International Game Technology PLC (IGT) has announced it has completed the final stages of regulatory approval in Nevada for the Resort Wallet module of its IGT ADVANTAGE casino management system.
The firm’s entire cashless gaming solution, which includes the option for one-step external funding via IGTPay on personal mobile devices, is now approved for deployment across the Silver State.
Ryan Reddy, IGT SVP Global PM VLT, Systems, Payments & Poker, commented: “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.
“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.”
Casinos in Nevada with the IGT ADVANTAGE system can now offer their players the option to fund their cashless wagering accounts directly from their mobile devices, meaning there’s no need to handle cash or visit a casino cage, ATM or kiosk.
With Resort Wallet and IGTPay, players can securely transfer funds to and from their PIN-protected cashless wagering account from several external payment sources such as bank accounts, credit and debit cards or Sightline Play+ prepaid accounts. Funds can then be seamlessly transferred to and from a slot game via a smartphone.
Earlier this month, IGT signed a strategic sports betting agreement with Meruelo Gaming LLC.
