JCM Global and GPT Announce Technical Collaboration

December 2022

JCM Global, a world leader in transaction and payment technologies, has announced that it will integrate the Game Payment cashless payment solution into its Ticket2Go system.

JCM develops, manufactures, and sells machines that process the world’s currencies. Ticket2Go is the company’s market-leading networked ticket in/ticket out (TITO) solution, widely used in adult gaming centres throughout the UK. With support for many different languages and currencies, Ticket2Go is installed in a wide variety of jurisdictions around the world, enabling operators to replace cash-handling with a simple, ticket-based solution. Players in Adult Gaming Centres (AGCs) will soon be able to pay and collect winnings via Ticket2Go using their Game Payment app.

Payam Zadeh, managing director of JCM Europe (UK) Limited, said “JCM are continually extending the range of features and functionality on our Ticket2Go system, and we have been impressed with the technology and functionality offered by the GPT cashless payment system. We are therefore delighted that both companies are now working together so that GPT’s cashless payment solution can be incorporated into our own product. We are working closely together on opportunities in the UK and will soon announce the extension of GPT’s cashless payments, through Ticket2Go, in other countries.

Tim Stratton, director of Game Payment Technology, added “Collaborating with JCM to integrate Game Payment with Ticket2Go provides AGC operators with a much more attractive offering than before. The combination of the two systems means that operators can offer cashless payment without needing to change individual gaming machines. The solution incorporates social responsibility measures and opportunities for precisely targeted marketing initiatives.”

JCM expects to release new Ticket2Go cashless functionality in the UK in early 2023, and then quickly make it available in other countries.
