The Venetian Resort Hotel and Casino will be the first in Nevada to use mobile gaming technology that allows people to place bets using hand-held devices within the property. Cantor Gaming will be providing the mobile service to the casino as well as to the currently under-construction Palazzo Resort Hotel Casino.
"We continuously strive to provide our customers the best overall entertainment experience available and mobile gaming is the type of cutting edge trend we think will further enhance that experience for our customers," said Robert G. Goldstein, president of The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino. "Cantor Gaming literally created the market for mobile gaming, and we are pleased to partner with them to benefit from the evolution of gaming technology."
Cantor was instrumental in the Nevada legislature's adoption of Assembly Bill 471 last year which allows wireless gaming on hand-held, mobile devices in public areas of a resort casino, such as restaurants, nightclubs, and pool side. The devices will offer a full suite of casino-style games, including blackjack, roulette, video poker, and slots.
Last week Cantor became the first company licensed by the Nevada Gaming Commission as a manufacturer, distributor, and operator of a mobile gaming system. Their new deal with the Venetian gives them a chance to do their field trial for the system, as required by gaming regulations, once they’ve received regulatory approvals.
"We're excited to have entered into a long-term partnership with the Las Vegas Sands organization," said Cantor Gaming president Lee Amaitis. "They share our commitment to innovation and providing their customers an unparalleled gaming experience. Mobile gaming will add a new dimension to the player experience and provide increased revenues to casino operators. We look forward to introducing mobile gaming at The Venetian."
