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.”
