Better Control of Casino Security and Surveillance Operations are Needed

Due to increased worries about theft and fraud, the risk environment for contemporary casinos is always changing. Casinos have a high volume of financial transactions every day in open spaces with numerous entry and departure points, making it difficult to fully secure them. On busy evenings, it becomes challenging for the security staff to keep an eye on everyone's movements as many individuals pass through the gates and exits. In a recent casino theft fraud case, two employees of a Florida casino were sentenced in July 2020 by a federal judge in Miami (U.S.) for stealing USD 5 million from the casino by interfering with the gaming machines to generate credit vouchers. Such frauds and crimes cost the owners of casinos millions of dollars each year. The casino business is seeing a sharp increase in demand for cutting-edge security solutions as a result of increased security and surveillance concerns. Technology improvements like automated number plate identification and facial recognition have increased the usefulness of security solutions to make it easier to secure large casinos with high foot traffic. Casino operators are anticipated to expand their expenditure in acquiring cutting-edge security solutions for their facilities as casinos begin to operate regularly following the easing of prohibitions on public gatherings due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The systems provide wide coverage, low-light technologies, and high-resolution cameras to enhance visibility. The use of analytics tools like object identification and heat mapping enables operators to determine which regions of the casinos are most frequently visited by players. Utilizing these details, companies may target clients with offers and bonuses as they play their preferred games to increase sales. Such technology can be utilized to efficiently ensure social separation and prevent congestion on the casino floors, especially in light of the social distance norms demanded and/or mandated during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
