Cardholders Can Fund Sports Betting, Gaming Activities with Play+ Prepaid Mastercard
LAS VEGAS (August 25, 2021) — Sightline Payments is partnering with Mastercard to launch the Play+ Prepaid Mastercard, which players can use to fund their sports betting, online gaming, and casino wagering accounts.
Sightline and Mastercard launched their first branded Play+ Prepaid Mastercard with Resorts World Las Vegas, which opened on June 24, 2021. Cardholders can pay for all their gaming and nongaming activities by syncing the Resorts World Play+ Prepaid Mastercard with their smartphones using digital wallets or the Resorts World Las Vegas mobile app.
“The foundation of Play+ is to provide customers with a safe, secure and responsible payments experience to fund their gaming and entertainment,” said Joe Pappano, CEO of Sightline Payments. “Mastercard’s entrance into the Play+ family will further cement that goal, given their global reach, success and trust among their cardholders. We look forward to working collaboratively with the Mastercard team to enhance funding options within the gaming industry and further the digital transformation of the consumer experience.”
“As consumers increasingly seek digital-first experiences, we are proud to partner with Sightline to compliment a fully digital engagement for the patrons at Resorts World Las Vegas leveraging our cashless solutions,” said Chiro Aikat, EVP Products & Innovation for Mastercard in North America.
The opening of Resorts World Las Vegas signified a benchmark in the casino gaming industry’s digital transformation by offering full cashless gaming technology across the entire resort experience. A joint partnership with Play+ enabled customers visiting Resorts World Las Vegas to use their Play+ account across the resort experience, including gaming on slot machines and table games, without the need to carry cash. Patrons using the Resorts World Las Vegas Play+ Mastercard, issued by Bank of George, are able to set time and spend limits, track their overall spending, and receive monthly statements about their activity.
