Nuvei strengthens US footprint through AGA link

Nuvei Corporation has strengthened its position within the gaming space, becoming part of the American Gaming Association (AGA). 

Following its joining of the AGA, the national trade group representing the US casino industry, Nuvei’s Chief Corporate Development Officer, Neil Erlick, will serve on the AGA board of directors, offering unique insights to the industry’s work on advancing payment modernisation opportunities in gaming.

Philip Fayer, Nuvei’s Chairman and CEO, commented: “We are excited to collaborate with the AGA and are confident that our participation will further expand our growth in the US iGaming market. Playing an active role in ensuring that industry collaborators are up to speed with technological advances is very important to us. 

“As innovative leaders committed to the success of online gaming operators, we find it our responsibility to ensure regulatory bodies are fully aware of what payment tech is capable of in encouraging responsible wagers, fighting fraud, and equipping merchants and players alike with the necessary tools to ensure fast and secure transactions.”  

Recently announcing its ongoing growth in the US iGaming industry, Nuvei has onboarded operators from all online gaming sectors. With the market growing exponentially, Nuvei has underlined its ambition for growth with the acquisition of multiple licenses. 

“We are excited to welcome Nuvei and their industry expertise to the AGA family,” added Bill Miller, President and CEO at AGA. “The AGA is focused on helping the industry recover from the devastating impacts of COVID-19 on gaming. As an industry and an association, we are stronger when we’re working together. With the help of members like Nuvei, we can accelerate our recovery.”
