PayNearMe approved to facilitate iGaming and online sports betting payments for licensed operators in Arkansas
SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–On the heels of being granted approval by the Arkansas Racing Commission to provide its MoneyLine™ platform to licensed operators across the state, PayNearMe today announced Saracen Casino Resort’s new online sports wagering app, BetSaracen, is live on MoneyLine, allowing players to go from deposit to play quickly and easily using convenient payment types including PayPal and Venmo, as well as cash at 245 retail locations across the state.
“With MoneyLine, we are giving our players the option of the fastest and most convenient way to make deposits using their favorite digital payment types or cash at participating retail locations in Arkansas,” said Carlton Saffa, Chief Market Officer at Saracen Casino Resort. “Additionally, MoneyLine’s integration with Amelco, BetSaracen’s sports betting platform, makes it easy to provide our players with additional deposit and withdrawal channels in the future, including the forthcoming ability to make real-time, cardless cash withdrawals at ATMs.”
Managing deposits and payouts is a complex process that requires technology designed specifically for the iGaming industry. PayNearMe has deep expertise in the gaming industry and worked closely with the Arkansas Gaming Commission to ensure MoneyLine is compliant with all applicable statutory requirements.
