(PRESS RELEASE) -- Harrah's Resort Southern California
today announced it will be the first casino in California to offer skill games and gaming tables from Gamblit Gaming, the leading publisher of real-money and skill-based games for land-based casinos. 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 Harrah's Resort Southern California Senior Vice President and General Manager Darrell Pilant. "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 Poker and Cannonbeard's Treasure:
- 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 3-D 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, which 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.
Pending final regulatory approval, additional Gamblit games will be installed.
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.
Gamblit Gaming machines have also been installed in Las Vegas
