Caesars launches first skill-based games in Las Vegas

4 April 2017

Caesars Entertainment has joined forces with Gamblit Gaming to launch the first skill-based gaming service in the US gambling haven of Las Vegas, Nevada.

The new gaming experience debuted last week at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino for a field trial phase, with an initial three tables and two games on offer to players.

‘Cannonbeard’s Treasure’ is a similar to blackjack in that it challenges players to fill their hand without winning or busting, while ‘Gamblit Poker’ tests skill and speed, allowing players to win up to 240 times their bet in a single hand.

Pending regulatory approval, further Gamblit games will be installed at various Caesars properties throughout Nevada, including Caesars Palace, with Caesars also planning to roll out the service at sites across the wider US market.

Mark Frissora, president and chief executive of Caesars Entertainment, said: “Our partnership with Gamblit brings a unique experience to our casino floors and is an important step towards modernising our customers’ gaming experience.

“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.”
