JOINGO Mobile Loyalty Platform to Be Offered as Preferred Mobile App for IGT Customers
LAS VEGAS — (December 8, 2021) Sightline today announced that IGT (NYSE: IGT) will deploy Sightline’s proprietary mobile loyalty platform, JOINGO, as IGT’s preferred mobile app solution for casino operators leveraging IGT casino management technology. This collaboration builds on the existing delivery of cashless gaming solutions using Sightline’s award-winning digital commerce platform Play+ and IGT’s suite of products including the IGT ADVANTAGE™ casino management system, the Resort Wallet™ and IGTPay™ cashless solutions and the PlaySports™ platform.
Sightline’s mobile loyalty platform JOINGO enables casino brands to create their own unique mobile apps which nearly 100 casinos have utilized nationwide. JOINGO’s cloud-based system allows operators to send targeted messages, create geofences, and view advanced analytics through personalized and interactive mobile campaigns that drive increased reach, loyalty, and revenue. IGT’s suite of casino management products work compatibly with Sightline’s mobile loyalty platform to provide operators a best-in-class technology offering.
In October, IGT and Sightline announced as a funding method for IGT’s land based cashless wagering solutions, Resort Wallet and IGTPay. By adding Play+ into IGTPay, players can fund their Resort Wallet accounts via Play+ and then use those funds for gaming and entertainment at casino properties. Sightline’s mobile loyalty platform further empowers IGT customers with more resources to facilitate a modern gaming experience.
“As the adoption of cashless solutions continues to grow in our space, questions around mobile app strategy come up more and more,” said Ryan Reddy, SVP Global PM VLT, Systems, Payments & Poker. “Working with Sightline to offer their industry-leading mobile loyalty platform allows us to answer those questions while giving us the chance to focus on what we do best, providing our partners the best products to deliver the best experience for their customers.”
“Sightline is constantly looking at ways to innovate to improve the customer experience. Expanding our relationship with IGT enhances our ability to transform the casino gaming industry,” said Sightline SVP Mobile Kirk Olson. “Leveraging IGT’s leadership across the gaming industry with Sightline’s best-in-class technology will provide casinos nationally with an innovative, guest-friendly experience that will accelerate the adoption of cashless gaming.”
Both Sightline and IGT were recognized at the 2021 Global Gaming Awards. IGT’s Resort Wallet and IGTPay solutions were awarded Product Innovation of the Year. Sightline’s Play+ was named Payment Solution of the Year. Both companies look forward to continued success in delivering these award-winning solutions.
