Casino and lottery provider, Scientific Games, which develops a range of online and offline gaming products, has announced that it has launched a new Covid-19 gaming solution that will allow casinos to re-open their doors more safely amid the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.
Casinos in major gambling hot spots, such as the UK, Las Vegas, Macau and beyond are looking to re-open their doors over the next three months as the recovery phase from the pandemic begins.
The new gaming solutions from Scientific Games will allow managers and executives to implement safer gambling measures on casino floors to encourage customers and provide peace of mind at these unprecedented times.
Contactless gaming solutions will undoubtedly become the norm for the foreseeable future and the team at Scientific Games have been developing an innovative range of products that will help both casino staff members and players.
The first solution from Scientific Games is a Unified Wallet that customers can use to access their funds for use on slot machines and table games. The solution works using a mobile application, which players can download and use to bet within the casino property without the need to handle physical cash or redeem tokens and chips from the casino floor cashier.
The second solution that the revolutionary gaming firm has developed is a specialised Social Distancing Module containing a numbers of features for casino operators, such as:
- Dynamic Distancing: a module that, when activated via card, disables all other games nearby within a designated radius of the game in play, such as 2 metres or 6 foot.
- EGM Scheduler: a remote module that casino operator management can utilise to enable or disable games on the casino floor.
- Game Reserve: a reservation module that players can use to reserve their favourite game during the time inside the casino property.
Scientific Games Executive Vice President Matt Wilson commented on the launch of Covid-19 solutions:
“Scientific Games has always been committed to innovation, but it is now more critical than ever to develop solutions that help our partners address and adapt to the new normal. Our suite of contactless gaming solutions enables our partners to deliver a new, yet fun and engaging gaming experience for their players all while keeping them safe. This advanced technology sets a new standard for the industry and is available for our partners now.”
