The partnership extends Sightline’s Play+ integrated payment solution with Aristocrat’s Oasis 360 cashless wagering account to enable casino operators new capabilities including digital mobile payment and contactless wallet options for their guests.
Sightline and Aristocrat initially launched these new capabilities at several Boyd Gaming properties including Indiana, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Ohio with more planned through BoydPay, which enables guests to use their smartphones to seamlessly fund their gaming and pay for amenities throughout the properties.

Additional property launches combining Sightline’s Play+ solution and Aristocrat’s Oasis 360 casino management system are in development.

This partnership with Aristocrat will enable players across North America to seamlessly access cashless gaming on a scale that the industry has not seen before.”
