Sports Betting Grows in Popularity Nationwide
According to various surveys, pro football, basketball, and baseball top the list of favorite sports to bet on in the United States. Online sports betting and iGaming is quickly gaining in popularity. In fact, four in ten survey respondents reported that they had placed an online sports bet at least once a week.
With the US sports betting market expected to grow exponentially, Game On is a very useful new funding option for any sports bettor. Players can easily share the fun of sports betting and daily fantasy sports with family and friends as a gift or use the card themselves to quickly fund their accounts.
Game On cards is already available at many grocery stores and other leading retailers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Some of the retailers include The Giant Company, ACME, Stop and Shop, and Giant Eagle, and many others. You can also buy a card online at GetGameOn.com. However, if you buy a Game On card, must have an account with one of the sportsbooks listed on the front of the card. Here’s how Game On works:

- Load between $20 and $400 at checkout to your card, plus pay the activation fee, ranging between $3 .95–$5.95.
- After purchase, unpackage it and note the card number, CVV, and expiry date.

Survey Respondents Asked for a Sports Betting Gift Card
“The Game On card is perfect for both sports betting enthusiasts and gift card lovers. The card combines a digital way to fund sports betting with the ease of a gift card,” said Brett Narlinger, head of Global Commerce at Blackhawk Network. “Sports bettors who were surveyed are clamoring for an easy payment option providing increased control of spending and privacy, rather than linking personal banking information to their sportsbook account. Our new Game On card addresses those concerns.”
According to research, privacy, security and the ability to easily manage funds are all big concerns for sports bettors in how they fund their accounts. The Game On card offers this type of privacy and security for bettors. The card can also be used to help control spending.
This new way to fund a sports betting account will eventually become available in more states, subject to state approval and applicable law.
