GGB PODCAST: Omer Sattar, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President of Strategic Initiatives, Sightline Payments

The GGB Podcast welcomes Omer Sattar, the co-founder and executive vice president of strategic initiatives, Sightline Payments on the accelerating progress toward cashless gaming in the land-based and online gaming industries.

Sightline Payments has been developing unique cashless systems and strategies for over 10 years. When the pandemic made cash transactions disagreeable, casino operators finally began to understand the importance of going cashless. Omer Sattar, a co-founder and executive vice president of Sightline, explains why the move toward cashless transactions is accelerating and why the debut of Resorts World Las Vegas, with a full suite of cashless procedures, is so crucial to the success of the property. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros from his Las Vegas office in June.
