Hollywood Casino at Greektown in Detroit is set to become one of the first retail gambling outlets to have robots welcome visitors to their gaming floors. The new deal will feature autonomous K5 robots developed by Knightscope, a California-based security camera and robotics company. It is expected that the launch of Knightscope ASRs will help prevent security breaches and send sensitive information in real-time.
PENN Entertainment announced this new development barely a fortnight after MGM Resorts International and Caesars Casino were hit by cyber security threats. While Michigan online casinos have not been attacked, some retail gambling venues have recently been victims of cash cage fraud or theft.
