Skill-Based Gaming Tables Go Live At Planet Hollywood Casino

Planet Hollywood Casino added three skill-based gaming tables to the casino floor, making it the first casino in Las Vegas, NV with skill-based gambling.

Caesars Entertainment’s Atlantic City properties were the first US casinos to place skill-based games on their casino floors. The company’s aggressive roll out of skill-based casino games has now made its way to Las Vegas with the debut of three multi-player, skill-based gaming tables at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

With the launch of ModelG tables from Gamblit Gaming, Caesars becomes the first company to put skill-based games on the gaming floor of a Nevada casino.

According to a press release, this is only the beginning. Caesars and Gamblit plan to add 200 such tables at the company’s properties across the US.

“Our partnership with Gamblit brings a unique experience to our casino floors and is an important step toward modernizing our customers gaming experience,” said Caesars Entertainment President and CEO, Mark Frissora. “We’re making tremendous progress in our efforts to reach a new generation of gamers who seek integrated skill-based gaming and Caesars is proud to be the first in Las Vegas to provide this innovative experience to our customers.”

According to the press release, “Each gaming terminal offers a unique, multi-player – multi-game machine with access to a shared 42’’ touch screen, plus a USB charging port, purse hook and two cup holders for each player.”

The tables at Planet Hollywood will offer two games at launch, Gamblit Poker™ and Cannonbeard’s Treasure™.

Gamblit Poker

Gamblit Poker tests skill and speed while allowing players to win up to 240x their bet in a single hand. Each player starts with two cards. Then a single deck of cards is shown in rapid succession in the middle of the table. Players have to quickly virtually grab the cards they need in order to complete the best possible poker hand.

Cannonbeard’s Treasure

Cannonbeard’s Treasure engages players in a fast-paced game of cards, skill and naval warfare. It is similar to blackjack, but on a whole new level. Cannonbeard’s Treasure challenges players to fill their hand without winning or busting, initiating a burndown.

During the burndown, a set of additional cards are dealt. The player who gets closest to the objective, without going over, wins a chest of gold.

The tables can be seen in the following promotional video:
