Sightline Payments and IGT have announced a partnership to deliver cashless gaming via Sightline’s digital-commerce platform Play+ and IGT’s IGTPay Resort Wallet and PlaySports sports betting platform.
Play+ has been added as a method of funding IGT’s cashless systems. By adding Play+ into IGTPay, players can fund their Resort Wallet accounts via Play+ and use those funds for gaming and entertainment at casino properties.
Consumers have come to expect the convenience of cashless payment options in their everyday lives. This partnership will enable operators to provide a convenient, cost-effective, and safer alternative to paying with cash, company executives said.
“The demand for cashless gaming solutions is at an all-time high and increasing rapidly, so this partnership will help operators give their patrons the convenience they’re looking for in a safe, secure, and seamless manner,” said Ryan Reddy, IGT Senior Vice President VLT, Systems and Payments.
“Our technology enhances the gaming experience for both players and operators and working in tandem with IGT’s complementary suite of products will help us transform even more traditional casino floors into fully cashless ecosystems,” said Sightline Co-CEO Joe Pappano. “This partnership will provide players with the greatest variety of funding and withdrawal options while driving increased engagement and loyalty through a seamless digital payments ecosystem.”
The digital options made available by this partnership will empower customers with tools to self-monitor and govern their spending and gaming behavior, executives said. Guests can track spending, set daily or hourly limits, and more, while casinos will have increased visibility and tools to ensure that guests are gaming responsibly.
Both Sightline and IGT are exhibiting at the Global Gaming Expo.
