LAS VEGAS -- September 23, 2013

Sightline Payments^® (Sightline), a leading payments provider to the gaming
industry - together with its strategic partner Vantiv Inc. (NYSE: VNTV) - is
demonstrating how its award-winning Loyalty Card Plus^® prepaid card solution
will transform the gaming ecosystem.

Vantiv and Sightline’s exhibit (Booth #4024) will showcase how combining the
functions of a prepaid account with existing casino loyalty card programs can
result in increased convenience and simplicity for gaming patrons and
operators alike.

Key features of the prepaid solution include:

  *Slot Systems: Our proprietary SPAN^TM network ties a casino’s existing
    loyalty card to access prepaid funds, allowing real-time wagering account
    transfers in and out at the slot device.^1
  *Table Games and Poker Rooms: Our webSPAN^TM application can run on
    existing hardware in the pit or at the casino/poker room cage, performing
    chip purchases or redemptions to/from the prepaid card, as well as
    real-time cash loads.^1
  *Redemption Kiosks: The prepaid card can be used at kiosks to print slot
    tickets and to redeem slot tickets, placing value back on the card.^1
  *iGaming and Mobile: Prepaid funds can be used to load wagering accounts
    for online and mobile gaming. Our proprietary SPAN^TM network provides
    high approval rates, and offers the confidence and convenience of instant
    cash outs.^1
  *Jackpots: Patrons can have immediate access to their funds and increased
    peace of mind when they have jackpots credited directly to their prepaid
    card. In addition, the inefficiency of hand pays is reduced.^1
  *Retail Purchases: The prepaid card can be used for food and beverage,
    retail and entertainment purchases – both on and off the casino property –
    everywhere Discover^® is accepted. And, cash withdrawals can be made at
    ATMs nationwide.
  *Customer Intelligence: The prepaid card gives casino marketing a better
    view of what patrons are spending their money on both inside and outside
    the casino. Marketing can use that intelligence to better incentivize
    patrons with the things they really value. And, they can put those
    incentives directly into the prepaid account.

“It’s pretty remarkable what our prepaid technology can do when it comes to
changing the payments landscape in both iGaming and brick-and-mortar gaming,”
said Kirk Sanford, Sightline Payments CEO and President. “The breadth of
operators now backing Loyalty Card Plus demonstrates significant industry
support for a safe, secure, and responsible prepaid payment solution in both
on-property and online environments.”

G2E attendees are invited to join Omer Sattar, EVP Prepaid & Interactive, who
will be moderating a panel titled, “A View of the Customer: Armed with Data”
on Tuesday, September 24, at 9:15 a.m.-10:15 a.m. The panel will focus on
cross-marketing terrestrial and online players and how to collect, analyze and
utilize information. Experts in the field will offer training on key concepts
and explain how operators can make the most of the information they're given.
