Harrah's Las Vegas installs Strip's first hybrid digital craps table
arrah's Las Vegas has introduced a hybrid craps table that uses a digital board and payment system with live dice — Aruze Gaming America's Roll to Win Craps.
Caesars Entertainment, which owns Harrah's, said it is the only game of its kind on the Las Vegas Strip. It allows players to shoot live dice across a large LED playing field and place all their bets electronically.
"We anticipate our guests will gravitate towards the game’s approachability and exciting features," Dan Walsh, senior vice president and general manager of Harrah's Las Vegas, said in a press release. "We strive to provide the best products and technology to our customers, whether experienced or novice, and Roll to Win Craps offers that exclusively at Harrah’s Las Vegas."
Recently awarded the Platinum Award for Most Innovative Gaming Technology by Casino Journal, Roll to Win Craps saw its first install at Harrah’s Cherokee Hotel and Casino in North Carolina, a sister property to Harrah’s Las Vegas.
The game uses the same footprint as a standard craps table, along with LED panels for graphics and animations, as players shoot live dice across the field. No physical chips are used, as players can make their bets on their screen and check their payments via virtual chips. Player stations also give people a breakdown of odds, rules and how to win.
Caesars said the new table reduces touchpoints by removing physical chips, and plexiglass barriers have been installed to provide safety amid the COVID-19 outbreak.
“We are thrilled to have our first installation in Nevada be in such a fantastic location," said Rob Ziems, President of Aruze. “The team at Harrah’s Las Vegas, and at Caesars have been great partners in our rollout of Roll to Win Craps. We now have nine units installed at Caesars properties across the United States, and they have shown their commitment to being early adopters of this groundbreaking technology.”
