Four new, bespoke ETG areas will form the Interblock stand at G2E this year – with the company’s top-brass planning to woo US operators over to the gold-standard in automated table play.
[dropcap]L[/dropcap]uxury gaming manufacturer and ETG specialist Interblock will arrive at #1239 of G2E 2016 with a whole host of new products and features, as well as new key personnel in tow.
The company says that it intends to hammer home its core message to prospective customers: that Interblock electronic table games are an essential part of any casino floor.
“Interblock’s ETGs reach across gender and demographic boundaries to appeal to every type of player: not only drawing in the next generation of users, but also keeping existing players playing longer and more often,” said the company’s global CEO John Connelly. “Our objective for this year’s G2E is to share data-driven information that indicates ETGs should no longer be directly compared with the slot business. The growing incremental revenue of ETGs is driving new types of players onto the casino floor at rates exceeding other product categories.”
At the coming Vegas expo, the company says that it plans to showcase the “flexibility, reliability, and strength” of their solutions by way of four ETG hotspot sections: ETG Pits, Pulse Arenas, Stadiums and Bar Tops.
“Interblock’s ETG Pits are the perfect solution for casinos that have unique configuration needs,” explained Connelly. “Available in automated, video, or a combination of both formats, ETG Pits let operators transform underperforming areas of their casino floor, and can be customised to meet any establishment’s demands.”
The two Interblock ETG Pits at G2E will showcase multiple new innovations, such as the Trio: a visually impactful ETG island made up of three five-seater automated products, designed to create an ETG Pit-like feel for smaller properties with limited floor space.
Interblock is the only company that offers four Stadium Dealer Assist generators that allow six different game forms: Roulette, Craps and Sic-Bo, Single-Hand Cards (Baccarat and Blackjack) and Multi-Hand Cards (Blackjack)
Meanwhile, the company describes its Pulse Arena section as “revolutionary.” The Pulse Arena is designed to attract brand new players, while providing established players with a new experience.
Neighbouring will be Interblock’s Stadium – which allows operators to maximise their floor space by adding incremental play stations, dealer assist, and/or automated generators based on their footprint availability. The Stadium gaming platform allows players to place wagers through play stations, while the dealer conducts games on the dealer assist tables. It is compatible with up to six different game forms.

Finally, the company’s StarBar bar top is “unlike anything the gaming industry has seen:” an impressive play station specifically designed to maximise casino space while creating an exciting player hotspot that offers up to 15 different games. With its own internal random number generator, it can be configured as a standalone machine, can connect to external generators, or can combine both options.
