International Game Technology (IGT) has gained regulatory approval for its Resort Wallet cashless gaming technology for the state of Nevada.
The company’s entire cashless gaming solution is now approved for deployment throughout the state. This includes the option for one-step external funding via IGTPay on personal mobile devices.
Following the approval, casinos in Nevada can now leverage the IGT ADVANTAGE system and offer their players the option to fund their Cashless Wagering Accounts. This can be done directly from personal mobile devices, eliminating the need to use cash or visit an ATM or kiosk.
Players can utilise Resort Wallet and IGTPay to securely transfer funds to and from their Cashless Wagering Account from several external payment sources, including bank accounts, credit and debit cards. Such funds can then be transferred to and from a slot game, with players using a smartphone to initiate or conclude cashless slot play.
“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.
“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.”
IGT last week signed a sports betting agreement with Meruelo Gaming, with the former to provide the latter with its trading advisory services and PlaySports tech to power the SaharaBets app for Arizona.
