Sightline Payments is raising the stakes for select customers.

The cashless-payments provider Tuesday announced the launch of VIP Select, a program with which invited clientele with Play+ accounts will be able to fund up to $1 million. Casinos will have the option of offering VIP Select to patrons via invitation only.

“Our partners want the ability to offer increased account limits to their high-value clients,” said Sightline Payments Vice President and Product Manager, Payments, Jamie Parks in a statement. “Operators have long viewed Play+ as an indispensable payment solution across the gaming industry, and offerings like VIP Select further solidify our place as the payments solution across North America.”

VIP Select customers will undergo enhanced due diligence, including a complete application process and verified history with operator accounts. Eligible patrons must have accounts in good standing and not be on any responsible-gaming, self-exclusion, or other watchlists.

VIP Select has the same structure as established Play+ accounts, making it easy for operators to offer it to customers with no additional development.

Play+ enables customers to safely access gaming and entertainment from most digital gaming companies in the U.S., including 80 gaming operators in more than 40 states. Patrons can fund their sports and horse betting, igaming, and brick-and-mortar casino play.
