Interblock has continued to expand its footprint in the Badger State in recent months, as the company installed its ETG solutions at Ho- Chunk Nation and Oneida Nation casinos.

Electronic table game market leader Interblock announced the placement of a 19-seat ETG pit including games from its Big Six, Diamond and MiniStar product lines at Ho-Chunk Gaming Wisconsin Dells in Baraboo. The property was one of three Ho-Chunk Nation casinos which recently underwent renovation as part of a $153m project.

“The ambiance of our gaming floor was impacted immediately after launching the ETG machines,” explained Ho-Chunk Gaming Wisconsin Dells’ public relations manager Dave Abangan. “We’re seeing utilisation from our regular players and frequently see a younger demographic enjoying the games.”

Interblock’s MiniStar Roulette, Diamond Big Six wheel, Diamond Craps and Diamond Video Blackjack make up the ETG pit on the casino’s newly renovated gaming floor.

MiniStar Roulette and Diamond Craps provide excellent visibility of the automated roulette wheel and dice shaker. Diamond Video Blackjack offers a Virtual Dealer with its new fast-deal build which has reduced waiting time for participating players resulting in more hands per hour.

Interblock affirms that the fully automated Big Six wheel is the largest of its kind in the industry. The double-sided wheel provides the flexibility to add play stations to one or both sides of the wheel.

Each Diamond play station offers a 27” high definition screen with impressive graphics and exciting side bets.

“New and existing play- ers alike are enjoying the features and ease-of-play Interblock ETGs offer,” added Paul Paradoski, Interblock’s director of Sales, Midwest.”

Interblock also recently installed a nine-seat Diamond Stadium and six-seat Diamond Craps at Oneida Casino in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The additional games bring Interblock’s total footprint to more than twenty seats on Oneida Casino’s floor.

“This Stadium environment creates the perfect introduction to Blackjack, Roulette, and Craps for new players while giving experienced players even more variety,” stated Rick Riehm, Interblock’s VP of Sales, Eastern US.

The fully automated ETG section provides new and existing players with an innovative way to experience table games.

Within the Diamond Stadium, patrons can play up to three games at a time including Craps, Multi- hand Blackjack and Roulette, and wager on exciting side bets. Three wall-mounted LCD monitors display trends, game progress, live results and a Virtual Dealer for Multi-hand Blackjack.

“This combination of Roulette, Craps, and Blackjack, presented in such a unique and engaging way, is something that we anticipate will really connect with players,” said David Emerson, slot director at Oneida Casino.

“We also deliberately positioned these new games in their own space, creating a casino within a casino. We at Oneida Casino are always striving to set ourselves apart from our competitors, and this new electronic table games stadium concept is a compelling addition to our operation,” he concluded.
