A partnership between Inspired Entertainment and Caesars Digital is bringing a new game concept involving Hybrid Dealer options to PA online casinos.

Inspired, a leading game system and content provider, announced the new partnership last week.

PA online casinos offer real dealers and CGI with new Hybrid Dealer games

Online casino apps largely focus on their online PA slots games, which have proven to be particularly popular. But gamers who enjoy table games at live casinos will soon have an appealing online option at Caesars Casino PA.

Imagine an online version of your favorite casino table games like blackjack, roulette and poker that emulate the look and feel of being at a real casino – live dealer and all. That’s the idea behind the new Hybrid Dealer games being developed by Inspired Entertainment for Caesars.

Hybrid Dealer is a new category of games that integrates footage of real casino dealers with CGI to create a realistic immersive experience for players. The technology allows Inspired to customize the graphics, branding and experience for Caesars, even virtually transporting players to real Caesars flagship locations in Las Vegas. In addition to the usual casino games, Inspired will use the technology to create game show content, as well.

In a press release, Matt Sunderland, Senior Vice President and Head of iGaming at Caesars Digital, said:

“We are always looking for new ways to enhance the player experience and for ways to keep our players engaged. Inspired’s Hybrid Dealer technology provides a customizable gaming experience that is second to none and allows our players to enjoy the thrill of our iconic Caesars destinations in a whole new way. This partnership is a testament to our dedication to providing the best online casino experience for our players through cutting-edge offerings.”

The Hybrid Dealer technology doesn’t require studios and live dealers like other online live dealer games do. Hybrid Dealer game outcomes are generated by RNG (Random Number Generator) instead. This allows for quicker and cheaper rollouts of new custom games, along with 24/7 gaming.

President and Chief Executive Officer of Inspired, Brooks Pierce, said:

“We are excited to be working with Caesars to bring these revolutionary Hybrid Dealer products to their players. Hybrid Dealer is a whole new category of games, and through our advanced technology, Caesars will be able to provide realistic experiences to their players without the expense and effort of dedicated studios and staffing.”


Caesars PA is not the first to market with Hybrid Dealer content

PlayPennsylvania recently reported on Hybrid Dealer games when BetMGM Casino PA showed off its version of them at the Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas.

While Caesars hasn’t unveiled any specific games yet, BetMGM has launched MGM Bonus City – also through a partnership with Inspired Entertainment.

That new game falls under the game show subcategory and features a host that spins a prize wheel with eight potential outcomes and four possible bonus rounds. BetMGM made use of the customization to theme the bonus rounds after MGM flagship properties: New York-New York, Luxor, MGM Grand and Bellagio.

Live dealer games have already proven to be popular at PA online casinos. The new hybrid technology offers online casinos a cost-effective way to expand on that style of game, with more titles available to play any time of day.
