Okto has become the first supplier in Spain to be licenced to accept digital payments through its cashless mobile wallet, thanks to a collaboration with Jackpot Systems.
The Okto.Wallet will be incorporated directly into gaming machines that are connected to Jackpot Systems’ casino management system, with operators in Murcia and Galicia set to be the first to implement the cashless payment mechanism on their floors.
Digital system for land based gaming
Jackpot Systems’ CEO, Alejandro Jimenez said: “These approvals validate and authorise, for the first time in land based gaming in Spain, a digital system without cash and without any other physical support than the user’s mobile phone, and this is a great achievement in the sector that makes all of us who have been proud endeavoured to achieve it.
“Galicia and Murcia are the first communities to benefit from this solution, but the others will soon arrive and it can be used in the rest of Spain. With this, we enrich our already powerful management and control system and advance in the complete digitisation of gaming companies, which are the great beneficiaries of these technological advances.”
Improve customer engagement and footfall
Operators of arcades who use the Jackpot Systems CMS can now implement a mobile-first, cashless, software-driven solution that has been intended to improve customer engagement and footfall.
Before the end of the year, Okto and Jackpot Systems believe they will make their combined product available to all Spanish-speaking areas.
Nacho Frade, Okto’s country manager for Spain, added: “We are extremely proud to be now ready to offer our powerful cashless solution on gaming machines in Spain, one of the biggest regulated markets in Europe.
“Our partnership with Jackpot Systems is entirely aligned with our operators’ partners quest for digitalisation, and we are now able to help them with the transition to cashless operations.
“The driver is always the same – the ability to provide safe, socially responsible and fast transactions to their users, but also to attract younger demographics, reduce cost and risk of cash, and that is what we can now deliver.”
