JCM Global integrates with Global Payments Gaming
By Michael Bartlett
JCM Global on Tuesday said it has integrated its FUZION system and iVIZION bill validator with Global Payments Gaming’s VIP Mobility cashless gaming solution.
According to the two companies, the newly integrated product creates a cashless solution that works for all casinos – irrespective of their CMS provider.
Further, they said this cashless solution enables patrons to fund their play via a mobile app while helping casinos avoid costly CMS upgrades, complex system integrations and IP Patent Pool fees required by all other cashless solutions.
By integrating these two products together as one, JCM and Global Payments said casino guests can use their phones to quickly fund slot machines, table games, restaurants and bars – creating a cashless experience across the entire casino resort with no complicated system integrations required at any of those touch points. They added this gives players the choice of how they wish to interact with their favorite slot machine, table game, or non-gaming venue and expands their funding options to both cash and cashless possibilities.
Global Payments Gaming said VIP Mobility is a cashless solution that does not require the creation of a wagering account, thereby easing regulatory review and mitigating tribal compact changes.
JCM said its FUZION system and iVIZION bill validator provide a solution to help casino operators deter cheating, prevent acceptance of fraudulent bills, increase up-time of their slots, and save labor during routine and emergency drops.
“JCM Global is a 67-year innovator in automated transaction technologies with installations of more than 700,000 bill validators nationwide,” Chris Justice, President of Global Payments Gaming Solutions, said in a statement. “By integrating our cashless solution and database of more than 3 million players with JCM Global’s technology, it creates a truly powerful combination for casino operators.”
JCM SVP of Sales, Marketing and Operations Dave Kubajak added: “We designed iVIZION, GEN5, and FUZION to empower creativity that would help shape the future of gaming. Global Payments has continued to expand their cash access solutions to provide an excellent omni-channel experience with their high-quality products. Now, this partnership between JCM and Global Payments takes full advantage of that forward-thinking technology, making cashless payments a great option to our customers.”
Josh Swissman, gaming consultant and founding partner of The Strategy Organization, assessed:
“Global Payments Gaming perfected the cashless gaming experience, and JCM Global has perfected the slot bill validator. This partnership brings one of the most successful names in gaming supply together with the most trusted and secure name in the payments industry to provide an easy-to-use, CMS-agnostic, cashless solution to the market.”
The fully integrated cashless solution will be on display at NIGA April 21-22, the companies said.
