IGT Extends Cashless Options by Partnering with Global Payments
February 17, 2021
International Game Technology has announced it has extended its agreement with supplier Global Payments Gaming Solutions to extend its cashless offerings to IGT Pay customers.
The new minimum five-year partnership with Global Payments will now provide a range of cashless funding solutions across IGT’s portfolio of products. IGTPay will allow patrons to transfer funds from registered bank accounts to IGT’s Resort Wallet Cashless Wagering Accounts.
IGTPay is a casino-floor solution that allows consumers to make seamless digital payments without the need to touch or handle money themselves, with the aim of also adding transparency and comfort to the experience.
An IGT release notes that once a player registers with Global Payments’ VIP Preferred service via IGTPay, they can transfer funds digitally between their bank account and Cashless Wagering Account in a single step, without having to enter their information for each transaction.
"Our solutions drive industry-leading gaming experiences," said Christopher Justice, president, Global Payments Gaming Solutions. "This agreement enables IGT to access our VIP Preferred network, the industry’s premier way to provide gaming patrons easy and convenient access to funding via bank accounts, providing a seamless and frictionless way to access cash for gaming. More than 3.5 million patrons rely on Global Payments’ VIP Preferred for simple, secure, and responsible play."
"Players are more likely to embrace cashless technology when the experience is simple, convenient, and offers a wide range of funding sources, including direct, secure access to their bank accounts," said Ryan Reddy, IGT Vice President, VLT, Systems and Payments Products. "As cashless adoption continues to grow in the gaming industry, we’re proud to offer Global Payments’ trusted and proven service to our customers and their patrons as an integrated feature of our proprietary IGTPay funding gateway."
