Automated Cashless Systems, Inc. (ACS) announced that it has signed its fourth property for its proprietary table game solution, PlayOn. Pala Casino Resort and Spa in Pala, Calif. will roll out PlayOn on its tables beginning this month.
PlayOn technology allows patrons to access their own money by securely utilizing their own debit card, without ever having to leave a table. At the gaming position, a patron may swipe their debit card at the PlayOn terminal, request an amount, enter his/her corresponding PIN and, upon approval, a voucher is produced and converted to chips at the table.
At the core of PlayOn’s unified experience is its strategic processing partnership with Vantiv Entertainment Solutions (VES). A part of Vantiv, Inc., which processes more than 23 billion transactions annually with a volume of $842 billion-plus, VES is the payments and transactional engine behind PlayOn the product. Additionally, ACS employs a proprietary gateway that allows properties to impose transaction limits in order to meet internal controls and responsible gaming concerns.
Pala Casino Resort and Spa joins Thunder Valley Casino Resort in Lincoln, Calif.; River Rock Casino in Geyersville, Calif.; and Santa Ana Star Casino in Santa Ana Pueblo, N.M in implementing the table game technology. Additional properties across the country will also soon unveil the PlayOn product on tables in the coming months.
“Players are embracing the convenience of PlayOn and casino/operators are experiencing the benefits of keeping players engaged at the tables, primarily through creating stronger holding power that equates to increased revenue,” said Steve Warner, founder and COO of ACS. “PlayOn is a win-win for the entire casino landscape and the properties we’ve worked with thus far have learned that firsthand. We look forward to reaching out and introducing PlayOn to more casinos and players in the months ahead.”
In addition to new properties, PlayOn is expanding to new tables at existing properties. At Thunder Valley Casino Resort, the property initially tested the technology on 12 tables and will soon install the solution on an additional 90 tables.
“ACS PlayOn has quickly become an invaluable asset to Thunder Valley’s AAA Four Diamond resort experience,” said Dawn Clayton, general manager of Thunder Valley Casino Resort. “Our guests appreciate the convenience of safe and secure transactions without having to step away from their favorite games. We look forward to working with ACS to implement PlayOn solutions on 90 additional tables at Thunder Valley.”
ACS’ patented PlayOn technology has been tested by GLI and complies with regulations for table games in California, Connecticut, New Jersey, New Mexico, and other jurisdictions. The Reno-based company also recently submitted its licensing application for approval in Nevada.
