The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) announced three PA casinos are experimenting with cashless gaming processes for customers and told PlayPennsylvania the benefits.

Casinos are one of the only establishments that are still strictly cash intensive. Customers must carry cash or access it inside the casino to play slot machines, table games or poker. To implement cashless options, PA casinos must get approval from the PGCB and institute a 30-day test trial.

Three PA casinos are experimenting with cashless ways to game.

Parx Casino Shippensburg made headlines when it opened in February as a second Parx facility. Now, the Shippensburg location is introducing a new cashless system for slot players.
