Fair Share Goal Setting Targets for User Defined Markets
One of the newest and most exciting features of WGR's Casino Player Count Service™ is fair share goal setting for user defined markets. WGR's online player count service automatically calculates the number of players required for a casino to reach a series of fair market share targets (for example, 100%, 105%, and 110%).
Gaming Capacity Inventories
WGR updates the gaming capacity inventory statistics for the player count service on a quarterly basis. Client casinos can easily monitor capacity adjustments for both table games and slot machines for their casino, as well as for their competitors. WGR's website also provides a capacity trend analysis feature.
Equity analysts use WGR's Casino Player Count Service™ reports to monitor player counts for individual casinos owned by public companies, and to track entire market areas. WGR's player count statistics are also given consideration by equity analysts when forecasting quarterly casino revenues.
