Blackhawk Network Inc, a global branded payments provider, has made the ‘Game On’ card available for purchase and use on sports betting accounts in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Issued by Metabank, NA, Member FDIC, Game On is a payment card featuring multiple sportsbook brands that allow consumers to easily add funds to their accounts with their favorite sports betting operators.
Players can use the money associated with a Game On card to fund their accounts with several operators such as FanDuel Sportsbook, DraftKings Sportsbook, BetRivers/PlaySugarHouse Sportsbooks & Casinos, Parx Casino, and others.
Consumers can share sports betting and daily fantasy with friends and family as a gift or treat themselves to some fun while watching their favorite teams.
The Game On card offers security and privacy for a player and can be used as a tool to control spending since players can use the card to hold their desired amount of funds.
Brett Narlinger, Head of Global Commerce at Blackhawk Network, said: “Perfect for sports betting enthusiasts and gift card lovers alike, the Game On card pairs a fun, digital way to fund sports bets with the convenience of a gift card.
“People we’ve surveyed who have placed sports bets are clamoring for a payment option that provides increased control of spending and privacy, versus linking personal banking information when funding their sportsbook account. Our new Game On card helps address those concerns.”
On its debut, the cards are available for purchase in New Jersey and Pennsylvania at many grocery stores and other leading retailers or online at GetGameOn.com. Game On card purchasers must have a sports betting account with one of the sportsbooks featured on the front of the card.
The Game On card will become available in additional states, subject to applicable law and state approval.
