Yonkers, N.Y.-based Empire City Casino, one of the largest casinos in the Northeast featuring 5,400 gaming seats, will expand their selection of the very popular, high-tech Interblock electronic table game units, allowing players additional options to play roulette, craps, baccarat, and sic bo.
These Interblock games feature live roulette wheels, electro-mechanical dice and real cards, making them extremely similar to the live dealer versions of these popular table game themes. The digital betting formats allow players to play faster with up to 80 results per hour.
“These games represent some of the most innovative technology in the gaming industry and generate nearly identical payout results for the player as the live dealer versions,” said Mike Palmieri, vice president of gaming operations at Empire City Casino in a prepared statement.
“These games are extremely popular and continue to grow in popularity as the market becomes aware of how similar they are to live tables,” added Ryan Murphy, vice president of marketing at Empire City Casino. “If you live anywhere near New York City and enjoy roulette, craps, baccarat or sic bo, you don’t want to drive hours when you can play literally minutes away.”
These additional games will bring the total electronic table game seats available at Empire City Casino to over 320 positions and allow table game players access to their favorite game any day of the week. The limits range from just $5 per bet up to $2,500 and the games are located throughout the casino, including in the new high-limit gaming area.
“We have opened a single zero roulette game as well as a high-limit baccarat game to attract the bigger players in the market,” said Palmieri. “Our gaming floor is very comfortable but also dynamic, which appeals to both the seasoned player and the more casual player.”
