You can’t miss the surveillance cameras secreted all over casinos, but these aren’t the same systems you’ll see at your local convenience store. One of the most important advances in casino technology comes from facial recognition systems, where guests entering the gambling area are photographed and their visages are compared with an ever-growing database of known cheaters and suspicious people. From there, security staff knows who to keep a closer eye on when they play. The technology is also used to identify high rollers and favored guests so that employees can give them special treatment.
