According to a news release, Resorts World "will be the first Las Vegas casino where consumers can utilize a digital login and cashless wagering experience at both slots and table games."

My first question was, what about cash?

Read the article. It seems like this is an intermediary step before truly cashless.

IE. Yeah they take cash.

Play+ will allow guests to connect to external funding sources like a bank account, credit, debit or PayPal account, and load their GamingPlay wallet. This solution will offer guests the flexibility to transfer funds in and out of their GamingPlay wallet and linked Play + account and will provide the convenience of transactions without leaving their seat or standing in lines.


So to summarize, (1) anybody who is on a losing streak will have a much easier time pissing away the rent money and (2) hackers will now have a new target that could allow them to drain someone's bank account.

I don稚 think I知 a bad person. But I believe in individual responsibility. If there is a way to make a transaction easier, I don稚 believe it is up to the business entity (casino) to be responsible for potential bad decisions of customers.

So as MD, is it your opinion that all drug addictions are a matter of individual responsibility? I'm not trying to be snarky or anything, just curious.

It would be my opinion that most are. I would never say all.

In general, I am for legalization of most controlled substances. My 租octor part does not override my 訴ndividual responsibility feelings. Change the word 疎ll to 奏he majority.

From a public policy standpoint the law opposes illicit drug use because junkies will not be productive citizens while on cloud nine and when hustling to get money for their next fix.

Maybe only allow the good drugs for those who can readily afford them ... like cocaine.

I'm cool with celebrities snorting up a storm but not crackheads in the hood out robbin' and stealin'.

Resorts World brings mobile payments to Las Vegas gaming tables NFCW
https://www.nfcw.com/whats-new-in-payments/resorts-world-brings-mobile-payments-to-las-vegas-gaming-tables/

Not sure how to buy-in for $28,800 at a craps table with this. Did I win that much on a slot machine or was it free play sent to my phone?

What good is a branded Play+ Card if you get thrown out of the casino? You'll have to go to an ATM across the street to get your money out. This card won't work at differently branded casinos.

Guess I'll have to go to a 7-11 and put $100 cash on the card.

Play+ load and balance limits vary by program. The standard maximum amount of funds you can load to your account is $2,000 per day, $4,500 per week and $10,000 per month. However, in the event you win a Jackpot, most Play+ programs will allow your casino operator to load up to your card痴 maximum balance limit.

VIP Play+ programs with higher limits may be available for qualified players, please speak with your casino operator to learn more.

While each program is different, the standard Play+ program allows your casino operator to load up $25,000 in jackpot winnings to your Play+ account. Your money transfers instantly, and is immediately available for use.
