Gaming case study—Facilities
Statement of Problem
Casinos, bingo halls and other gaming operators are all facing the same challenge: how to safely welcome back guests while reducing the spread of COVID-19.
Presentation of Problem
Although many gaming institutions are slowly reopening their doors during the COVID-19 pandemic, they face multiple challenges such as permanent layoffs, a startlingly lower occupancy, cleaning & disinfecting issues, and fearful customers. The statistics are concerning:
During the second quarter of this year, commercial gaming revenues in the U.S. were down 79% when compared to the same period in 2019.
The National Indian Gaming Association reports that tribal casinos across the country could lose about $22.4 billion this year, or about half their projected revenue in total.
Decreased gaming revenue will ultimately lead to a decrease in state and local taxes from casino operations. This will have a trickle-down effect within local communities as funding provided from these taxes that is commonly earmarked for school and education funds, libraries, infrastructure improvements and local governments’ general funds will now be unavailable.
Some of the initial measures expected to be implemented include reducing maximum occupancy to 50 percent, reducing the number of betting positions at each table (such as reducing the positions at a typical blackjack table from seven to three and limiting craps and roulette tables to four patrons, etc.), and reducing the number of active slot machines or removing seats in front of them to keep patrons at a safe distance from other guests. While all of these will help protect the safety of the patrons and employees, they will lead to a prolonged recovery period.
One person with COVID-19 can walk into a casino and infect 200
Casinos in Las Vegas, Louisiana and Mississippi will be permanently laying off 3,000 casino workers in the coming months due to the impact from COVID-19.
Astronomical cost—Paying overtime and stocking up on cleaning supplies to protect against the spread of a microbe that can live on surfaces for an entire day is time-consuming and expensive. The cleanup costs following a COVID-19 outbreak can really add up. For example, a cleaning company by the name of Aftermath charges an hourly rate ranging from $750 to $1,000 for a team of three to four people, or anywhere from $1 to $10 per square foot.
Overwhelming cleaning and disinfection procedures—The CDC has a rigorous cleaning and disinfection regimen in place for public spaces that mandate increased cleaning. This also means the hiring of additional staff and paying for deep cleaning after a confirmed case of COVID-19.
Health checks—Many casinos are not required to perform health checks (temperature screenings). However, a fever is one of the signs of potential infection with the coronavirus and many casino workers are pushing for a bill to require health checks prior to patrons entering their establishment.
Harmful chemicals—The CDC has an approved list of over 450 chemicals that may be used to disinfect surfaces—most of which are harmful to humans.

Introducing the IX360
The iX360 is a fully autonomous, multifunctional robot that purifies air, eliminates germs and kills a host of bacteria and viruses. The robot creates a 99.9% sterile environment, giving both employees and the public the confidence they need to work and play in 100% compliance within state and federal guidelines.
Non-contact temperature screening
The robot can also screen and detect individuals with elevated temperatures—even in a crowd. And, because it uses non-contact thermal image technology, the chance of cross-infection is eliminated. By identifying who is at high risk, you’ll be able to take immediate action to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The iX360 dispenses our exclusive, antibacterial hand sanitizer with just a wave in front of the robot’s arm—perfect for busy casinos, hotels, restaurants and more.
The robot comes complete with a convenient drawer where users may disinfect phones, tablets, keys and more at the touch of a button.
When the robot’s battery begins to run low, it’ll automatically return to the charging station. After a few hours, the iX360 is ready to get back to work to disinfect and sanitize your entire organization. It’s even safe to use around people!
Easy-to-use mobile app
With the iX360 mobile app, you’ll be able to remotely control your robot, view usage information, analyze data and more. You can even share this data directly with the State and health department in real time.
Save time and money
Our air sterilization robot not only keeps your employees and customers safe from harmful bacteria and viruses, it also saves you time and money. The iX360 works ’round the clock and doesn’t ask for a paycheck, benefits or vacation time. We even offer leasing options!
We’re offering more than just a revolutionary method of disinfection and sterilization—we’re offering the opportunity to welcome back the public safely, economically and in 100% compliance.
