The software is built on more than 25 years of central system experience and offers stable, secure command and control capabilities.

Aristocrat Technologies, Inc. announced today it has partnered with leading casino operator Boyd Gaming Corporation to launch Aristocrat's cashless wagering digital wallet technology at Boyd Gaming's Blue Chip Casino Resort Spa in Michigan City, Indiana.

Oct. 26, 2020 -- This new innovation is the cornerstone of a new "Resort Wallet" feature in which patrons can place cash on account at the cashier cage, then use their player loyalty card to instantly access those funds on the casino floor. The digital wallet eliminates the need to handle cash at slot machines or redeem tickets, creating a frictionless experience for the customer.

The Blue Chip launch will initially provide access to the wallet for slot machine players, allowing them to use their B Connected player loyalty card to place wagers and cash out credits. In future stages, access to the digital wallet will be expanded to table games, restaurants, and other amenities at Blue Chip.

Based on the success of the Blue Chip launch, and pending regulatory approvals, Aristocrat and Boyd Gaming intend to expand digital wallet technology to additional Boyd Gaming properties across the country. The two companies also plan to integrate the digital wallet into Boyd Gaming's B Connected Mobile app, creating a truly digital, touchless experience for Boyd Gaming customers.

"Building on our strategic partnership with Aristocrat, Boyd Gaming continues to add best-in-class mobile cashless wagering and contactless solutions that will greatly enhance the patron experience at our properties," said Blake Rampmaier, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer of Boyd Gaming. "As previously announced, we will continue to leverage our partnership with Aristocrat to drive mobile innovation in a secure and exciting environment for our patrons."

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many regulators have asked manufacturers to accelerate their cashless strategies. Aristocrat believes the time is now for cashless gaming and has invested heavily in expanding digital and mobile strategies that will assist in transforming the casino floor to be a more robust patron experience while supporting responsible gaming initiatives.

"We are thrilled to partner with Boyd to bring this new and exciting solution to their patrons," said Cath Burns, Executive Vice President of Customer Experience Solutions for Aristocrat. "We are passionate about the patron engagement and that Boyd continues to roll out Aristocrat's suite of innovative CX mobile solutions to aid in the transformation of the patron and industry experience."

Aristocrat's Oasis CX 360TM solution, now installed at Boyd Gaming properties nationwide, is one of the most widely used casino management systems. Oasis combines an award-winning portfolio of casino management technology comprised of slot management, bonusing, digital, table management, single-card loyalty solutions, kiosks, mobile and a media management hub.

Last year, the South African Carnival City Casino introduced NOVOMATIC’s latest products THUNDER CASH™ Link and CASH CONNECTION™ Charming Lady™ to its gaming floor – games which have become absolute favourites with the guests.

It’s been one year since NOVOMATIC’s THUNDER CASH™ Link and CASH CONNECTION™ Charming Lady™ launched in the PANTHERA™ 2.27 cabinet at one of South Africa’s major casinos near Johannesburg. Both Linked Progressives have since impressed at Sun International’s Carnival City Casino with excellent performance, way above floor average, and continue to thrill players with more than R2 million Rand of jackpot pay-outs to date. All this, in spite of COVID-19 restrictions and safeguarding measures that have been significantly reducing the number of active player positions on the casino floor during the past couple of months.

True to its name, the THUNDER CASH™ Link made a thundering impact at the casino. Players appreciate the choice of four thrilling titles featuring vivid graphics, player-friendly multidenomination and the most exciting Coin-Re-spin Feature which encourages them to collect more and more coins with chances to win the top Progressive prize. Likewise, the CASH CONNECTION™ Charming Lady™ has become a special darling with casino guests, thrilling them with pretty prizes in pink. The Lock & Spin feature is an absolute player highlight with instant prizes, bonuses and more and more chances for the big jackpots.

Deon Valkenborgh, Sales & Marketing Manager NOVOMATIC AFRICA, says: “Ever since the introduction of the two new Progressives to the gaming floor, both have consistently resided among the top-earning slots at Carnival City for the past year.”

Carnival City Slots Manager Karthy Padayachee adds: “Paying out more than R2 million Rand in Progressive Jackpots, these two themes are still unequivocally the most favourite machines being played at Carnival City. The CASH CONNECTION™ and THUNDER CASH™ themes are continuously providing players with endless excitement and entertainment.”

LONDON, Oct. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology PLC ("IGT") (NYSE: IGT) announced today that it successfully launched the PeakSlant32™ cabinet, the first slot cabinet in North America to feature three 32-inch displays. Guests of Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn. were the first in the world to enjoy exciting IGT slot games on more than 20 of the eye-catching PeakSlant32 cabinets.

IGT PeakSlant32

This latest addition to IGT's high-performance Peak hardware line, the PeakSlant32 is the Company's first cabinet to feature three seamlessly integrated gameplay displays. Content on each of the PeakSlant32's 32-inch, high-definition displays flows through all three monitors, creating an immersive player experience and a compelling showcase for IGT's proven game content. For IGT ADVANTAGE® customers, the PeakSlant32 cabinet can be equipped with Bluetooth technology to enable operators to integrate with IGT's cashless gaming systems technology, Resort Wallet™. The PeakSlant32 cabinet also includes IGT's most advanced lighting and audio technology and an innovative Dynamic Player Panel that includes a 13.3-inch multi-touch display, an inductive wireless charging pad, and a USB charging port for player convenience.

The PeakSlant32 cabinet is backed by a vast library of regionally attuned IGT games. In the U.S., the cabinet launched with player-tested titles Wu Dragon™, Wolf Run® Gold, Lucky Wealth Cat™ and the exciting link product, Treasure Box™.

"As an extension of Mohegan Sun's commitment to providing our guests with the most exceptional gaming experiences, we are excited to introduce IGT's PeakSlant32 cabinet and the Wu Dragon, Lucky Wealth Cat and Treasure Box games to our casino floor," said Jeff Hamilton, Mohegan Sun President & General Manager. "The cabinet's triple-screen design and pristine presentation make it a standout in our casino. We also value the versatility of the PeakSlant32's top display as it provides us the option to leverage it for promotional Momentum Rewards messaging or for vibrant game content."

"IGT's PeakSlant32 was thoughtfully engineered and artfully designed to ensure that it meets the needs of our global customers and their players, and matches the exceptional performance of the IGT core video slots content that it supports," said Nick Khin, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Gaming. "The PeakSlant32 is a versatile, slant cabinet that our customers can deploy with confidence, feature in a variety of configurations and leverage to truly differentiate their casino floors."

In markets outside the U.S., IGT will introduce the PeakSlant32 with proven, market-attuned content such as the USwitch™ multi-game bundle for operators in Eastern Europe and a range of multi-level progressive games for operators in other jurisdictions around the world. The PeakSlant32 can be deployed in a variety of configurations that accommodate social distancing.

The PeakSlant32 cabinet is IGT's third Peak-series hardware to hit casino floors in 2020. In May, casinos throughout the U.S. welcomed back players with IGT's PeakBarTop™ cabinet and in July, a Las Vegas casino became the first venue in the world to feature the PeakSlant49™ cabinet.
