JCM Global integrates 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.
Additionally, this cashless payment allows patrons fund play through a mobile app, while also allowing casinos to avoid costly CMS upgrades and complex system integrations.
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. This allows players to choose how to interact with their favourite slot machine, table or other gaming venue, and opens up their funding options to cash as well as cashless.
Global Payments Gaming claimed VIP Mobility was a cashless option that doesn’t require creation of an account for wagering. It eases regulatory review as well as mitigating any tribal compact change.
JCM claimed that the FUZION system by JCM and the iVIZION validator for bills provide a solution that helps casino operators prevent cheating and to stop fraud. They also help increase their up-time, reduce down-time, and cut labor time during emergencies and routine 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 continues to grow their cash access products to offer an exceptional omnichannel experience. 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 is a gaming consultant who was also a founding partner at The Strategy Organization.
“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.”
Companies announced that the fully integrated cashless system will be displayed at NIGA from April 21-22.
