Global Payments and JCM Announce Cashless Payments Collaboration

JCM Global and Global Payments Gaming Solutions Tuesday announced a collaboration creating a cashless solution workable for all casinos regardless of their CMS provider.

Global Payments’ VIP Solutions cashless gaming solution will use JCM’s FUZION system and iVIZION bill validator to allow casino patrons to fund play by way of a mobile app. The integration will enable casinos to avoid costly CMS upgrades, complex system integrations, and IP patent pool fees required by all other cashless solutions.

Casino patrons will be able to use mobile phones to fund slot machines and table games and make purchases at restaurants and bars. The cashless experience will extend across casino properties, with no system integrations required at any touchpoints.

“JCM Global is a 67-year innovator in automated transaction technologies with installations of more than 700,000 bill validators nationwide,” said Global Payments Gaming Solutions President Chris Justice in a statement. “By integrating our cashless solution and database of more than 3 million players with JCM Global’s technology, it creates a truly powerful combination for casino operators. Together, we offer state-of-the-art, highly secure technology that has perfected the cashless experience for players and operators alike.”

Global Payments Gaming’s cashless solution offers players a seamless cashless gaming experience, from enrollment to funding to game play to cash-out, and is the only solution enabling both rated and unrated play. VIP Mobility also is the only cashless solution that doesn’t require the creation of a wagering account, easing regulatory review and mitigating Tribal compact changes.

JCM’s FUZION system and iVIZION bill validator help casino operators deter cheating, prevent acceptance of fraudulent bills, increase up-time on slot machines, and save labor during routine and emergency drops. FUZION simplifies cash management, optimizes printer and bill validator management, and has several interfaces that use unique data managed by JCM.

“We designed iVIZION, GEN5, and FUZION to empower creativity that would help shape the future of gaming,” said JCM SVP of Sales, Marketing & Operations Dave Kubajak in a statement. “Global Payments has continued to expand their cash access solutions to provide an excellent omni-channel experience with their high-quality products. Now, this partnership between JCM and Global Payments takes full advantage of that forward-thinking technology, making cashless payments a great option to our customers.”

The fully integrated cashless solution will be on display at the NIGA Tradeshow, April 21-22, in Anaheim, California.
