Global Cash Access, the leading supplier of cash access, financial management and customer relationship marketing technologies to the gaming industry, has launched QuikFunds to provide off-track betting establishments and their customers a quick, safe and convenient method of transferring funds from their credit card or checking account.
With QuikFunds, OTB customers have around-the-clock access to their funds. Once a patron has established a QuikFunds account, funds can be transferred within seconds from their payment instrument of choice via a toll-free number to any OTB property in GCA’s network of more than 1,000 gaming properties in the U.S., Canada, Caribbean and Europe.
“Prior to QuikFunds, it was restrictive and time consuming for patrons to transfer their funds to off-track betting establishments,” said Kirk Sanford, chief executive officer of GCA. “With QuikFunds, patrons now have a cash access tool for off-track betting that is easy to use and provides almost instant access to their funds, while the property benefits from another revenue source.”
Patrons establish a QuikFunds account with a simple one-time enrollment process. Patrons are pre-screened and approved once their credit card(s) or checking account is verified. Funds can be transferred immediately or at a later date. QuikFunds features an advanced Interactive Voice Response (IVR) Unit telephone authorization system to ensure that funds are transferred only from a state in which it is legal to place a wager. The IVR prompts patrons to enter a specific OTB location for which they’d like the money to be transferred and then verifies the location of the patron. Upon verification, the IVR asks the patron for the amount requested and confirms acceptance of the service fee. The patron is then issued a confirmation number and funds are sent to the OTB establishment.
