NRT Technologies Inc. has acquired the gaming ATM assets of U.S. Bank National Association (USB), including some 1,500 high-volume casino ATMs and self-service devices that dispense more than $5 billion annually across nearly 300 gaming properties in the U.S.
NRT is a global technology leader of next-generation payment systems, specialized financial/marketing self-serve kiosks, and digital and mobile experiences for the gaming industry. Through this acquisition, NRT now supports processing on ATMs and TITO Redemption Units (TRUs) in casinos across the U.S. NRT is now the largest ATM processor in the North American casino market, providing services to more than 750 gaming clients, including the top 25 largest global gaming operators.
In partnership with Diebold Nixdorf, NRT will be making upgrades to the acquired ATM fleet with new state-of-the-art ATMs that will not only support traditional ATM and cash advance functions, but also provide mobile engagement through Sightline Play+ and cardless ATM features. NRT and Diebold Nixdorf have an existing partnership with the world’s largest mobility provider, Kony Inc., which will enable a unified and highly personalized mobile guest experience across NRT’s growing portfolio of gaming ATM and TRU devices.
As part of the transaction, NRT has secured an expanded vault cash facility ensuring high cash availability to meet the rigorous cash withdrawal demands of NRT’s gaming operator customers.
“Acquiring this ATM portfolio fits within our strategy of leading in both the cash and cashless payment verticals for casinos,” said John Dominelli, NRT founder and president. “As part of this transaction, we are pleased to welcome key members of the U.S. Bank team to the NRT family.”
