No Google Glasses allowed at Delaware Racinos
The Delaware Lottery and Gaming Commission is cracking down on technology and no longer allowing the new Google Glasses to be worn at their 3 racinos and casinos in the state.
The Delaware Lottery and Gaming Commission runs 3 Racinos in the state. Racinos are a combination of a horse racing track and a casino. While many only feature slot machines, the Delaware Lottery’s Delaware Park is one of the largest Racinos in the country, and features a 25-table poker room. Racinos combine the fun of slot machines and traditional gambling with the thrill of betting on the races.
Delaware Park is the largest Racino in the state. Delaware Park features seasonal Thoroughbred racing as well as year-round gambling facilities. The on-site casino has live table games, a 20-table tournament room, a sports betting facitility, and over 1,800 slot machines. During racing season, it is the best place to catch the fun and excitement of betting in all its forms.
The Delaware Lottery recently decided to amend its Minimum Internal Control Standards. With this decision came the choice to prohibit anyone from wearing or using the new Google Glasses in their facilities. People who wear these into the racinos will be asked to remove them ,or they will be removed from the premises if the circumstances fit.
Google Glasses are the newest in wearablee technology from Google. The Glasses allow wearers to record videos, take pictures, search the web, and more. It is a hands-free way to share your experiences with the world, including pictures from your perspective. Google Glasses were released for the public in February 2013. Google Glasses use Anroid operating systems , and give users the option to use any of the features available through anrdoid and Google. One set of Google Glass costs approximately $1,500.
Since it is easy to record videos and pictures without having to use your hands, it only makes sense that casinos would not want these around. Google glasses would make it easier for a poker player to cheat during a game, as well as allow people to take pictures and videos of private events. Prohibiting Google Glasses is a good way for casinos to monitor what information is being accessed during tournaments, games, and other casino activities. This will make sure that the games are fair and equal for everyone.
The Delaware Lottery and Gaming Commission strives to deliver fun ways to win for all, but wants to maintain a set of integrity that comes with gambling. The state of Delaware prohibits anyone under the age of 21 from being on a casino floor, and offers help for all who are dealing with problem gambling.
