EML's partner AptPay is focusing on launching several new programs in Canada and the United States in 2022.

EML Payments (ASX: EML) (S&P/ASX 200) is excited to power AptPay’s inaugural gaming and gambling General Purpose Reloadable (GPR) program in Canada with new client Woodbine Entertainment, Canada’s largest horse racing operator and home of world-class horse racing. EML’s in-person gambling and in-app gaming products help casinos go cashless through AptPay’s integrated platform.

The digital and physical payment solution is ideal for the instant disbursement of winnings. Physical cards are tap-ready for contactless payments throughout Canada.

”Through this incredible partnership for AptPay with Woodbine’s HPIbet, consumers can finally receive their winnings in real-time from wagering. They can push money directly to accepting bank accounts or have a reloadable prepaid card issued instantly in the new year. This is the first program in Canada allowing winnings to be instantly disbursed to patrons,” stated Shams Syed, CEO at AptPay.

”EML is delighted to support AptPay’s gaming and gambling ambitions in Canada and future growth plans across the North American market,” noted Ailie Kofoid, CEO Americas at EML.

Shams Syed recently spoke during ‘The Next Generation of Gaming’ session at EML.CON Global.
