    Default Why Not Casino "Gift Cerfificates"

    Casino software providers are always looking for a new marketing technique, but one that would really be good hasn't come along yet.

    Why not make it possible for a person to buy a Gift Certificate for a casino, and give it away? I know there is always some issue about why something can't be done, but what's wrong with this idea?

    Seems like a good way for players to introduce someone to a casino they like.

    But I could see us webmasters using them as incentives too... Or rebranding free chips as "gift certificates" which affiliates could pass out.

    However, casinos have to be careful with money laundering and all that... it might be a problem unless there is a relatively small maximum value.

    Matt,

    "Money laundering" is not really an issue, since no casinos are licensed in the US. That's a US issue.

    Small value up to $100 would be great. Maybe in preset amounts like $25, $50 etc. It would make things so much easier.

    Chill,

    If your friend is already a gambler, going to casinos etc., then I can't see the problem.

    Several of the online poker rooms are doing them, and I wondered the same thing, Liz.

    Yeah I've seen some poker rooms doing it to Cindy. I think it's a great idea.

    You could offer it as an incentive for newsletter sign-ups or for your uncle who drives to Vegas to play Keno because he doesn't know he can play it at home.

    I really hope we will see more casinos offering it in the future.
