MGM Resorts International has rolled out a new “Streaming/Video/Photo” policy for its Nevada properties. This new approach began in May and attempts to strike a balance between people capturing content and infringing on the gameplay or the privacy of fellow players:

In an age when mobile phone usage is so prevalent, MGM Resorts now provides certain allowances for table game players. People can text if it doesn’t hold up the action, briefly talk on their phone if they are not part of the current round, and take pictures of their own hands.

Content creators will be able to stream the gameplay if they get approval to do so beforehand. Patrons will still be unable to leave a device on the gaming table for an extended time period or take pictures of staff, gaming equipment, and fellow players.
