Resorts World Vegas, Sightline Launch Next-Gen Cashless

Resorts World Vegas, Sightline Launch Next-Gen Cashless

Resorts World Las Vegas and Sightline have launched second-generation cashless technology at the multibillion-dollar complex. Resorts World, a Genting property, opened in June 2021, the first all-new resort to open on the Strip since the Cosmopolitan, more than a decade earlier.

The update includes remote identity verification and enrollment for loyalty and payments, biometric authentication and a single “digital wallet” user experience.

Before remote identity verification, in Nevada a patron could not use his or her account for cashless gaming until an ID was verified on property by a resort staff member. Resorts World Las Vegas is the first casino in Nevada to enable its guests to enroll, verify and fund from anywhere around the world in as little as a few minutes.

The ability for gaming operators to utilize remote identity verification was spearheaded by Sightline after it successfully petitioned the Nevada Gaming Commission to change the state’s gaming regulations.

Resorts World Las Vegas made history when it first opened in June 2021 as the Las Vegas Strip’s first casino to enable its guests to pay for anything onsite through their mobile device, including slot machines, table games, retail shops and entertainment.
