Scientific Games Installs First Ever Dealer-Assisted Stadium Gaming In Rhode Island


Scientific Gamesannounced a new installation of 48 Fusion Hybrid electronic table game seats at Twin River Casino Hotel in Rhode Island. This new stadium gaming set-up will allow players to play $5 Stadium Blackjack, roulette and baccarat all from one player terminal. These player terminals connect to live dealers, located across four podiums at the front of the stadium arena.

"We are very excited to add Scientific Games' Fusion Hybrid stadium gaming to what we believe is one of the greatest gaming experiences in New England," said George Papanier, President and Chief Executive Officer at Twin River Management Group. "These new terminals will allow our guests to play Stadium Blackjack, roulette and baccarat simultaneously without changing seats. This product also allows players to play at their own pace, with new limits and minimums."

"In the last five years, Twin River has expanded our table games offering, created new dining options, developed a poker room, and recently finalized the opening of our brand new 136 room hotel," said Papanier. "Stadium gaming is simply our latest endeavor to enhance our guests' time spent at Twin River and provide them with an all-inclusive gaming experience each and every time they choose to play here."

Fusion Hybrid connects players with up to four live table games from one player terminal. A touchscreen displaying four colored tabs lets players switch between and view live outcomes from each available game. This action-packed hybrid gaming experience gives players the opportunity to wager concurrently on up to four games at once with just the touch of a finger, super-charging the excitement and increasing the odds of winning. In addition to baccarat, roulette, and Stadium Blackjack, Fusion Hybrid also features sic bo, Stadium Casino War™, and Stadium Three Card Poker™.

"We value our great partnership with Twin River Management Group, and are thrilled to be installing the first ever dealer-assisted table game product in Rhode Island at Twin River Casino Hotel," said Tom O'Brien, Senior Vice President of Sales – America and Electronic Table Systems at Scientific Games. "We are very excited about this initial install and look forward to expanding the number of Fusion Hybrid seats across other Twin River Management Group properties."

Players can find 30 of these new seats located just off of the poker room on the second floor, and the additional 18 seats across from the baccarat pit, all of which connect to the four live dealer podiums in the stadium arena. Twin River's sister property, Tiverton Casino Hotel, opened at the beginning of September and also installed 18 seats of Fusion Hybrid.
