Online bookmaker PointsBet made its U.S. debut by opening its New Jersey online sportsbook that relies on Pavilion Payments to allow players to fund bets and claim winnings via electronic checking.
Online gaming is expanding rapidly due to last year’s U.S. Supreme Court decision overturning federal restrictions on state-level gambling. Pavilion Payments provides quick speed-to-market with a full range of payment solutions for physical and virtual gambling venues.
Variable betting options on games
Launched in Australia, PointsBet offers New Jersey players online gaming via its mobile app and web portal. In addition to traditional wagering, the company’s unique PointsBetting product provides players with a high-octane way to bet on sports, where potential winnings or losses are variable right up until the end of a game. Players can bet on different aspects of games, such as the time of the first touchdown in a football game, the time of the first penalty in a hockey game, or the number of three-pointers a basketball star makes during a basketball game.
“Pavilion Payments is a vital element in our effort to provide New Jersey players with the easiest to use, most exciting experience in online and mobile gaming,” said PointsBet Group CFO Nick Fahey. “The agreement with Pavilion Payments eases our entry into the U.S. market and ensures we can provide a frictionless payment experience for consumers.”
With ACH guarantee services Pavilion Payments provides, players can fund their bets and get real-time access to their winnings electronically using their regular checking accounts. Pavilion Payments services protect businesses from fraud, improve cash flow, and enable gaming organizations to offer electronic wallet capabilities to enhance the sports betting experience.
Simple, secure, convenient player experience
“The ability to easily fund online accounts and claim winnings electronically is an essential part of online and mobile sportsbook operations, and we are pleased to be selected by PointsBet for their U.S. operation,” said Christopher Justice, President of Pavilion Payments. “Our experience in providing a simple, secure, and convenient player experience has made us the logical partner for a majority of the interactive gaming properties in the industry.”
