CES Brings New Technology To Some Caesars Hotels

January 17, 2013 at 4:01 PM | by | ()

Coinciding with the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) last week, Caesars Entertainment debuted some pretty cool technology for their casinos. Actually, the TecTiles NFC (Near Field Technology) tags are only available at Caesars Palace, Harrah's, Paris and Planet Hollywood, for now. Before diving into what exactly this new tech stuff provides, we should tell you that it's only available to those of you with a Samsung Nexus mobile phone or tablet. (No iPhone, boo!)

NFC tags simply deliver information to a mobile device. By touching a mobile device to one of the tags, Caesars will be able to send details and information for different casino games, shows, shopping, etc. Through these tags, you'll be able to receive gaming tutorials, buy tickets to shows, and more. The NFC sign above is located when you walk into Paris from the valet area. The NFC tags have also been placed on slot machines throughout the casinos so you can just grab the information when playing a game.

Although the NFC tags aren't available at Flamingo yet, the Las Vegas Sun says there will be tags placed at the Wildlife Habitat at the Flamingo so we can learn more about the animals.

There are so many ways this technology can be useful throughout a casino/mall/hotel. Hopefully, Nexus users make use of this technology so it spreads to other mobile devices and more people can access it.
