Responsible Gaming and Education Month Calls for Safe Sports Betting

With the American Gaming Association’s (AGA) Responsible Gaming Education Month (RGEM) in full swing this month, Pavilion Payments proudly promotes safe gaming, including for the growing sports betting sector. The AGA and Pavilion Payments are committed to educating consumers on the basics of responsible betting and problem gambling awareness.


RGEM coincides with the start of both college and professional football, which are both incredibly popular for sports betting because of their engaging and entertaining nature. The NFL in particular has proven to be essential in attracting and retaining patrons. Other sporting events like the MLB playoffs and the NBA season are soon to come and represent more opportunities for sports betting. However, it is incumbent on the gaming industry to provide patrons with the tools to enjoy their experience responsibly. Pavilion Payments’ iGaming solutions provide a platform that streamlines usability and accessibility to make sports betting safe and fun. By implementing innovative digital capabilities, fans will be able to have an improved gaming experience while knowing their information is safe and secure.


Pavilion Payments’ industry-standard e-check network, VIP Preferred®, enables simple sports betting by linking patrons’ checking accounts directly with their wagering ledger, providing fast and safe access to funds. Pavilion Payments patrons are encouraged to utilize the comprehensive safety features offered by VIP Preferred®, including configurable pre-set spending limits, cooling-off periods, and voluntary self-exclusion. Using data to protect patrons from problem gambling reinforces the integrity and responsibility of the gaming industry.


Gaming responsibly is promoted all through September but is also a year-round effort. Join the conversation using #RGEM2023 to help AGA and Pavilion Payments spread awareness for responsible gaming throughout September.
