Sightline Payments and Aristocrat Technologies have announced a partnership to deliver cashless gaming solutions through Aristocrat Gaming’s Oasis 360 casino management system.

The partnership extends Sightline’s Play+ integrated payment solution with Aristocrat’s Oasis 360 cashless wagering account to enable casino operators new capabilities including digital mobile payment and contactless wallet options for their guests.

Sightline and Aristocrat initially launched these new capabilities at several Boyd Gaming properties including Indiana, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Ohio with more planned through BoydPay, which enables guests to use their smartphones to seamlessly fund their gaming and pay for amenities throughout the properties.

Aristocrat and Sightline plan to work in tandem across North America to leverage these new opportunities for Sightline’s 70+ partners and the more than 400 North American casinos that utilize Aristocrat’s Oasis 360 casino management system. Additional property launches combining Sightline’s Play+ solution and Aristocrat’s Oasis 360 casino management system are in development.

“If casinos want to truly harness the transformative power of cashless gaming, they must integrate digital payments and loyalty rewards into their casino management system,” said Andrew Crowe, senior vice president, business development for Sightline Payments. “This partnership with Aristocrat will enable players across North America to seamlessly access cashless gaming on a scale that the industry has not seen before.”

“Cashless gaming is the future of our industry, and our intent was to partner with a company that can deliver an incredible experience to the guest,” said Cath Burns, executive vice president of customer experience solutions for Aristocrat. “The Sightline team fully understands the important role that the integration in the casino management system provides for the operator to improve the guest experience and we are excited to partner with Sightline to enable these innovations.”
