Stadium Blackjack Game on Shuffle Master Fusion Hybrid Electronic Table—SCIENTIFIC GAMES
September 1, 2016
Mohegan Sun is the first casino destination resort in North America to offer their players the Scientific Games Corporation Stadium Blackjack game on the company's Fusion Hybrid electronic table system. Scientific Games' Fusion Hybrid system connects four live-dealt games to Mohegan Sun's two on-property casinos in Uncasville, Conn.
Casino patrons in Mohegan Sun's Casino of the Sky and the Casino of the Earth can play two Stadium Blackjack games as well as roulette and baccarat on the Fusion Hybrid system on one of 61 seats at the casino resort. Mohegan Sun's 119,000-square-foot Casino of the Sky houses the two Stadium Blackjack podiums surrounded by a 41-seat, stadium-configured setup. The remaining 20 seats are centered on two podiums inside the 180,000-square-foot Casino of the Earth and features roulette and Dragon Bonus® Baccarat. All four games can be played concurrently and on any of the terminals.
Scientific Games' Fusion Hybrid is a terminal-based system that connects players to live baccarat, roulette and sic bo games, as well as the new Stadium Blackjack title. Fusion Hybrid is suitable for both stadium-style and smaller environment configurations. The system enables modular, configurable floor layout options and comes with a variety of exciting terminal lighting color options, as well as cameras at each live table display and player touch-screen interfaces. Betting timers are configurable for each of up to four games of concurrent play, providing a truly customizable experience.
Mohegan Sun's Director of Table Games Don Bowen said, "We are very proud to be the first casino in North America to offer Stadium Blackjack on the Fusion Hybrid. Our players are very excited about the game, as well as the ability to play baccarat and roulette on the same unit while making their blackjack decisions. Our regular roulette and baccarat players are enjoying the variety as well; being able to wager on several games at once is a new and innovative way to game, and our players love it."
Stadium Blackjack on the Fusion Hybrid is the Mohegan Sun's preferred method for dealing low-limit blackjack, because it increases the player's excitement by allowing them to play multiple tables from one location or seat. The game features shared starting hands for all players, followed by independent decision-making by each player as the hand progresses.
"Mohegan Sun has been a great partner in launching Stadium Blackjack on the Fusion Hybrid and our complete suite of titles across their expansive casino floor," said Derik Mooberry, Scientific Games' group chief executive of gaming. "We've really enjoyed teaming up to bring Mohegan Sun's enthusiastic players the innovative, compelling game content Scientific Games is known to provide casino operators across the globe."
