Las Vegas is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world. This is the home to world-class entertainment and cuisine as well as mile after mile of beautifully constructed and themed casino resorts. No matter why you may visit, though, the potential to win a lot of money on a hand of poker, a spin of the roulette wheel, or a pull from a slot machine is certainly a massive draw.
Of course, you can play card games and slot machines online. That might appease your fix for a little while but online games like these do not result in a cash prize. So its not really the same thing. Now, you can win credits at Las Vegas resorts—which is almost the same as cash if you really want to stay at a resort—but the experience is still not quite the same.
Still, there is a great novelty and convenience to playing Las Vegas style games on your mobile device and MGM Grand Resorts knows this. In fact, the company has just announced a new gambling platform that will allow you to actually place live bets on video poker, bingo, and slot machines all from your mobile device. Of course you will need to be staying at an MGM property and logged into the wi-fi to do it.
The Android app is called easyPLAY Mobile Tournaments and it offers mobile gamblers what MGM calls “interactive easyPLAY tables” so you don’t even have to use your own device to play.
EasyPLAY Mobile Tournaments are now available, live, at all nine MGM Las Vegas resort and casino properties. This includes the Aria, the Bellagio, the Excalibur, the Luxor, Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand, the Mirage, the Monte Carlo, and the New York-New York. Of course, you have to be at least 21 years of age to play; and the first slot contest only costs $5 to enter. For that small entry fee, though, you could win a grand prize of at least $10,000.
Obviously, this is a strategy to indulge gamblers even further. However, as a “tournament” these contests may be more lucrative for some players as the entry fee lets you play without having to continue putting money into the machine or onto the table. Maybe you want to keep playing at the buffet or are in a bit of a hurry to the airport and want to make one last ditch effort at a big win. Regardless, easyPLAY tournaments offer another way to win in Las Vegas.
