Macau-based junket operator Suncity Group has launched “Sun Finance,” a secure mobile phone app that reportedly enables the company’s VIP gambling clients to have real-time tracking of their rolling chip activities, account summary and win-loss history, according to a report from GGRAsia.
Suncity Group’s vice president of its information technology department, Celestino Ali, reportedly told the news agency that the new app that launched last week offers its gaming clients “secure account verification.” Secure verification was not a function offered in an app launched by the firm last year.
Ali reportedly told GGRAsia, “With this [new] application, clients can have the real-time tracking of their account balance, in whichever of our [club] venues they play.” He added, “Our customers also have immediate access to our 24/7 concierge services through the application.”
The news agency reports that Ali noted that in approximately three months, the company is looking to launch another mobile phone app, “Sun Travel.” Testing for the yet to be released app is underway. The app is reportedly designed to aid Suncity Group clients, as well as the general public, book hotel accommodation, transport, restaurant reservations and other entertainment in Macau or beyond.
Ali reportedly added that at some point, an embedded link to the “Sun Travel” app will be offered by the newly launched “Sun Finance” app, however, he reportedly described the former as a standalone product.
The firm’s IT boss noted that operation of the two new apps will reportedly allow “tactical promotions” to be performed on Suncity Group’s products and services, by identifying its client’s travel spending patterns.
