International Game Technology Tuesday announced a multi-year, enterprise-wide agreement with Station Casinos. Per the agreement, IGT’s Resort Wallet and IGTPay cashless gaming modules of the IGT Advantage casino management system are now deployed at Station Casino’s six flagship Las Vegas properties via the STN Cash app.

“It’s exciting to see Station Casinos at the forefront of the on-premise cashless gaming revolution by powering its impressive STN Cash app with the Resort Wallet and IGTPay modules of the IGT Advantage casino management system,” said IGT Chief Operating Officer, Global Gaming Nick Khin in a statement. “In deploying IGT’s turnkey cashless solution and providing more ease to its customers, Station Casinos is positioned at the forefront of on-premise industry payment trends.”

The STN Cash app gives players a quick, convenient, and secure method for funding slot play from mobile phones. IGT’s Resort Wallet technology enables the creation of a PIN-protected cashless wagering account, while IGTPay is the payment gateway that allows Station Casinos’ Boarding Pass members to transfer funds from debit cards, credit cards, bank accounts, and e-wallets.

Funds in cashless wagering accounts can be loaded into slot machines as credits during play and are returned to the player’s account at the end of a session. Funds can then be cashed out or securely maintained in a STN Cash account until the next play session.

“Station Casinos continues to be the leader in guest experience providing our guests leading-edge technologies such as IGT’s Resort Wallet and IGTPay that drive slot play, distinguish our casinos and reward our loyal Boarding Pass members,” said Station Casinos, Senior Vice President of Innovation Tom Mikulich. “Our IGT-powered STN Cash app is deployed across our entire Nevada enterprise and has introduced efficiencies and player conveniences that support Station Casinos’ growth and profitability targets.”

Because Resort Wallet and IGTPay are IGT Advantage modules, players using the STN Cash app will no longer require a Boarding Pass card during slot play. Instead, they simply “tap in” with their smartphone to accumulate and redeem reward points during carded play sessions.

The STN Cash app will eventually be introduced at Barley’s Casino & Brewery and Wildfire Casinos in Las Vegas.
