IGT to Trial Digital Wallet in Australia

IGT to Trial Digital Wallet in Australia

International Game Technology PLC is planning a trial of its Resort Wallet with IGTPay cashless gaming system at a New South Wales club, Club York in Sydney.

The trial is part of a “Regulatory Sandbox” to trial digital wallet products in a live venue, announced by the New South Wales government in May. IGT’s trial will offer four key innovations, including a digital loyalty card stored on the patron’s phone, a venue wallet which allows spending on non-gaming across the venue, allowing direct card deposit to the venue wallet, and EFT/POS funding (via a card) to a customer’s player account or TITO ticket.

Customers will need to supply proof of identity and link their digital wallet to an Australian bank account. However, data privacy will be a central theme of the trial.
