First Organic Blackjack install in Caribbean
After a few years of running Roulette and Dice games on Interblock's 3rd
generation of gaming machines, the management of Hotel Terra Nova in
Kingston decided to pursue the latest developments in multi-player
gaming and install G4 Organic BlackJack. “This is our fifth gaming device
by Interblock and at the same time the first we have been expecting with
such great excitement and enthusiasm,” said Andrew Hussey, company
NEWS director. “We are proud to be the first Caribbean gaming lounge to offer
the players BlackJack. The players are extremely excited too.”
