888 Holdings has selected Global Payments’ iGaming solutions to power its payment offerings for its SI Sportsbook.
The implementation of Global Payments’ iGaming Solutions will help deliver ‘a frictionless funding experience’ to SI Sportsbook users via their smart devices, as well as offer the sportsbook a multi-channel approach, connecting online and brick-and-mortar gaming players.
SI Sportsbook will utilize Global Payments’ VIP Preferred Online ACH system – built for funding and withdrawals for online sports betting – and the VIP Preferred ACH network – which gives users quick access to funds from their on-file checking account.
Christopher Justice, President of Global Payments Gaming Solutions, commented: “At Global Payments, our top priority is providing industry-leading solutions that our partners can leverage to create a safe and secure sports betting experience for patrons.
“We are pleased to partner with SI Sportsbook to help them launch innovative online betting solutions for sports fans.”
Launched in 2021, the SI Sportsbook was purposely built for the US market and leverages 888 Holdings’ proprietary and scalable technology with the Sports Illustrated brand. It is currently only operational in Colorado, but there are plans to launch it in additional states.
“Delivering a first-class betting and gaming experience is what SI Sportsbook was created for, and a key part of this is offering players a diverse suite of payment options,” added John Atkinson, Director of Business Development at 888.
“Partnering with Global Payments Gaming Solutions enables us to enhance the player experience and further the position of SI Sportsbook as a cutting-edge platform in the market.”
