The newly reopened Resorts World Catskills Casino and Resort in Monticello, New York, has confirmed this week the integration of International Game Technology’s Resort Wallet cashless solution.

The Resort Wallet gives Resorts World Catskills customers a contactless, safe, and convenient cashless gaming experience option. Players will use their physical Resorts World Catskills Players Club card to load cash into a secure digital wallet from either the casino cashier or any slot machine, and access those funds from any slot machine.

Bob DeSalvio, President of the venue’s parent company Genting Americas East, said: “Today’s casino guests are seeking a unique combination of gaming excitement, luxury, convenience, and safety. IGT’s Resort Wallet solution will help to ensure that Resorts World Catskills delivers every aspect of its brand promise.

“IGT’s Resort Wallet cashless gaming solution positions Resorts World Catskills as an innovative technology leader, and keeps safety at the forefront of our operations.”

Ryan Reddy, IGT’s Vice President, Global Systems and Payments Products, added: “IGT’s Resort Wallet solution gives Resorts World Catskills the early adopter advantage among commercial casinos in the state of New York with the debut of cashless gaming at their property.

“Because Resorts World Catskills operates with the latest version of our IGT Advantage casino management system, a quick and simple remote installation has enabled the casino to benefit from the increased liquidity, efficiencies, player convenience and safety that are only possible with cashless gaming.”

Part of the IGT Advantage systems Player Experience Product Suite, the Resort Wallet solution is available as a turnkey, add-on module for IGT Advantage casino management system customers who want to give players a cashless wagering option.

Using the Resort Wallet, players can benefit from the safety of minimizing cash handling and the convenience of accessing funds anytime. It also reduces line-ups at kiosks and the cashier to encourage social distancing.
