A new digital craps table has been unboxed on the Las Vegas Strip which is to minimize touchpoints in the pandemic era. The table is known as “Roll to Win Craps,” which is a hybrid game and allows gamers to toss some dice onto the electronic table, which has integrated technology that provides different digital information about the progress of the game. All the players, separated by barriers created with plexiglass, manage all their bets from their individual screens at their respective stations.
The table has recently been installed at Harrah’s Las Vegas on the east side of the Strip. The digital table has been manufactured by Aruze Gaming America Inc., and it is the first of its type in Nevada, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Rob Ziem, president of Aruze, said that the installment of the table had been delayed because of the uncertainty for the onset of the pandemic. However, that table provided safety for COVID-19 implementing minimal touchpoints. He also added that the dice are the only thing that needed to be handled by both dealers and gamers. The table will give helpful tips to the players and offer guidance and directives to the beginners.
Technology Changes Casino
The hybrid craps table installed in Harrah’s is one among the few changes brought about by Las Vegas since the onset of the first COVID-19 in that state last March. In addition to introducing some new games and effective safety measures, casinos in Nevada have also implemented some other non-conventional concepts aiming to attract more tourists.
Park MGM is another resort on the Strip located near the T-Mobile Arena, became the first-ever smoke-free casino in that entire area. The Cromwell and Circa Resort in Las Vegas downtown only allows people age 21 or over.
Despite the steep slump the tourism sector has been in this pandemic period, industry experts are expecting visitors to return when they start to feel safe regarding the infection issue. David G Schwartz, a Casino historian, said that the city’s attempt to allure visitors would make tourists return to Southern Nevada.
