GeoComply Solutions Inc has praised its PinPoint technology for assisting Gold Strike Casino Resort in Tunica, Mississippi, in effectively launching on-premise mobile sports betting.
Last Monday, the casino and restaurants became the first commercial operators in the state to provide on-premise mobile sports betting with BetMGM.
The BetMGM mobile app makes use of GeoComply’s on-premise mobile technology, PinPoint, which allows for quick and secure wagering on the Gold Strike casino facility.
PinPoint’s General Manager, Sam Basile, explained: “To create a geofence that permits patrons to wager solely within the Gold Strike casino floor and restaurants, while excluding the hotel tower and adjacent parking is a complex use case that is only made possible by our PinPoint technology. We are thrilled to be part of this historic next chapter in Mississippi commercial gaming.”
Enhanced sports betting experience
Guests at the Gold Strike may use their own mobile devices to place wagers on the BetMGM app instead of waiting in lines at kiosks or terminals thanks to PinPoint. According to GeoComplay, this capacity enhances the sports betting experience while also enabling in-play betting.
Kevin Allan, BetMGM’s Chief Architect, added: “It is pivotal to our long-term technical strategy to ensure we partner with the finest in the industry and this is another critical first between our two technology teams. We are excited for our business and Gold Strike visitors to now experience our industry leading mobile sports app.”
GeoComply’s PinPoint technology allow sportsbooks to increase their footprint without incurring significant financial costs. PinPoint Bluetooth beacons establish an effective interior geofence using patented technology, allowing guests to place bets on their mobile devices while keeping compliant with state laws.
