A Las Vegas casino has become the first to roll the dice with the much-touted Microsoft Surface, a touch-screen table that lets gamblers order drinks, watch YouTube videos, and even flirt. Harrah’s Rio hotel yesterday installed 6 of the tables, which start at $10,000, the AP reports. “Of all the goodies up our sleeves lately, this is one of the most dramatic,” said a Harrah’s spokesman.
The table comes fully loaded with programs like “Mixologists,” which lets patrons invent their own drinks and order them, and “Flirt,” which allows for cross-table chatting, about, you know, whatever. “The range of opportunities are fairly limitless,” the spokesman said. “In a different point in my life, I might use Flirt a lot.”
