Interblock e-tables have proven popular at Empire City Casino

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. Meanwhile, Mount Airy Casino Resort in the Poconos region of Pennsylvania recently installed its first Interblock game.

At Empire City, the 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.

At Mount Airy Casino Resort, executives opted for Interblock’s G4 Organic gaming device with roulette electromechanical generator and six play stations. A fully automated version of a standard roulette game, G4 uses air pressure to launch the ball onto the brim and a series of optical and proximity sensors to track the ball during its path and detect its final position. The fourth generation product includes a new-ball launching mechanism with improved dust filtering system, a completely non-pliable carbon-fiber brim around the Roulette wheel and a through fraud prevention system.

 “We’re excited to launch this cutting edge technology which we think will enhance the guest experience, especially for our dedicated roulette players,” said Vincent Jordan, vice president of marketing and player development at Mount Airy Casino Resort. “In order to ensure Mount Airy remains the best overall gaming experience in the market, we strive to feature the most up-to-date and most exciting options for our players.”
