ristocrat Gaming and Boyd Gaming announced Wednesday the successful launch of Boyd Pay Wallet in Nevada, a cashless payment solution for table games powered by Aristocrat’s digital wallet technology. The field trial is the latest enhancement to Boyd Pay, Boyd Gaming’s cashless solution.
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.
Boyd's Aliante Casino Hotel & Spa
Boyd Pay Wallet 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 logging into the B Connected app, a table game player can use the Boyd Pay Wallet technology to buy into the game, using traditional casino chips to play the game. At the end of the round, the player can keep the casino chips or transfer funds directly back to the cashless Boyd Pay wallet, without ever visiting the cage.
Boyd's B Connected app
Casino management system, Oasis 360 with TrackIT, powered by Genesis, allows guests to wager using Boyd Pay-generated QR code at the start of the session. It also allows guest redemption using Boyd Pay Wallet, reducing friction. With the seamless integration of TrackIT with Boyd Connect (Boyd's digital player club card), B Connected, and Boyd Pay, the operator gains visibility into player's activity, reduces costs, and reduces risk, while supporting responsible gaming.
In an official press release, Cath Burns, Executive Vice President of Customer Experience Solutions for Aristocrat Gaming said: "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. With this technology, we're committed to deliver best-in-class experiences for both patrons and operators throughout the guest journey."
Blake Rampmaier, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer for Boyd Gaming, added: "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."
