Acres introduces Cashless Casino, a new app that enables rapid implementation of cashless gaming technology
“The Foundation’s early deployments of cashless gaming have proven that cashless players are increasing their play and visits. As a result, casino operators are increasingly expressing a large-scale interest in deploying the gaming technology However, implementing cashless gaming is quickly becoming a burden, do-it-your project for operators, as they struggle with the limitations of legacy casino management system (“CMS”) technologies. decades-old solutions to integrate a payment processor and user interface while addressing dispute resolution and regulatory compliance,” said Noah Acres. “These issues have significantly slowed the industry’s adaptation to cashless gaming. Cashless Casino addresses this challenge by making deployment incredibly simple and intuitive, as it allows operators to focus on player education and the experience gaming entertainment. We can implement Cashless Casino within approximately 15 weeks of receiving an order from an operator.”
Cashless Casino works on any slot machine or table game, including those connected to casino management systems from Aristocrat, IGT, Konami and Light & Wonder. These legacy CMS solutions continue to consider game and loyalty data, while Foundation processes the entire stream of machine events in real time, delivering over a thousand times more data to the casino. . Over time, casinos can migrate all CMS functionality to Foundation and retire the old CMS without any disruption to their loyalty programs, reporting or analytics, saving millions of dollars per year in material and maintenance costs.
Rolling out Cashless Casino is simple, as casinos only need to choose a payment processor and provide a mobile app. The casino application becomes the user interface, ensuring that the brand is fully compatible with the rest of the operator’s options for players. Players who use Cashless Casino use the mobile app to virtually “cart” and start a listed gaming session. During gameplay, point balances accumulate in real time and players are encouraged to continue playing when a new status approaches. The payment processor of your choice ensures the free flow of player funds between their funding source and the app wallet. Behind the scenes, Foundation allows player funds, as well as accumulated points that can be converted into free play, to move between the app wallet and the game.
Casinos can select one or more payment providers, including Everi, Fabicash, Flexia, Koin, Sightline Payments, and Trustly. An interface to Marker Trax, a casino marker solution, is also included. Additionally, Cashless Casino meets all regulatory requirements by providing audit reports and dispute resolution tools and can act as a required system of record.
“Cashless Casino enables gaming operators to position themselves for an entirely cashless future in which casinos move away from physical player cards, kiosks and direct mail,” added Noah Acres. “These legacy technologies and practices are quickly being abandoned by other industries and by implementing Cashless Casino, operators can more easily interact with their customers on the mediums they prefer while benefiting from operational efficiencies.
“Improving loyalty engagement is the core value proposition of our Foundation technology,” concluded Noah Acres“and the integration of innovative player retention features into Cashless Casino is a key differentiator in the player experience. Cashless Casino enables casino operators to dramatically improve their connection and engagement with their players.”
