New Jersey’s recently enacted law allows gambling over hand-held devices anywhere on a casino’s property meaning this is just the first in a wave of tech innovations that will likely boost casino’s profits.
Guests at one New Jersey casino won’t even have to get out of bed in order to place a bet. The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City said it will become the first casino in the United States to let guests gamble over hotel room TV sets, starting Feb. 18.
Its E-Casino program will let guests with player’s cards set up electronic accounts and risk up to $2,500 a day. Slots and four kinds of video poker will be the first games offered. The casino says the technology can be expanded to include gambling over hand-held devices anywhere on casino property, which New Jersey recently authorized, and full Internet gambling, if the state approves it.
