LAS VEGAS – July 8, 2008 – M Resort, Spa and Casino property officials announced today a long-term agreement with Cantor Gaming, an affiliate of the global financial services company Cantor Fitzgerald, to provide cutting-edge mobile gaming technology to the casino floor and race and sports book of the $1 billion M Resort, Spa and Casino, which is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2009 on South Las Vegas Boulevard. While still subject to approval by the Nevada Gaming Commission and Nevada Control Board, the agreement stipulates that Cantor will be the exclusive provider of mobile gaming service to the M Resort and will operate the M Resort’s race and sports book.
Cantor Gaming will deploy a server-based gaming system, with full back-office infrastructure and an extensive portfolio of games. Mobile gaming will permit the play of familiar casino-style games, such as slots, blackjack, roulette, baccarat and poker, within the casino property, yet away from the confines of the traditional casino floor.
Utilizing Cantor Gaming’s advanced mobile gaming technology, guests at the M Resort will not only be able to play on hand-held devices in designated areas throughout the resort but will be able to bet in unique ways in the resort’s race and sports book.
“We want to provide our guests with the best overall gaming experience available. Cantor Gaming is an industry leader in the mobile gaming market and shares in our commitment to provide guests with an unparalleled gaming experience,” said Joseph A. Magliarditi, M Resort Executive Vice President and COO.
“We are excited to have entered into a long-term partnership with the M Resort, Spa and Casino,” said Lee Amaitis, Cantor Gaming President. “Cantor has long been committed to developing and delivering state-of-the-art technology to enhance the gaming experience. We are looking forward to bringing this advanced gaming technology to the M Resort.”
Cantor Gaming was granted the first ever license as a manufacturer, distributor and operator of mobile gaming systems by the Nevada Gaming Commission in May of 2006. Cantor was instrumental in the adoption of Nevada legislation permitting wireless gaming on hand-held, mobile devices in public areas of a resort casino.
