Mobile Strategy

The Slots Jackpot Accelerator is designed to address the additional regulatory reporting burden placed on operators with high jackpot volumes.

With the significant amount of manual effort, hard copy forms processing, and the monitoring/updating of many internal business systems required to complete a slots jackpot payout, the potential for human error in the manual collection of patron and forms data can lead to regulatory fines and patron frustration.

Resort Advantage saw a need to quickly connect the property’s floor staff with the exact information needed to be most efficient working with patrons during the jackpot payout process.  RA developed Slots Jackpot Accelerator (SJA), a mobile device app that allows floor attendants to securely and efficiently bring the entire jackpot payout process to winning patrons at the gaming machine.

SJA is designed to redefine how properties engage with their patrons, giving them control of business-critical jackpot processing activities to help improve patron relationships, floor attendant performance and overall profits.

SJA’s mobile approach to jackpot payouts expedites the four key phases of the process: jackpot notification, patron engagement, payment processing, and post-processing.  SJA automates the compliance workflow, so floor attendants can gather the required jackpot payout information according to the business rules of the property.

Using ID image capture, real-time SSN/OFAC/DML checking, electronic regulatory forms rendering, signature capture, and automated IRS forms, e-filing dramatically expedites the process and eliminates the majority of paperwork.

Additionally, SJA’s latest innovations include integration with

FutureLogic’s EGD TITO printers and Sightline Interactive’s property-branded prepaid loyalty bankcard platform, providing instant access to jackpot payout documents and IRS forms at the gaming machine, as well as immediate electronic payment of winnings loaded on the patron’s loyalty card.

Implementation of SJA, available on Android, iPad and Windows mobile devices, results in the routine enforcement and complete auditability of a property’s jackpot payout procedures and reporting requirements.
