US – Golden Entertainment and Marker Trax to roll out Quick Play cashless solutionBy Phil - 22 February 2021
Golden Entertainment and Marker Trax will introduce Quick Play to Golden Entertainment’s casinos and taverns, bringing the convenience of cashless advances to players through the innovative technology of Marker Trax.
Quick Play will debut at Arizona Charlie’s Decatur, located at 740 S. Decatur Blvd., and will roll out at Golden Entertainment’s other casinos and taverns soon thereafter. Players will be able to use Quick Play and easily access advances electronically. Quick Play is powered by Marker Trax technology which interfaces with Konami Gaming, Inc.’s award-winning Synkros casino management system to seamlessly issue, record, manage, and track players’ cashless advances and electronic balances.
“Marker Trax and Konami have created pioneering technology that are bringing our exclusive Quick Play program to market,” said Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Golden Entertainment, Steve Arcana. “Quick Play will improve the player experience by allowing our casinos and taverns to issue cashless advances quickly and conveniently.”
Guests will be able to sign up for Quick Play either online or through an app and access their advance balance from the comfort of any gaming device at Golden’s properties. The advance will then be available as players play different machines through Golden Entertainment’s loyalty program, True Rewards.
“We are thrilled to partner with Golden Entertainment, leaders in the gaming industry, to introduce the Quick Play system utilising the Marker Trax technology,” said Charlie Skinner, chief operating officer at Marker Trax. “This customised platform was developed to support the Company’s mission to enhance the player experience.”
“Golden Entertainment has long prioritized guest experience and convenience, which is clearly seen here through its leadership with Quick Play’s launch,” said Tom Jingoli, executive vice president and chief operating officer at Konami Gaming, Inc. “The organization is leveraging top cashless technology available through Marker Trax and SYNKROS, to ultimately benefit players across its portfolio.”
