Sightline, Bencon Partner on GameSecure System

Las Vegas-based payment solution provider Sightline Payments and Vancouver-based Bencon Technologies Inc. have entered into a partnership to bridge the current technological gap between digital self-exclusion functions and payment services.

The goal of the partnership is to ensure at-risk patrons are denied access to content or payment services in real time, through a link between Sightline’s GameSecure database solution and Sightline’s payment systems.

The first quarter of 2019 has resulted in a number of violations of self-excluded patrons gaining access to content in the U.S. market, meaning regulator fines have been issued to non-compliant operators. GameSecure’s real-time database solution ensures these patrons do not gain access to digital content once self-excluded and by partnering with Sightline’s Play+ platform, it creates another barrier to a patron’s payment activity.

“The Sightline team has been committed to responsible gaming for more than 20 years, and we are very excited to announce this important partnership,” said Cameron Conn, co-founder of Bencon Technologies Inc.

A primary goal of the partnership will be to work with the responsible and problem gambling communities to ensure these new solutions will work to enhance future programs for player protection.
