he Colorado gaming market has recently seen significant expansion due to legislation allowing casinos to offer craps and roulette, remain open 24 hours a day and raised the maximum wager from us$ 5 to us$ 100. There are currently 41 casinos operating in Colorado with approximately 23 of those now offering table games.
Galaxy Gaming has two of its games, Three Card Split and Buffalo Blackjack Bonus, currently approved for field trial with the Colorado Division of Gaming. More games are anticipated to be added soon.
Buffalo Blackjack Bonus is a variation of blackjack designed by Galaxy Gaming specifically for the Colorado market. Colorado has some unique regulations regarding variations to Blackjack, so the company's other popular side bets such as Lucky Ladies could not be submitted for approval. Buffalo Blackjack Bonus incorporates two side bets, known as "21 Magic" and "Bust Bonus," which conform to Colorado's regulations.
Dean Barnett, Regional Sales Manager for Galaxy Gaming reported on the response he received from Colorado casino operators. "Having just returned from Colorado, it was thrilling to experience such a warm and enthusiastic response from casino operators who were hungry for new table game products and; from a new table game supplier. Our initial game submissions were well received and I expect more of our games to be approved shortly which in turn, should result in additional placements," commented Mr. Barnett.
Robert Saucier, Galaxy Gaming's CEO noted, "The decision by Colorado legislators to relax table game regulations was beneficial for their table game operators and a significant consideration for Galaxy Gaming to enter the market. An unexpected side benefit was the development of the blackjack side bets '21 Magic' and 'Bust Bonus.' Originally created only for Colorado, we believe we can leverage their popularity into other jurisdictions as well. I think we have two more winners."
