NRT, an industry leader in global gaming technologies, is launching its real-time funding and disbursements solution, smartSEND, at Resorts World Las Vegas. Developed in strategic collaboration with Apt Pay Inc., this innovation sets a new benchmark for customer-centric innovation by offering instantaneous debit-based funding and payouts for both land-based and online casino platforms.
The gaming industry has faced numerous challenges when it comes to modernizing payments. Amidst a rapidly evolving payments landscape, smartSEND allows patrons to securely and instantly add and withdraw funds from their casino accounts via their U.S. debit card. With smartSEND, Resorts World will provide patrons with immediate access to their funds, thus greatly enriching the overall casino experience.
“The Resorts World team understands the way their guest transaction is ever evolving and today is another example of that. With the player and guest experience at the top of every technology we bring together, smartSEND is here to enhance that mission. NRT has incorporated robust security measures into this real-time financial platform, ensuring all transactions are encrypted and protected from unauthorized access. The integration of this state-of-the-art system emphasizes Resorts World’s ongoing commitment to technological innovation and elevating customer satisfaction,” Michael Dominelli, President of NRT Technology, said.
Traditionally, patrons at land-based casinos were required to bring cash or vouchers to tables and slots. With smartSEND, real-time funding and payouts is now possible via debit cards at the physical point of play, enabling a safer and more convenient gaming experience that reduces the reliance on cash for both patrons and casinos.
“As we are committed to enhancing player experiences by harnessing innovative technologies, smartSEND provides a significant leap forward in the security and efficiency of transactions. With this state-of-the-art solution and our partnership with NRT Technologies, we are thrilled to be paving the way for payment innovation within the gaming industry while continuing to meet the evolving needs of our guests,” Al Meranto, VP of casino operations at Resorts World Las Vegas, said.
As the digital transformation wave hits traditional establishments like casinos, there is a growing consumer demand for quick and trustworthy payment systems. smartSEND, bolstered by partnerships with trusted entities like AptPay, meets these expectations head-on, marking a significant stride in payment innovations within the gaming sector.
Jackpot Digital Receives License to Install Three Jackpot Blitz(R) ETGs at Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort in California
Jackpot Digital has announced that it has received licensing approval from the Jackson Rancheria Tribal Gaming Agency, the regulator for Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort located in Jackson, California. The vendor’s license was the final step required for the Company to install Jackpot Blitz ETGs at Jackson Rancheria. The Company is now scheduling installation for three of its next-generation, dealerless Jackpot Blitz ETGs at the property.
Each new table installed will represent additional monthly recurring revenue to the Company.
In addition to Jackpot’s cruise ship customers, which include Carnival Cruises, Virgin Voyages, Princess Cruises, Holland America, AIDA, and Costa Cruises, Jackpot has announced land-based installations or orders in 12 states and territories in the US and growing, including California, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, US Virgin Islands, Washington, as well as several international jurisdictions.
NYC Agency Aims to Streamline Casino Application Process, But Critics Warn of Potential Community Exclusion
On Monday, the Department of City Planning introduced a new measure aimed at simplifying the application process for casinos in New York City. However, this move has sparked criticism for potentially sidelining community boards.
This initiative, discreetly submitted last Friday, emerges amidst intense competition among prominent developers for one of the three sought-after casino licenses in the downstate area.
Dan Garodnick, the City Planning Commissioner, described the measure, formally known as a zoning text amendment, as an effort to streamline the alignment of city and state procedures during a meeting on Monday.
Garodnick explained, “Our proposal is designed to level the playing field for these entities as they strive to demonstrate the economic benefits they plan to bring to New York City. Our goal is to establish a process that facilitates an orderly dialogue.”
While the state is responsible for granting casino licenses, Garodnick and City Council Speaker Adrienne Adams expressed concerns in October about the city’s current land review processes. They argued that these processes are insufficient for new casinos, placing New York in a less competitive position.
The proposed amendment aims to simplify the review process, allowing state-sanctioned casinos to proceed without zoning conflicts or redundant steps in the state’s extensive licensing procedure, according to Garodnick.
With two of the downstate licenses likely going to existing racinos in Yonkers and South Ozone Park, Queens, the battle for the remaining license in New York City is intense. City Planning has confirmed eight potential locations, including five in Midtown Manhattan, one at Ferry Point in the Bronx, one in Queens proposed by Mets owner Steve Cohen, and another in Brooklyn near Coney Island, in addition to the Queens racino.
