Game Payment Technology (GPT) is a joint venture between Polar Moment and JCM Global, a world leader in transaction and payment technologies, to drive the amusement and gaming machine industry forward with cashless payment solutions.

Game Payment has been running continuously without an interruption in service since its launch. That’s now 40 months!
