PayNearMe Expands Footprint with Approval to Process Online Sports Betting Payments in New York

Three of the industry’s largest operators now leveraging PayNearMe to accept cash deposits in New York as consumers begin placing wagers 

PayNearMe, the payments company designed to manage the complexities of iGaming and sports betting, today announced it has been granted approval by the New York Gaming Commission to provide its MoneyLine™ platform to licensed operators across the state.

In conjunction with the state Gaming Commission giving approved operators the green light to launch in the state, three operators expanded into New York with MoneyLine.  

“These clients are some of the industry’s largest operators.

They have been accepting cash deposits at retail locations with PayNearMe for years and can now accept players’ cash deposits for mobile sports betting in New York,” said Michael Kaplan, Chief Revenue Officer and General Manager at PayNearMe.

“We are actively working to launch additional operators upon approval and are thrilled to be paving the way in iGaming with our MoneyLine platform.” 

PayNearMe received New York approval in December of 2021, expanding its iGaming and online sports betting footprint to 18 states.

“Enabling our clients to go live on the same day online gambling was legalized in the state of New York ensures they will be able to seamlessly manage the billions of dollars projected to be wagered online in New York over the next year,” Kaplan said. “Ahead of the Super Bowl, millions of fans are watching and wagering on NFL and college playoffs. PayNearMe operators will be able to offer cash as a convenient and guaranteed deposit method.” 

Managing deposits and payouts is a complex process that requires technology designed specifically for the sports betting and iGaming industries.

“We have deep expertise in the industry and have worked closely with the New York Gaming Commission to ensure our service is compliant with all applicable statutory requirements,” said Connor McNulty, Senior Regulatory Counsel, PayNearMe.

“PayNearMe is focused on quickly and efficiently gaining approval as new states legalize online sports betting and iGaming.”
