4,500 Samsung TecTiles found in Caesar Entertainment hotels in Las Vegas

4,500 Samsung TecTiles placed in Caesar Entertqinment hotels in Las Vegas
Samsung and Caesars Entertainment have teamed up to place 4,500 Samsung TecTiles throughout Caesar's eight properties in Las Vegas. The TecTiles normally work with NFC enabled handsets to make your phone do certain pre-set events, like change the settings. In this case, Caesars and Samsung have arranged to have certain information appear on your handset when it is tapped against the TecTiles.

The TecTiles placed in the casino and attached to the slot machines will provide a tutorial, guidelines and statistics. You will find the TecTiles affixed to the slot machines at Caesars Palace, Harrah’s Las Vegas, Paris Las Vegas and Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. At some of the hotels, like Caesars Palace, Flamingo Las Vegas, Paris and Planet Hollywood, the TecTiles can show performer videos, showtimes, links to buy tickets and postshow specials.

Fine dining is abundant in Las Vegas (and no, we're not talking about the $4.99 all-you-can-eat buffet). The TecTiles will allow you to see menus and average check prices at dining spots in Caesars Palace and Paris. Those names include Mesa Grill, Gordon Ramsay Steak, Rao’s and Restaurant Guy Savoy. The TecTiles also will also show information about the stores inside the hotel and let you buy tickets to attractions like the Eiffel Tower ride at Paris.

TecTile boards at the entrance to Caesar's Las Vegas hotels will provide the user with a top ten list of events at hotels like Caesars Palace, Rio Las Vegas, Bally’s Las Vegas, Paris,Planet Hollywood, Flamingo, and The Quad Resort & Casino. With CES 2013 in town, it is a great time for Samsung and Caesar's to show what NFC can do, and of course, any NFC enabled device will work with the TecTiles.
