As schools go on break and the days grow longer, people across the country are planning their vacations. The summer vacation season is upon us, which means boom times for travel and hospitality. In fact, the tourism and hospitality industries received a hand all the way from the White House. Last month, President Joe Biden lifted restrictions requiring travelers from abroad to provide a negative COVID-19 test. American Gaming Association (AGA) President Bill Miller lauded the decision, writing, “By welcoming back international business and leisure travelers, the American gaming industry and our nation’s hospitality sector can fully recover. This move puts the United States on equal footing with other countries and will provide a major boost to our nation’s travel and hospitality industries.”
The commercial gaming industry is heavily reliant on the movements of the hospitality industry more broadly. Especially now, while American sports are in a lull until college and professional football returns, gaming institutions should focus on their in-person gaming channels. Global Payments Gaming Solutions offers products that make payments easy and enhance the gaming experience.
Global Payments Gaming Solutions is paving the way for cashless gaming, the latest innovation in the gaming industry. Global Payments’ VIP Mobility™ is the industry’s first mobile solution enabling true cashless gaming. VIP Mobility allows patrons to complete all their payments on their mobile device, improving convenience and eliminating the need to carry cash. VIP Mobility also utilizes Global Payments’ industry-standard e-check network, VIP Preferred®, to enable simple and easy transactions.

VIP Financial Center is a full-service kiosk solution that features a robust range of abilities, including self-service TITO ticket redemption, bill breaking, VIP Preferred e-check, ATM and cash advance capabilities.
As coronavirus restrictions ease, the hospitality and tourism industries have a chance to make a huge comeback this summer. Gaming industry professionals are in a position to take advantage of the increase in travel. To capitalize on this opportunity, casino operators need to offer an exciting, enjoyable experience and simple, straightforward payments.
