Updates to Sightline’s cashless solution include remote identity verification, enrollment for loyalty and payments, biometric authentication and a single digital wallet user experience.
Resorts World Las Vegas says Sightline’s update improves functionality by “dramatically decreasing the customer’s time to play.”
The operator of Nevada-based casino resorts says the ability for it to use Sightline’s remote identity verification was spearheaded by the payment provider's successful petition to the Nevada Gaming Commission to change the state’s gaming regulations.
Sightline Co-CEO Omer Sattar said: “We applaud Resorts World Las Vegas for being so forward-thinking, for working so diligently to create the best possible user experience, and for driving the whole industry forward.
“Groundbreaking technology builds on itself and this 2nd generation makes cashless gaming more accessible and a better overall experience for patrons. We look forward to working with Resorts World Las Vegas on future generations.”
Sightline’s technology is also fully available on the Resorts World Las Vegas Mobile+ app and features a cashless wallet that uses biometrics for enhanced security.
The operator says this tech has removed the need for players to go through a two-step process to fund their digital wallet and pay cashless.
Resorts World Las Vegas SVP of Casino Operations, Rick Hutchins, added: “We knew when we launched the Mobile+ and Play+ technology it would be an iterative process as we would continue to make enhancements and improvements along the way for our guests.
“Today, we’ve dramatically lessened the time and hassle for those who want to take advantage of cashless gaming and enroll in Genting Rewards when they visit our resort.
“I’m thrilled we’re at the forefront of simplifying the process for our guests by giving them more time to focus on what they came here to do: enjoy themselves.”
