Trust Payments US is a part of our international group, with our office being in the great city of Atlanta. Since 2019, we have found many new and innovative verticals to offer our technology and payment services. The choice to expand into the US gambling and gaming sector was an exciting and significant move for the company. The view on the industry has majorly shifted in the last few years, bringing a more positive image and more regulations. The Gambling and Gaming sector saw a massive increase in popularity in recent years and is now worth around £194 billion. Gaming businesses have benefitted from a substantial increased annual income. They became an important economic engine for local communities.
Along with iGaming, the demand for gaming businesses continues to increase, with much of the income coming from the expansion of the legal sports betting community within the states. With the rise of digitalisation, especially during the pandemic, more people are wanting to bet and play games from the comfort of their own homes. So, the industry of iGaming has seen a massive revenue increase over the years. In 2019, the online gaming industry reached almost £43 billion in the US.
But the income from gaming doesn’t come easily without the right payment provider offering a pay-in, pay-out solution that is hassle-free for your players.
At Trust Payments, our mission is to help gaming operators optimise their sales and customer experience through easing speedy and effortless payments, loyalty and data management. We have a complete unified payment offering, including a cloud-based payments platform and merchant acquiring.
We have many gaming experts with years of experience in the area. Our own Jeannie Stinnett, Senior Vice President – Commercial Programs, is a vital member of the US gaming team and brings our organisation a broad amount of knowledge and ability. During her 20+ year career in payments and financial services, Jeannie has developed many pay-in and pay-out options for US casinos, advance deposit wagering, and fantasy sports operators. She was involved in selling and managing the relationship for the two largest fantasy sports operators (Fan Duel and Draft Kings) and the two largest Indian Casinos in the US (Foxwoods and Hard Rock). Jeannie served as a consultative member of the National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA).
