Stay informed with essential Casino Games Protection Tools - Part I
I often get asked questions about how useful our software really is at detecting the casino undesirables in the casino industry. I can honestly tell them that I’m just an IT guy with military experience with no casino surveillance experience and I’m able to distinguish many well-known advantage players and cheats. I believe our software is truly one of the best tools they can use to minimize potential threats and mitigating casino financial losses. Why would you listen to an IT guy with no casino surveillance experience?
I experienced the value of our software first hand when I was attending a company dinner several years ago in downtown Las Vegas and I ran into a subject who was in our CID (Casino Information Database) listed as a well-known slot cheat. I recognized him immediately after his images were freshly engrained in my memory from previous SIN (Surveillance Information Network) alerts. I notified casino surveillance and within minutes security was able to apprehend the subject while in the act of try to cheat a slot machine. The casino property didn’t have our system, but quickly subscribed to our services after the incident to be more informed with the latest casino intelligence.
It surprises me in this day and age that most casinos operate without a quality games protection software, but instead choose to save a few dollars and risk being vulnerable to large financial losses. When I’m speaking to potential customers at trade shows and before they are finished telling me who hit them for big losses I usually already know the answer. How do I know? I just take a glimpse of our SIN Alerts and CID updates on a daily basis to keep informed of real-time casino incidents and their locations.
Today, a casino has the option to be informed with quality casino intelligence tools before possible big losses can take place or wonder what hit them in a reactive mode after the fact.
