Game Account Network (GAN), the London-based developer, and provider of enterprise grade business-to-business (B2B) online gaming content has successfully launched another Simulated Gaming™ website, this time in collaboration with Yonkers, NY-based Empire City Casino. Early this year, GAN had launched a similar free-to-play/pay-to-play online facility powered by its Simulated Gaming™ platform for the Foxwoods Resort Casino, the hotel casino complex owned by Connecticut’s Mashantucket Pequot Native American.
GAN CEO Dermot Smurfit is delighted with the early results produced by the company’s Simulated Gaming™ for this year. GAN’s Simulated Gaming™ technology has succeeded in increasing customer visits at land-based casinos, as well as in generating significant income from a new online channel.”
Actually, GAN’s simulated gambling works like a social network-based online casino in which users engage in betting games using virtual casino money as wagers. Yet, unlike the typical social network games, the simulated gambling technology is linked to a terrestrial casino to bring free-to-play online versions of the games offered at the gaming floor of the land-based casino. Each day, the simulated gambling site furnishes players with playing credits, which they can use as virtual betting money for the simulated casino games.
If the free play credits run out, a player can simply resume his or her free play after 24 hours or after receiving the next day’s fresh supply of free credits; or continue playing by purchasing additional playing credits. Players, who have accumulated the required number of won credits or purchased credits, are eligible to join the VIP Club and gain access to games exclusively offered in the VIP area.
Players who receive reward points, can accumulate and subsequently redeem them for the incentives offered by the terrestrial casino’s VIP Club Rewards Program.
About Empire City Casino’s Online Simulated Gambling
Empire City Casino is part of a major entertainment destination known as the Empire City Yonkers Raceway, in Yonkers, New York and currently owned by the Yonkers Racing Corp.
The GAN-powered Empire City Online Casino offers a selection of free-play versions of slots and casino table games, included in the wide range of Class III slot games offered at Empire City Casino’s gaming floor, and as furnished by top performing slot machine game developers like Ainsworth, Konami, Incredible Tech and Multimedia Games. GAN delivers the online games directly from its Nevada-hosted gaming platform.
Albeit a free-to-play online gaming site, membership registration undergoes age and identity verification in order to make certain the enlisting player meets the legal age requirement of 18 years or older, or the prescribed majority age deemed as legal in the player’s U.S. location. Empire City’s online casino is accessible and available only to U.S. located players.
Membership is integrated with Empire City Casino’s Empire Club Rewards Program, for which registering members sign up with their respective rewards membership information. Any reward points received by a member in his or her Empire City Rewards Card® are awarded based on purchases of playing credits transacted via the Empire City Casino website. Reward points are not in any way based on the outcomes of a member’s playing activity at Empire City’s online casino.
The awarding of reward points and incentives though, is slated to commence by the 4th quarter of 2014, in conjunction with the launching of new marketing campaigns for Empire City Casino’s online-simulated gaming facility.
