You have questions. We have answers.

There are two common scenarios for the use of RFID in gaming applications. First: you as a gaming operator or slot manufacturer can use RFID to enable your staff to operate the gaming machine (e.g., winner payouts, internal statistics access, machine maintenance, physical keys replacement). Second: you can use RFID for player authentication (to control who is playing, track winnings/losses, etc.) RFID player authentication can also help you meet local government regulations requiring player identification (age, blacklist, etc.).

Yes, players can use their smartphone, or any near field communications (NFC)-enabled device, for authentication in gaming applications. The device can tap on and tap off to the game machine so a player can walk up to the game and use their NFC-enabled device to log onto the machine. In addition to NFC, ELATEC readers are equipped with a BLE (Bluetooth® Low Energy) module. While NFC is used for short-range communication between gaming machines and mobile devices, BLE allows players to be authenticated via their mobile phones in ranges of several meters.

There are many use cases when a contactless card is used for an internal payment system. This works very well for gaming environments such as casinos, arcades, cruise ships and gaming halls. Players can use their RFID cards for authentication and keep their credits stored securely on the card. The latest products (e.g. DESfire EV2) provide a high level of security using 3DES or AES encryption for privacy and reliable protection of transmitted data.
