Resort Advantage and Sightline Team Up on the First Completely Electronic Payment Options for Jackpot Winners
ROYAL OAK, Mich., Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Resort Advantage (RA), the recognized innovation leader in FinCEN and IRS compliance solutions for the gaming industry, and Sightline Interactive, the gaming industry's leading program manager of prepaid loyalty card programs, have teamed up to establish the industry's first completely integrated electronic jackpot payout process.
As respective winners of Casino Journal's Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Technology Products awards, Resort Advantage has integrated Sightline's casino-branded Loyalty Card Plus™ prepaid card program into its Slots Jackpot Accelerator™ (SJA) mobile jackpot payout processing solution. This unique integration offers winning patrons a new alternative for receiving all or part of their jackpot winnings in real-time to their casino branded prepaid card.
According to Diran Kludjian, Executive Vice President of Sightline, "We are extremely excited to be working with Resort Advantage and their industry-leading SJA solution. Sightline's Prepaid Programs are revolutionizing the gaming customer experience and operators are utilizing our Loyalty Card Plus Prepaid program in a variety of innovative ways, including jackpot payouts. Our prepaid program provides a safe, secure and responsible way to enhance the patrons' gaming experience while reducing their dependency on cash."
Slots Jackpot Accelerator enhances the experience of each winning patron, giving the property a unique customer service advantage. Using an Android, iPad, or Windows mobile device's touch screen, camera, barcode reader, mag stripe reader and phone capabilities, SJA greatly reduces the manual effort required by floor, cage, and compliance personnel to process jackpots and can completely eliminate paperwork produced. SJA's simple wizard interface walks the floor staff through each required information-gathering step in the payout process according to the business rules of the property.
"The collaboration between Resort Advantage and Sightline Interactive is a real patron experience game-changer by providing a fast and efficient alternative for jackpot payouts to winning patrons on the floor," said Brian Ferrilla, Managing Director of Resort Advantage. "Our mutual clients benefit from a seamless integration that bridges the gap between accurately capturing data, real-time, from the casino floor and effectively responding to that data in a safe and secure manner so jackpot payouts are easier, safer and more convenient than cash or check. Lastly, casinos benefit by keeping patrons on property, reducing the cost and risk of cash management, and further reducing jackpot payout processing costs."
