Scientific Games has unveiled a suite of contactless gaming solutions designed to enhance staff and player safety on gaming floors as casinos around the world begin reopening their doors through COVID-19.
The innovations include a new “Unified Wallet” via which players can instantly access funds for slots and table game play through an app on their mobile phone. The wallet eliminates the need to physically withdraw cash or redeem tickets at the cage.
Scientific Games has also unveiled a Social Distancing Module, providing three distinct features for operators: Dynamic Distancing, EGM Scheduler and Resort and Game Reserve. Dynamic Distancing facilitates social distancing amongst slot players by disabling all games within close proximity once a player cards in, while EGM Scheduler allows operators to quickly upload a list of games that should remain enabled on the casino floor and allows them to do so remotely through the use of a Control EGM feature.
Resort Reserve and Game Reserve allow players to reserve their favorite game during their visit.
“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,” said Matt Wilson, Scientific Games Executive Vice President and Gaming Group Chief Executive.
“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.”
