The Fertitta Entertainment LLC operated, Station Casinos, has not wasted anytime popping champagne corks in celebration over the 10 millionth hand that was dealt on its Nevada based online poker site Ultimate Poker. Instead, it has moved forward with its plans to follow in the footsteps of the likes of William Hill and Cantor Gaming, by producing a mobile sports betting option for the customers of its 16 brick and mortar establishments across the dusty desert.
In a bid to create a product that offers different value from its competitors, Station Casinos, have tied in the use of the app with the casinos loyalty program. This allows the customers to build up a points tally that can be used for free comps including meals, entertainment, cash and other prizes.
“I think this is fantastic for the growth potential of the sports wagering industry,” said Art Manteris, Station Casinos sports book operations vice-president, “There is still nothing like watching the event in one of our books but we know that sometimes life gets in the way. The application keeps the customer in the game.”
Royal Vegas Casino Releases New Live Chat Mode
The tech-bods at Royal Vegas Casino have managed to drag their busy bodies away from their current Alien Attack promotion, to find the time to parade it’s latest mobile adaptation of the desktop offering with the live chat mode.
If the customers of Royal Vegas Casino run into any difficulties they can now contact a live chat function through iMessage, Whatsapp or via e-mail. Live Chat eats into wasted customer time and will surely be the norm, rather than the exception, with all other mobile devices following suit.
That new live chat line might be getting a little busier, as Royal Vegas Casino recently announced their Alien Attack promotion. The online casino is offering over £20,000 in casino credits and a whole host of cool gizmos and boy’s toys. The promotion runs until 18th August.
Net Entertainment Gets Touchy Feely With Ladbrokes
Net Entertainment has created the first-ever mobile games designed for touch screen smartphones, and the beneficiaries will be those on the iOS platform. 13 of Net Entertainment’s current back catalogue of games have been tweaked to allow the finer details to be handled via the presses and pokes of a few fingertips. Jack Hammer Touch and Blackjack Touch are just two of the titles available for iPhone, iPad and iPod devices.
Ladbrokes is one such bookmaker that will be able to offer these new games after the two companies shook hands on a deal that will see Net Entertainment games added to the suite of Playtech games that currently block the shelves over at Ladbrokes.
“We are very happy that Ladbrokes has selected Net Entertainment as supplier for a selection of our games to be distributed over their online market channels. Ladbrokes is one of the most reputable operators in the UK, and we are confident that our content will be well received by Ladbrokes’ player base,” said the Net Entertainment Managing Director, Bjor Krantz.
