Interblock says it’s still seeing challenging times across Asia, with the ongoing travel restrictions forcing jurisdictions to extract as much value as possible from local markets. The company welcomes the Philippines’ lead in allowing local IRs to begin accepting online bets and says this may be a new area of opportunity.
Interblock has been working hard throughout 2020 with continuous product improvements and market developments under the global pandemic restrictions. Covid-19 has significantly affected the industry, however, one of our highlights is notably the successful bidding to supply a 64-seat ETG stadium to Kangwon Land Casino, South Korea. The only casino that allows locals to gamble.
The global challenges of 2020 have not affected the ability of Interblock to innovate new products and features to adapt to the new normal. The Universal Cabinets and Roulette Golden Ball are the fruit of Interblock’s labour for taking on 2021 and beyond.
Universal Cabinets (UCs) are Interblock’s latest line up of innovative products. The UCs are a unique type of gaming machine, designed with configuration flexibility and personalised experience, to complement the gaming floor with a stand-alone version of Interblock’s Electronic Table Games (ETG).
Interblock’s latest innovation on the classic Roulette game, combining both mechanical challenges and software ingenuity, is the Golden Ball.
