Casino Tech and the Need to Embrace Newer Technologies and Gambling Techniques
From a business administration or file storage perspective, cloud computing has all of the benefits for the casino business as any other business. However, due to the highly regulated nature of the casino business there are some limitations. For example, any server in which gaming data is being accessed or stored must be physically located on property and not in a co-location facility or in the cloud.
One of my companies, Bet on Yourself Gaming, was recently working with MGM Grand and Golfstream (a virtual reality golf simulator) to develop and operate skill-based gaming tournaments and other games of skill. In non-casino installations, Golfstream’s tech stack was in the cloud but for this casino installation the servers had to be moved to a physical location at the casino property.
