LAS VEGAS – (October 4, 2021) Sightline Payments LLC and IGT, a subsidiary of International Game Technology PLC (NYSE: IGT), today announced a partnership to deliver cashless gaming solutions through Sightline’s award-winning digital commerce platform Play+ and IGT’s IGTPay™ full-service funding solution, Resort Wallet™ cashless solution and PlaySports sports betting platform.
Play+ has been added as a funding method into IGT’s land based cashless wagering solution of IGTPay and Resort Wallet. By adding Play+ into IGTPay, players can fund their Resort Wallet accounts via Play+ and then use those funds for gaming and entertainment at casino properties. Consumers have come to expect the convenience of cashless payment options in their everyday lives, and this partnership will enable operators to provide a convenient, cost-effective, and safer alternative to paying with cash.
“Our technology enhances the gaming experience for both players and operators and working in tandem with IGT’s complementary suite of products will help us transform even more traditional casino floors into fully cashless ecosystems,” said Sightline Co-CEO Joe Pappano. “This partnership will provide players with the greatest variety of funding and withdrawal options while driving increased engagement and loyalty through a seamless digital payments ecosystem.”
“Collaborating with Sightline’s complementary technology will enable the gaming floors powered by the IGT ADVANTAGE system with the IGTPay and Resort Wallet solutions to provide an unparalleled, cashless gaming experience by offering Play+ as a funding method for players,” said Ryan Reddy, IGT Senior Vice President VLT, Systems and Payments. “The demand for cashless gaming solutions is at an all-time high and increasing rapidly, so this partnership will help operators give their patrons the convenience they’re looking for in a safe, secure, and seamless manner.”
The digital options made available by this partnership will empower customers with robust tools to self-monitor and govern their own spending and gaming behavior. Guests can track spending, set daily or hourly spending limits, and more, while casinos will have increased visibility and tools to ensure that guests are gaming responsibly.
Both Sightline and IGT will be exhibiting at the Global Gaming Expo 2021 in Las Vegas from October 4-7. To learn more about this partnership, stop by Sightline’s booth 4353 and IGT’s booth 3659.
