MGM GRAND DETROIT ADDS EIGHT-SEAT, FULL AUTOMATED ELECTRONIC CRAPS MACHINE TO GAMING MIX
MGM Grand Detroit, in its efforts to offer guests the most vibrant and diverse gaming experience, has added an all new, eight station, electronic craps game to its casino floor. The property worked with the game’s manufacturer, Interblock, to ensure that it is the first casino in Detroit to offer the game and holds market exclusivity for 45 days.
“I’m thrilled that we are able to offer players their opportunity to ‘roll the dice’ first, and exclusively at MGM Grand Detroit. It is exactly what guests have come to expect from MGM Grand Detroit,” said Troy Hammie, MGM Grand Detroit’s Vice President of Slot Operations. “With its speed and the number of betting options, to the uninitiated player,’ live’ casino craps can be intimidating. This electronic game, with live dice, offers the realism and excitement of traditional craps with a bit less pressure.”
After all bets are placed, the game’s built in random generator shaker begins to tremble the dice for a pre-selected time. Once the dice lands flat, RFID chips built into the dice automatically determines the values and evaluates the game based on the payment table. Players can bet in one-dollar increments with a minimum bet of $5.00.
There is a camera built into the console that displays a live feed on the monitors at each of the eight playstations, as well as to the overhead LCD screens. The game has audio recordings to give the impression of playing traditional craps to make the player's experience even more realistic. There are three language display settings: English, Spanish and Chinese.
Other features include ergonimical arm and footrests and dynamic full-spectrum LED illumination. The machine also can detect the presence of a player through built-in infrared motion detection sensors.
