The card provides a seamless and effortless slot gaming experience that reduces contact in the casino. Players will be able to use the Resort Wallet to transfer their cash from a loyalty card to a digital wallet from any slot machine with the Resort Wallet feature enabled. It can also be used at a casino cash desk.

Safe and convenient for use

The card is PIN-protected which is both safe and convenient for the user. The users can also transfer some of their funds to a digital wallet using a slot machine. They will receive a printed ticket from the machine which will reflect the balance. Ryan Reddy, Vice President of VLT, Systems and Payments Products at IGT commented on the offering and said,

“Our Resort Wallet solution ensures that our customers can experience the increased liquidity, player convenience, and enhanced safety that only cashless gaming can deliver.”

He said that the solution will be able to heighten the gameplay experience of the players and position them as technology leaders. Reddy also thanked the Nevada Gaming Control Board for approving a cashless product in the state.

The solution currently offers three variants of the cashless module. One is the cardless module, another is a smartphone payment module that uses the players’ Cashless Wagering Account. The final variation allows users to transfer funds from Cashless Wagering Account to external sources like debit cards, eWallets, and bank accounts.
