SaharaBets goes live with PayNearMe’s MoneyLine platform

SaharaBets is now live with PayNearMe’s MoneyLine platform.

“SaharaBets strives to deliver a superior player experience. We are offering our players convenient and fast options to deposit funds and working to minimize long waits to withdraw funds,” said Andrew Patterson, president of SaharaBets. “With MoneyLine, our players can access their funds instantly, significantly upgrading their player experience.”

According to PayNearMe’s iGaming study titled, “Understanding the iGaming Payment Experience: What US Bettors Want in the Deposit and Withdrawal Process,” the biggest pain point for players is that the process for making deposits (29%) and withdrawing funds (39%) takes too long.

“We’ve learned from consumers that payments greatly impact the player experience, and players want faster payouts,” added Leighton Webb, vice president and general manager of iGaming and sports betting, PayNearMe. “With PayNearMe, operators can deliver on players’ expectations and increase the speed of payouts so funds are available in minutes rather than days.”

Through MoneyLine’s seamless integration with IGT’s PlaySports platform, SaharaBets can process cards, ACH, cash and PayPal, plus payout options including push to debit card — all from one payment technology platform. SaharaBets plans to offer additional mobile-first deposit and withdrawal methods including Apple Pay, Google Pay and Venmo.
