This solution increases players’ comfort and safety by using RFID Cashless Cards for all money transfers on the slot floor and by bringing also substantial reduction to your staff costs.
It is somehow “Spirit off the times” module; plastic Money is in fact gaining advantage over cash and this trend has inexorably entered also the gaming industry. It comes natural to the players to use plastic cards as electronic wallets, instead of using coins, bills or tickets.

This is probably the main reason why Cashless module is increasing in popularity. The money can be loaded on the Cashless Card at the Cash Desks. When the card is inserted into the slot machine, the assets are transferred into the slots credits and can be played. Credits can be transferred back onto the card with the Cash-out button and can be played at the next slot. At the end of the day the
 credits can be redeemed and cashed out at the Cash Desk or at the Self-service Terminal. This procedure is extremely secure for the players as well as for the casino.

The players can additionally enhance security by using optional PIN to access their assets.
Data about all transactions are permanently stored on the Floor Server in Central Database and can be used for analytics and financial reporting. These data can also be used to bonus the players within or outside the loyalty programs.
