Golden Entertainment to Launch Cashless Gaming

Casino and route operator Golden Entertainment has partnered with Marker Trax to begin rolling out the Marker Trax “cashless marker” solution to its Las Vegas casinos and taverns.

Branded “Quick Play,” the cashless option will debut at Arizona Charlie’s Decatur, and will roll out at Golden Entertainment’s other casinos and taverns soon thereafter. Players will be able to use Quick Play to easily access cash advances electronically.

Quick Play is powered by Marker Trax technology, which interfaces with Konami Gaming’s Synkros casino management system to seamlessly issue, record, manage and track players’ cashless advances and electronic balances.

“Marker Trax and Konami have created pioneering technology that is bringing our exclusive Quick Play program to market,” said Steve

Arcana, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Golden Entertainment. “Quick Play will improve the player experience by allowing our casinos and taverns to issue cashless advances quickly and conveniently.”

Guests will be able to sign up for Quick Play either online or through an app and access their advance balance from any gaming device at Golden’s properties. The advance will then be available as players play different machines through Golden Entertainment’s loyalty program, True Rewards.

True Rewards allows players to earn and redeem points at 140-plus locations. Current members can sign up for Quick Play using their True Rewards account and new members can sign up at any Golden Entertainment casino or PT’s Tavern.
