Interblock is looking to raise the bar even higher at ICE wide range of automated, video, and dealer assist advanced multi-player ETGs (electronic table games) methodologically enhanced based on customer and player feedback, including the Big Six wheel, StarBar, Stadium, MiniStar Roulette, Trio, Pulse Arena, Dual Roulette and more.
Interblock Global CEO John Connelly said: “2016 has been a year dedicated to investing in all sectors of the business in order to build an infrastructure for the future. We introduced new, innovative technology designed to enhance the player experience and expanded our product portfolio, which has allowed any casino to place an Interblock product on its floor. Our objective at ICE this year will be to show our commitment to our customers by showcasing our most demanded products for the market; by introducing our newest products and features; and by sharing our data-driven information illustrating that ETGs should no longer be directly compared with the slot business.”
The MiniStar Roulette offers a smaller footprint than Interblock’s Diamond Roulette product line to accommodate any casino floor. The ergonomically designed MiniStar Roulette features super-comfortable techno-gel armrests, optional progressive jackpot systems, and fast result detection.
Interblock’s Big Six wheel scheduled to be on display at ICE will feature its enhanced audio and visual effects launched at G2E Las Vegas 2016. This wheel is not only the largest wheel in the industry, but is also the industry’s only double-sided wheel, providing the flexibility to add play stations on one or both sides. In a recent report, Interblock announced that the Big Six game is performing at two times the house average at two of New York State’s largest gaming destinations including Resorts World New York City and Empire City Casino.
StarBar, which was awarded the Silver Medal for the Best Table Game Product and Innovation for 2017 at G2E, is another game-changing product that will demonstrate its ability to connect to generators placed in remote areas of the booth. This innovative play station is playable directly from the bar’s counter and allows guests to play up to four games simultaneously, including popular video poker games and traditional table games such as Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, Craps, Sic Bo and more.
Interblock’s Diamond Stadium configurations will show how casinos can easily transform a dealer-assisted Stadium into a fully automated Stadium, ensuring that the section is always active on the casino floor, and can generate constant revenue even without dealers. Interblock’s Stadiums allow operators to maximize their floor space by adding dealer assist, automated or video generators, and even incremental play stations based on their growing needs.
The Pulse Arena, which boosts the Stadium environment into a multi-sensory, social gaming experience, will make its second appearance at the ICE show. PULSE ARENA offers players the opportunity to play all of their favorite casino games from the comfort of a single play station with a live dealer, automated games, or in video format. Its multi-game functionality lets players switch seamlessly between as many as four games with the press of a button—without having to cash out, change machines, or even go back to the menu screen to select a different game.
The TRIO ETG island, a new product which made its debut at G2E Las Vegas 2016, will also be displayed at Interblock’s booth. TRIO is made up of three 5-seater automated and/or video ETG products designed to transform any footprint, large or small, by combining and connecting popular games into one unit. At the show, the game will be configured with Blackjack, Roulette, and Craps and will offer two new progressives.
Finally, Interblock’s newest automated Diamond Dual Roulette, which also debuted at G2E Las Vegas 2016, will showcase its simultaneous multi-play and multi-game functionality and 27” graphic user interfaces. This product allows players to play two Roulette games on the same screen, at the same time. The game is composed of two different colored Roulette generators that work in concert, allowing for no interruption in betting.
