Harrah’s Resort Southern California announced it will be the first casino in California to offer skill games and gaming tables from Gamblit Gaming. Bridging the gap between video games and gambling, Gamblit brings interactive video game-like experiences for a more competitive, strategic gaming floor.
“Gamblit’s games and tables are evolutionary steps in the right direction for the modern gaming industry, and we are honored to be the first casino in California to offer the experience,” said Darrell Pilant, Harrah’s Resort Southern California SVP and General Manager. “The installation of Gamblit’s products will allow us to engage with guests seeking a more interactive gaming experience. Gamblit’s games and tables combine elements of the traditional gaming experience with elements of modern video gaming and we’re excited to be bringing this type of universally enjoyable gaming experience to Harrah’s Resort Southern California.”
To start, Harrah’s Resort Southern California has launched its first two Gamblit games, Gamblit PokerTM and Cannonbeard’s TreasureTM:
♣ Gamblit Poker is the perfect way to lose the intimidation factor of traditional poker while socializing and enjoying drinks with friends. Up to four players can play at a time, building hands by grabbing cards from the center of the table. Players can also up the ante by stealing cards from opponents in order to prevent them from completing their hands. The player with the best hand wins the pot!
♣ Cannonbeard’s Treasure is perfect for the player who enjoys skill and strategy-based games. A modern take on blackjack, Cannonbeard’s Treasure pits players and their pirate ships against one another. The game is focused on the community cards in the center of the table which allow players to build their hands and reach their objectives, with the first player to reach their goal winning the pot of gold. The game is fast-paced, full of excitement and has 3D ships shooting at each other! All swashbuckling will be done at the players’ own risk.
Gamblit Poker and Cannonbeard’s Treasure will be offered on Gamblit’s highly social and interactive Model G™ gaming table that can host two to four players for a competitive gaming experience. Each gaming table offers a unique, multi-player/multi-game machine with access to a shared 42″ touch screen, plus a USB charging port, purse hook and two cup holders for each player.
Harrah’s Resort Southern California is constantly pioneering new ways to be Your First Resort For Fun, and the arrival of Gamblit Gaming marks a new way to bring even more fun experiences to guests of the destination. Pending final regulatory approval, additional Gamblit games will be installed.
