The Future: Remote Wireless Gaming Devices

No more need to fret about all that wasted time waiting in line for the buffet at your favorite casino. Or those tedious talks in a convention room just a few yards from the casino floor. Help is on the way to make it possible to gamble any time - in fact - all the time.

Gambling tables too crowded in the casinos? By next year in Nevada, the casino action may be as close as a hand-held device like this one.
Gov. Kenny Guinn signed a law last month authorizing gamblers in Nevada to play slot machines, video poker, blackjack and other games on hand-held wireless devices from public spaces in casinos. The spaces include restaurants, bars, convention rooms, even swimming pools. Hotel rooms, however, are off limits, to make sure that minors do not get their hands on the new devices, which resemble personal digital assistants or tablet personal computers, depending on where they are being used.

Out by the pool of the Paris Las Vegas hotel and casino, close to the bottom of a 50-story replica of the Eiffel Tower, the idea had instant appeal. L. Dave Ross, a middle-aged tourist from Tampa, Fla., said: "I have no moral objection to the device. Sure, I'd use it out here by the pool. Why not?"
