MGM Resorts has recently released a revised set of guidelines for the usage of technology at its Nevada casino table games. The amended guideline permits participants to exchange messages and make brief phone calls as long as they do not disrupt the game. The most major improvements, however, include photography and video recording, which now allow guests to record their experiences with certain guidelines and permits. MGM Resorts’ decision reflects the growing prominence of gambling-related content on social media platforms, and it hopes to appeal to a younger generation while also respecting privacy concerns.
Guidelines for Better Technology Usage
Players can now snap photos, record films, and even stream under the newly established policy, as long as it does not interfere with the game and prior authorization is acquired from the casino. The amended guidelines now allow visitors to photograph their hands for personal use, increasing their participation and enjoyment.
Prohibited Behaviors and Privacy Concerns
While the policy makes some exceptions, certain behaviors remain prohibited. Players are not permitted to hold extended phone conversations or photograph various gaming equipment. It is also not permitted to leave objects on the table for extended periods of time. Capturing photographs or films of casino personnel and other visitors is also strictly prohibited in order to protect their privacy.
Modifications to the Scope
This new policy has been implemented at MGM Resorts International’s nine casino resorts in Nevada, including prominent properties like as MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, Bellagio, Cosmopolitan, Luxor, Excalibur, New York-New York, Park MGM/NoMad, and Aria. In addition, the business manages hotel operations at Delano, Vdara, and The Signature at MGM Grand. MGM emphasizes that the policy is subject to change, and that VIP players, high-limit room guests, and those at designated tables would be given special consideration.
MGM’s Reaction to the Changing Social Media Landscape
The move to allow restricted video streaming and photography on its properties is in response to the growing popularity of gambling-related content on social media and video-sharing platforms. MGM Resorts hopes to attract new players, particularly from the younger population, by allowing customers to document and share their experiences in real or near real-time. However, the amended policy has been met with criticism from certain guests who believe that maintaining anonymity should be a priority in the casino setting.
