Sightline Payments, a US-based provider of digital payment solutions in sports betting and iGaming, has today announced the launch of its Play+ Mastercard product. Through this partnership with Mastercard, users will be able to load cash onto the card to pay for their sports betting and casino activities.
“The foundation of Play+ is to provide customers with a safe, secure and responsible payments experience to fund their gaming and entertainment,” said Joe Pappano, co-CEO of Sightline Payments.
“Our collaboration with Mastercard will further cement that goal and we look forward to working together to enhance payment options within the gaming industry and further the digital transformation of the consumer experience.”
Furthermore, players will be able to sync the Play+ card with their smartphones via digital wallets or the Sightline-designed Resorts World Las Vegas mobile app. Indeed, the Play+ platform will work across Resort World’s full offering including slots, table games, sports betting, restaurants, retail, and entertainment.
“As consumers increasingly seek digital-first experiences, we’re pleased to partner with Sightline to enable a fully digital engagement for the patrons at Resorts World Las Vegas leveraging our tokenization capabilities and innovative card solutions,” said Chiro Aikat, executive vice president of products & innovation for Mastercard in North America.
Unlike a standard debit card, Mastercard’s tokenization technology will replace a card number with a unique token that is only usable by the merchant that requested it.
Recently, Sightline announced the signing of a partnership with International Game Technology. Per the agreement, Play+ has been added as a funding option to IGT’s payment platform IGTPay.
“Our technology enhances the gaming experience for both players and operators and working in tandem with IGT’s complementary suite of products will help us transform even more traditional casino floors into fully cashless ecosystems,” added Pappano.
“This partnership will provide players with the greatest variety of funding and withdrawal options while driving increased engagement and loyalty through a seamless digital payments ecosystem.”
