Ready to step into the future?

Simply take I-5 an hour north of Sacramento to Rolling Hills Casino & Resort in Corning.

The Northern California casino officially launched the Cashless Casino product from Acres Manufacturing Company on June 4.

It is the first tribal casino to utilize Acres’s state-of-the-art technology.

Cashless options available on all slot machines

While Rolling Hills looks to the future with cashless options, California remains firmly in the past regarding online gambling. California online casinos are prohibited, and that is unlikely to change anytime soon. Luckily, multiple California tribal casinos, like Rolling Hills, reside within 100 miles of most in-state residents.

Acres confirmed last week that it had installed Cashless Casino onto every slot machine at Rolling Hills. The news came roughly a year later than initially planned, based on a February 2023 announcement that the product would become available during the first half of next year.

The player-friendly technology allows guests to play without carrying cash. Rolling Hills, however, is not entirely cashless. Players can still use cash on slots, Rolling Hills General Manager Antonio Perez told PlayCA..

“Adapting to evolving player preferences and useful technological advances has become a necessary step in the casino industry and something we embrace at Rolling Hills Casino & Resort. In addition to enabling a fully flexible cashless gaming experience, Acres’ Cashless Casino allows us to provide cardless player ratings and a more frictionless player experience.

“The feedback we have received from our players has been tremendous, and it confirms what we already knew, that Acres and their Cashless Casino solution were the best choice for our property and players.”

Although Rolling Hills is the first tribal casino to use Acres’ system, it is not the only one offering a cashless option.

Southern California’s Morongo Casino Resort and Elk Grove’s Sky River Casino both offer cashless options, with Sky River utilizing cashless systems from Konami Gaming and Everi Holdings.

What is Cashless Casino?

Cashless Casino is a system that enables casinos to allow visitors to play their favorite slot machine games without needing cash. It offers numerous player- and casino-friendly features, earning it the title of 2023 Product Innovation of the Year by Gaming America.

The system is compatible with every slot machine from every manufacturer on every casino management system. It works with a wide range of digital wallets and payment processors. Each slot machine has a Bluetooth card reader installed that syncs to a casino’s mobile app. That allows players to connect to the machine.

The technology enables players to seamlessly fund and cash out from a machine, creating a streamlined gameplay experience.

With its launch at Rolling Hills, Cashless Casino now operates in 11 states, including Pennsylvania and recently approved Louisiana, Mississippi, and Missouri. A report from the Las Vegas Review Journal said it would go live at an undisclosed Nevada location later this summer.

Rolling Hills unleashes plethora of promotions in June

If trying out the new cashless options wasn’t enough of a draw, Rolling Hills has multiple promotions worth checking out in June.

Players of table games can earn tickets to a June 30 drawing for a new YETI cooler by making qualifying hands in different games. On Thursdays, players can qualify to earn a YETI drinkware item with 1,500 points.

The Route 22 promotion runs every Saturday through July 7, awarding $275,000 in drawings. Players earn an entry for every 10 points earned, and five winners are selected each hour from 7 to 10 p.m. with a chance to win up to $1,000 cash.

Other promotions include:

  • Refuel Rewards: Earn 2,500 daily points and receive a $25 fuel voucher good every Monday through June 24.
  • Welcome Back Wednesdays: Players club members who earn points on Mondays will receive e-mail offers to use on Wednesdays.
  • On Tuesdays, players aged 50 and above can receive a free Crumbl cookie from 1 to 7 p.m. Those who earn 500 points in the day can visit a kiosk to receive another prize of their choice.
