Aristocrat Brings Cashless Wagering to Boyd Gaming’s Blue Chip Casino

New cashless wagering digital wallet technology spearheaded by Aristocrat and Boyd Gaming is a big step in revolutionizing casino experience in land-based casinos.

Boyd Gaming’s Blue Chip Casino Resort Spa in Michigan City, Indiana is going digital with the launch of Aristocrat Technologies, Inc.’s cashless wagering digital wallet technology. 

The introduction of cashless gaming is part of the casino’s Resort Wallet feature, which allows patrons to top up their account with cash at the cashier cage. Players can then use their B Connected player loyalty card at Blue Chip Casino to instantly access their funds and use the digital wallet at slot machines as well as redeem tickets. 

Blake Rampmaier, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer at Boyd Gaming, said:

Building on our strategic partnership with Aristocrat, Boyd Gaming continues to add best-in-class mobile cashless wagering and contactless solutions that will greatly enhance the patron experience at our properties.”

The new digital wallet technology will initially work on slot machines, but Boyd Gaming intends to use the digital wallet on Blue Chip Casino’s table games, restaurants, and other casino and resort amenities in the future.

Moreover, the two gaming companies, based on the digital wallet’s success and acquired regulatory approvals, plan to expand their digital wallet technology to more Boyd Gaming properties in the country. 

Rampmaier added:

As previously announced, we will continue to leverage our partnership with Aristocrat to drive mobile innovation in a secure and exciting environment for our patrons.”

The launch of the cashless wagering digital technology is a perfect response to calls from regulators for land-based casinos to prioritize cashless gaming during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Meanwhile, this move from Aristocrat and Boyd Gaming serves as a nod at the possibilities of cashless gaming to become the new norm at brick-and-mortar casinos. More importantly, this may pave the way for more digital wallets to be utilized in the casinos, which serves as an opportunity for casinos to utilize cryptocurrencies, tokens, and even blockchain technology.

On the side of online casinos, players can conveniently play casino games and bet on sports using digital payment systems, especially when using Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

Meanwhile, GVC Holdings funds UNLV to develop gaming and regulatory classes which will start in Q1 and Q2 2021.
