eDeck: Real mobile gambling for Venetian high rollers

edeck.jpg

Even though I cringed with each pull on a $5 slot machine, I still like the idea of Cantor Gaming's new eDeck handheld gambling device. Available for high rollers (i.e., those who wrap chewed gum in $50 bills to play trash-can basketball with), the mobile gaming unit taps into the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas and allows gamblers to play slots, blackjack, and other games from the High Limit Slot Salon.

Why would this appeal to someone like me, who now sticks to quarter slots? Sentimental reasons, really. First, my husband and I got married at the Venetian. Second, my parents go to Vegas three to four times a year (no joke) because my mom loves to gamble. Third, my best friend lives in Vegas. And fourth, it's a pocketable device.

None of this has anything to do with the eDeck directly, I know, but something that combines technology with the Venetian and Vegas is just something I need to share.
