Cashless Gaming Now Live on Slots and Tables at Hollywood Casino York
Las Vegas, CA /PRNewswire/ - Acres Manufacturing Company ("AMC") today announced that the company's Foundation™ casino management system is enabling cashless gaming at Penn National Gaming, Inc.'s (Nasdaq: PENN) ("Penn National") new Hollywood Casino York in Pennsylvania, following previous installations at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course and the Meadows Racetrack & Casino in Pennsylvania. Foundation™ will continue to be deployed at Penn National casinos pending regulatory approvals.
At Penn National, Foundation™ interfaces to Penn National's mychoice wallet, which is powered by Everi Holdings Inc.'s (NYSE: EVRI) ("Everi") digital CashClub Wallet,® to transfer funds from player accounts to the game of their choice. The solution works on slot machines and table games throughout the casino floor. In addition to cashless technology, AMC's Foundation™ provides a rich, real-time stream of player behavior data that is delivered through an open API that allows Penn National to understand and predict player behavior and preferences.
“We at Acres applaud Penn National’s efforts to constantly improve the player experience,” said John Acres, Founder of AMC. “Penn National’s technical team very quickly harnessed the power of Foundation to deliver the best cashless gaming system in the industry.”
“We are thankful for the hard work and collaboration with Acres and Everi in helping us deliver industry leading customer engagement technology,” said Todd George, Executive Vice President of Operations at Penn National. “This partnership allows for our customers to safely and securely fund their favorite slots and table games cardless, cashless and contactless without the need to carry cash or go to an ATM.”
