To maintain a casinos' integrity and avoid fines associated with failing to uphold state regulations, a new technology called Casino Track can instantly provide identity verification of barred players.
The technology gives gambling institutions the ability to alert employees when banned players are attempting to gain access to restricted areas. By swiping a person's drivers license or state-issued ID, personnel can check the patron against records such as state gaming board self-exclusion list and local permanent or temporary barred lists. Identity authentication
software may have prevented a situation that occurred in Winterhaven, Florida, when a woman received free food and gaming birthday vouchers using a fake ID. According to the Marco Eagle, Jennifer J. Jones was issued a $100 food voucher and $200 for free play from a front desk employee at Immokalee Seminole Casino after supplying him with a fraudulent ID under the name June Jackson. Jones was arrested by Seminole police early this week on grand theft and fraud impersonation charges.
