RFID - The Future of Player Tracking

Radio Frequency Identification IS the future of player tracking. With the rampant hacking of mag stripe cards - banks, credit card companies, and retail giants have already begun to switch to RFID cards. Cell phones have also proven easy to hack, making RFID the obvious solution for the gaming industry. XS Technology is proudly leading the way with its state of the art RFID readers.
Introducing our new line of RFID readers ranging from the XS RFID Light, which simply ID’s players, to the intermediate XS RFID Plus, to our RFID Ultra, XS Cash™, our combination mag stripe/RFID reader which offers the ultimate in security and eliminates the need for tickets altogether. It allows casinos to gradually phase out mag stripe cards as more and more players are drawn to using RFID.
With over 350,000 readers in the field, we know player tracking like no one else, and see RFID as its inevitable future. That’s why we’re developing ways to upgrade all of our current mag stripe readers so they can accommodate RFID. At XS Technology we’re not waiting for the future, we’re committed to creating it.

NEW! XS RFID Ultra = "XS Cash™"

XS RFID ULTRA XS Technology introduces XS Cash™, our state of the art combination mag stripe/ RFID card reader. It tracks player activity electronically with total security and eliminates the need for tickets. The RFID chip in the card stores cash value and functions like an electronic ticket. It’s encrypted with multiple layers of protection and nearly impossible to hack. Players put cash value on their card to start playing and cash out when they’re finished. No more time wasted time handling tickets or cash. The RFID chip provides complete player security if the card is lost.
