Gambling – Doubling down on the US market, changing the game with faster payouts

Published

on

We found an interesting update about the developments of the gambling industry in the USA.

Based on the blog post written by Worldpay, there have been huge developments in the gambling industry over the last 6 months. The blog post highlights a talk with Daniel Belda, VP of Digital Content & Gambling, to see what’s been happening and what’s yet to come.

You can find the full article below:

What have your top 3 highlights of 2018 been so far?

  • As of 14th May 2018, the Supreme Court decided to give individual US States the ability to legalise betting on sporting events, which makes for a significant opportunity and new market dynamics.
  • The World Cup fever has hit and it has been full of unpredictable results and unexpected knockouts. It’s been a very exciting time for the gambling industry.
  • One of the key highlights for us is working with and learning from our colleagues across the pond in what was called Vantiv Entertainment Solutions, about the US gambling market and understanding the new opportunities our collaboration now brings across the globe.

Recently, there have been some major developments in terms of gambling in the US.  What opportunities do you see these presenting gambling companies?

Although the Supreme Court decision  paves the way for states to self-regulate, we will only start seeing opportunities materialize towards the end of the year once states have been able to create and vote on their legislation. We see several major players already positioning themselves to take advantage of these opportunities as soon as they become real.

What are you looking forward to the most in the 2nd half of 2018?

  • From everything going on, I’m most excited about the opportunities created in the US due to the Supreme Court decision. With so much regulatory change, for the rest of the year we will be looking at how companies deal with these changes and how we can help in that process.
  • Visa Direct and faster payouts have resulted in a huge shift in the gambling landscape, changing the payouts model from 2-5 days to 30 mins. This is going to enable global, regional, domestic and cross-border real-time payments. Players will benefit from faster deposits and withdrawals, and merchants can manage this through a single gateway integration.

Which gambling companies are doing exciting things – and why?

  • Betfair acquiring US fantasy football company, FanDuel, earlier this year to take advantage of PASPA changes in the future.
  • Stars Group have agreed to buy Sky Betting and Gaming, which would create the largest publicly listed gambling company in the world.
