The world’s number one search engine will provide a visual view of the interiors of the gaming halls.
Although probably its latest product will be banned virtually from the entire Las Vegas city, Google seems to be very interested and willing to collaborate with the Sin City gaming halls.
According to the Las Vegas Review Journal , a Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority board meeting Tuesday announced a marketing plan that will allow prospective visitors to peek through casinos, And maybe even move from one room (or one floor) to another.
Those who have already visited this or that particular casino will be able to use this feature to find out some details that had escaped, while sitting comfortably in the chair in front of the PC, sipping a good drink.
Helpful? Needless? Soon to say it.
What is certain is that last year, the Las Vegas Strip casinos earned “just” $ 6.2 billion, losing the pole of world gambling gambling in Macau gaming halls.
And yet in 2012 at McCarran International Airport nearly 40 million people arrived – an absolute record – 30 of which set foot on the Strip.
For the time being, Sin City is keeping more or less the same numbers last year and this new technology is likely to be just another way to try and attract as many potential players as possible.
And it will not be the only one.
In Las Vegas, in fact, you are working on a project to strongly strengthen external surveillance on the Strip. According to local media reports, 37 new high-definition cameras have already been installed, just a few meters from the road.
The project will cost $ 300,000 and has already raised some privacy criticism, promptly rejected by law enforcement.
We close with another great technology: the famous “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign on the outskirts of the Strip will soon be powered by solar panels.
Las Vegas hunting for Macau
Sin City will try them all to recover the pole scepter of world gambling, but it will not be easy at all. Currently the comparison with the Macao casinos is literally impetuous: the former Portuguese colony figures out of the reach of any other high-concentration casino area.
They are far away, by now, when Las Vegas was the favorite target of gamblers. Today, the center of gravity has moved thousands and thousands of miles to the east and probably there will remain for a long time.
