illinois has implemented its suite of iGaming solutions to further the online bookmakers’ efforts to allow players to fund bets and claim winnings via electronic checking.
In addition to standard fixed-odds wagering, PointsBet also possesses the unique PointsBetting product, an innovative way to bet where potential winnings or losses are variable right up until the final whistle. PointsBetting unlocks new categories for bettors to wager on different aspects of games, such as the point difference between a win and loss for a particular team, a multiplier of numerous player statistical categories, or the time in seconds of the first three-pointer made during a basketball game.
A proven leader in the gaming space, Global Payments Gaming Solutions fosters quality gaming experiences that span both physical and digital properties. With Global Payments Gaming Solutions’ iGaming solutions, PointsBet Illinois can leverage ACH guaranteed services to enable players to fund their bets and get real time access to their winnings electronically using their regular checking accounts. Global Payments Gaming Solutions’ services protect businesses from fraud, improve cash flow, and make it possible for gaming organizations to offer electronic wallet capabilities to improve the sports betting experience.
The suite of iGaming solutions leverages Global Payments Gaming Solutions’ VIP LightSpeed® platform to power funding and withdrawals for online sports betting; and the VIP Preferred® e-check network to enable guests to quickly access funds from their checking account in a seamless, frictionless manner.
“As guests increasingly opt into digital and online channels for everyday activities, the demand for iGaming is growing as well,” said Christopher Justice, president, Global Payments Gaming Solutions. “By leveraging our technology, PointsBet Illinois is providing an innovative gaming experience to meet guests in their homes or wherever they choose to game and offer more convenience and flexibility in the way they game.”
