Cashless payments app OKTO has joined with Cirsa Group payments provider, Forward Systems, to unlock mobile cashless payments for players of its portfolio of gaming machines located in 3,000 arcades, bingo halls and casinos across Spain, Italy, and Latin America.
“To stay competitive in an increasingly digital world, merchants should be able to cater to different needs and demands of consumers as well as to different demographics,” says OKTO’s Country Manager for Spain, Nacho Frade. “OKTO solution, designed to meet all the niche demands of land-based gaming operators and users, revolutionises the traditional payment experience while making effortless the process for operators to continue maintaining the highest standards of compliance.
“Our partnership with Forward Systems is well-timed, as the land-based gaming industry, now more than ever, steps into the digital world, and it’s imperative for operators to have a digital payment strategy to level-up the retail customer experience. We are glad to cooperate with Unidesa Interactive, to provide more operators and customers in Spain with what is a perfect blend of advanced digital wallet that completely relies on accessible mobile and proprietary technology.”
Players in gaming locations connected with Forward Systems across multiple territories will be able to use the OKTO cashless payment app on their mobile phones to interact with machines.
Lluís Cabré, Director Comercial de Unidesa Interactive added: “Forward Systems is the pioneering system in providing new means of payment (TITO and cashless) to gaming and bingo halls in Spain, a reality in full growth. Now, with the integration of the OKTO wallet, we take another step to continue offering advanced payment solutions to operators, in line with current trends. We are delighted to collaborate with OKTO.”
