A senior Bacta delegation comprising national president James Miller, vice president Greg Wood and chief executive John White, joined Game Payment Technology’s (GPT) Tim Stratton on the first morning of EAG to cut the ribbon celebrating the official launch of the industry’s cashless payment app, Yalp.
As EAG got down to business many delegates made a bee line to the Yalp stand to receive live demonstrations, hear about the far ranging social responsibility undertakings that are a core part of the Yalp build and learn about the next steps on the Yalp journey.
Bacta’s Robert Gibb, who is part of the senior team leading the Yalp project said: “We have been incredibly busy since the doors opened on EAG. When we started in the summer our aim was to officially launch at EAG and so far the response has been fantastic from all sections of the business. We have seen key people from the manufacturing sector, from operators, PubCos, AGCs, FECs as well as delegates who have travelled from outside the UK. The response has been really positive and it’s clear the industry is very, very keen to adopt Yalp.”
The Yalp presence at EAG extends to the show’s seminar programme where John Rozek, GPT’s Financial Compliance Director was outlining the significant contributions Yalp will make to social responsibility. After EAG the Yalp brand will move to ICE London where it will appear in front of a global audience as part of the Reflex Gaming stand.
