Everi has teamed-up with Penn National Gaming to install its digital CashClub Wallet technology at the newly opened Hollywood Casino York in Pennsylvania.
Intending to provide guests with a “secure, convenient cashless payment method on the casino floor,” the installation forms part of a wider ranging agreement between the two.
The technology is already in place at fellow PNG Keystone State venues Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course and the Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Pennsylvania, with further properties set to follow, pending appropriate regulatory approvals.
Everi’s mobile digital wallet will allow guests to deposit funds into their digital wallet any time or anywhere, including before arriving at the property or while at the property via a debit card, credit card or directly from their bank account.
Guests can then access these funds for use directly at the game, creating a fully cashless, contactless environment that leverages the guest’s mobile device.
On the casino floor, it will interface with the Foundation casino management system from Acres Manufacturing, which provides direct interaction with all slot machines and table games, while also providing instantaneous sharing of slot player data across Penn National’s casinos.
“The implementation of mychoice Wallet at our casino properties is an important step in our ongoing initiative to deploy a new generation of cashless, cardless and contactless technologies to improve guest service and operational efficiency,” said Todd George, executive vice president of operations at Penn National.
“By eliminating transactional friction, we can provide our guests with the convenience and experience they get across many other consumer-facing industries, which have already adopted similar funding technologies.
“Through its integration with our mychoice player loyalty program, mychoice Wallet will also help us further extend our connection with our guests.”
At the conclusion of game play, the wallet enables guests to move funds back into their digital wallet where they can be held for future use, or electronically sent back into a bank account.
Players can store multiple payment methods and move funds in and out of the casino. The Everi CashClub Wallet also allows the implementation of spending limit management.
“Penn National has deployed our financial technology solutions, including our financial access services solutions, for many years and we are delighted to expand our relationship by providing our CashClub Wallet technology to support the rollout of mychoice Wallet across their nationwide casino footprint,” explained Darren Simmons, executive vice president and fintech business leader for Everi.
“Penn National’s thoughtful approach and rapid rollout of this digital technology is an excellent example of the industry leadership position they are taking to provide their guests with more options and convenience, resulting in a more enjoyable gaming experience on their casino floors.
“mychoice Wallet will provide Penn National‘s guests with a new funding choice that gives them the same ability, comfort and convenience to load, retrieve and unload funds that they experience with other non-gaming, digital wallet applications.”
