Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. has partnered with casino operator Boyd Gaming Corp. to launch Aristocrat's cashless wagering digital wallet technology at Boyd Gaming'sBlue Chip Casino Resort Spa in Michigan City, Indiana, according to a press release.
The "Resort Wallet" feature allows patrons to place cash on account at the cashier cage, then use their player loyalty card to instantly access those funds on the casino floor. The digital wallet eliminates the need to handle cash at slot machines or redeem tickets, creating a frictionless experience for the customer.
The Blue Chip launch will initially provide access to the wallet for slot machine players, allowing them to use their B Connected player loyalty card to place wagers and cash out credits. In future stages, access to the digital wallet will be expanded to table games, restaurants and other amenities at Blue Chip.
Aristocrat and Boyd Gaming intend to expand digital wallet technology to additional Boyd Gaming properties across the country. The two companies also plan to integrate the digital wallet into Boyd Gaming's B Connected Mobile app, creating a digital, touchless experience for Boyd Gaming customers.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many regulators have asked manufacturers to accelerate their cashless strategies.
Aristocrat's Oasis CX 360T solution, now installed at Boyd Gaming properties nationwide, combines casino management technology comprised of slot management, bonusing, digital, table management, single-card loyalty solutions, kiosks, mobile and a media management hub all together.
