Last week, Sightline Payments, a leading digital payments provider for the U.S. sports betting and casino gaming markets, announced that it has ranked as the 217th fastest-growing company on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 list. Sightline is the only Las Vegas-based company and the sole representative from the gaming industry to make this year’s list.
Sightline uses patented technology to apply cutting-edge solutions to an industry projected to grow to more than $150 billion in the next few years. Sightline is Nevada’s first FinTech unicorn and has more than 1.5 million cardholders on its proprietary Play+ solution. The company’s 70-plus operator partners include leading sports betting and online casino brands. In 2021, Sightline launched table games and slots digital payment options alongside casino resort cashless solutions.
“Each year the Technology Fast 500 shines a light on leading innovators in technology and this year is no exception,” said Paul Silverglate, vice chairman of Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology sector leader. “In the face of innumerable challenges resulting from the pandemic, the best and brightest were able to pivot, reinvent and transform and grow. We celebrate the winning organizations and especially the talented employees driving their success.”
Sightline’s technology provides players cashless payment options while creating a safer and more efficient payment ecosystem for gaming operators. Sightline is the only payments company providing cashless solutions for all aspects of the integrated casino resort.
“It’s been a historic year for Sightline ushering in a new era of cashless wagering in our space, and this recognition further validates our ability to continue leading the gaming and hospitality industries through its digital transformation,” said Sightline Co-CEO Joe Pappano.
“The pandemic has underscored the urgent need for tech solutions in a variety of areas across health care, fintech, energy tech, entertainment, to name a few, so reliance on innovators like the winners of the Technology Fast 500 is more important than ever,” said Christie Simons, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “These companies are not only at the cutting edge, transforming the way we do business, but most importantly, recognize the strategic importance of ongoing innovation, especially in the ever-changing world of technology.”
The Deloitte Technology Fast 500 is a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing companies in North America, now in its 27th year. This is the second time Sightline has been named to Deloitte’s Fast 500, with the previous honor in 2019.
