Luxury gaming manufacturer and electronic table game market leader Interblock today, with Gila River Hotels & Casinos – Lone Butte, announced the opening of a new ETG gaming room at the property, which will feature several of the companies leading products.
Gila River owns and operates three casinos located in the Phoenix metropolitan area: Wild Horse Pass, Lone Butte, and Vee Quiva. The new gaming room at Lone Butte will feature Interblock’s Diamond Stadium automated products as well as their bartop solution, StarBar.
Interblock Gaming Vice President of Sales Patrick Hutchins said, “We are very excited for the opportunity to grow our partnership with Gila River Hotels & Casinos. Casinos nationwide continue to recognize electronic tables games as the third section of the gaming floor and the management at Gila River Hotels & Casinos has taken steps to capitalize on this opportunity.”
Interblock’s Diamond Stadium is an advanced multi-play and multi-game electronic table game space that gives operators the flexibility to maximize their floor space and profitability by adding incremental play stations based on their needs and demands. Lone Butte’s customized Stadium configuration will offer two fully automated generators and one video generator, giving their guests the option to play up to three different games simultaneously and seamlessly from one play station including Roulette, Craps and Blackjack. The stadium will be comprised of 18 inter-connected play stations, offering game specific side bets, an updated graphical user interface, and improved audio and visual effects designed to enhance the player experience.
Also featured in the new ETG room will be Interblock Gaming’s new revolutionary form factor, the Universal Cabinet. Interblock’s Universal Cabinets are innovative stand-alone single seat gaming devices with table-game features offering individual games of player favourite live table games, with the footprint of a slot machine. Players purchase credits through the bill acceptor and cash out through the ticket printer just as they would on a slot machine, but that’s where the similarities end. Lone Butte patrons will be able to play Craps on the new game type and control the pace of their game as well as the shaking of the dice.
“We listened to what our Electronic Table Game players wanted, so we’ve provided them a comfortable area where they can enjoy themselves watching sports on our high definition flat screens, all while enjoying a drink at our full-service bar,” said Ismael Barrera, Gila River Hotels & Casinos Corporate Director of Slots. “Gila River Hotels & Casinos – Lone Butte is the only ETG room in Arizona with an all-in-one stadium style platform, that includes independent Craps, Roulette, Baccarat, Big 6 station, and video poker. Lone Butte’s ETG room has great game selection, ambiance, and comfort, making it the best place in Arizona to get your game on.”
