Saracen Casino launches Arkansas’ first sports betting app

Saracen Casino Resort (Pine Bluff, Ark.) has selected Global Payments’ iGaming solutions for its new sports betting app, BetSaracen.

Founded in 2019, Saracen Casino Resort’s 80,000 square foot gaming area features 2,300 slot machines and nearly 40 table games. Earlier this year, the state of Arkansas legalised mobile sports betting, and gaming institutions are eager to offer a mobile solution. Saracen Casino Resort is breaking into the mobile gaming industry with BetSaracen, the state’s first mobile sports betting app.

Global Payments’ iGaming solutions allow casinos to leverage a multi-channel approach to connect online and brick-and-mortar gaming. Global Payments’ VIP Lightspeed platform powers funding and withdrawals for iGaming, while VIP Preferred e-check network allows users to effortlessly access funds from their checking account.

Carlton Saffa, CMO at Saracen Casino Resort, said: “As we enter the mobile gaming space, we wanted to offer the best possible gaming experience.”

“With Global Payment’s iGaming solutions, we can provide our patrons with a broad assortment of gaming and payment options.”

Christopher Justice, president of Global Payments Gaming Solutions, added: “As an industry leader, Global Payments Gaming Solutions strives to provide patrons with the flexibility to game from any location.”

“We are excited to work with Saracen Casino Resort and help them launch Arkansas’ first mobile sports betting app.”
