Gamblit Gaming, which is an independent subsidiary of Integrity Gaming Inc. has announced the installation of its first casino game machines at the Downstream Casino located in Quapaw Oklahoma.
According to a press statement from Poydras Gaming Finance Corporation, this launch is part of Integrity Gaming’s objective to provide new-age interactive games to land-based casinos in various markets. Gamblit games are unique because they are developed with the intent of bridging the gap between traditional casino gaming machines and video games.
A New Experience
Gamblit specializes in game platforms that merge elements of video games with casino-based gameplay. Its skill-based games are immersive and aimed at a diverse target market that appreciates an interactive gaming experience. In addition to the different gaming experience, players can also enjoy various wagering options to make the experience even more interesting and suited to casinos.
According to Peter Macy of Poydras Gaming, the new Gamblit Model G game machines will add variety to land-based casinos in the tribal jurisdictions within Oklahoma and Texas, where Gamblit has an exclusive agreement to distribute games. “These consoles going live mark an important milestone in our development and position us as the leading provider of next generation gaming devices in Oklahoma and Texas,” stated Macy. Gamblit games are also expected to create a new market base by attracting new casino players who would otherwise opt for more conventional video games.
The CEO of Gamblit Gaming, Eric Meyerhofer, expressed his company’s delight to be launching gaming devices in Oklahoma which is the third largest gaming market in the US. He also looked forward to a major foray into different markets in the near future. “Integrity is a leading player and a trusted partner in Oklahoma, and its strong and enduring relationships make them the ideal partner as we deploy additional gaming machines in the region.”
The new way of casino gaming
The deployed Gamblit Model G gaming consoles are the only multi-player skill-based casino games in Oklahoma and players can enjoy the new experience at Downstream Casino Resort.
The state-of-the-art consoles integrate multiple games including Gamblit Poker, Cannonbeard’s Treasure and Blackjack into each machine thus giving players a wide and varied array of gaming options to choose from. The fast-paced games require plenty of skill and dexterity, resulting in an exhilarating experience that differs from classic casino games.
Placement agreement for gaming machines
The press statement highlighted the exclusive agreement between the the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma to place gaming machines in Choctaw Casinos and Resorts. The establishments are Headquartered in the city of Durant, Oklahoma and consist of various gaming, hotel and resort properties across the southeastern part of the state.
