NFL Playoffs Call for Responsible Gaming Awareness

Sports betting remains one of the most popular forms of gambling in the gaming industry. Among all the sports and events in the sports betting realm, the NFL Playoffs continuously break records in participation, views, and revenue in the United States. According to Sportico, the National Football League racked up a stunning 171.3 billion TV ad impressions and was 19 of the 20 most-viewed broadcasts in 2022, far outperforming the next most-watched sport. The NFL is high in engagement and expects to see more growth. Ahead of the first kickoff of the NFL Playoffs, Pavilion Payments promotes safe, reliable, and responsible gaming.

As an industry leader, Pavilion Payments advocates for responsible gaming by promoting initiatives and integrating responsible gaming measures into all solutions. Pavilion Payments partners with and supports the American Gaming Association’s (AGA) Have A Game Plan.® Bet Responsibly.™ responsible gaming campaign. The Have A Game Plan initiative advocates for four core principles of responsible sports betting: set a budget and stick to it, keep betting social, know the odds, and play with trusted, regulated operators. By promoting this key message, sports fans can be educated on the importance of responsible sports betting.


Pavilion Payments creates and promotes the safest and most straightforward solutions to encourage responsible gaming. Pavilion Payments’ industry-standard e-check network, VIP Preferred®, makes sports betting simple by linking patrons’ checking accounts directly with their wagering ledger, enabling fast and safe access to funds.

Sports betting continues to grow in popularity because it is a fun and competitive way to watch the teams and players that fans support most. While betting can make watching sports more exciting, education is essential to ensure patrons are wagering responsibly.
