February 4 2015 (Las Vegas, U.S.A.) – GeoComply is pleased to announce its agreement with MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM) to provide geolocation services for mobile casino and sportsbook products, set to debut at MGM Resorts properties later in 2015.
GeoComply’s technology will be integrated into on-property mobile casino and sportsbook apps to verify a player’s location before they play, in order to deliver the highest possible level of compliance with federal and state regulations.
“MGM Resorts has been looking for creative ways to bring interactive casino gaming to mobile devices for quite some time,” said Tom Mikulich, MGM Resorts Senior Vice President of Business Development. “GeoComply’s geofencing capabilities will provide an effective and efficient means to transform our casino floors in Nevada into spaces where patrons can use their cell phones and tablets for legal casino gaming.”
GeoComply CEO Anna Sainsbury stated, “We’re honored to work with MGM Resorts on this unique project – in-building geolocation has never been done before in this space. We have morphed our best-of-breed technologies used for Nevada poker and New Jersey into an on-property solution which can pinpoint the location of a player within a few feet.”
