Payment technology partner Nuvei Corporation has joined the American Gaming Association (AGA), with Chief Corporate Development Officer Neil Erlick serving on the association’s board of directors.
While serving as a board member he will offer unique insights to the industry’s work on advancing payment modernization opportunities in gaming and be actively involved in AGA task forces, most significantly the Payments Modernization working group.
Philip Fayer, Nuvei 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.”
In line with its ongoing growth in the US igaming industry, the firm has on boarded operators from all online gaming sectors. And with the market growing exponentially, it has been swift in obtaining licensing in multiple states with many more on the way.
This, said the company, ensures US igaming operators experience the same innovation and seamless payments that their European counterparts have enjoyed for nearly two decades. The next natural step was to further participate in relevant discussions with advocates such as the AGA, who are equally committed to the business success, legislative, and regulatory issues of those that drive the igaming sector.
“We are excited to welcome Nuvei and their industry expertise to the AGA family,” said 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.”
