Shaq Jack Coming to Tropicana this July


Shaq Jack game experience combines live blackjack with a user-friendly terminal


ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (June 20, 2016) — Tropicana Atlantic City is bringing you MORE with a new gaming experience designed to revolutionize the classic casino game of blackjack. Named after four-time NBA Champion Shaquille O’Neal, Shaq Jack combines the action of live dealer blackjack with private gaming stations for the optimal blackjack game experience. Pending all necessary approvals, the game is expected to go live on July 1, 2016 at Tropicana.

“Here at Tropicana we embrace innovative games like this that enhance the guest experience and give players more power and more control. Shaq Jack is an engaging game designed to appeal to novice and expert blackjack players alike,” said Steve Callender, General Manager of Tropicana Atlantic City.

Created by Dynamic Gaming Systems, Shaq Jack offers the action of a live blackjack game with actual cards and a live dealer, played from the privacy and comfort of individual gaming terminals. Each game is a live, real-time game of 21, with each player going up against the dealer only.

Players see the hand being dealt on their screens and all the standard blackjack betting options, like splitting, doubling down and insurance are available. Buy-ins, payouts and tips are as easy as pushing a button on the touch screen. Even though there may be other player terminals attached to the dealer, each player is sitting at a table for one.

“Shaq Jack makes it possible for new or casual players to play blackjack without the intimidation of sitting at a communal table with a dealer and experienced players. On the other hand, serious players will enjoy Shaq Jack because they don’t have to worry about newbies ruining their game by playing a bad hand. It’s just you against the dealer,” Callender continued.

Look for the Shaq Jack blackjack game experience in The Quarter as well as the Poker Room at Tropicana beginning July 1st, with a chance to win free t-shirts, basketballs and other giveaways all weekend.
