Crane Payment Innovations Partners with Viejas Casino & Resort


Crane Payment Innovations (CPI) has entered into a partnership with Viejas Casino and Resort in Alpine, CA.

Viejas players can now employ mobile payment methods as a result of the casino’s decision to upgrade their entire slot floor with SC AdvanceTM banknote validators and Easitrax Connect software.

Easitrax Connect is the latest software platform from CPI, providing live data and alerts, and enabling the acceptance of mobile payment at the machine.

“Viejas Casino is committed to delivering a cutting-edge player experience. We’re pleased that they have chosen to partner with us to be one of the first US casinos to enable cashless payment at the gaming machine,” Brian Wedderspoon, VP Gaming for CPI, said.

“Our adoption of VIP Mobility will provide additional convenience and increased transaction security for our guests. By allowing our players to bypass traditional funding sources, such as ATMs and/or the Cage, we have significantly improved optionality and expediency. We are excited to be the first Casino in Southern California to offer this new benefit to our guests, and we are confident that it will provide a material enhancement to their overall gaming experience here at Viejas,” Erich Hans, Director of Treasury / CFO, Viejas Casino & Resort, said.
