Aristocrat and Boyd Gaming launch cashless table game trial in Nevada


Aristocrat Gaming, part of Aristocrat Leisure, has linked up with Boyd Gaming and Genesis Gaming to trial cashless table games in the state of Nevada.

Powered by Aristocrat’s digital wallet technology, Boyd Pay Wallet is being trialled at Boyd’s Aliante Casino Hotel and Spa in North Las Vegas.

Boyd Pay Wallet will be integrated into Boyd Gaming’s B Connected app, allowing players to use their mobile device to fund table game wagers without having to physically withdraw cash from an ATM or redeem tickets and chips at casino cages.

After logging into the B Connected app, players can use the Boyd Pay Wallet technology to buy into the game, using traditional casino chips for actual play. After players have finished, they have the choice of keeping their casino chips or transferring funds directly back to Boyd Pay Wallet.

The trial will run in partnership with Genesis and its Oasis 360 casino management system with TrackIT, allowing guests to bet using a Boyd Pay-generated QR code at the start of each session.

Blake Rampmaier, senior vice president and chief information officer for Boyd Gaming, said: “Boyd Pay is another example of our commitment to leverage technology to enhance the guest experience at our properties.

“Boyd Gaming continues to add industry-best mobile cashless wagering and contactless solutions in partnership with Aristocrat to drive mobile innovation in a secure and exciting environment for our patrons.”

Aristocrat Gaming’s executive vice president of customer experience solutions, Cath Burns, added: “Innovation and improving the guest journey is at the heart of everything we do, and our industry-leading mobile offerings are a testament to that. With this technology, we’re committed to deliver best-in-class experiences for both patrons and operators throughout the guest journey.”

The Nevada trial follows the introduction of cashless technology for slot players at Boyd’s properties in Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Ohio, as well as a cashless payment solution for non-gaming amenities in Nevada.
