Foundation casino management system interfaces with Everi’s digital wallet.

Acres Manufacturing Company (AMC) on Friday said its Foundation casino management system is enabling cashless gaming at Penn National Gaming, Inc.’s, new Hollywood Casino York in Pennsylvania.

Las Vegas-based AMC noted it previously installed Foundation at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course and the Meadows Racetrack & Casino in Pennsylvania.

Penn National said Foundation will continue to be deployed at its casinos, pending regulatory approvals.

The two parties said Foundation interfaces to Penn National’s mychoice wallet, which is powered by Everi Holdings, Inc.'s, digital CashClub Wallet, to transfer funds from player accounts to the game of their choice.The solution works on slot machines and table games throughout the casino floor.

In addition to cashless technology, AMC said Foundation provides a rich, real-time stream of player behavior data that is delivered through an open API that allows Penn National to understand and predict player behavior and preferences.

“We at Acres applaud Penn National’s efforts to constantly improve the player experience,” John Acres, founder of AMC, said in a statement. “Penn National’s technical team very quickly harnessed the power of Foundation to deliver cashless gaming.”

Todd George, executive vice president of operations at Penn National, added, “We are thankful for the hard work and collaboration with Acres and Everi in helping us deliver customer engagement technology. This partnership allows for our customers to safely and securely fund their favorite slots and table games cardless, cashless and contactless without the need to carry cash or go to an ATM.”

Acres Manufacturing Company is a provider of casino systems technology.
