The announcement comes just days after Play Synergy announced it would be acquiring Aruze Gaming's slot machine business.

Interblock, a maker of electronic table gaming products, is acquiring assets from the gaming device manufacturer Aruze Gaming America.

Specifically, Interblock will be acquiring Aruze Gaming’s electronic table game assets.

John Connelly, Global CEO of Interblock, said, "The Aruze acquisition creates a significant portfolio of innovative synergies we intend to bring to the market before the end of this calendar year. Aruze Gaming provides us with a new level of diversity we feel will accelerate our vision to make Interblock synonymous with table game technology.

"As we continue to differentiate ourselves in the gaming industry, this acquisition empowers us to offer a broader range of high-quality, innovative gaming solutions to our valued partners in both a traditional and online offering."

Interblock plans to integrate Aruze's electronic table games product line into its portfolio and expand its workforce to more than 700 employees worldwide. More details on the acquisition will be disclosed during the transaction process.

Interblock is licensed in 328 jurisdictions worldwide. Interblock USA is based in Las Vegas, as is Aruze Gaming America.

Just a couple of days ago, Empire Technology Group, a Las Vegas company doing business as Play Synergy, announced plans to acquire Aruze Gaming America’s slot machine business, including its online gaming and land-based assets.

Aruze Gaming America plans to shut down its Las Vegas headquarters in August and lay off 100 workers. The closure will be effective August 18, about a half a year after Aruze Gaming America filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Michael Hershman, CEO of the Soloviev Group, joins Tim Poole on the Huddle to put forward his case that the Freedom Plaza is the way to go for one of New York's casino licences. He fields a variety of questions - not shying away from any of them - on why 'myths' about casinos and a fear of the unknown should be dispelled, as well as acknowledging the strength of rival bids and discussing opposition to the project.
