Sports betting operator BetMGM has announced a partnership with payment provider TAPPP which will see BetMGM gift cards made available across the US.
The gift cards will be stocked in major convenience and grocery chains in states where sports betting is legal. They are currently accessible in 6000 locations across eight states, and they can be bought in denominations of $25 and $50.
BetMGM’s head of payments Maria Tomlinson said: “One of the biggest pieces of feedback we get from our customers is that they want a simple and convenient way to fund their accounts.
“Just in time for the start of football season, we’re thrilled to introduce an option for players to quickly and securely fund their BetMGM accounts, while avoiding deposit failures.”
TAPPP founder and CEO Sandy Agarwal added: “BetMGM is synonymous with sports betting and will now be ubiquitous in some of the largest retailers across the U.S. They are the perfect partner in our journey to make sports betting and iGaming more accessible.
“Expanding the available funding options for sports bettors along with providing the ability to share in the BetMGM experience through gifting perfectly aligns with TAPPP’s mission, to create more access and engagement for fans.”
