Learn more about our Safe + Sound Program and understand what changes to expect on the casino floor.
How Have Casinos Evolved?
No matter what kind of technology you’re using, whether that’s your cell phone, your computer, or even your favorite slot machine, there’s no doubt that technologies have dramatically changed overtime. The evolution from flip phone to touchscreen might look like the most evolutionary shift, but there’s a much bigger change that is taking up the spotlight and that’s the gambling industry.
In the beginning, cards were the gambling game of choice, specifically poker. But with the ever advancing internet capabilities, casinos have no choice but to keep up with the trend and give the gamers what they never thought they needed. With the technology of today, players can find and select their new favorite game online before advancing to the casino floor. In addition to getting gamblers excited to play the game before ever even stepping on the floor, casinos can now offer new and exciting games based on the technology that continues to evolve. With everything from new and improved animations and graphics to popular themes and characters, casino technology offers visitors a unique experience every time they visit.
So what makes Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sacramento at Fire Mountain unique? On top of the many amenities and services this Hard Rock location has to offer, the casino floor continues to evolve based on what the customer needs! In addition to our Safe + Sound Program in light of the current health crisis, Hard Rock Sacramento continues to keep things interesting on the gaming floor through the offerings listed below.
One piece of slot machine technology that we have here at Hard Rock at Fire Mountain is our Self-Pay Jackpot™ Program. This newly enhanced way to play slots makes it simple, fast, and convenient to transfer your slot jackpot to different slot machines while ensuring your funds are safe and secure.
Simply choose your favorite slot machine, insert your Wild Card, and input your PIN. The digital screen on the slot machine will give you specific instructions for downloading your jackpot, which will appear as a credit in the credit meter. Any remaining winnings can be printed on a ticket right at the slot machine, which you may then cash out at the Casino Cashier or use in another slot machine in an effort to win even more!
Your funds will be safe and secure, even if you lose your Wild Card. This slot machine technology adopts the same method that is used with your debit card: your jackpot cannot be accessed without your PIN. Your PIN should be kept confidential and should not be shared with anyone in order to ensure security.
You can apply to participate in the Self-Pay Jackpot™ Program for free at the Casino Credit Office, Casino Cashier, or with a slot customer service representative on the casino floor. You will need to provide a Wild Card and two (2) forms of government-issued ID (at least one with a photo), along with a completed and signed application, stating you agree to the terms and conditions.
This casinotech puts Hard Rock at Fire Mountain above the rest. The Self-Pay Jackpot™ Program gives you the power to transfer your slot jackpot directly to your favorite slot machine, eliminating the time you usually wait to receive your jackpot. This simple to use program is a fast and convenient way to put the power of playing slots back into your own hands.
Other Technology Perks
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino at Fire Mountain is committed to providing our guests with the best experience possible. One way we are fulfilling that promise is by constantly upgrading our casinotech and enhancing our slot machine technology.
Power Bank™ brings you new slot machine technology by giving you the power to transfer funds at any slot machine. You have the opportunity to download funds from your Casino Credit Account right at the slot machine! You don’t need to worry about carrying cash, visiting ATMs, or obtaining cash advances to get your game on. With this new casino technology, slots provide you the convenience of controlling the amount of money you want to withdraw and allow you to view the balances of your Casino Credit Account easily and quickly.
To use your Power Bank™ simply insert your Wild Card into any slot machine and input your confidential PIN. Follow the prompt on the slot machine’s digital screen to download any amount from your Casino Credit Account, which will appear as a credit in the credit meter. Each time funds are downloaded from your Casino Credit Account, they will automatically be deducted from your available credit balance.
Having a line of Casino Credit is a convenient, safe, and fast way to elevate your slot machine play. The funds in your Casino Credit Account are restricted funds that must be used for Casino play and cannot be cashed out. To establish your own line of Casino Credit and open a Casino Credit Account, you must fill out a credit application at the Casino Credit Office or complete an online application here. To participate in Power Bank™ you must have a valid Wild Card, a Casino Credit Account in good standing, two (2) forms of government-issued ID (at least one with a photo), along with the completed and signed credit application.
