International Game Technology PLC (IGT) has announced that it has completed the final stage of Nevada regulatory approval for its Resort Wallet carded cashless module.
The approved Resort Wallet will enable players to use a loyalty card to transfer cash into a secure digital wallet from either the casino cash desk or any Resort Well-enabled slot machine.
Players can then insert their PIN-protected card into the slot machine, apply those funds to their game play, and cash out to their secure digital wallet at any time.
They can also choose to move a portion of their funds from the slot machine to their digital wallet while printing a ticket at the slot machine for the balance.
In a released statement Ryan Reddy, IGT Vice President, VLT, Systems and Payments Products said: “Our Resort Wallet solution ensures that our customers can experience the increased liquidity, player convenience, and enhanced safety that only cashless gaming can deliver.
“This solution will heighten the player experience to new levels while positioning our customers as technology leaders. We’re grateful to the Nevada Gaming Control Board for enabling this momentous debut in the State.”
Back in October of last year, IGT posted a video to it’s YouTube showcasing some of the features of the Resort Wallet, stating in the description: “IGT is revolutionising Cashless Gaming yet again. Explore the benefits of going Cashless with IGT ADVANTAGE Resort Wallet and learn how easily adaptable this technology is for your players.”
Aside from slot play, customers can also access the funds in their Resort Wallet Cashless Wagering Account for table gaming, sports betting, and at retail points-of-sale.
The IGT ADVANTAGE system enables responsible gaming information to be displayed through the Service Window and NexGen display on the slot machine, as well as through notifications on the Resort Wallet-enabled cashless wagering mobile app.
