Boomtown Casino Biloxi Introduces Chipless Technology 'Smart Pit' EZ Play Zone

Boomtown Casino Biloxi unveiled Interblock’s new, chipless gaming technology known as Smart Pit. Powered by Smart Pit, the EZ Play Zone allows gamblers to play live craps, dual roulette, and blackjack.

Boomtown Casino Biloxi dealers can manage multiple games simultaneously with Interblock’s Smart Pit

The casino, which is a Penn Entertainment property, confirmed that the chipless technology “ensures seamless play and accurate payouts,” the company said.

Dealers can manage multiple games simultaneously, “increasing efficiency and player interaction.” General manager Barry Regula said it reduces the training time for new dealers as well.

“The Smart Pit allows people to come in and not go through the usual casino training, which can take up to 12 weeks, and could involve additions and things like that,” Regula told Biloxi-Gulfport WLOX.

“A Smart Pit dealer can learn the games in a matter of hours, and just learn the company’s policies, and be up and earning a living right away.”

Penn Entertainment’s property is the first to offer state-of-the-art, chipless gaming technology

The smart pit will also allow the casino to open up new games sooner.

“We are thrilled to partner with Boomtown Casino Biloxi for the launch of our Smart Pit technology,” said Interblock CEO John Connelly. “This installation marks a significant milestone in our mission to revolutionize the gaming experience, combining advanced technology with traditional gaming elements to enhance both player engagement and operational efficiency.”

Tosha Tousant, VP of casino operations at Boomtown, added: “Once again, Penn Entertainment’s properties on the Gulf Coast are proud to be the first to offer cutting-edge gaming technology with the first regional installation of an integrated Smart Pit suite.

“In addition to being the first to offer linked multi-property table games baccarat progressive jackpots and the first property in Mississippi to offer cashless gaming at Hollywood Gulf Coast, we are now the first property outside of Las Vegas to offer Smart Pit blackjack, roulette and craps.”

The EZ Play Zone is located at the main entrance of Boomtown Casino Biloxi.
