Aristocrat Gaming and Boyd Gaming have announced the completion of a successful table games field trial for the Boyd Pay Wallet, a cashless payment solution powered by the former’s digital wallet technology.
This represents the latest enhancement of the casino operator’s cashless solution, regarding which the two parties detailed an initial launch earlier this year.
The table games trial follows the previous introduction of cashless technology for slot players at Boyd Gaming properties in Nevada, Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Ohio, as well as a cashless payment solution for non-gaming amenities in Nevada.
“Innovation and improving the guest journey is at the heart of everything we do, and our industry-leading mobile offerings are a testament to that,” said Cath Burns, executive cice president of customer experience solutions for Aristocrat Gaming.
“With this technology, we’re committed to deliver best-in-class experiences for both patrons and operators throughout the guest journey.”
The Boyd Pay Wallet field trial is being conducted at Boyd Gaming’s Aliante Casino Hotel and Spa in North Las Vegas, Nevada, in partnership with Genesis Gaming.
The solution will be integrated into Boyd Gaming’s B Connected app, allowing players to use their mobile device to fund table game wagers without withdrawing cash from an ATM or redeeming tickets and chips at the cage.
After securely logging into the app, a table game player can use the Boyd Pay Wallet tech to buy into the game, using traditional casino chips. At the conclusion of play, the player can keep the casino chips or transfer funds directly back to the cashless Boyd Pay wallet, without ever visiting the cage.
Blake Rampmaier, senior vice president and chief information officer for Boyd Gaming, said, “Boyd Pay is another example of our commitment to leverage technology to enhance the guest experience at our properties.
“Boyd Gaming continues to add industry-best mobile cashless wagering and contactless solutions in partnership with Aristocrat to drive mobile innovation in a secure and exciting environment for our patrons.”
