Station Casinos offers sports betting mobile app with Sports Connection Mobile
Station Casinos is first to offer rewards incentives through Boarding Pass program
(LAS VEGAS) – Station Casinos offers the most innovative, rewarding and technologically advanced mobile sports gaming program to the Nevada gaming market with its Sports Connection Mobile. Coming off the heels of an extensive and successful field trial, Sports Connection Mobile offers exclusive Boarding Pass rewards points for every dollar wagered that may be used at all Company properties including the Fiestas and Wildfire Gaming. Additionally, a bettor’s Sports Connection Mobile account can link to multiple wireless devices, and offers the flexibility of depositing or cashing out at multiple properties. Sports Connection Mobile is free and may be used anywhere within the state of Nevada.
Sports Connection Mobile is available as a mobile app on smartphone devices and tablets including the Android, iPhone and iPad as well as through the Company’s Sports Connection intranet product via Cox high-speed internet (PC or Mac), which has been available since 2001. Enrollment is available at all Race and Sports Books, including the El Cortez Hotel and Casino.
In order to enroll, players must be 21 years of age or older and must first sign up in a Station Casinos’ sports book or at the El Cortez with valid identification and a $50 deposit. Guests have several options to access and download the application for free depending on their device of preference, including through the app store under the name “SC Mobile;” by scanning a special Station Casinos’ QR code found throughout various promotional materials; via mobile browser and the Sports Connection website; or by text using the acronym “SCM” to 72777 to receive a link that allows you to download the app.
Players may place wagers on all major sports through Sports Connection Mobile. The minimum bet is $5. Accounts may be reloaded with cash, credit or debit card in person. The mobile app offers parlay betting in addition to straight bets, teasers, prop bets, round robins and in-game bets.
“After going through a comprehensive field trial through the Nevada Gaming Control Board, we are thrilled that we received final approval from gaming and excited to offer this convenient and safe sports betting app to all Nevada sports book players,” said Art Manteris, vice president of sports book operations at Station Casinos.
Sports Connection Mobile bettors earn points through the Boarding Pass card program on every wager placed and the El Cortez customers also earn and redeem points on their respective “Club Cortez” rewards program. Station Casinos is the only company that offers the ability to redeem rewards earned through mobile sports betting that include dining and entertainment. Deposits, withdrawals and point redemption are available at any Station Casinos, Fiesta or Wildfire Gaming property and at El Cortez. The Boarding Pass program offers one point for every dollar spent. Additional point bonuses and multipliers may be earned every so often.
Sports Connection Mobile allows users to connect one account to multiple eligible devices. For example, a bettor may link, place and track bets from a smartphone, iPad or computer. This adds to the convenience for Station Casinos guests who use a variety of devices throughout the day.
Every guest who enrolls in Sports Connection Mobile will receive a “Quick Start” guide that helps them make their first bet within minutes. The website, www.sportsconnection.com, offers a support with a comprehensive menu that walks guests through all aspects of enrollment, wagering, help and frequently asked questions. Online assistance is available in addition to a hotline at (702) 495-3838 for players who prefer to speak with a representative.
Sports Connection Mobile technology and compliance platform was developed to address the regulatory and security requirements of virtual gaming to ensure a safe and efficient gaming experience. According to John Vidmar, vice president of gaming systems for Station Casinos, the IT project team at Station Casinos was committed to using ‘best of industry’ practices, controls and technologies in developing Sports Connection Mobile. “From our software, security and compliance to using LOC-AID as the geolocation verification provider, we worked hard to deliver a dynamic, safe, stable and trustworthy product that creates an optimal gaming and entertainment experience for guests. We’re very proud of what our team accomplished,” said Vidmar.
