International Game Technology (IGT) has received regulatory approval from the Nevada regulator for its Resort Wallet module and IGT Advantage casino management system.
This means IGT's entire cashless gaming solution, which includes the option for one-step external funding via IGTPay on personal mobile devices, is approved for deployment throughout the State.
"IGT earning Nevada regulatory approval for our award-winning, fully integrated cashless solution is a perfect bookend for a year marked with tremendous momentum for our Resort Wallet and IGTPay cashless gaming modules of the IGT Advantage system," said Ryan Reddy, IGT SVP Global PM VLT, Systems, Payments & Poker.
Nevada casinos will now be able to offer players the option to fund their cashless wagering accounts directly from their personal mobile devices through IGT Advantage, eliminating the need to handle cash or visit a casino cage, ATM or kiosk. Players will be able to securely transfer funds to and from their cashless wagering account from a range of external payment sources such as bank accounts, credit and debit cards or Sightline Play+ prepaid accounts.
Funds can then be seamlessly transferred to and from a slot game with a simple tap of a smartphone when initiating or concluding cashless slot play.
"This milestone achievement will allow for players and operators throughout the State to enjoy the many benefits of cashless gaming and reinforces Nevada's reputation as a future-forward gaming jurisdiction that is committed to advancing the player experience," said Reddy.
