Malta, October 7, 2018– Win Systems, the leading technology supplier for the gaming and entertainment industry, announced that it has fully integrated the groundbreaking Card2Go® dual-account, dual-modality debit card created by Cash2Go® Inc., a specialty fintech company based in Las Vegas.
Card2Go® is a unique innovation in the gaming industry, allowing a single card to be used as a gaming card inside the casino in the close-loop environment managed by Win System’s WIGOS casino management system, and to be used outside the casino in the open-loop networks as a debit card to make purchases at merchants, online and to obtain cash at ATMs.
The Card2Go® card uses two separate balances, which are managed by the consumer using the Card2Go® mobile app (iOS and Android) where they can transfer funds between them in real time. The app also allows Card2Go® cardholders to receive special promotions, notices of events, customized coupons and other special benefits.
Integration of Cash2Go’s platform with the WIGOS CMS makes card issuance a straightforward process, done at the casino cashier in real time. Online customers can complete the online application and have their card mailed afterwards.
The first offering of Card2Go® occurred last week at Casino Central in Hermosillo, Mexico. Win Systems, whose WIGOS platform is used at many of the casinos in Mexico, expects other casino operators to follow suit and implement Card2Go® in the coming months.
Eric Benchimol, CEO of Win Systems, said: “We´re very proud of the introduction of Card2Go, which will offer our casino operators an innovation that will not only benefit the customer experience, but which also provides casino operators meaningful business capabilities. The product took time to develop, but we can now see it was worth investing the time and energy.”
Scott Walker, President of Cash2Go® Inc., commented “We made our first launch of Card2Go in a casino in Hermosillo, México, and let me tell you it exceeded our expectations. Not only the customers were excited about the product, but the employees themselves were excited about the possibility of offering such a solution to their customers. It was amazing.”
