Over the years, IGT, winner of the Global Gaming Awards' Product Innovation of the Year Award, has established itself as a leader in the cashless space through its high-performing and user-friendly Resort Wallet and IGTPay modules for the IGT Advantage casino management system (CMS).
Resort Wallet is a versatile cashless payments module that can be deployed in several ways to meet the specific needs and demands of the gaming venue in need. The Resort Wallet can also be coupled with IGTPay to deliver an integrated turnkey solution. Resort Wallet can be deployed in two different ways. Firstly, “carded” cashless using a casino-branded loyalty card. Players load cash into a personal digital wallet from either the casino cash desk or a slot machine, and access those funds from any slot machine or table game using the card.
Secondly, “cardless” cashless by using a digital wallet on a mobile device. When patrons employ IGT’s Resort Wallet feature with any Cardless Connect-enabled gaming machine, their smartphone is turned into a secure digital wallet. Funds in the digital wallet can be redeemed for cash or safely maintained for the next play session.
Renato Ascoli, IGT CEO global gaming said: “IGT winning ‘Product Innovation of the Year’ in the Global Gaming Awards is an excellent start to our G2E 2021 and a reflection of the market relevance and vast potential of our Resort Wallet and IGTPay cashless gaming technologies. The Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas is among the most lauded gaming industry awards programs and we’re pleased that our transformative Resort Wallet and IGTPay solutions stood apart for their innovation, and the many benefits they deliver to our customers and their players.”
IGTPay is available in a number of jurisdictions, including Oklahoma, which launched the payment platform throughout the Indigo Sky Casino, Wyandotte, Okla in September.
