A Look at Sports Betting Across the U.S.

Online sports betting is gaining traction across the U.S., especially after the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the American Gaming Association's (AGA) interactive sports betting map, 19 states plus Washington, D.C., live with legal sportsbooks. AGA's map also identifies which states have legalized sports betting but have yet to be operational, as well as those with active legislation and those without.

As casinos struggle to remain operational and ensure their guests and staff's health and safety, online sports betting offers an efficient alternative to the traditional brick-and-mortar gaming experience. More than ever, patrons deserve safer and more innovative gaming options. With the infrastructure already in place, the industry is positioned to deliver the contactless, cashless digital experience consumers desire and expect.


With more than 20 years of gaming industry experience, Pavilion Payments is actively creating solutions to promote a safer digital sports betting market that is conveniently accessible via online and mobile channels. Pavilion Payments' iGaming solutions leverage the latest technology to provide enhanced digital options for sports betting, ultimately bridging the gap between physical and digital gaming while elevating the gaming experience for bettors.


Pavilion Payments has recently partnered with Penn Interactive to support the new Barstool Sportsbook mobile app. Officially launched in Pennsylvania in September, Pavilion Payments enables Penn Interactive to deliver a fun and engaging wallet experience to the sportsbook app's users straight from their smart devices.


Additionally, PointsBet implemented Pavilion Payments' suite of iGaming solutions to further the online bookmakers' efforts in allowing players to fund bets and claim winnings via Pavilion Payments' warranty ACH service. With Pavilion Payments, Pointsbet's users can electronically fund their bets and withdraw winnings using their regular checking accounts.


Amelco is the latest provider to tap Pavilion Payments' iGaming solutions to deliver users an enhanced online sports betting experience.
