Blackhawk Network Inc, a multinational supplier of branded payments, has introduced the ‘Game On’ card available to purchase in New Jersey and Pennsylvania for purchase and use on sports betting accounts.

Issued by Metabank, NA, Member FDIC, Game On is a payment card with multiple sportsbook brands that allows customers with their favourite sports betting operators to conveniently add funds to their accounts.

To finance their accounts with many operators, such as FanDuel Sportsbook, DraftKings Sportsbook, BetRivers/PlaySugarHouse Sportsbooks & Casinos, Parx Casino, and others, players can use the money associated with a Game On card.

When watching their favourite teams, customers can share sports betting and daily fantasy with friends and family as a gift or treat themselves to some fun.

The Game On Card provides a player with protection and privacy and can be used as a spending management tool, as players can use the card to keep their desired amount of funds.

Brett Narlinger, Blackhawk Network Head of Global Commerce, said: “Perfect for sports betting enthusiasts and gift card lovers alike, the Game On card pairs a fun, digital way to fund sports bets with the convenience of a gift card.

“People we’ve surveyed who have placed sports bets are clamouring for a payment option that provides increased control of spending and privacy, versus linking personal banking information when funding their sportsbook account. Our new Game On card helps address those concerns.”

The cards are available for purchase in many grocery stores and other leading retailers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania on its debut, or online at Game On card purchasers must have one of the sportsbooks displayed on the front of the card with a sports betting account.

Subject to applicable legislation and state approval, the Game On card will become accessible in additional states.
