IGT is seeking to usher in a new era of cashless gaming as it confirms the final stage of Nevada regulatory approval for its Resort Wallet.

The module being approved allows for the expansion of the wallet, with it being deployed throughout the State, enabling customers to give their casino patrons the option of a reduced-contact, safer, and more efficient cashless slot gaming experience.

“Our Resort Wallet solution ensures that our customers can experience the increased liquidity, player convenience, and enhanced safety that only cashless gaming can deliver,” said Ryan Reddy, IGT Vice President, VLT, Systems and Payments Products. “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.”

The approved Resort Wallet carded cashless module grants players the ability to use a loyalty card to transfer cash into a secure digital wallet from either the casino cash desk or any Resort Wallet-enabled slot machine. 

Players can then insert their PIN-protected card into the slot machine, utilise those funds to their game play, and cash out to their secure digital wallet at their will. 

The carded cashless module is one of three variations available as part of IGT’s Resort Wallet solution, the industry’s only fully integrated, turnkey cashless technology.
