MGM Resorts Offer New Innovations For Gaming
MGM RESORTS INTERNATIONAL AND GAMBLIT GAMING JOIN FORCES TO OFFER GUESTS NEW INNOVATIONS ON LAS VEGAS CASINO FLOORS
Gamblit Gaming Unveils Skill-Based Casino Games at LEVEL UP Inside MGM Grand with Additional MGM Resorts Properties to Follow in the Near Future
LAS VEGAS (May 2, 2017) – MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM), one of the world’s leading global hospitality companies, and Gamblit Gaming, the leading publisher for real-money and skill-based gaming for land based casinos, today announced a strategic partnership to bring Gamblit’s innovative skill-based gaming experiences to several properties within the MGM Resorts portfolio, beginning with LEVEL UP at MGM Grand.
“We’re excited to continue to evolve the casino space through our partnership with MGM Resorts with its incredible reach and mutual drive toward innovation. MGM Resorts shares our objective of bringing groundbreaking entertainment experiences that engage customers in an entirely new way,” said Eric Meyerhofer, CEO of Gamblit Gaming
Gamblit’s technologically advanced Model G™ interactive game tables are now live at the LEVEL UP gaming lounge at MGM Grand providing a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience that brings an arcade-like sense of fun and excitement to the casino floor. The Model G™ game table, where gamers can play cooperatively or competitively in groups of two to four players, offers the convenience of player amenities such as a USB charging port, among others, at each of the four positions surrounding a shared 42” touchscreen. Gamblit Poker™ and Cannonbeard’s Treasure™, two of Gamblit’s most social and engaging titles, can be played on two game tables at LEVEL UP with more games to be added soon.
“MGM Grand has developed an exciting, interactive community gaming space that offers players the opportunity to compete against one-another,” said Scott Sibella, president and COO of MGM Grand. “We are committed to keeping our gaming experiences fresh and exciting for our guests and our partnership with Gamblit Gaming brings this vision to life.”
Darion Lowenstein, Chief Marketing Officer of Gamblit Gaming, said, “I grew up in video game arcades – and loved LEVEL UP at MGM Grand at first sight! Its fun and social environment is a perfect fit for Gamblit’s high-energy, arcade-like gaming experiences.”
Gamblit Poker™ puts a fun, fast-paced and skill-based spin on the classic game of Poker with the house putting up a pot that players compete to win. Each player starts with two cards which, as soon as the game begins, are followed by a single deck of cards shown in rapid succession in the middle of the table. Using a touch screen button, players have to quickly grab the virtual cards they need in order to complete the best possible poker hand. The player with the best hand wins the pot making for an extremely social, interactive and competitive gaming experience.
In Cannonbeard’s Treasure™ players compete against the house in an action-packed, fast-paced game of cards and skill. Using the same touch screen button, players build a hand by grabbing the cards they need and reach the target number first to win a chest of gold. The player who gets closest to the objective without going over, wins in this exciting twist on traditional card table games.
Pending final regulatory approval, Gamblit plans to launch new hardware and games at additional MGM Resorts properties along the Las Vegas Strip in the near future.
As the leading innovator of real money and skill gaming, Gamblit Gaming develops and publishes a wide variety of games that bring a casual, arcade sense of fun and skill into the casino market. Gamblit Gaming also works closely with top game developers to gamblify and publish its hit games into new markets, tapping into the lucrative revenue streams of land-based casinos.
