Global Cash Access has secured placement of a suite of its electronic gaming machines and payments solutions with the Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort in D’Iberville, Mississippi, which is scheduled to open at the end of this year.
The initial agreement includes the sale and placement of multiple slot machine banks, including the Company’s revolutionary TournEvent slot tournament system.
The award-winning TournEvent system enables operators to quickly and seamlessly switch from in-revenue gaming to out-of-revenue tournaments, bringing excitement to the slot floor. GCA video and mechanical reel slot machine titles, including Yardbirds, Carnival in Rio, and Wild Wild Gems will also be featured at the Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort upon opening.
Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort will also utilize a full suite of cash access, marketing and compliance payments solutions, including ATM/Cash access and check guarantee services, full-service kiosks and jackpot payment kiosks, CentralCredit reporting services — the leading gaming patron credit bureau, NEWave — the leading compliance software for anti-money laundering and tax reporting and QuikMarketing services enabling operators to deliver highly targeted, cost-effective direct marketing initiatives to acquire new patrons and strengthen existing patron relationships.
Denise Barton, CEO of Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort, said: “Upon opening later this year, we are committed to provide our patrons with the best possible casino experience supported by the highest level of innovation, services, and solutions. Our strategic partnership with GCA for their gaming and payments solutions will help us to meet this goal. We are looking forward to building a long-term relationship with GCA and know that their ability to provide both games and payment services will help us better serve our patrons.”
Ram Chary, GCA President & Chief Executive Officer, added: “Our industry-unique position as the only sole-source provider of both games and payments solutions allows us to offer a greater range of products across the casino floor and greater value to our casino customers. This agreement with the Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort is an exciting proof point of the early success we are having with cross-marketing our complementary solutions and a key driver of our ability to consistently grow our market share. We are committed to expanding our innovative and creative reach and are excited to partner with premier operators like the Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort.”
