Casino Officials Seek To Reassure Online Gaming Safety
With online gambling in states like New Jersey gaining significant ground, many residents have started to take advantage of the new gambling laws. However, some still had concerns regarding credit card security and gambling addiction. In a bid to dispel fears several casino officials have taken steps to reassure customers. Officials at Tropicana say they are sensitive to the concerns that people have and would like to reassure its customers there is nothing to worry about.
According to Steve Callender, general manager of Tropicana Casino and Resort, his company is PCI or Payment Card Industry compliant with all the possible measures being taken to secure data with encryption technology. Callender said the company focuses well beyond the security of personal information. In addition, in his opinion, customers can control themselves online better than they can at land-based casinos. Customers can limit their actions before digging a deep hole. Gamers are able to place limits on how much they are will to spend online.
Tropicana claims its online partners have plenty of knowledge and experience in the online gambling industry. The company has partnered with Gamesys for the past 12 years and is confident of its professional approach, which when combined with security measures in place, make online gambling much safer. Callender reaffirmed Tropicana’s stand on responsible gaming. It constantly monitors the betting patterns of its customers and is ready to intervene in case of any potential problems. Tropicana officials claim not to have run into any problems since the launch of its online gaming portal.
As competition in the online casino market continues to grow, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa announced the launch of two free mobile gaming apps. Developed by bwin.party, Borgata’s online gaming partner, the apps are currently available for iOS devices and allows players in New Jersey to access the operator’s BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com from their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Both apps are supported by iOS 4.3 and are accessible via WI-FI networks.
Players have access to a selection of slots, table games such as blackjack and roulette, and a host of jackpot promotions. Users of the BorgataPoker.com app can access a range of different poker games including real-money, fast-forward and play-money.
The app comes with a ‘Quick Seat’ feature that allows players to choose a seat from numerous real-money Texas Hold’em tables. Both apps feature the Borgata iRewards loyalty rewards scheme where points can be redeemed at Borgata for cash, bonuses, retail shopping, and accommodation at the hotel.
