After Oklahoma’s Indigo Sky Casino became the latest gaming facility to sign up, International Game Technology is continuing its cashless gaming roll-out across the United States.
The venue has signed a multi-year partnership with IGT for a gradual installation of the IGT Advantage casino management system’s resort wallet and IGTPay modules.
Indigo Sky Casino will provide one-step access to funds from external sources such as credit and debit cards, bank accounts, and eWallets by merging resort wallet technology with the IGTPay solution.
IGT’s Resort Wallet and IGTPay modules
Melanie Heskett, Indigo Sky Casino general manager said: “Enhancing Indigo Sky Casino’s IGT Advantage deployment with IGT’s Resort Wallet and IGTPay modules will truly differentiate our gaming experience in Oklahoma and give our guests access to the industry’s most user-friendly cashless gaming technology.
“As the demand for cashless and contactless payment technologies accelerates in nearly every sector, Indigo Sky Casino is pleased to be an early mover in this space by partnering with our long-time growth partner, IGT.”
In 2021, Indigo Sky Casino expects to launch IGT’s entire gaming solution, which will include a tech stack that allows for both “carded cashless” and “cardless cashless” gaming.
The former allows players to use their physical ‘Go Rewards’ loyalty card to transfer monies, fund play, cash out, and check account balances by inserting it into a slot machine.
Patrons of the venue will be able to utilise the property’s mobile app to conduct all payment-related tasks safely and securely in the cardless cashless model.
Senior vice president of global product management for VLT, poker, systems, and payments at IGT, Ryan Reddy said: “In deploying IGT’s resort wallet and IGTPay, Indigo Sky Casino will benefit from the many advantages of operating a cashless gaming ecosystem and its guests will enjoy added choice and convenience on the casino floor.
“Launching resort wallet and IGTPay in Oklahoma, one of the country’s premier tribal gaming markets, reflects IGT’s continued leadership in the digital payments space and the versatility of the IGT Advantage casino management system and modules.”
