SaharaBets Selects PayNearMe’s MoneyLine™ to Enable Faster, Easier Deposits and Withdrawals from a Single Platform

August 30, 2022

The MoneyLine platform enables SaharaBets to provide players with a wide range of deposit and withdrawal options to quickly and easily access their funds.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., August 30, 2022 – PayNearMe, the modern and reliable payments platform designed to manage the complexities of iGaming and sports betting, today announced that SaharaBets is live with the MoneyLineplatform, offering Arizona players convenient options for depositing and withdrawing funds and a seamless player experience.

“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 U.S. 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,” said 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.

PayNearMe provides a complete payment solution for online sports betting and iGaming, with a focus on removing friction to enable operators to deliver a best-in-class player journey. With one platform and integration, operators can facilitate deposits, payouts and engagements using data to automate decisioning and better manage payment experiences that ultimately reduce costs and increase revenue.

PayNearMe operates and processes payments for licensed online sports betting and iGaming operators in 19 U.S. states and is expanding its gaming footprint as new states legalize online sports betting and iGaming.
