CANTOR GAMING SIGNS DEAL WITH HARD ROCK HOTEL & CASINO
February 19, 2010
Cantor Gaming will be providing mobile gaming throughout designated gaming areas of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, under an agreement announced Thursday by the Hard Rock and Cantor Gaming.
Cantor Gaming’s mobile gaming device, eDeck, will offer Hard Rock customers the ability to play their favorite casino games such as table games, video poker and slots throughout public areas of the casino property, which includes bars, restaurants and lounges, as well as by the pool.
Cantor Gaming has also developed proprietary games for eDeck including XtraOdds Blackjack and XtraOdds Baccarat, with extra propositional bets that dynamically calculate odds based on the cards dealt, giving players an extra opportunity to press or hedge their bets.
Lee Amaitis, president and CEO of Cantor Gaming, said the company is pleased to bring mobile gaming to the Hard Rock.
“We’ve had an extremely positive response to eDeck since it was first launched last March at the M Resort,” he said. “The ability to play casino games away from the casino floor adds a whole new dimension to the Vegas experience, and the flexibility of mobile gaming appeals to customers who are already used to the freedom of using mobile devices in many other aspects of their lives.”
Hard Rock President Randy Kwasniewski welcomed the addition of mobile gaming to the Hard Rock. Customers will be able to enjoy all the Hard Rock offerings “all the while still able to bet and play casino style games on their mobile device,” he said.
“Mobile gaming reflects our values at Hard Rock: offering our customers innovative, creative and fresh ideas to complete a special and unique experience at our resort,” Kwasniewski said.
