International Game Technology PLC (“IGT”) (NYSE: IGT) today announced that its award-winning Resort Wallet and IGTPay cashless gaming modules of the IGT ADVANTAGE™ casino management system are deployed at Station Casinos’ six flagship Las Vegas properties via the STN Cash app, making Las Vegas the epicenter of the cashless gaming revolution. Via a multi-year, enterprise-wide agreement, IGT and Station Casinos have partnered on the delivery of a user-friendly, intuitive and play-driving on-premise cashless gaming solution.
“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 Tom Mikulich, Station Casinos, Senior Vice President of Innovation. “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.”
“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 Nick Khin, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Global Gaming. “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.”
Available for download in the Apple App and Google Play stores, the STN Cash app gives players a quick, convenient and secure method for funding slot play, straight from a personal mobile phone. IGT’s Resort Wallet technology enables the creation of a PIN-protected Cashless Wagering Account, while IGTPay is the payment gateway that enables Station Casinos’ Boarding Pass members to transfer funds from debit cards, credit cards, bank accounts and ewallets. Funds in the Cashless Wagering Account can be loaded into the slot machine as credits during play, and are returned to the account at the end of the player’s session. The funds can then be cashed out or are then securely maintained in the STN Cash account until the next play session.
Because Resort Wallet and IGTPay are modules of the IGT ADVANTAGE casino management system, players using the STN Cash app will no longer require a physical Boarding Pass card during slot play, instead they simply “tap in” with their smart phone and they will still accumulate and redeem reward points during carded play sessions. The STN Cash app will be introduced at Barley’s Casino & Brewery and Wildfire Casinos throughout Las Vegas in the future.
IGT’s Resort Wallet and IGTPay were named “Product Innovation of the Year” in the 2021 Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas and the Company was name “Technology Provider of the Year” in the 2021 International Gaming Awards for its leadership as a systems provider.
