Foxwoods DEBUTS Interblock Arena

Connecticut’s Foxwoods Resort Casino has launched PLAY Arena @ Foxwoods, a customized version of the award-winning Interblock Pulse Arena electronic table game attraction, which places an arena setup of electronic table games in a nightclub-themed area.

The unveiling of PLAY Arena @ Foxwoods also marks the official reopening of the Great Cedar Casino, which now features a high-speed slot floor, upgraded high-limit lounge and scores of fresh table games aimed at enhancing the popular gaming area. The slot floor includes hundreds of new machines featuring over a dozen new themes.

Players are able to play up to three games at once in the Play Arena with a choice of live baccarat, blackjack and roulette. These live games are dealt by “dealertainers” located at the front of the arena who physically spin the roulette wheel and turn physical cards to determine the win.

If players are not close enough to see the generators from where they are sitting, they can watch the action through a live feed on their play station or on the massive video wall located at the front of the space.

“It offers guests the most fun and exciting gaming experience in a social setting where friends can play and win together,” said Foxwoods President and CEO Felix Rappaport. “The stress-free environment allows players of all levels to learn new games at a relaxed pace. It signals a landmark for the resort as Foxwoods continues to solidify its status as a national gaming leader with cutting-edge technology.”
