Cantor Signs Hard Rock

Cantor Gaming, an affiliate of the global financial services firm Cantor Fitzgerald L.P., has signed a deal with the Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel & Casino under which Cantor’s mobile gaming system will give patrons access to games on hand-held devices throughout the property’s designated gaming areas, including the Hard Rock Beach Club Pool and the poolside Rehab nightclub.

Cantor Gaming’s mobile gaming device, eDeck, offers customers hand-held versions of various table games, video poker and slots throughout public areas of the casino property, which includes bars, restaurants and lounges, as well as by the pool. Cantor has also developed proprietary games for eDeck including XtraOdds Blackjack and XtraOdds Baccarat, with extra propositional bets that dynamically calculate odds based on the cards dealt, giving players an extra opportunity to press or hedge their bets.

“We’re pleased to bring mobile gaming to the Hard Rock,” said Lee Amaitis, president and CEO of Cantor Gaming. “We’ve had an extremely positive response to eDeck since it was first launched last March at the M Resort. The ability to play casino games away from the casino floor adds a whole new dimension to the Vegas experience, and the flexibility of mobile gaming appeals to customers who are already used to the freedom of using mobile devices in many other aspects of their lives.”
