Stadium Gambling Looks to Change the Industry
Sands Casino looks to usher in a new era of gaming to the Pennsylvania public early next year. After a long debate the state has finally approved stadium style gambling in the PA casino. This multi-million dollar project looks to open a 150 seat gaming table that features the popular hybrid electronic games run by live dealers. These have been the trend in other gambling communities across the world but seems to be taking its first go here in the United States. With hopes of adding the state of the art design to the casino floor in February the work has finally begun on its construction.
The new stadium gaming table will hopefully add about 51 new jobs to the casino as well as doing away with a bar that has not been as appealing as once hoped. The CEO Mark Juliano wants to bring in the new gaming table to attract new gamblers. The idea that gaming can’t mature and be innovative is in the past. The gaming industry is one who lacks change and in an effort to stick with the times introducing the table will be their first attempt in doing so.
Sands Bensalem casino generates over $200 million from its tables annually. They make nearly double the amount on tables than any other casino in Pennsylvania. The beauty of the new table is that it allows for players to have the illusion of a live game with the dealer handling the bets but eliminates the large buy-ins and pesky players looking over your shoulder. This new addition should attract the younger players who have less experience on the live tables or just want to hone their skills before stepping up to the big boy table. Sands is on to something with their table and it looks like it will be a big money generator for the casino.
