"The message is important that Vegas is open. Vegas is doing what needs to be done in this era, right now, with COVID-19," says Howard Stutz-Executive Editor CDC Gaming Report.

The unified cashless wallet has been in development for about 15 years for security reasons, but the applications were in high demand as casinos looked for ways to reopen under COVID-19 guidelines.
In fact, many of the casinos on the Strip used the time while closed to install much of the technology that allowed them to reopen sooner.
