John Rich, of the country duo Big & Rich, opened Redneck Riviera, a country bar located in the Grand Bazaar Shops at Bally’s directly above Wahlburgers in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2016. Redneck Riviera also features an additional bar uniquely dedicated to veterans. It is staffed by veterans and veterans get their first drink for free.

As a brand new business, Redneck Riviera Las Vegas needed a Point of Sale System that was easy to use, intuitive and adaptable according to the evening’s lineup. They also needed to keep customer information confidential, transactions secure and maintain the ability to process transactions efficiently.
2TouchPOS provided Redneck Riviera with their Point of Sale system as well as Datacap’s NETePay™ software paired with the Verifone VX 805 PIN pad that supports point-to-point encryption and tokenization.
2TouchPOS’ application is perfect for Redneck Riviera because it allows Redneck Riviera to process transactions quickly and securely while maintaining pre-EMV processes by utilizing EMV tip-adjust (the ability to adjust EMV tips after the initial transaction just like traditional credit cards). Using Datacap’s NETePay software keeps 2TouchPOS out of PA-DSS scope and allows them to maintain a secure system all without touching sensitive cardholder information. Point-to-point encryption helps ensure all cardholder data remains encrypted and unusable by a third party until it reaches the processor’s decryption endpoint.
Redneck Riviera opened with the ability to accept EMV Chip from Day 1. In a tourist city like Las Vegas, transaction security was very important as guests would most likely not be coming back until their next vacation. Offering EMV provides comfort and peace of mind to merchants concerned with chargebacks and fraudulent card use. “Our EMV solution with Datacap adds another layer of protection against fraud for our customers. The process of using EMV was easy! Our POS system made for a seamless transition from swiping cards to the chip. A quick session of staff training and we were off and running.” said Brandon Baker, Director of Fulfillment Services at 2TouchPOS.
