Mohegan SunThe Mohegan Sun gaming group will be offering a unique blackjack gaming option thanks to a new partnership with Scientific Games.

The latest rage in land based casinos seems to be electronic gaming. While some casinos can only offer electronic gaming options, others are taking advantage of the unique technology to see players enjoying a more streamlined and intuitive gaming experience. The Mohegan Sun gaming group recently partnered with Scientific Games to add a new electronic gaming experience that will connect four live dealer games to two casino properties.

The Addition of Stadium Blackjack via Fusion Hybrid

Scientific Games will be providing their Stadium Blackjack game via the Fusion Hybrid electronic table system to the Mohegan Sun gaming properties. The system will be connecting four live dealer games to the two casinos of the Mohegan Sun, the Casino of the Sky and the Casino of the Earth. Players will have the option to enjoy two Stadium Blackjack games along with baccarat and roulette.

The Fusion Hybrid system has the ability to offer all four games and features 61 seats at the casino. Scientific Games has installed two podiums for Stadium Blackjack at the Casino of the Sky which is 119,000 square feet in size. These two stadiums are surrounded by a setup with 41 seats which are in stadium style seating. The additional 20 seats are centered near two podiums in the Casino of the Earth venue which is an 180,000 square foot gaming space. It is these 20 seats where players can enjoy Dragon Bonus Baccarat and roulette.  However, players can choose any of the four games from any of the podiums, each grouping just specializes in a particular game.

Game Play Options

With the Fusion Hybrid, Stadium Blackjack provides additional excitement with the multiple table game play from one location. Players simply take a seat and play at multiple tables from their single location. Starting hands are shared by all players with independent decision made by each individual during game play.

With the terminal based system, players are connected to live baccarat, sic bo and roulette games along with the Stadium Blackjack option. With Fusion Hybrid, casino gaming venues can have stadium style seating for a dramatic effect or use a configuration that will work for a smaller environment. There are options to create modular floor layouts with terminal lighting in a variety of ways for unique coloring as well as cameras to record live table displays. Players enjoy the gaming experience with the touch-screen interface which makes for quick game play decisions.

There are timers for betting on the gaming options so four can be played at once with customizable features that every player can set based on personal preference. Don Bowen is the Table Games Director for the Mohegan Sun who commented on the new partnership by stating:
