I have an idea to pitch to the casino industry, I’m hoping Harrah’s, Sands, MGM, Wynn, etc are listening. I believe there is an opportunity for these companies to add a nice dimension to their existing apps for casino visitors. I’ve mentioned before that I spend a lot of time walking the floor at a casino looking for a blackjack table that meets the criteria I’m looking for at any given time.
Here is my idea – please give me a real-time look at every table game in your casinos. This would allow me to quickly decide where I’d like to play without having to search all over the casino floor. If I’m in Vegas and I select $25 minimum blackjack table it would light up how many tables are available at your properties that match my criteria. The same would apply for craps, roulette, etc. and I’d like an advanced settings option that would also show me other details like number of players currently sitting, number of decks, type of shuffle, blackjack payout, etc so I could make an informed decision before I walk through the casino or leave the casino I’m currently in to find the table that matches my preferences at your property.
This feels like an add-on to your existing property apps that wouldn’t be too incredibly difficult to develop with some integration to the monitoring systems which record this information electronically already. I’m sure it isn’t without some dev work, but if you can pull me out of someone elses casino or keep me in your casinos more consistently by making my decisions easier I think it could pay for itself in a reasonable timeframe.
There is my pitch – if it is already available please let me know where to find it. If there is anyone out there who can or will build this at their property let me know and I’ll be sure to promote it when it is available – also it would be nice to get hooked up a few extra comps at your place you do build it and it turns into a winner.
