It’s official! The first Take ‘N Play mobile slot tablets have been unveiled at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots in New Orleans. The racetrack is the first slots facility in the world to take advantage of the technology to enable casino patrons to transfer their live slot play to a tablet provided by the property for seamless play in designated spaces, such as outdoor patios in smoke-free gaming markets. Developed by slot leader, Scientific Games, the convenience of the system is a big draw for customers.
“Fair Grounds is well-known for its continual effort in bringing new and exciting slot products to our guests,” said Tim Bryant, president of Fair Grounds Race Course and Slots. “In partnering with Scientific Games to bring the all new industry-changing Bally – Take ‘n Play video slots to New Orleans, we are proud to be the first in the world to bring the flexibility of remote tablet live slot gaming to our guests. We also want to thank the Louisiana State Police – Gaming Division for being extremely responsive, as we worked through the approval process for this new technology.”
Offering Take ‘n Play on a slot floor is simple from a casino operator’s point of view. It easily integrates with existing video slot devices, requires no modification to accounting or player-tracking systems, and can run on any supplier’s casino or slot management system.
Player security measures activate during remote play. When Take ‘n Play is triggered and the player walks away from the casino floor with their game on the tablet, the engaged slot machine screen changes to a monochrome display, showing a message alerting other players that the game is being played remotely and buttons are disabled. Credit and win meters are blurred so patrons cannot see how much money is being wagered by the player using Take ‘n Play.
“Take ‘n Play enhances a player’s experience and enables them to enjoy the game the way they want, where they want, on the convenience of a mobile device,” said Greg Colella, Scientific Games Vice President of Product Marketing. “This slot experience is completely new to players, and we are proud to offer it at Fair Grounds first.”
