The global company specializing in the distribution, manufacturing and sales of gaming machines and solutions used within the gambling sector, International Game Technology (IGT), announced a new deal with the leading entertainment and gaming location in Rohnert Park, California, Graton Resort and Casino. The new deal, announced Monday, sees the casino resort benefit from IGT's leading cashless gaming solutions.
Per the new deal, two modules from IGT ADVANTAGE, IGTPay solution and the award-winning Resort Wallet, will be introduced for Graton Resort and Casino. Thanks to the multi-year agreement, the casino resort will benefit from the cashless gaming solutions that take the user experience to a new level.
Using the solutions, guests of the venue will have a convenient and secure method to gamble that is also cashless. Graton Resort and Casino currently has more than 3,000 slot machines and visitors of the venue will be able to leverage IGT's solutions to fund their play, a statement reveals.
The launch of IGTPay and Resort Wallet comes as no surprise, considering the solutions' innovative approach and popularity. In fact, back in 2021, IGTPay and Resort Wallet secured a "Product Innovation of the Year" award from the Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas. On the other hand, within the 2021 International Gaming Awards, IGT was named "Technology Provider of the Year," recognizing its leadership position within the gambling vertical.
Thanks to the new multi-year agreement and the solutions from IGT, Graton Rewards loyalty club members will be able to create a Cashless Wagering Account. Once the account is created, customers will be able to fund it from their mobile devices using different methods. "To apply available funds to a slot game session, a player simply taps the smartphone to the game's card reader and via Bluetooth technology, the player's balance and loyalty rewards instantly populate on the game's service screen via IGT's M5 technology," explained IGT.
Ryan Reddy, IGT's SVP Global Video Poker, VLT, Systems and Payment, spoke about the recent deal saying: "Cashless commerce is the way of the future across business sectors and we're finding that slot players who adopt IGT's cashless casino technologies are readily embracing it and reporting high satisfaction with the experience."
Finally, he pointed out: "We look forward to helping Graton Resort and Casino maximize player convenience and security, accelerate growth and differentiate the guest experience through IGT's Resort Wallet and IGTPay cashless gaming technologies."
Brian Green, Graton Resort and Casino's Vice President/Assistant General Manager, added that the casino resort is famous as a premium entertainment and gaming destination in Northern California. Moreover, he explained that Graton Resort and Casino is proud to offer innovative technologies that deliver engaging and convenient experiences for the guests.
In conclusion, Green said: "IGT's proven Resort Wallet and IGTPay cashless technologies will enable us to drive new operational efficiencies and optimize revenue, while offering our customers a future-forward mobile e-wallet option that comes with a variety of benefits."
