Oregon casino opens iGaming lounge

3 November 2011

NORTH BEND, Oregon -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- With its attention-getting blue lighting, high-definition wall monitors and unique guest seating, the iGaming Lounge at The Mill Casino Hotel invites guests to step in to the future of personalized casino gaming.

In opening the iGaming Lounge, The Mill became the first and only casino in Oregon to offer casino gaming on iPad® mobile devices.

The new gaming system, designed by the team at Acres 4.0, allows guests to select from a variety of casino games that are available on the iPad® and connected to the casino through a highly secure wireless network. The wireless network allows players to take their personal gaming devices anywhere in the lounge to play with a group of friends or to simply to find a quiet spot to themselves.

General Manager Larry Close observed that personalized gaming is a significant factor in the popularity of iPad® devices, which makes iPad® -based games a natural next step for casino gaming.

“We all have seen how the iPad® and similar mobile devices have contributed to the personal choices and personal styles of their users,” Close said. “We created our iGaming Lounge in that same spirit of personal choice by using the devices as a way to further personalize the casino gaming experience for our guests.”

Players entering the lounge are greeted by an iGaming host who will provide them with a personal gaming device as well as help them get started playing the games. Special room lighting is in place to enhance the visual impact of the games. Customized seating in the lounge is designed for guest comfort and ease of play. Food and beverage service also is available in the lounge.

Currently, the iGaming Lounge is open from 2 p.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday and from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. In addition to general hours of operation, the lounge also is available for group events.

“The iGaming Lounge can be a great location for a party or celebration,” Close said. “Our marketing and sales teams can make all the scheduling and catering arrangements, including some bonuses for party guests.

“We really view this room as a whole new way for guests to enjoy the entertainment value of casino gaming,” Close added. “Whether they are with a group, a partner or on their own, we want to help guests at The Mill to create their own casino experience.”
