US – Station launches mobile appBy Phil - 16 April 2014
Station Casinos launched its mobile application for smart phone users offering simplicity and convenience for guests who seek personalized Boarding Pass account and property information, want to make reservations or enjoy special offers and discounts at any of the Company’s 18 entertainment destinations.
The app is now available for download for Android and Iphone users by visiting the Google Play or Itunes stores respectively using the keyword “sclv”.
The easy-to-use tile design layout features 10 categories of information including: promotions, gaming, dining, hotel, spa, entertainment, movies, meetings and property maps. The capabilities include making reservations for restaurants, hotel stays, spa treatments and cabana rentals; purchasing gift cards as well as for looking up movie times and purchasing tickets. Meeting and convention groups seeking conference and event space can even request a proposal all from their handheld mobile device. The mobile app also includes current information about local Las Vegas activities such as shows and tours, along with a convenient means to purchase tickets for those venues.
When the application opens, it automatically geo-locates the user to the Station Casinos’ destination closest in proximity, but also highlights the distance the user is away from other Station Casinos’ properties.
Boarding Pass loyalty card holders will enjoy the flexibility of the mobile app as now players can activate point multipliers every day, check rewards offers, view point balances, follow status credits and activate drawing entries; all activities that needed to occur before at the kiosks throughout each property. Guests must be on property utilizing Wi-Fi to activate all point multipliers, offers and drawing entries.
A personalized inbox, tied to the guest’s Boarding Pass card, will share updates, discount offers and exclusive app promotions, allowing the guest in real time to redeem or plan for an upcoming visit.
The Station Casinos mobile app was developed by Station Casinos’ Technology team utilising the best in class mobile technology with the guest experience in mind.
“Guests can now interact with Station Casinos from anywhere including our properties” said Abe Hong, Chief Information Officer. The goal was to provide our guests with a convenient way to interact with their favorite properties and Boarding Pass account as well as to stay connected with the local Las Vegas community. We are only scratching the surface. Expect more mobile innovations in the near future,” Hong concluded.
Station Casinos continues to be a leader in gaming technology as it was the first licensed gaming Company in the US to offer legal, real-money online casino style gaming with Ultimate Poker in Nevada and was among the early adopters to mobile sports gaming with its Sports Connection Mobile, allowing customers to place wagers and earn Boarding Pass reward points on sporting events wagered through mobile phones, tablets and PCs.
