Melco became the first operator in Asia to introduce facial recognition and we have been evolving the technology and our systems ever since, solidifying our position as an industry leader in Responsible Gaming.
Since the installation of real-time facial recognition security systems at every entrance to our gaming facilities in Macau in 2016, we have continued our relentless pursuit of the best technological infrastructure to support self-exclusion. We have commenced upgrading to the latest generation of facial recognition technology in our resorts in Macau, Manila and Cyprus.
MelGuard is the world’s first “Biometric Intelligence System” for RG, developed by Melco. The technology uses biometric indicators to prevent restricted individuals — including self-exclusions —from entering the casino floor, while complying with data privacy requirements. For potential operations in Japan, MelGuard technology will work in conjunction with the “My Number” card to provide state-of-the-art authentication for those seeking to enter the casino areas of the integrated resort.
