Merkur Halle Goes 100 Percent Interblock

Spirit Gaming, the distribution partner for electronic table game supplier Interblock in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Luxembourg, announced that the new Merkur Casino Halle in Germany’s Saxony-Anhalt has implemented 100 percent Interblock solutions for both automated roulette and automated blackjack offerings.

Interblock’s Diamond automated solution offers both roulette and blackjack, and a software generator drives Diamond Video Blackjack with computer-generated animation. No human assistance is required for simulating the traditional table game.

Secondly, the Interblock Diamond has been integrated to solve the problem of uniting players who wish to smoke and those who don’t. By law, the smoking and non-smoking areas have to be separated in this German state. Nevertheless, the intelligent positioning ensures that players can enjoy automated roulette and blackjack regardless of whether they smoke or not.

Merkur Casino Halle makes use of terminals of two different monitor sizes, 21.5 inches and 27 inches. The technology is all interconnected, proving that casinos can integrate different Interblock terminal sizes very simply.
