Global Cash Access has completed a sponsorship agreement with Absa Bank, one of the leading banks in Africa, to provide credit card cash advances in casinos in South Africa.
Global Cash Access (GCA) will offer casinos and their customers with credit card cash advances at the cage and cash advance approvals via its patron-activated QuikCash terminals and kiosks, which will provide debit card and credit card cash advance transaction options. GCA will also offer QuikCash Plus Web, a web-based system that will help casinos and staff streamline transactions and improve customer service.
Scott Dowty, GCA’s senior vice president in charge of international business, said: We’re very happy to be able to begin serving South African casinos – and to do so by being sponsored by one of the continent’s largest banks. This is the optimal way to enter a gaming market and to serve casinos and their patrons.

GCA has partnered with leading banks all over the world, and their proven technology in the gaming space will surely benefit South Africa’s robust gaming industry.
