Sightline Payments, having played an integral role in this week’s Responsible Gaming Education Week, has confirmed that it will sponsor the 2021 EPIC Player Protection Symposium, in partnership with SBC.
The symposium is the industry’s first high-level event dedicated to building a robust gambling harm prevention ecosystem and takes place on November 30, 2021. It will include 100+ C-level stakeholders from casino gaming, professional sports, media, and politics.
Sightline’s SVP, Strategic Alliances and Government Affairs Jonathan Michaels will participate in a panel discussion on innovation and new markets, which will include other leaders across the gaming landscape.
The announcement underlines Sightline’s longstanding commitment to responsible gaming and corporate social responsibility. The firm is a founding partner of the UNLV International Gaming Institute’s Payments Collaborative, a research initiative dedicated to analyzing how the gaming industry’s transition to cashless wagering can help mitigate risky gaming behavior.
It is also a proud adopter of Conscious Gaming’s PlayPause technology, which extends self-exclusion limits across state lines.
“Leading on responsible gaming is a fundamental goal of our business,” said Sightline Co-CEO Omer Sattar. “Sightline is proud to develop new digital tools for responsible gaming, and we’ll never stop innovating until every player is equipped and empowered to gamble responsibly. As digital payments adoption in gaming continues to grow, ensuring that our products help customers wager responsibly is simply good business.”
“The United States gaming market has a unique opportunity to bring real responsible gaming measures to this growing industry,” said Joe Pappano, Sightline Co-CEO. “Through our participation at the EPIC Player Protection Symposium, we look forward to driving innovation with leaders across gaming, sports and hospitality to showcase how digital payments can help revolutionize responsible gaming for our customers.”
