Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort in North Carolina is now the first casino in the United States of America to specify the iDROPe for its live table games. Harrah’s Cherokee is placed at the base of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in western North Carolina and brings a wide range of slots and live games. The 21-storey hotel features more than 1,100 rooms and the resort offers various entertainment options, such as a 3,000 concert venue, Essence Lounge for nightlife, shopping and Mandara Spa amongst others.
APEX gaming’s iDROPe is the revolutionary cash handling solution for live tables. The iDROPe recently won three major awards, two of them at the Casino Marketing & Technology Conference that took place in Las Vegas – in the categories “Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Technology Products” and “Attendees’ Choice”.
The benefits offered by the iDROPe have been under evaluation for the last nine months at Harrah’s Cherokee and have passed the assessment with flying colours.
Ron Hager, Director of Table Games:
Dealers can now accept tickets and/or bills directly at the gaming table and insert them into the iDROPe. This also includes promotional tickets. Up to 50 at a time can be entered – the iDROPe validates and stores each one then individually. Cashing out is simple as the chip value is paid back in the form of a ticket. The intuitive integrated touchscreen makes it simple for the dealer to use the iDROPe. The operator has complete information of each and every ticket and bill entered into the iDROPe.
