International Game Technology announced that its Cardless Connect technology will be launched at several Station Casinos properties in Las Vegas by the end of the year.

Now deployed at a single Station Casinos property for testing, IGT’s Cardless Connect technology enables players to participate in the My Rewards Boarding Pass loyalty program by simply tapping their smartphones on a slot machine card reader. Based upon the initial success of the Cardless Connect technology, Station Casinos plans to implement it at two more locations in Las Vegas later this year with the remaining properties to follow shortly after.

“We are committed to continuously delivering new benefits to our My Rewards Boarding Pass that bring value and convenience to our new and existing members,” said Staci Alonso, Station Casinos executive vice president and chief marketing & innovation officer. “IGT’s Cardless Connect technology adds meaningful value to the STN mobile app by allowing guests to use their phone to card in at their favorite slot game if they prefer a digital experience.”

To use Cardless Connect technology at featured Station Casinos properties, players can simply download the STN app from the App Store or Google Play Store, sign in and tap their phones on the card reader to “card in” to a slot machine. The phone will simply connect the player just as a physical loyalty card would so the player can experience all of the benefits of the loyalty program.
