AGS and NexGen Technologies have collaborated to implement 40 of the latter’s Fast Cash mobile chip devices at Palm Springs, California’s Morongo Casino Resort & Spa.
The Las Vegas-based firm will distribute the Fast Cash solution, which aims to provide a quick and easy way for players to buy chips without having to touch cash or visit an ATM, to its customers as part of its suite of table games and table products.
“We are thrilled to be in partnership with AGS on placing Fast Cash, the right solution for the right time,” explained David Balmer, NexGen Technology’s president and chief operating officer.
“It’s convenient for players, allowing uninterrupted gameplay while reducing the risk of contact with bacteria and viruses. And it’s easy for casino operators to implement, with no connectivity to a gaming system required.”
John Hemberger, AGS senior vice president of table products, added: “It’s been exciting to work with NexGen on placing Fast Cash at Morongo Casino.
“By providing convenience for the player and ease of installation, we are confident that demand for Fast Cash will increase as casinos seek to add more cashless, contactless solutions.”
Registration or enrollment isn’t necessary to purchase chips via the Fast Cash solution, with players simply needing to insert a debit card into the unit to commence a transaction. An integrated printer provides player and dealer receipts.
“Fast Cash offers our players the convenience of being able to quickly buy chips without having to leave a table game to walk to the cage, an ATM, or one of our kiosks,” Richard St jean, Morongo Casino chief operating officer, said of the deployment of the solution at the venue.
“During the Fast Cash trials, our players clearly appreciated the simplicity and speed of the system, which aligns with Morongo’s history of employing state-of-the-art technology to enhance our gaming experience.”
