The hive mind behind this PIN-Debit transaction system is a casino technology company from Reno, Nevada. Automated Cashless Systems, otherwise known as ACS PlayOn, brings the idea of on-game cashless gaming to the forefront for an enhanced customer experience that the casinos can offer to their patrons.
“PlayOn is a Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliant processing solution for casino table games that have been proven to increase gaming revenue and hands per hour,” comments Stephen Warner, COO of ACS PlayOn. A completely standalone product, PlayOn, utilizes its own network with its proprietary firewalls, user authentication and encryption that can be easily integrated with any casino’s existing IT infrastructure. PlayOn has been certified for use in numerous jurisdictions by independent gaming test labs.
The PlayOn Table PIN Debit solution allows players the convenience of buying chips with no interruption or disruption at the table. For security purposes, the handheld device uses a dual encryption Bluetooth connection with its designated table. With a connectivity range of 20 feet, the device is rendered functionally useless once it is disconnected from the table and has anti-tamper circuitry to comply with PCI requirements for devices with encryption.

Additionally, ACS provides the PlayOn Financial Management System (FMS) to arm the casino with financial management tools that are required for accounting, audit, and reconciliation of all PlayOn transactions. The FMS provides detailed financial reports about all PlayOn gaming transactions in real-time that can be accessed through any standard web browser. “This internal management and accounting systems are easy to implement, and ACS PlayOn provides written internal controls, policies, and procedure manuals for further training and compliance purposes,” says Michael Sackrison, CFO of ACS PlayOn.
Facilitating an average monthly transaction volume of 5 million USD through its integration at 240 casino tables, Warner and Sackrison think that PlayOn is only touching the ‘tip of the iceberg.’ For the months to come, ACS’s vision is to spread its reach to as many casino operators as possible. Also, by identifying more emerging markets, ACS’s roadmap entails expanding its operations in the APAC region along with its current US market. PlayOn is available now throughout Nevada, New Jersey and in most Native American jurisdictions. The company is working with regulators to gain approval for the product in several additional States.
