Scientific Games has rolled out its Fusion Hybrid electronic table game terminals at Twin River Casino Hotel in Rhode Island, creating a stadium gaming setup where player terminals are connected to live dealer podiums at the front of the stadium arena.

The company has installed 48 Fusion Hybrid electronic game seats at the casino, allowing visitors to play games such as $5 Stadium Blackjack, roulette and baccarat from one player terminal. 

"We are very excited to add Scientific Games' Fusion Hybrid stadium gaming to what we believe is one of the greatest gaming experiences in New England," said George Papanier, president and CEO of Twin River Management Group. "These new terminals will allow our guests to play Stadium Blackjack, roulette and baccarat simultaneously without changing seats. This product also allows players to play at their own pace, with new limits and minimums.

"Stadium gaming is simply our latest endeavor to enhance our guests' time spent at Twin River and provide them with an all-inclusive gaming experience each and every time they choose to play here,” he added.

Tom O'Brien, Scientific Games senior vice president of sales, America and Electronic Table Systems, commented: "We value our great partnership with Twin River Management Group, and are thrilled to be installing the first ever dealer-assisted table game product in Rhode Island at Twin River Casino Hotel.

"We are very excited about this initial install and look forward to expanding the number of Fusion Hybrid seats across other Twin River Management Group properties."

Twin River's sister property, Tiverton Casino Hotel, opened at the beginning of September and has also installed 18 seats of the Fusion Hybrid terminals.
