MGM Resorts International Signs Deal With oneLIVE inc
MGM Resorts International have launched a mobile gaming interactive platform powered by oneLive inc. In terms of the partnership between the mobile gaming technology company oneLIVE inc and MGM, guests at the nine Las Vegas Resorts will be able to participate in numerous tournaments by using their own mobile devices.
oneLive inc by their own admission believe that their technology is an interim measure that casinos will benefit from until the online gambling industry is legalized throughout the US. Their mission statement on their Linkedin company profile says,” We believe that Mobile Gambling On Property is the immediate (0 to 3 years) revenue growth opportunity for forward-thinking US-based casinos not willing to wait for the slow (3 to 10 years) and painful approval of online gaming in the US.”
The easyPLAY Mobile Tournaments will offer guests the chance to win real money in cash prize while enjoying classic games like bingo, slots, video poker as well as the much talked about social casino and console games.
Any guest within the nine MGM resorts and who is a US citizen over the age of 21 will be able to play either from their own mobile device such as smartphones, laptops or the Interactive Pro Tablets that are located throughout the MGM Resorts’ properties.
VP of Business Development for MGM Resorts, Tom Mikulich commented on the deal,”The introduction of easyPLAY® Mobile Tournaments at our MGM Resorts properties gives our guests an exciting, new opportunity to play their favorite games while enjoying the best Las Vegas has to offer. The tournaments are extremely user-friendly, provide players with a variety of game options including slots and bingo, among others, and bring an element of competition that our guests will enjoy whether they are sitting at a bar enjoying a drink or simply hanging out by the pool.”
President and CEO of oneLIVE inc was equally delighted with the joint venture and said,” MGM Resorts leads the way with creating innovative experiences and programming for its guests. With our easyPLAY® Interactive Tournament Platform, MGM Resorts’ guests now have access to fantastic contests and tournaments that weren’t possible before.”
