Special Events Stage
Post-PASPA sport-betting activity is accelerating in the U.S. and, as additional states continue to regulate the vertical, operators are realizing the importance of developing a broad and streamlined payments strategy to maximize player acquisition and retention. Join a team of experts from Golden Nugget, Paysafe, Visa and Worldpay to discuss the major payments challenges to date, players' payment preferences (credit cards, digital wallets, prepaid online cards and online cash), current trends and updates on fraud and risk. The panel will also forecast what's next for U.S. iGaming and the payments space in 2020 and beyond. In addition, you'll get a first-hand operator perspective from Golden Nugget on lessons learned and navigating a seamless launch with a watertight payment offering.
