Interblock—Hologram Gaming Lounge

Interblock’s VIP hologram gaming lounge platform could be the future of gaming entertainment. Built together in partnership with U.K.-based Musion Systems, the exclusive master global licenser of Musion Eyeliner™, its holographic projection system, Interblock has the honor of holding the exclusive agreement for gaming holographic technology. The technology behind the holographic projection effect creates the illusion of life-size, high-definition, 3-D moving images on stage. All of the images used on the system are three-dimensional, but projected as two-dimensional images into a 3-D stage set. The mind of the audience creates the 3-D illusion via Musion’s patented modern twist on the Victorian stage technique, Pepper’s Ghost. Interblock Hologram Gaming Lounge (IBHGL) is a spectacular gaming solution, which incorporates Interblock gaming devices and the high-definition holographic video projection system (Musion Eyeliner). IBHGL consists of the following devices: Interblock Play Station; Interblock Game Generator; Interblock Animation Generator; Musion Eyeliner System; and Holographic video projection that can also be used as additional Player Information Display (PID) to the existing Interblock gaming devices. The new Hologram Gaming Lounge is definitely a product to watch in 2013! For more information, visit

SHFL entertainment—6 Card Fortune Pai Gow Poker

The object of 6 Card Fortune Pai Gow Poker is to beat the dealer. You and the dealer each get six cards to make two poker hands—a five-card high hand and a one-card low hand. The only rule for setting your hands is that your five-card hand must be higher than your one-card hand. The dealer must set his hand according to the specified house way. Each of your hands will match up against the dealer’s corresponding hand. You must win both matchups to win and lose both matchups to lose. There is no commission on winning bets and there is no player banking. If you beat the dealer in both matchups, your main bet wins one-to-one. If you lose both matchups to the dealer, your main bet loses. If you win one matchup and lose the other, your main bet pushes. The Fortune bet wins if you have three-of-a-kind or better, regardless of how you set your hand. You may also win Envy bonuses if another player at the table has a full house or better. You must bet at least $5 to qualify for envy bonuses. You cannot win Envy bonuses on your hand or the dealer’s hand. The Insurance wager wins if your best five-card hand is king-high or lower.
