igt logoIntercash has relaunched its popular WinningsCard promising operators no rejected transactions. The online gaming industry payment card has been around for a while and allows players to top up and cash out on a number of sites without the need for an intermediary. Intercash will be at next week’s ICE Totally Gaming Show, with CEO Patrick Seguev stating: “We’re excited to have the executive members of MasterCard Prepaid, Andrew Johnstone and Lee Russell, present in our booth throughout the tradeshow. Both their team and ours are available to answer merchant questions about our unique program.”

Gaming industry provider International Game Technology (IGT) lengthened its licensing agreement with toy manufacturer Hasbro. The terms of the deal allow IGT to distribute online games based on brands such as Monopoly, Battleship and Transformers. The new agreement runs until the end of 2014 and gives them exclusive rights in legalized jurisdictions. In terms of anything new the deal may bring Gideon Bierer, executive VP of IGT Interactive, said: “We look forward to developing new and innovative games that leverage Hasbro’s iconic gaming brands. The launch of Monopoly Plus this spring will feature exciting and ground-breaking innovation.”

IGT also waves goodbye to Michael Probert who is moving over to Bally Technologies after seven years at the firm. He becomes Bally’s European general manager for Interactive, a division that was created by the firm only months ago. In his tiem at IGT he was client services director and before that spent time as UK manager at Flipside Gaming.
