Barona Resort and Casino Offers Electronic Blackjack i-Table Game

Mixing the energy of the traditional blackjack with the newest gaming technology today, Barona Resort and Casino's blackjack casino table games dealers are giving customers chipless hands and offering new side wager options with its newly launched electronic i-Table game on February 13th, 2010.

Created by Shuffle Master, live casino dealers and casino playing cards are used in this simpler version of the well-loved casino game. But there are no casino chips to think about as all bets are made on individual touch screens. The results are also confirmed electronically.

Mike Patterson, the vice president of casino table games operations of Barona Resort and Casino said that it is also are less intimidating and offers a faster game pace. Aside from that, players can also place side wagers with bigger odds on each card hand, including "Bet the Set 21" and "Royal Match 21".

According to Mike Patterson, once a card hand has been given by the dealer, all players also have the choice on whether to place an "odds wager". The faster game pace also means that players can make lower minimum wagers on blackjack games at the Barona Resort. Just as with other chipless casino games introduced at the casino facility earlier this year, Patterson thinks that i-Table Blackjack is going to be a huge hit with casino table game players.

Shuffle Master's Chief Executive Officer, Tim Parrott, said that they are very happy that Barona has installed their i-Table product to its gaming floor. He said that its electronic betting interface gives gamblers access to a wider variety of wagering opportunities while ensuring secure and quick game play.
