Technologies Banned In Casinos


Thanks to new technologies that change almost every day, casinos must be aware of all new products that could damage their business. Cameras and staff are always on the lookout for any electronics that could be against the House.

Many devices such as digital cameras or cell phones with cameras are already banned in some areas of Las Vegas to prevent card counting or other forms of fraud, for example. One of the things that were added to the list of banned devices is Google Glass.

Google Glass is a handy type of glasses that allows users to do many things, including taking photos or shooting videos, and that’s the basic problem. This fact could again be used to cheat; the casinos are vehemently opposed to similar products.

Many land-based casinos are even using cameras and mobile signal jammers. That is why you will not be able to make a phone call on the casino’s premises.

Besides the cameras, mobiles and similar products, the Las Vegas casinos prohibited for example:

  • Metal and glass containers
  • Purses larger than 12″ x 6″ x 12″
  • Briefcases, backpacks, cinch bags and luggage of any kind
  • Computer bags and camera bags

Strollers, carts, or any stroller propelled by humans, electricity or mechanical means unless specifically authorized by a permit

Banned Technologies in Online Casinos

To secure the business, online casinos, like Trada Casino, also ban many technologies. Let’s take a look at some examples. If you are playing in any poker room, you are prohibited from using any tools or apps that can play without human intervention (“bots”) or reduce the demands on the human play. And players are randomly asked to solve an Anti-Bot verification.

Poker boots are nothing new. At MIT, for example, students programmed these bots as early as 2012, and today, you can download them to your mobile phone at the official Android iOS stores.

Any kinds of robots, programmed devices or AI applications are also prohibited in an online casino. What’s more, some online casinos even banning the use of betting systems or strategies on slots machines and other games of chance. In case of violation, the player risks cancelling the bonus or even closing the account.

Because each licensed online casino is required by law to confirm the identity of each player, therefore, the use of any software or application that can cover identification is prohibited, which includes any virtual private networks or anonymous browsers. Players using this software would not be able to even pass through the registration process.
