|MGM MIRAGE announced today it is the first U.S. gaming company to offer wireless Internet access to several of its casino websites. |
Customers can now use WAP enabled mobile phones to book room reservations at six of the company's Las Vegas casino resorts, as well as access information about gaming and entertainment.
MGM Mirage may have its Isle of Man-licensed Internet casino up and running by the end of the year, a company executive said at Wednesday's meeting of the Nevada Gaming Control Board.
The Isle of Man, a 220-square-mile island in the Irish Sea, in September awarded its first three Internet casino licenses, one of them to MGM Mirage.
The company is currently choosing its computer systems, and anticipates finishing its acquisition of the systems by the end of July,
'It's possible we'd have everything certified by the end of this year or early next year,' said MGM Mirage Vice President and Assistant General Counsel Bryan Wright.
