It has been announced today that a new digital wallet that allows cashless payments for gambling has been launched by Boyd Gaming and Aristocrat Technologies.
This new revolutionary product, driven by Sightline Payments, can be linked to third party funding applications quickly and efficiently.
BoydPay has gone live initially at a number of properties, including the Blue Chip Casino Resort Spa in Michigan City, Indiana, Belterra Park in Cincinnati, Ohio, and an in field trial has begun at Aliante Casino + Hotel + Spa in North Las Vegas, Nevada.
Subject to approval from jurisdiction authorities, the new digital wallet will be rolled out to all of Boyd Gaming’s casino venues in the United States, allowing players to link their loyalty card to the wallet for use with games within each casino, such as slots.
Working alongside gaming giant Aristocrat, the company will look to roll out its digital wallet with the loyalty mobile application in order to create a cashless and contactless experience in gaming. In light of this, players at each casino will be able to use their smartphone to play casino games and cash out their winnings using the app, along with enjoying the venue’s amenities.
According to the Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer for Boyd Gaming Blake Rampmaier, this new digital wallet is all about enhancing the overall guest experience and shared some comments on the product launch:
Through our innovative partnership with Aristocrat, we will create a unique and seamless payment experience for Boyd Gaming customers, allowing them to use their smartphones to play casino games, cash out, and pay for restaurant meals, show tickets or hotel rooms.
By going cashless, our customers will be able to avoid the wait times and inconveniences associated with using cash and focus on enjoying their visit to our properties.
Working in partnership with Aristocrat, the Executive Vice President of Customer Experience Solutions for Aristocrat Cath Burns also shared comments on why the partnership has been made and what it aims to achieve:
BoydPay is the latest product of our partnership with Boyd and the foundation of a memorable customer journey.
We have the industry’s best people making the most innovative products that enhance the guest experience.
