Digital payments provider Okto has teamed-up with Jackpot Systems in Spain, in a move which the former says will “introduce a new era of cashless gaming” across the country’s casinos and gaming halls.

The partnership will enable users to pay and play on a growing number of electronic gaming machines connected to Jackpot Systems, across more than 300 venues, via the Okto.Wallet.

Okto’s mobile-first, software-driven solution is integrated with Jackpot Systems’ casino management system, and is operational, utilising the group’s existing installed solutions.

Nacho Frade, Country Manager of Spain at Okto, commented: “Adapting to mobile payment technology is extremely valuable for any business, including gaming. Gaming industry always adopt solutions that bring benefits to both users and operators alike, and as the industry rang a bell for cashless payment options, the Spanish market should follow suit.

“Through our collaboration with Jackpot Systems, casinos and gaming halls are now able to meet the transactional experience that today’s user demands via our Okto.Wallet turn-key solution for the Spanish market. 

“A solution that offers both convenience and ease of use as well as an enhanced payment journey to users, while also meeting operators demand for secure, cost-effective and cashless payment solutions is a perfect blend, and this is why we designed our solution.”

As a result of the integration, players can load credits directly from the Okto mobile wallet to EGMs, as well as collect their winnings at the end of the play session, straight into the Okto.Wallet in real-time, without the use of any other money-in or cash-out system.

Alejandro Jiménez, CEO of Jackpot Systems, added: “I believe that our alliance with Okto represents a new technological achievement for the face-to-face gaming industry in Spain of which we are especially proud.

“We are thus raising communication with gaming machines to a new level, for the benefit of operators and users, with hardly any additional hardware. We are pleased to team up with Okto on an exciting project like this one that will quickly catch on due to its ease of use, security and strong technology foundation.”
