Scientific Games unveils contactless solutions to reimagine the casino floor

Scientific Games is rolling-out a suite of contactless gaming solutions which are designed to aid casino operators to keep players and team members safe while maintaining a fun atmosphere.

Aiming to facilitate a rapid response to develop solutions to support enhanced sanitation protocols and assist with social distancing measures in a post COVID-19 world, the company is aiming to help establishments “reimagine play” for guests.

Among the US gaming tech firm’s contactless solutions are the unified wallet cashless gaming experience, a social distancing module and automated game sanitisation.

“Scientific Games has always been committed to innovation, but it is now more critical than ever to develop solutions that help our partners address and adapt to the new normal,” noted Matt Wilson, executive vice president and gaming group chief executive

“Our suite of contactless gaming solutions enables our partners to deliver a new, yet fun and engaging gaming experience for their players all while keeping them safe. This advanced technology sets a new standard for the industry and is available for our partners now.”

Taking a mobile-first approach, Scientific Games’ unified wallet offers players the ability to instantly access funds to play slots and table games through an app on their mobile device.

The social distancing module provides three distinct features for operators, namely dynamic distancing, EGM scheduler and resort and game reserve. 

These features aim to provide further opportunities for casino operators to adhere to the necessary safety measures now required by public health and gaming officials.

Automated game sanitisation eliminates the manual task of searching for games that need to be sanitised on the casino floor by quickly identifying games that require such a task after active play. Operators can also schedule sanitisation at regular intervals.
