Japan Racing Organization to deploy biometric-enabled cashless betting machines

Fujitsu Limited and Fujitsu Frontech Limited today announced that their jointly developed biometric-enabled cashless betting machines will be put to use by the Japan Racing Association (JRA). The betting machines will allow users to place bets without using cash by simply holding their hands out to the machine and using their JRA-UMACA contactless membership card. 

The JRA will begin operating the betting machines at the Tokyo Racecourse on September 22, 2018. 

Users link their pre-registered palm vein information with their JRA-UMACA card, which can be loaded with money. This enables highly secure placement of cashless bets as well as payouts, authenticating the user with their unique bio-signature when they touch their JRA-UMACA card to the cashless betting machine and hold out the palm of their hand. The JRA will initially operate the machines at the Tokyo Racecourse, and plans to expand the service to the Fukushima, Chukyo, and Hanshin racecourses, and subsequently to all racecourses nationwide as well as WINS off-course betting facilities. 

The Fujitsu Group actively supports the JRA’s digital transformation by contributing to the improvement of fan services, providing solutions that can be used both safely and conveniently.
