Cashless gaming transformation for slot playersThe innovation known as IGTPay will offer full service via its Resort Wallet and they plan to begin with Agua Caliente casinos in the USA, before expanding to other areas.

IGT, a renowned game developer, will use its IGTPay solution to provide patrons with mobile access to cash from all the available outside sources.

It is a service that will reduce contact with cash, while players also get to enjoy utmost convenience.

"IGT's innovative Resort Wallet cashless solution with IGTPay technology, offered to patrons through Agua Caliente's Play Agua app, will help us deliver on our commitment to providing enhanced safety through reduced contact, and offering a more convenient gaming experience," Bill Oliver, Chief Information Officer, Agua Caliente Casinos.

"We're proud to be at the forefront of global gaming technological innovation with this new service, and are excited to leverage Resort Wallet and IGTPay to power the industry's most seamless loyalty program."

"Implementing IGT's Resort Wallet and IGTPay solutions will position Agua Caliente Casinos in the vanguard of advanced casino technology and player convenience," Ryan Reddy, IGT Senior Vice President of Global Product Management for VLT, Systems and Payments was quoted saying.

"By uniquely giving players seamless access to all major funding sources, Agua Caliente Casinos can enhance player engagement and loyalty and attract a more diverse player demographic, which can ultimately lead to increased revenues and profitability."

Agua Caliente Casinos are scheduled to begin this implementation of the Resort Wallet modules later on in 2021. In the suite, there are several things included like flexible variants of IGT's cashless provisions that are either carded or cardless.

A gamer’s PIN-protected Cashless Gambling Account may be used to fund both of these variants, either via digital external methods using the IGTPay (credit/debit cards, bank accounts, eWallets, or via cash deposits). This can be done at the casino cashiers, slot machines, or even kiosks.

Funds secured in the Cashless Gambling Account are preserved for the next gaming session. Also, it is possible for players to transfer funds between the available slot machines, in addition to Agua Caliente establishments. Besides, they can cash out funds into a bank account.

With this IGTPay funding arrangement, Agua Caliente Casinos are set to reap massive benefits from IGT's team of experienced experts in the Payments systems. The system has been in operation since 2013.

This end-to-end cashless solution from IGT is set to unlock an unmatched gamer experience. We look forward to more of such great innovations, not just from IGT, but other leading game providers as well.
