Staff Writer Industry News 3,057

Hard Rock Casino has announced it will be the first casino in the world to present ground-breaking technology. The brand signed a deal with Softweave. They’ve developed the unique software that will enable players access to live slots from ‘the comfort of their home’.  

The Natural Progression of Live Dealer Games

Kresimir Spajic, senior VP at Hard Rock International, said that he is excited about the introduction of an entirely new mechanics for slot games.

He explained that with live slots, you could control real, physical slot machines located at Hard Rock Atlantic City. You can be anywhere in New Jersey using your PC, Mac, tablet or mobile device. For him,

It is a first-of-its-kind experience unavailable anywhere else on the planet.”

Real-life Slot Machines Controlled Via Internet

Located in a private room at Hard Rock Atlantic City, the machines use Softweave’s technology. They will allow slot players to experience popular land-based slot games that aren’t available in the virtual world.

The room has a set of cameras that allow the virtual players to see what’s going on in the room as they activate play from their devices. Like with traditional casino slot machines, players can play at one slot at a time.

“The psychology, there are brick-and-mortar players that have a fear of doing things online,” Spajic said. “This is helpful in transitioning them into online customers. This is a real, physical machine that they can see, almost like they’re sitting in front of it.”

Embracing Innovation

Joe Lupo, president of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City, stated that they are thrilled about the additions. They look forward to presenting ground-breaking and innovative technology as real-money gaming continues to evolve in New Jersey. “Bridging the gap to provide a ‘live’ experience to our online consumers is something we are not only excited for but very proud to be the first in the world.”
