US.- A tribal casino in California has announced plans to implement cashless gaming on its slot and video poker machines through a partnership with casino solutions company Marker Trax.

The Morongo Casino Resort and Spa in California will be the first tribal casino and first Californian gaming property to introduce cashless wagering markers.

Instead of collecting physical cash from a casino marker, guests will be able to enrol in a PIN-protected SYNKROS cashless wagering account, using the Marker Tax credit line to play electronically on Morongo’s slot and video poker machines.

The new system, which Monrongo hopes to launch early next year, will allow bettors to register for their digital marker and begin cashless gaming in under five minutes.

COO of Morongo Casino, Richard St. Jean, said in a statement: “The convenience and ease of Marker Trax will be a huge bonus for our players, and underscores Morongo’s history of embracing state-of-the-art technology to enhance our gaming experience.

“With Marker Trax, our guests can be approved for a gaming line and at the machine in minutes.”

Meanwhile, card rooms in Los Angeles have been ordered to close their doors for the third time this year after an increase in Covid-19 cases.
