Partnerships with Green Dot and InComm Payments Provide New Funding Option at 100,000+ Outlets
LAS VEGAS — (March 3, 2022)
Today, Sightline Payments announced new partnerships with Green Dot and InComm Payments to provide cash loading options for Play+ accounts at more than 100,000 locations nationwide. Adding cash to Sightline’s suite of funding options for Play+ gives consumers even more choice to fund their wagering account with their preferred payment method.
Play+ account holders can now fund their activities with cash at over 100,000 retail outlets nationwide. Customers can deposit cash through InComm Payments’ VanillaDirect service, leverage the Green Dot Network of retail locations to load their cards with cash in-store, or deposit cash to Green Dot’s MoneyPak to transfer funds to their Play+ account.
Sightline’s flagship Play+ solution places customer choice at the forefront of the gaming experience and empowers them to wager responsibly. Play+ users can create an FDIC-insured reloadable account to fund their casino resort, sports betting, online casino, lottery, horse racing and non-gaming amenities with their preferred payment method. Depending on their location, customers can choose from a comprehensive list of funding options, including debit and credit cards, PayPal, and now cash. Sightline leverages over 70 partnerships to allow Play+ users to fund their activities in 43 states and the District of Columbia.
“Consumers expect a convenient funding experience that meets them where they are. We are constantly exploring new payment methods that enable Play+ customers to fund their gaming when and how they want, and this new partnership takes that one step further,” said Andrew Crowe, Sightline Payments SVP, Business Development. “Leveraging the strength of InComm Payments and Green Dot allows us to reach those who may prefer to use cash to fund their wagering accounts.”
“InComm Payments is a leader in providing cash load options to a variety of industries, across many of today’s most relevant companies,” said Mark Smith, Vice President at InComm Payments. “We are excited to add Sightline Payments to our roster of partners and to support cash loads for their customers in over 70,000 of our quality retail partner locations, including some of the biggest names in convenience, pharmacy, value, big box and grocery channels.”
“The Green Dot Network features more than 90,000 cash reload locations and enables partners to offer their customers more seamless, secure, and convenient access to their money,” said Brandon Thompson, EVP of Retail, Tax, Direct and Paycard at Green Dot. “We’re proud to partner with Sightline to support the millions of people looking for more convenient and accessible ways to manage their entertainment accounts like Play+.”
Sightline’s Play+ solution has been live with online gaming operators since 2013. Today, Play+ has more than 1.5 million accountholders nationally, providing those customers with a wide variety of funding options and fast access to their funds. In 2021, Sightline expanded the Play+ offering to enable cashless gaming at casinos in Nevada, Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, allowing customers visiting those properties to use their Play+ account to fund their gaming and non-gaming activities.
