LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Oct 1, 2012) - JCM Global, Techfirm Inc. and NRT Technology Corp. have teamed together to give a demonstration of the world's first fully interactive mobile wager network that connects the players, their Mobile Wager Wallet™, a QuickJack™ redemption ATM kiosks and a gaming device. The demonstration will take place at G2E 2012, in JCM's booth #3631 and in NRT's booth #3865.
The demonstration is the manifestation of a refinement of JCM and Techfirm's Mobile Wager Wallet product that delivers mobile transaction capability. The two companies previewed the technology at last year's G2E to rave reviews. Now, NRT, the leading provider of multifunctional redemption ATM kiosks, has integrated the Mobile Wager Wallet technology into their ATM.
This integration allows casino patrons to withdraw virtual funds from ATMs onto their phone and into their mobile wager wallet for use at electronic gaming machines, and potentially at retail, food and entertainment venues within a casino property. Additionally, players can transfer virtual funds from the MWW back in to their account on the NRT ATM, or dispense funds, if desired.
The refinement and integration are major steps forward, further evolving JCM and the JCM product line, which will continue to help operators evolve their casino business.
JCM Director of New Product Development Brian Montano said, "JCM has long been the leader in automated transactions in the gaming industry, and has a long history of bringing stakeholders together to advance technology. We are thrilled to bring the major players of Techfirm, NRT and JCM together for a project of this magnitude that will be a game-changer for the industry."
Techfirm founder and CMO Yuichiro Tsutsui said, "The last year has been one of extensive development. We have been working closely with the JCM team to understand the wants and needs of operators and the necessary regulatory considerations, and we have been working closely with the NRT team to create a seamless integration. The result is very exciting, and we are certain the gaming industry will be impressed with the results of our efforts to date."
Michael Dominelli, Vice President of Marketing at NRT, said, "NRT has been a leader in bringing ATM and kiosk technology to the casino industry for decades. In those years, we have always been on the lookout for new technologies that will help our customers advance their business strategies, and we are very excited to bring this latest innovation to life."
The use of mobile e-money services is widespread throughout Japan, with millions of smart phones being NFC-enabled. Outside of Japan, the technology is just starting to be accepted in all aspects of automated transactions.
It is anticipated to grow quickly in North America, and Google recently announced its launch of a "Google Wallet." Additionally, all mobile providers are now equipping their smart phones with NFC technology.
In addition to the Mobile Wager Wallet technology, JCM will show its award-winning line of signature products including the iVIZION®, UBA-RC® and Vega-RC® bill validators; the iV8 table game bill validator; the PayCheck 4® thermal printer; the Intelligent Cash Box (ICB®) 3.0; and the Sentry 2.0® smart bezel.
Evolve with JCM in G2E booth #3631.
