In-Person Gaming Makes Dramatic Recovery in 2022

While iGaming and mobile sports betting have been the gaming industry’s hot topics for the past few years, brick-and-mortar gaming came back in 2022. According to the American Gaming Association’s (AGA) Commercial Gaming Revenue Tracker, brick-and-mortar slot and table gaming revenue is up 13.9% yearly through May 2022. Moreover, casino employment has also made a rebound. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that statewide employment had surpassed February 2020 pre-pandemic levels. In Nevada, the national epicenter for the gaming industry, leisure and hospitality employment has risen 11.2%, faster than any other sector in the state. With in-person gaming going strong, Pavilion Payments offers products that enhance the gaming experience.

VIP Mobility™, Pavilion Payments’ mobile gaming solution, is the industry’s first mobile solution enabling cashless gaming. VIP Mobility allows patrons to make all transactions with their mobile devices, leveraging digital technology to create a modern gaming experience. To fund their games, patrons need to only scan a QR code on the slot or table game and add their funds virtually. VIP Mobility is not limited to the casino floor, either. Instead, patrons can use VIP Mobility to pay at bars, restaurants, and other amenities around the resort. VIP Mobility utilizes Pavilion Payments’ industry-standard e-check network, VIP Preferred®, to connect patrons with more than 400 in-person and online gaming institutions using bank-grade security.


Pavilion Payments also offers products that appeal to patrons who still prefer using cash. Pavilion Payments’ VIP Financial Center™ is an all-in-one self-service solution for casinos. VIP Financial Center is a full-service kiosk that empowers patrons to get precisely what they need without wasting time in line. VIP Financial Center delivers complete services, including self-service TITO ticket redemption, bill breaking, VIP Preferred e-check, ATM, and cash advance capabilities.


While iGaming will doubtlessly continue to grow, in-person gaming is still an integral part of the industry. Casinos must have solutions to improve the patron experience to remain competitive. Pavilion Payments provides products that streamline payments while encouraging patrons to return.
