ECA ECA to Highlight the Positive Impact of Licensed Casino IndustryReading Time: 1 minute

 

The European Casino Association (ECA) is going to launch a campaign which will highlight the positive impact of the licensed industry for economies and societies.

The campaign will highlight areas such as direct and indirect employment, economic impact, compliance, promotion of tourism, societal contribution, heritage conservation and so on.

“As the association representing the sector across almost 30 countries across Europe, we are proud to see our industry’s positive impact on the ground. The campaign will demonstrate those areas in which the licensed land-based casino industry plays a positive role for European economies and societies. A land-based casino is an economic motor that other businesses benefit from, such as hotels, construction companies and other suppliers. This makes casinos an integrated part of the local economy,” ECA Chairman Per Jaldung said.

“As an industry, we are also closely concerned with the issues of compliance, anti-money laundering, responsible gambling and tackling illegal offline and online gambling. We are committed to closely working with policy-makers and all stakeholders in these areas to develop policy in the best interest of consumers and citizens, as well as maintain and extend our positive social and economic impact,” Per Jaldung added.

Plaza Hotel & Casino to give away vintage coin operated slot and video poker machines in October

Plaza-giveaway Plaza Hotel & Casino to give away vintage coin operated slot and video poker machines in OctoberReading Time: 1 minute

 

Paying homage to its vintage Vegas gambling roots, the Plaza Hotel & Casino will have two special casino contests to give away a dozen classic coin machines, including traditional slot, keno and video poker games, some of which are more than 25 years old.

While the coin machines like Joker Poker, Deuces Wild and Catch the Heat have nostalgic popularity, they are not compatible with new slot technologies and cannot track points and play. The vintage machines have also become increasingly harder to maintain. As a result, the Plaza will be taking them out of service and giving them away as part of two casino promotions in October.

A video poker tournament will occur every Tuesday in October. The winner of each week’s tournament will receive a classic coin operated video poker machine as the grand prize. In addition, the Plaza will host a points challenge from Oct. 1 through Oct. 29. Players can earn points throughout the month playing reel slots, video poker and video keno. The eight players with the highest points accumulated over the month will win a coin machine (keno, slot or video poker game).

“These machines are a part of Vegas history, and we wanted to give our locals a chance to have their own piece of our city’s great legacy,” said Jonathan Jossel, CEO of the Plaza Hotel & Casino.

To be eligible to win a machine, participants must be Nevada residents with valid Nevada ID, 21-years of age or older, and members of the Plaza’s Royal Rewards players club. Winners will have seven days to pick up their coin machine and will be responsible for future maintenance. Full contest rules are online.
