International Game Technology announced Tuesday that its Resort Wallet and IGTPay modules of the IGT ADVANTAGE casino management system were awarded “Product Innovation of the Year” during the 2021 Global Gaming Awards, Las Vegas, a program that is held yearly in conjunction with the G2E expo.
This award comes at the heels of last month’s recognition in the International Gaming Awards (IGA), when the company won in the “Technology Provider of the Year” category for the same two products.
Both IGT’s Resort Wallet and IGTPay have been designed to make “going cashless” simple for operators and players. As modules of the IGT ADVANTAGE casino management system, Resort Wallet enables operators to offer "carded cashless" or "cardless cashless" gaming, and in combination with IGTPay, provide players access to external funding sources such as bank and debit cards and e-wallets.
As a fully integrated cashless solution, Resort Wallet with IGTPay enables players to transfer funds to and from their PIN-protected Cashless Wagering Account to various casino games and personal funding sources in a single secure cashless ecosystem.
Renato Ascoli, IGT CEO Global Gaming, spoke in an official press release about this award and said: "IGT winning 'Product Innovation of the Year' in the Global Gaming Awards is an excellent start to our G2E 2021 and a reflection of the market relevance and vast potential of our Resort Wallet and IGTPay cashless gaming technologies. The Global Gaming Awards Las Vegas is among the most lauded gaming industry awards programs and we're pleased that our transformative Resort Wallet and IGTPay solutions stood apart for their innovation and the many benefits that they deliver to our customers and their players."
