easyPLAY Mobile Tournaments at MGM Resorts

Post by alpax »

Today, MGM Resorts just took their slot/bingo/video poker tournaments to a whole new level. They've launched easyPlay which is developed by oneLive that will allow qualified Mlife players to participate in the tournaments directly from their mobile device while they are at one of the 9 MGM strip properties. The prizes are for real money too. No more having to wait in long lines and having to button mash the spin button on slots or the deal/draw button on VP.

I suppose the Location (GPS) setting has to be enabled on the mobile device or tablet, and Geolocation on HTML5 webbrowsers to get by the checks required by the Nevada Gaming Regulations.
