Interblock Luxury Gaming Products


Interblock, which is one of the world’s leading suppliers of electronic table games, has just launched StarBar, a play station designed exclusively for the bar top.

The bar-top unit carries the same elegant black design as the company’s e-tables in the Organic series, with an intuitive touch-sensitive display, multi-game functionality, online system connectivity and a secure, tamper-proof cabinet.

The unit can be placed as a stand-alone bar-top gaming machine with video slots, video poker and video table games, but also can be connected to external generators so the game menu can offer Interblock dealer-assisted, video or automated games.

In this manner, operators can use the bar-top units as extensions of hybrid or stadium-style games already in place, using the video feeds from live dealers with the automated wagering and payouts of the play station.

StarBar also allows players to interact with multiple games on one play station. Players can switch among up to 16 different games with one touch of the screen, without having to cash out, switch machines or otherwise interrupt play.

“Power Meter” displays on the unit allow operators to offer incentives to players based on predetermined criteria, such as a sweepstakes entry for every 10 games played. The casino can customize promotions through the StarBar terminal.

Available games on StarBar include video slots, all variations of video poker, blackjack, multi-hand blackjack, baccarat, single- and double-zero roulette, craps, sic-bo, keno, Pop ‘N Poker and Big 3 Six. Several optional side bets are offered with the table games.
