Multinational gaming company International Game Technology (IGT) celebrated a “milestone” achievement with its ‘Resort Wallet’ carded cashless module, which successfully completed the last stage of Nevada regulatory approval.
The module, which eventually forms part of the IGT Advantage casino management system, is approved for deployment all over the state, giving the firm’s customers a reduced-contact, safer, and cashless slot gaming experience.
The Resort Wallet carded cashless module allows players to use a loyalty card to move cash into a digital wallet from either Resort Wallet-enabled slot machine or the casino cash desk.
Players can enter their PIN-protected card into the slot machine, add those funds to their game play, and cash out to their digital wallet any time.
Patrons also have the option to move a part of their funds from the slot machine to their digital wallet while printing a ticket at the slot machine for the balance.
“Our Resort Wallet solution ensures that our customers can experience the increased liquidity, player convenience, and enhanced safety that only cashless gaming can deliver,” Ryan Teddy, IGT vice president of VLT, systems and payments products, said.
“This solution will heighten the player experience to new levels while positioning our customers as technology leaders. We are grateful to the Nevada Gaming Control Board for enabling this momentous debut in the state,” he added
