Sightline Payments elevates social responsibility focus with two new collaborations


Sightline Payments, a fintech specialising in digital payments solutions for the sports betting and casino markets, has underlined its focus on social responsibility, with two new partnerships in the US. 

The firm has linked with the American Gaming Association’s (AGA) Have A Game Plan, Bet Responsibly campaign, and Conscious Gaming’s PlayPause multi-jurisdictional self-exclusion technology.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Sightline as the first payments company partner in our responsible gaming campaign,” said AGA President and CEO Bill Miller. “Educating bettors on the importance of wagering responsibly – and funding that activity responsibly – is critical as sports betting in America continues to grow. 

“The AGA is grateful for Sightline’s commitment to growing this important initiative by sharing important messages with their customers.”

Sightline is the debut payments company to join AGA’s public service campaign on responsible sports wagering, joining the NHL, PGA Tour, UFC, NASCAR, Monumental Sports and Entertainment, the Vegas Golden Knights and FanDuel as an official campaign partner. 

Sightline is also becoming the first payments company to support Conscious Gaming’s PlayPause technology, which enables individuals who self-exclude from gaming to extend their protections across state lines

“As Conscious Gaming continues its efforts to provide modern solutions to aid patrons in responsible gaming and self-exclusion, it is imperative for us to reach consumers across the gaming landscape,” noted Anna Sainsbury, Conscious Gaming Trustee and GeoComply Chairman and Co-Founder. 

“Through Sightline’s commitment to PlayPause, this enables us to educate and assist consumers with one of the first steps in their gaming journey – funding their account. We appreciate Sightline’s commitment to being a leader in responsible gaming and are thrilled to have their support for PlayPause.”

“As the payments leader in the gaming industry, ensuring patrons can responsibly fund their entertainment is at the core of our business,” commented Joe Pappano, CEO of Sightline Payments. “Our partnerships with the AGA and Conscious Gaming further highlight our commitment and support to provide our customers with the most safe, secure and responsible gaming solutions.”
