    First casino in US to offer this on a trial basis. Guests will be able to gamble on a 46 in. TV in their hotel rooms on VP and Video Slots by inserting their players card. Sounds really dumb to me ,but what do I know.

    It will catch on. I play keno for 25 games at a time and watch on TV in the room when I retire for the evening. This isn't that much different.

    I concur, it will catch on. For the casino, it is low cost, high return. The security and making sure there is no way to cheat the system would be the most concern for the casino.

    So does that mean "the Eye in the Sky" will be watching what goes on inside the hotel rooms too? :evillaugh

    Wow just read an article on this and its pretty surprising. Especially the part about them allowing you to risk $2500 per day on this system. For a pilot program like this I would have guessed they'd make it really small but I'm sure $2500 per day is well above the average daily bankroll of machine players even at the Borgata.

    Anyway while I find it kind of strange and hope I wouldn't use it I wish them luck just because its the Borgata. They should be a model for all casinos! Its as nice and high-end as the Wynn/Bellagio type of casinos but with good gaming conditions at all levels. I haven't been back there since I started playing VP a few months ago but vpFree2 shows they have full-pay at pretty much all denominations and posters on the VP boards rave about the good paytables there.

    How would they know who is playing? Your 13 year old kid could use your setup while you're down at spa and lose $1,000 while you're gone.

    The article states you'll need to use your players club PIN along with a temporary password provided to you when you set up the account to play on the new system. Though you're still right if someone's kid used their setup the casino wouldn't know. Lots of kids know their parents PIN for things and the temporary password is easy to get since they'll probably have it printed on something for you. That along with potential technical problems with the system is why I'm surprised they'd allow $2500 per day on it. I would have thought they'd start smaller with like $500 per day or something.

    Maybe it will catch on

    The idea really doesnt appeal to me at all,but I'm not most people either.I generally go back to the room to get away from gambling for a while. I enjoy being at a VP bar,having a few drinks and maybe quaking with some other people. Gambling on a tv in a hotel room would make me feel like some kind of 'mole person" ,but if I won I'd be a happy mole.Good luck to all who try this.
