The highlight of Interblock’s ICE booth will be the three new MiniStar products, which were designed to meet market and customer demand including the MiniStar II Roulette, MiniStar Video Blackjack and a MiniStar Roulette specifically designed to meet market standards for regions that require coin pay systems.
The MiniStar II Roulette will feature a unique ball-chasing light effects, a new sound package, durable techno-gel armrests, optional progressive jackpot systems, fast result detection and a small footprint to accommodate any casino floor. It supports bill acceptors, ticket printers, and coin-handling systems and is available with four, five, six, eight, or ten seats with either a Single or Double-Zero Roulette wheel.
A new MiniStar Roulette product will also be on Interblock’s booth, offering a new coin pay system. The difference between this product and Interblock’s standard MiniStar product is in the wheel, pay system and bonus system. The wheel features 38 slots with the zero and double-zero located on opposite sides of the wheel.
Finally, the MiniStar Video will make its debut at ICE. The MiniStar Video will demonstrate Interblock’s Blackjack game and its ability to be configured with and without a dealer. This platform also allows players to wager on up to three side bets at a time including Lucky Lucky, 21 + 3 and Lucky Aces.
“Interblock’s ETGs have become the place where all of the different segments of the market come together,” said Tomaž Žvipelj, Interblock Executive Director & Board Member. “Our expectations for this year’s ICE show are set high, and we look forward to exhibiting our latest features and functionalities to the industry.”
Interblock CEO John Connelly added: “For Interblock, 2017 was a year of creating a collection of products designed to capitalize on the demand being seen from players and optimizing key success factors casino operators have come to expect. We now have a comprehensive product portfolio capable of replacing entire sections of casino floors, designed to attract both new and existing players alike.”
Also on show will be Diamond Dual Roulette, Stadium, StarBar, Diamond Video Blackjack and Big Six.
Interblock’s Diamond Dual Roulette, available for Single or Double-Zero Roulette, will feature an enhanced sound and lighting package and simultaneous multi-play and multi-game functionality. Dual Roulette is a multi-game automated device composed of two wheel generators – one red and one blue – that deliver results for two separate Roulette games. The wheel generators work in concert, giving players the opportunity to play more spins without having to wait for the betting clock – ultimately driving more revenue for the operator.
Next is Interblock’s innovative Stadium configurations. The Stadium will feature a new tournament functionality and a portfolio of game content enhanced based on customer feedback. The product will be configured with two live table games that deliver Roulette and Multi-hand Blackjack and two video generators that deliver Baccarat and Multi-hand Blackjack. Interblock Stadiums deliver more hands per hour, a variety of table game content available from one seat and have the ability to switch to an automated or video gaming space when live dealers are not active.
The award-winning StarBar bar top will showcase its ability to connect to the live Stadium games. The StarBar allows players to interact with up to four different games simultaneously on one play station without having to cash out or change machines.
