Based on gambling laws in the state of Nevada, gamers are required to visit a brick and mortar gambling facility to register in person before they can start playing online. But then, the current pandemic struck, and that led to the closure of all casinos in the state together with the introduction of social distancing rules, meaning that you can no longer just walk into a brick and mortar casino to create your online account. While the state has started easing its lockdown restrictions, it still isn’t business as usual.
In a bid to get more gamers into their online platform, South Point Hotel Casino approached the matter from an interesting angle which allows them to register new players and still abide by the social distancing protocols in place. The gaming company is now providing a ‘sign up drive-thru’ station for players who need to create online gambling accounts.
The drive-thru, which is only a couple of days old, is, however, only meant for new registrations and first-time deposits. Since Steve Sisolak, the governor of Nevada, is keeping sportsbooks and casinos on shutdown a little longer, online betting seems to be the only feasible option for a lot of players in the state. With this novel idea, South Point is ensuring that it does everything it can to make the registration process as swift and safe as possible.
The new registration station for South Point gave lots of players a chance to bet on last weekend’s UFC event, and with NASCAR and a handful of other sporting events planning to restart their activities by the end of the month, the timing couldn’t be better for South Point. The South Point’s drive-thru registration station is located on the casino’s premises at the valet entrance for anyone over 21 years old, without having to leave their cars. The drive-thru registration desks will be running every day from 11:00 am to 6:00 PM.
