John Connelly, CEO of Interblock said, “We owe a debt of gratitude to the executive management team at JACK Entertainment for truly being a partner in contributing critical improvements to the initial version of the PULSE ARENA installed at Greektown Casino-Hotel. This success has led to new versions of software and leap-frogging technology that will be implemented in the Cleveland and Cincinnati locations.”
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Interblock, a company who shares our passion for innovation, to bring an immersive and dynamic new gaming experience to our Ohio casinos. Synergy Table Games has been a big hit at our casino in Detroit and we are confident that our Ohio guests will enjoy it as well,” said Brian Eby, executive vice president and chief innovation officer for JACK Entertainment.
Electronic blackjack games and Stadium Gaming installations are spreading across casinos around the country. Each installation is unique to the casino or casino company. For example, The Venetian in Las Vegas has 44 stations right on the casino floor. Meanwhile, the Rainmaker Casino at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut is in a room with 30 terminals that connects with their other stadium installations.
Stadium Gaming Is Attractive To Both Players And Casino Operators
The stadium blackjack games can be attractive to new gamblers and machine players because there’s less human interaction. Some new gamblers may find players with experience commenting on their moves intimidating. Video Poker and slot machine players might simply enjoy the solitude of playing machines instead of having human interaction.
Casino operators like the stadium gaming installations for multiple reasons. The casinos save money by staffing fewer dealers. These games usually replace the least profitable limit games in the casino.
Additionally, Stadium blackjack can increase how many hands are dealt. The extra hands help the casino operator generate more revenue. This can make a big difference when dealing a blackjack game regardless of the blackjack rules. The casino always has a house edge so more games in action is helpful for the bottom line.
More Stadium Blackjack In 2018
Stadium Gaming is still relatively new. Casino guest preferences are always changing. It seems as though there are enough guests enjoying these games. More casinos are adding the games. Existing casino operators are already expanding the space devoted to stadium game installations.
Casino operators are always looking for new ways to increase revenue and decrease expenses. Mohegan Sun expanding to a third stadium gaming installation should be a sign that this is profitable for the casino.
