Officials of Resorts World Catskills Casino and Resort in Monticello, New York, in a region that was one of the last in the U.S. to reopen after the Covid-19 shutdown, say the Resort Wallet cashless gaming solution, part of the IGT Advantage casino management system, has allowed them to accelerate the introduction of cashless gaming as a safety measure to minimize the risk of exposure to the virus.
“IGT’s Resort Wallet positions Resorts World Catskills as an innovative technology leader and keeps safety at the forefront of our operations,” said Bob DeSalvio, president of Genting Americas East.
“IGT’s Resort Wallet solution gives Resorts World Catskills the early-adopter advantage among commercial casinos in New York with the debut of cashless gaming,” said Ryan Reddy, IGT vice president, global systems and payments products. “Because Resorts World Catskills operates with the latest version of our IGT Advantage casino management system, a quick and simple remote installation has enabled the casino to benefit from the increased liquidity, efficiencies, player convenience and safety that are only possible with cashless gaming.”
The Resort Wallet is available as a turnkey add-on module for IGT Advantage customers who want to give players a cashless wagering option.
