In-Person Gaming Makes Dramatic Recovery in 2022

by Global Payments Gaming Team / August 2, 2022

While iGaming and mobile sports betting have been the gaming industry’s hot topic for the past few years, brick-and-mortar gaming is making a comeback in 2022. According to the American Gaming Association’s (AGA) Commercial Gaming Revenue Tracker, brick-and-mortar slot and table gaming revenue is up 13.9% year over year through May 2022. Moreover, casino employment has also made a rebound. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that statewide employment has surpassed February 2020, pre-pandemic levels. In Nevada, the national epicenter for the gaming industry, leisure and hospitality employment has risen 11.2%, which is faster than any other sector in the state. With in-person gaming going strong, Global Payments Gaming Solutions offers products that enhance the gaming experience.

VIP Mobility™, Global Payments’ mobile gaming solution, is the industry’s first mobile solution enabling true cashless gaming. VIP Mobility allows patrons to make all transactions with their mobile device, leveraging digital technology to create a modern gaming experience. To fund their games, patrons need to only scan a QR code on the slot or table game and add their funds virtually. VIP Mobility is not limited to the casino floor, either. Patrons can use VIP Mobility to pay at bars, restaurants and other amenities around the resort. VIP Mobility utilizes Global Payments’ industry-standard e-check network, VIP Preferred®, to connect patrons with more than 400 in-person and online gaming institutions using bank-grade security.

Global Payments Gaming Solutions also offers products that appeal to patrons who still prefer using cash. Global Payments’ VIP Financial Center™ is an all-in-one self-service solution for casinos. VIP Financial Center is a full-service kiosk that empowers patrons to get exactly what they need without wasting time in line. VIP Financial Center delivers a robust array of services including self-service TITO ticket redemption, bill breaking, VIP Preferred e-check, ATM and cash advance capabilities.

While iGaming will doubtlessly continue to grow, in-person gaming is still an integral part of the industry, and casinos must have solutions in place to improve the patron experience to remain competitive. Global Payments Gaming Solutions provides products that streamline payments while encouraging patrons to return.
