Pavilion Payments is celebrating its new independence from Global Payments with the expansion of its VIP Preferred network across 13 new sites.

The service allows ACH deposits on sports betting and online casino sites across 400 different gambling establishments without having to re-enter information over and over again. The single enrollment program works across not just online but brick-and-mortar casino facilities as well, allowing customers to easily transfer cash

The newest VIP Preferred sites include:

Action 24/7
Betway Ohio
Circa Sportsbook Colorado
SuperBook Sportsbook Ohio

“Pavilion Payments aims to equip operators and patrons with technology that creates a seamless payments process that is safe and secure,” said Christopher Justice, President of Pavilion Payments. “VIP Preferred provides cutting-edge capabilities such as online banking credential enrollment that will truly improve the patron gaming experience.”

This is the first big announcement since Pavilion Payments separated from Global earlier this month. Parthenon Capital purchased the gaming division of Global and rebranded it under the Pavilion name.

Last year, the gaming product VIP Preferred drew criticism and claims that its lax security features were causing US sports bettors and poker players to be hacked.

At the time, Global Payments provided the following statement to SBC Americas:

“Our gaming business has been assisting law enforcement with an investigation into fraudulent accounts set up at unaffiliated third parties using stolen personal information. There has been no security breach or fraudulent accounts opened at our gaming business in connection with this investigation. The protection of our customers and their clients’ information and funds is our top priority. We have been working closely with these third parties to ensure all impacted individuals receive refunds.”
