Everi to Launch Cashless Payment Technology in Florida

Everi to Launch Cashless Payment Technology in Florida

Gaming supplier Everi Holdings Inc., in conjunction with the Seminole Tribe of Florida, will launch its WildCard Wallet across casinos operated by Seminole Gaming.

A digital wallet powered by Everi’s CashClub Wallet solution, WildCard Wallet is a mobile wallet solution that provides cashless, touchless funding of electronic game play throughout the casino floor. The WildCard Wallet is currently live for funding electronic game play, and is also enabled for food and beverage and retail outlet purchases at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood and Seminole Classic Casino.

After the initial launch at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood and Seminole Classic Casino, a rollout to other Seminole gaming locations, including Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa, will be fully completed in the first quarter of 2021.

CashClub Wallet provides casino operators and their customers with a flexible, cost-effective, secure payment method, on and off the casino floor. Creating a contactless environment that provides an alternative to cash, the CashClub Wallet application gives Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood and Seminole Classic Casino patrons the ability to deposit funds into their digital wallet at their convenience—on-site or away from the resort—via a bank card.

Patrons can then access these funds for use directly at retail locations and at the game, enabling the casino to offer a fully cashless solution and the ability for patrons to manage spend limits in support of responsible gaming.

This mobile wallet serves as the catalyst for Everi’s transformation of gaming-patron funding of gaming experiences, either on-premise or online. Everi’s launch of the new CashClub Wallet is the first step in its efforts to provide omni-channel experiences across the casino floor and across the gaming sector.

CashClub Wallet is the latest example of cashless, contactless solutions gaining traction as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, as patrons seek to guard against the spread of the virus by avoiding cash handling.
