Luxury gaming manufacturer Interblock has partnered with SKYCITY Auckland, a premiere entertainment and gaming destination, to install a stadium-style gaming experience and six additional electronic table gaming (ETG) banks, bringing a total of 67 electronic table game seats to the casino floor. The landmark deal is the first of its kind for Interblock, offering all-new ETG solutions to SKYCITY Auckland’s players.
SKYCITY’s upcoming installation will include a product mix of Interblock’s MiniStar Roulette and Diamond products, including Automated Roulette and Sic Bo, and the all-new Video Blackjack and Baccarat.
The gaming stadium will feature two automated Roulette generators, one Sic Bo generator and 31 Diamond play stations with multi-game capability that allows players to place wagers on up to three games simultaneously. Three games are visible to the player on the Diamond play station’s 27-inch monitor. A video wall displays each game’s progress and statistics along with a live feed of each game result.
Cameron Louis, Interblock's senior vice president of Asia Pacific, said, “Interblock is excited to extend our partnership with the world class SKYCITY Auckland. This strategic partnership allows us to showcase the innovations of our ETG solutions, with modularity and efficiency that only Interblock can provide. We are proud to have reached this milestone as a company, and look forward to the success ahead of us.”
Judd Hallas, executive manager of performance and analysis at SKYCITY Auckland, said, “The addition of the Interblock products brings a fantastic point of difference to our ETG offering. We are looking forward to delighting our customers with the experience offered by these terminals, and enjoying a successful partnership with Interblock.”
The installation will take place in 16Q4.
