BetMGM to gain ‘superior payment experience’ through Shift4 agreement


Shift4 Payments has struck an alliance with online gaming and sports betting platform BetMGM, which says that the partnership will deliver “a superior payment experience” for customers.

The integrated payment processing solutions provider will power gaming and betting transactions through BetMGM’s website and mobile application, using the group’s end-to-end processing technology. 

“We are excited to provide our seamless and secure payment solution to BetMGM and their customers,” Jared Isaacman, Shift4 Payments chief executive officer, said of the partnership. 

“Shift4 already processes payments for half the casinos on the Las Vegas strip and across the country, and this partnership with BetMGM will enable us to leverage that expertise as we move aggressively into online gaming and sports betting markets.”

This is the latest in a number of collaborations rolled-out by the MGM Resorts International and Entain, which most recently expanded its sports betting app into Washington DC courtesy of a partnership with the Washington Nationals.

This saw the group become the only mobile sports betting app available at Nationals Park, and followed partnerships with the Professional Fighters League and Everi.

“Shift4’s end-to-end solution will deliver a superior payment experience for our customers, with a streamlined transaction experience and enhanced security,” added Maria Tomlinson, head of payments at BetMGM.

“The company’s technology, capabilities, security, and service made it an easy decision to partner with them.”
