Barona Debuts i-Table

The Barona Resort & Casino in San Diego, California, has launched new blackjack games featuring “i-Table,” the electronic system from supplier Shuffle Master, Inc. that allows for live table games dealt with real cards, but with electronic bets and payouts.

The chip-less i-Table operation is currently being offered on traditional blackjack games at Barona. Players use individual touchscreen monitors to make all wagers and verify all wins. The terminals also allow for high-odds side bets from Shuffle Master, including “Bet the Set 21” and “Royal Match 21.” Players have the option to make the side bets after a hand has been dealt.

“We are pleased that Barona has added our i-Table product to its floor,” said Shuffle Master CEO Tim Parrott. “Its electronic betting interface gives players access to a wider range of betting opportunities while ensuring speedy and secure game play. In addition, the ability to have live player tracking will allow players to get the recognition they deserve.”

Barona had already offered chip-less hands on Rapid Roulette and Rapid Baccarat, games in which stand-alone video play stations are linked to live table games, in addition to 75 traditional table games.
