Paysafe Enhances Sportech’s Bump 50:50 Software with Contactless Payments
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Paysafe, a leading specialized payments platform, has expanded its omnichannel payments offering for Bump 50:50, the Sportech division providing a digital raffle solution to sports and nonprofit charity foundations. As North American in-stadium sports return, fans will be able to enter raffles safely and securely through Paysafe-processed contactless card payments at points of sale (POS) from Handpoint, a pioneer in defining integrated payments.

The current COVID-19 pandemic has driven strong growth in contactless payments in the U.S. market. Fifty-nine percent of American consumers are happier making an in-person payment using an NFC-enabled card than they were a year ago, according to Paysafe’s April 2020 research.

Responding to this trend and innovating during the current shutdown of in-stadium spectator sports, Paysafe and Bump 50:50 have brought to market the charitable raffle space’s first fully integrated contactless payments solution. When fans return to stadiums, Bump 50:50’s partners, which include the foundations of over 120 professional, collegiate and nonprofit organizations (numbering dozens of NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL teams), can enable them to purchase raffle tickets from in-venue sales staff using card tap-and-pay at Handpoint’s lightweight mobile POS terminals.

Transactions are processed seamlessly through the proprietary Bump 50:50 application installed on in-stadium sellers’ mobile tablets. The contactless enhancement is supported by both Android and Apple iOS versions of the solution’s app.

Paysafe’s omnichannel offering also allows sports fans to win raffle prizes and raise money for charities by using Bump 50:50’s online platforms at home or on-the-go via their own mobile devices, with all card-not-present transactions processed by Paysafe.

Carla Erlick, Senior Vice President, ISV Channel at Paysafe, said: “Sportech’s Bump 50:50 has become one of our flagship independent software vendor (ISV) partners, truly showcasing our omnichannel payments offering. Further complementing our card-not-present payments relationship with Bump 50:50, we’re delighted to strengthen our card-present support for Bump 50:50’s partners to better meet the new North American reality of in-person transactions.”

David Kurland, President of Sportech’s Bump 50:50, commented: “Bump 50:50 is pleased to offer our partners contactless pay through our integration with Paysafe. This is one more example of Bump 50:50’s continuous pursuit of new technologies and platform enhancements designed to help our partners reach their fundraising goals. We are also mindful of the fact that contactless pay is especially critical at this time, as our partners are developing safety protocols that will help them return to in-person events.”

GVC Appoints Dr. Mark Griffiths as Special Adviser on Player Protection and Safer Gambling Issues

GVC Holdings has appointed online gambling addiction specialist Dr. Mark Griffiths as a special adviser on player protection and safer gambling issues.

Dr. Mark Griffiths, Distinguished Professor of Behavioural Addiction and Psychology at Nottingham Trent University, will audit GVC’s policies and processes on responsible gaming and suggest improvements. He was a part of the World Health Organisation working party that formally recognised “gaming disorder” as a psychological condition last year.

Last week, GVC’s CEO Shay Segev set out his direction for the Group, focusing on two strategic pillars of sustainability and growth, underpinned by the Group’s industry-leading proprietary technology. This included a commitment, under the new Sustainability Charter, to continue to lead the industry on responsible gambling.

A core part of this is the launch of the Advanced Responsibility & Care (ARC) programme. The ARC programme encompasses scientific analysis of player behaviour to inform the enhancement of player protections. GVC’s data scientists then derive predictive models and analytics to score players for potential indicators of protection. Each player has a dynamic risk rating aligned to their play patterns and other criteria to enable real-time monitoring and analysis tools to enable early interventions to improve player protection.

Professor Griffiths’ work will be instrumental in delivering ARC. He will work with the business to apply findings from the behaviours of over 160 million players on GVC’s global database to help develop stronger rules, measures and interventions. He will also draw on GVC’s existing multi-million-dollar partnership with Harvard Medical School, now two years into a five-year study into addiction.
