Swedish operator Svenska Spel has announced an integration deal with International Game Technology (IGT) that will see IGTPay, IGT’s cashless gaming technology, rolled out across Svenska Spel venues. Under the terms of the deal, Svenska Spel will integrate its systems with IGTPay technology which will enable VLT players to deposit funds directly from their mobile phones.
The Swedish operator had previously launched IGT’s Intelligent VLT software and Quasar VLTs that allowed players to sign up and log in to the machines. Players in Sweden could as well deposit money into their accounts using BankID, a homegrown banking and identification solution. With the current deal, players can now withdraw funds from their account via IGTPay or to their bank account via Swedish payment service Swish.
Magnus Lannersund, the Director of VLT operations at Svenska Spel, released a statement saying that the new cashless gaming technology will mark a new era of gaming as their players will be able to access a leading-edge solution that can be linked directly to the Swish mobile app. This new feature will not only increase efficiency but will also improve players’ gaming experience in a streamlined service.
Ryan Reddy, the VP of Systems and Payments Products at IGT, was also pleased with this newly established arrangement, stating that IGTPay will form a crucial component in enriching player experiences. He added that IGT had established a devoted payments team that would ensure Svenska Spel is furnished with modern payment options to achieve customer satisfaction.
The two companies partnered back in 2006 with IGT supplying VLT technology in over 5000 Svenska Spel outlets.
