Penn National Gaming, one of the key players in the US gaming and gambling industry has inked a partnership deal with Interblock, a US-based game developer company.
According to the new partnership deal, Interblock will install its product portfolio including blackjack, baccarat, and roulette in over 20 different Penn National-owned and operated venues across the country.
In a statement to the press, Interblock Chief Executive Officer (CEO) John Connelly, Interblock, said: “Penn National has long been regarded as one of the leading operators in North America, and Interblock’s ability to work with an operator of this caliber is incredibly fortunate for our company.”
“We intend to use a combination of technology and innovation to help Penn reduce operating expenses across their properties while increasing revenue. This partnership allows for Interblock to introduce several product segments designed for various casinos within the Penn portfolio. Everything from stadiums to standalone units will be utilized to address the demands within each region,” he added.
Connelly also thanked Penn National Gaming for the opportunity.
Earlier this week Penn National gaming announced to initiate procedures to shut down operations at Resorts Casino Tunica. The company said that the increasing competition from gambling expansion in Arkansas has made it difficult to continue operations.
According to the deal, Penn National Gaming also has some exclusive rights over some of the gaming provider’s portfolio. While Interblock’s collection of games will be installed at over 20 different Penn Gaming properties, the first phase of installations will see Hollywood Casino and Hotel Lawrenceburg, Ameristar Casino Hotel East Chicago and Hollywood Casino Toledo include the gaming provider’s portfolio of games.
Dan Cherry, vice president of gaming operations for Penn National Gaming said: “We’ve long been fans of Interblock’s electronic table games products, and are pleased to be able to offer them at more than 20 of our company’s leading properties.”
