Pavilion Payments announces close of transaction

April 3, 2023

The payment provider has closed its transaction with Global Payments but will continue to offer kiosk, cashless and iGaming technology.

Pavilion Payments, omni-channel gaming industry payment provider, has closed a formerly announced transaction with Global Payments together with Parthenon Capital, a mid-market private equity firm.

Pavilion, previously known as Global Payments Gaming Solutions, has a new Las Vegas headquarters. The name “Pavilion Payments,” was chosen due to the company’s mission to “provide operators and patrons with a single, integrated gaming solution under one roof.”

Pavilion CEO, Christopher Justice, said, “The growth we are seeing in the gaming industry is exhilarating. We are well-positioned to take advantage of the changes rapidly occurring in our industry.

“As an independent company, we will continue to advance our innovative product development roadmap and provide outstanding service to our clients.”

Pavilion offers kiosk, cashless and iGaming technology for operators to use across both physical, and digital casino properties. The company’s e-check network, VIP Preferred, connects users to over 400 in-person and online gaming institutions, where users can transfer funds from one to another.

Pavilion patrons can also use its other payment solutions such as, VIP Financial Centers, Cash Advance, Delayed Settlement and VIP Mobility. VIP Mobility is a mobile solution that makes cashless gaming possible from funding through cash-out.

Global Payments will continue to carry out the company’s payment solutions through a long-term partnership with Pavilion.

Justice continued, “We are proud of several recent product introductions including our online bank credentialing solution, which will make enrollment quicker and simpler for patrons, and continue to remove friction from the gaming experience.”

Justice previously spoke about his Viewpoints on the growing digitization of the casino floor in the July/August edition of Gaming America.

And he also joined the GA Huddle recently to discuss the new branding.
