On October 4, Sightline Payments LLC and IGT, a subsidiary of International Game Technology, announced a partnership to deliver cashless gaming solutions through Sightline’s award-winning digital commerce platform Play+ and IGT’s IGTPay full-service funding solution, Resort Wallet, and PlaySports sports betting platform.
Play+ has been added as a funding method into IGT’s land-based cashless wagering solution of IGTPay and Resort Wallet. By adding Play+ into IGTPay, players can fund their Resort Wallet accounts via Play+ and then use those funds for gaming and entertainment at casino properties. Consumers have come to expect the convenience of cashless payment options in their everyday lives, and this partnership will enable operators to provide a convenient, cost-effective and safer alternative to paying with cash.
“Our technology enhances the gaming experience for both players and operators, and working in tandem with IGT’s complementary suite of products will help us transform even more traditional casino floors into fully cashless ecosystems,” said Sightline Co-CEO Joe Pappano. “This partnership will provide players with the greatest variety of funding and withdrawal options while driving increased engagement and loyalty through a seamless digital payments ecosystem.”
The digital options made available by this partnership will empower customers with robust tools to self-monitor and govern their own spending and gaming behavior. Guests can track spending, set daily or hourly spending limits, and more, while casinos will have increased visibility and tools to ensure that guests are gaming responsibly.
Sightline has also partnered with Mastercard to launch the Play+ Mastercard, which players can load for use in their non-gaming activities, sports betting, online gaming, and casino wagering accounts.
