Slot Innovation At The Wynn
Wynn the innovator is at it again. Turns out the slot machines at his new Las Vegas resort will be bleeding, cutting, maybe even over the edge:
- First, the look of the slot floor is expected to be unique.
- Second, slots will offer bonus jackpots through a linked system, now a Las Vegas locals staple with Station Casinos and its Jumbo Jackpots but a first for an upscale megaresort.
- Third, the property has a new take on slot cards, one executives believe will simplify things for players.
Huh? We don't understand any of this. Unique look? What do you mean? Like those eerily glowing, red Bank of America machines taking over the Northeast--don't those machines just scream: "spend your money now."
Well, at least Wynn comes right out and explains the third innovation.
"Enough with the cards already," he said Monday afternoon.
Wynn guests will be able to use their room keys, called the Red Card, in the slots to gain credit for their play.
"We said 'Wait a minute,' " Wynn said. "We'll just use one card -- your room key. Simplicity."
Thank you. Can you please explain innovation numbers one and two now?
