US.- Igaming payments platform PayNearMe has announced it has been approved by the Arizona Department of Gaming to provide its services to licensed operators in the state.

Penn Interactive’s mobile sports betting app Barstool Sportsbook has been accepting cash deposits at retail locations with PayNearMe since September 2020 and is now among the first to go live in Arizona with the company.

PayNearMe has launched with four clients in the state, and is working to enable additional operators to accept players’ cash and electronic payment deposits.

Michael Kaplan, chief revenue officer and general manager at PayNearMe said: “Players want a frictionless deposit experience, and PayNearMe’s iGaming solution helps operators improve the igaming experience by enabling players to quickly and easily fund their accounts using any tender they choose — including Apple Pay and Google Pay — via a smartphone.”

Jake Francis, senior director of operations at Penn Interactive added: “We are ready to rapidly expand the Barstool Sportsbook & Casino app across the U.S. in tandem with states legalizing sports betting.

 “PayNearMe’s technology makes it possible for us to quickly begin accepting cash deposits as states go live.”
