Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort to Launch Mobile Application
Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort announces new partnership with Joingo for mobile application creation.
Land based casinos around the United States are quickly learning that mobile applications are the wave of the future. Gamblers want to have access to gaming options online via a mobile device due to the ease of use. Most every individual uses some form of mobile device on a daily basis and integrating casino gaming into the mix has become quite profitable for land based casino operators.
Operators have found that even if their state does not provide the option to offer real money wagering via online gaming sites, gaming sites can still be created. Operators have the ability to provide applications via mobile devices for play for fun gaming or a variety of others uses. Many venues across the United States are working with technology companies to create applications that will work for visitors to the casino as well as those located in-state. Some are even offering sites that can be accessed via mobile that work from anywhere in the US.
Joingo To Create a New Mobile App
The latest operator to announce a new mobile application is the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort. The venue will be working with Joingo, a mobile technology provider based in California to create a new mobile application for gamers to enjoy. The application will be launched via Android and iOS device and allow visitors of the casino to access a variety of options including account balances, casino offers and more. Users can even make reservations for events, restaurants or hotel stays at the resort.
Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Resort Director of Marketing Craig Fuller stated that the casino is confident that the Joingo mobile app will change the way the casino markets to customers for the better. The casino is excited to be able to reach customers in a new channel and use the robust suite of Joingo tools to reach and exceed the mobile marketing objectives of the company.

The application continues to push the envelope of what can be done on mobile devices to engage casino patrons in new and exciting ways that the gambling industry has yet to see.
How the Mobile App is Changing Casino Gaming
Mobile applications are quickly changing the way individuals enjoy casino gaming and stays at gaming venues. With the applications, like the one created above, guests have more freedom with game play as well as reservations for activities. Players can begin by arriving at the casino for gaming and set a hotel reservation from the gaming floor. No need to go to guest services. The same can be said for redeem casino rewards or incentives.
Being able to use the application, it allows guests more freedom during their stay. In the past, it could be quite annoying and time consuming to wait at guest services to use rewards earned during a stay or previous visit. Individuals also enjoy using mobile devices so casinos are seeing that guests are taking advantage of this new application option.
It is important for gaming venues to embrace the technology that is being introduced as well as readily accepted by gamblers. As 2016 comes to an end, the gaming industry is expected to begin 2017 by creating even more applications and utilizing the mobile technology that continues to be created. We shall see which operators begin to embrace this technology and how gaming is changed with the integration of such technology.
