Shift4 Payments, provider of integrated payment processing technology, and Sightline Payments, supplier of cashless gaming and betting solutions, announced on Thursday a strategic partnership to power online gaming and sports betting for casinos and sports venues.
This formal partnership between two leading fintech companies will deliver a seamless payment experience for patrons of hospitality, online/mobile gaming, on-premise gaming, and sports betting venues.
Sightline’s online/mobile gaming and betting solutions complement Shift4’s end-to-end payments offering to deliver an all-inclusive payment ecosystem for casinos, sports venues, and other hospitality businesses. This unmatched offering provides a comprehensive guest experience across in-venue and online payments.
"The regulated gaming market, including sports betting and fantasy leagues, is enormous and continuing to gain in popularity. We are excited to partner with Sightline to take on this massive payments opportunity," said Jared Isaacman, Shift4 Payments CEO.
"As the world at large continues to shift away from cash and towards robust, forward-thinking digital payments solutions and loyalty programs, it is a pleasure to partner with a powerhouse like Shift4," said Sightline Payments CEO Joe Pappano. "We are already experiencing strong interest from opportunities we are cooperatively pursuing and look forward to continuing to expand our pipeline and delivering on the potential of this partnership."
