Home » MGM Resorts launches nation's first mobile real-money tournaments
MGM Resorts International has launched a mobile gaming platform, easyPLAY Mobile Tournaments, the first digital and interactive tournament to be offered by a regulated casino in the United States. Developed by mobile gaming tech company oneLIVE inc, the platform allows guests at nine iconic Las Vegas resorts to compete with other players in a variety of tournament games using their own mobile devices whether they are at the pool, sipping cocktails at the bar, or simply relaxing in their rooms.
easyPLAY provides the opportunity for guests to win thousands of dollars in cash and other prizes by playing in regularly scheduled tournaments of classic casino games including slots, bingo and video poker as well as fun social, casual and console games.
Guests 21 years of age or older can participate in easyPLAY tournaments from any mobile device, personal laptop, or the new InteractivePro Tables located throughout MGM Resorts’ properties once they’ve logged into a Wi-Fi network at one of the following resorts:
ARIA Resort & Casino
New York-New York
Games include popular titles from oneLIVE’s Charter Content Providers Spin Games LLC of Reno, Nevada and Touchstone Games Limited from the United Kingdom. In addition to the games currently available, additional unique tournament games will be added in the near future.
The first of many large contests is the All Summer Long Winner Takes All Progressive Slot Tournament. Guests who enter the tournament with a $5 entry prior to September 4 will have the opportunity to spin the wheels to win the minimum grand prize of $10,000.
“The introduction of easyPLAY Mobile Tournaments at our MGM Resorts properties gives our guests an exciting, new opportunity to play their favorite games while enjoying the best Las Vegas has to offer,” said Tom Mikulich, Senior Vice President of Business Development for MGM Resorts International. “The tournaments are extremely user-friendly, provide players with a variety of game options including slots and bingo, among others, and bring an element of competition that our guests will enjoy whether they are sitting at a bar enjoying a drink or simply hanging out by the pool.”
Michael Jabara, president & CEO of oneLIVE inc. said, "MGM Resorts leads the way with creating innovative experiences and programming for its guests. With our easyPLAY® Interactive Tournament Platform, MGM Resorts’ guests now have access to fantastic contests and tournaments that weren't possible before."
As required under Nevada law, easyPLAY Mobile Tournaments have been fully approved by the Chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board. Must be a U.S. resident to play.
