A new social gaming application will be launched by Red Rock Resorts for Station Casino properties located in Las Vegas Valley.
With limited access to online gaming options across the United States, many land based casino operators are leaning towards social gaming applications. Players want to have access to gaming in the palm of their hand and the only legal way to offer such gaming options is to provide a social application. Many operators are focusing on social online gaming in anticipation of legalization of online casino and poker gaming in the near future, such as legislation currently being considered in Michigan and Pennsylvania.
In Las Vegas, players have access to online poker gaming but casino options are not available. Operators who wish to provide a form of online casino gaming have opted for social gaming applications including Red Rock Resorts. The Red Rock Resorts company is the majority owner of Station Casinos as well as manager of the many properties throughout Nevada. The operator recently announced that in the second quarter of the year a new application will be launched known as StationPlay which will feature free online social gaming.
The new application was created in partnership with GAN, a developer and supplier of software for social gaming, content as well as services. The application is currently in the works and will fully integrated with the Boarding Pass program, an award-leading offering provided by Station Casinos’. The application will be offered via mobile as well as desktop. Gaming content from the Station Casinos property will be included in StationPlay which means players will have access to their favorite table games, poker, bingo, video poker and slots wherever they go. Tournament games will also be provided via the application.
With Station Casinos heavily present in Nevada, players in the state will have easy access to added benefits of StationPlay. Because the application is going to be connected to the Boarding Pass program, members of Boarding Pass will have access to the My Rewards component. Guests of the Station Casinos properties will be able to earn points that can be spent with gaming as well as non-gaming activities.
Station Casinos Executive Vice President of Innovation and Administration, Staci Alonso, commented on the new application for the gaming venues by stating:
GAN Chief Executive Officer, Dermot Smurfit, commented in a press release on the new application as well, stating that the GAN company is very pleased to be working with Station Casinos with the state of the art social gaming application. The new app, StationPlay, will provide authentic gaming for players online and was designed to provide a thrill of the casino for everyone while in the comfort of home. Guests will be provided the same level of gaming experience while playing online as they would if visiting a Station Casinos property.
The new app will be completely ready by the second quarter and members of Boarding Pass will be able to download the app via mobile device or desktop. Players can take their gaming on the go or enjoy games while in their hotel room via the property Wi-Fi. The goal is to offer a gaming experience from anywhere so that players can enjoy the Station Casino offerings when they are on-site, at home or anywhere else!
