Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Everi Holdings Inc, a premier provider of gaming products and financial technology and loyalty solutions in the gaming industry, has announced its plan to roll out a contactless wallet by the end of the year.

CashClub Wallet, the fully cashless integrated mobile solution that is expected to be live in the first casinos in the fourth quarter of 2020, demonstrates the Company’s positioning as an industry innovator and leader for both cash and cashless funding solutions to address the unique needs of the highly regulated gaming industry.

“For almost two decades, our cash access solutions have been at the forefront of innovative player funding technology across the gaming industry. In 2019, we facilitated more than 115 million transactions that delivered $30 billion of cash to casino floors and generated $165 million in revenue for Everi. We have a large base of casinos and other facilities using our fully integrated FinTech network today, as well as our portfolio of compliance services and loyalty products. We stand ready to leverage the strengths of our current product suite, already live on casino floors, with our deep development pipeline of products and services to enhance our status as provider of choice in the gaming industry well into the future. Our focused innovation and breadth of integrated capabilities enables us to provide casino patrons with a seamless transition to our cashless alternatives, positioning us to meet players’ and casino operators’ preferences, whether players want to select cash or a cashless funding solution,” Michael Rumbolz, Chief Executive Officer of Everi Holdings, said.

“In the near-term, we expect players’ choice for funding on the casino floor will continue to favor existing cash access solutions, such as ATM withdrawals or cash advances. Going forward, and over time, adoption of cashless and contactless funding solutions will grow, allowing players the ability to move value across gaming and non-gaming venues within our customers’ land-based operations, but also into and out of a casino’s online and sports wagering offerings, and finally back to the patrons’ checking, credit and debit accounts. These bi-directional funding solutions are the hallmark of Everi’s CashClub Wallet ecosystem. Players will have the opportunity to transfer funds into and out of their wallet from the comfort of their own home before arriving at their favorite casino. This will create additional opportunities for new incremental transactions and provide tremendous value for patrons,” added Rumbolz. “By providing cashless options for players, we are creating new revenue opportunities for our customers and Everi. With our superior solutions for cash and cashless funding access, combined with our money transmitter capabilities and our integration with third-party, cashless wagering systems, we’re strategically positioned to provide seamless, cost-efficient back-of-the-house functionality to solve the unique regulatory needs of casino operators – creating a fully integrated, multi-jurisdictional, on premise and online, cashless financial- and loyalty-based ecosystem that will provide compelling value for both casino operators and players.”

Sports data specialist Stats Perform has entered into a partnership with Live Graphic Systems (LIGR) to deliver rich statistical broadcast graphics for sports leagues and broadcasters looking to streamline production costs while maintaining professional standards and commercial integrations.

The partnership highlights more than three years of cooperative projects between Stats Perform and LIGR, including customers like Gravity Media, Cricket Australia, Football NSW, and Queensland Rugby League. The partnership brings together Stats Perform’s industry-leading event and tracking data and deep storytelling expertise with LIGR’s best-in-breed live sports broadcast graphics platform, including access to LIGR’s out-of-the-box professional graphics templates and their industry-leading sponsorship modules for easy upload, display and reporting of commercial in-game inventory.

“With Stats Perform’s world-class data and advanced storytelling resources, sports broadcasters and leagues will be able to utilise LIGR’s platform to produce large volumes of data-enriched broadcast experiences with world-class graphics in a streamlined, cost-efficient production workflow. This next generation workflow is self-serve, in the cloud, out-of-the-box, and up and running in minutes, even for the most unskilled user. This is extremely exciting for sports leagues and broadcasters who have struggled to produce professional broadcasts with real-time data integrations under limited budgets, away from traditional broadcasting solutions. Now more than ever, cloud-based and automated, data-driven workflows will be a key driver for the sports and broadcast industry to move forward while live sports content is still king,” Luke McCoy, Co-founder and CEO of LIGR, said.

“Sports broadcasts today rely on slick, fast, informative graphics that drive the game’s narrative, while breaking down vast data points and analytics in a visually appealing way that fans can digest. LIGR’s intelligent, out-of-the-box broadcast graphic tools integrate Stats Perform’s advanced event and tracking data to deliver a sleek, easy-to-use tool, that also makes overlaying advertising easy, generating new sponsorship revenue for our customers. We are excited to be working with LIGR to offer new tools to power any broadcast,” Wayne Ford, Senior Vice President of Global Partners and Channels at Stats Perform, said.
