International Game Technology has announced that its cashless gaming technology is propelling the new era of gaming at Svenska Spel venues throughout Sweden.

Through IGT's INTELLIGEN systems product utilising IGTPay technology, Svenska Spel players now have the option to easily and securely fund their play at video lottery terminals from their mobile devices.

Svenska Spel's recent launch of the IGT VLT system and Quasar VLTs enables players to use their mobile device to register for and log into VLTs by integrating with their individual, nationally available Digital BankID, paving the way for cashless gaming with the addition of IGTPay.

Now, with the deployment of IGTPay, players who are logged onto a Svenska Spel VLT are presented with the option to draw funds directly from their bank account through Swish, a widely used mobile payment service in Sweden that is owned by the banks.

Players simply approve the transfer via their mobile device and start playing their favourite VLT games. This end-to-end process takes just seconds. Following completion of gameplay, Svenska Spel can return any available funds directly back to the player's bank account automatically and instantaneously for a very progressive retail experience.
