The app was developed by the publishers of the American Casino Guide book, which has been published annually for the past 20 years and is the #1 best-selling book in the U.S. on the subject of casino gambling and travel.
Users can easily search for any casino by name, city, state or zip code. The app then gives detailed information on each casino, including: address, phone numbers (with one touch calling), room rates, buffet prices, games offered, availability of money-saving coupon offers, turn-by-turn directions, plus a direct link to each casino’s web site.
A special “casinos nearby” feature of the app uses location-based technology to show users a list, or map view, of all casinos within a 100-mile radius of their current location. Coupled with turn-by-turn directions, this is an especially useful tool for motorists traveling the highways and wanting to make a leisurely stop at a nearby casino.
An especially popular feature of the app is its “Special Offers” section which lists all of the casinos that have money-saving coupon offers in the 2013 American Casino Guide book, plus any other casinos that are offering special savings to users of the app. Users can search for offers by casino name, or they can use the map view which will pinpoint which nearby casinos are offering those special savings.
There are more than 200 offers listed in the app, including FREE buffets, FREE rooms, FREE shows, FREE slot play, FREE matchplay money, FREE drinks, plus many other discounts.
The app also allows users to read thousands of casino reviews that have been written by other users and posted on the americancasinoguide.com web site. Additionally, users can view photos of each casino, when available. Users can also post their own casino reviews through the app and they can also upload their own photos.
For casino-goers wanting to increase their odds of winning, the app provides a comprehensive database of articles detailing the best strategies for playing all of the most popular casino games, such as slot machines, video poker, blackjack, craps, roulette and baccarat.
An additional section of the app provides users with a library of “how-to-gamble videos”. The 35 videos, which have been viewed more than 1.7 million times, are hosted on the American Casino Guide’s YouTube channel and a new video is added each month. Casino expert, Steve Bourie, who is also author of the American Casino Guide book, serves as the host of the videos and gives tips to viewers on how to play the most popular casinos games, as well as how to use the best strategies for winning.
