Sightline Payments marked Responsible Gaming Education Week by announcing it will sponsor the 2021 EPIC Player Protection Symposium, November 30, in partnership with SBC.
The symposium will include more than C-level stakeholders from casino gaming, professional sports, media, and politics. Sightline’s SVP, Strategic Alliances and Government Affairs Jonathan Michaels will participate on a panel discussion on innovation and new markets, which will include other leaders across the gaming landscape.
Through its participation, Sightline reaffirms its longstanding commitment to responsible gaming and corporate social responsibility, the company said. Sightline is a founding partner of the UNLV International Gaming Institute’s Payments Collaborative, a research initiative dedicated to analyzing how the gaming industry’s transition to cashless wagering can help mitigate risky gaming behavior. Sightline is also a proud adopter of Conscious Gaming’s PlayPause technology, which extends self-exclusion limits across state lines.
Earlier this year, Sightline joined the American Gaming Association’s Have A Game Plan, Bet Responsibly public service campaign to promote responsible sports wagering. Sightline will be a sponsor of fellow Have A Game Plan partner PGA Tour’s Shriners Children’s Open and plans to share messaging about responsibly funding accounts during the tournament which runs October 7-10 in Las Vegas.
“Leading on responsible gaming is a fundamental goal of our business,” said Sightline Co-CEO Omer Sattar. “Sightline is proud to develop new digital tools for responsible gaming, and we’ll never stop innovating until every player is equipped and empowered to gamble responsibly. As digital payments adoption in gaming continues to grow, ensuring that our products help customers wager responsibly is simply good business.”
“The United States gaming market has a unique opportunity to bring real responsible gaming measures to this growing industry,” said Joe Pappano, Sightline co-CEO. “Through our participation at the EPIC Player Protection Symposium, we look forward to driving innovation with leaders across gaming, sports and hospitality to showcase how digital payments can help revolutionize responsible gaming for our customers.”
