Scientific Games: Hawaiian Island Creations Hold 'em Poker to be Unveiled at the 2016 Global Gaming Expo

Scientific Games reported that Hawaiian Island Creations Hold 'em Poker, the result of a partnership between Scientific Games and HIC, will be unveiled in the Company's booth No. 1126 at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E"), September 27-29 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.

HIC President and Chief Executive Officer Craig Hara said, "We are excited to see the HIC brand on an engaging new table game created by Scientific Games, the world leader in table products. The HIC brand recognition and loyalty resonates with a wide consumer demographic, harnessing abundant potential to become a compelling trademarking partner in the gaming industry. HIC is a lifestyle that the public is drawn to - whether you have grown up in the islands, visited the islands or want to go there one day, everyone has this fascination about the brand and the Hawaiian islands. Our brand promise is focused on entertainment and fun, much like table-game play, and we think there are strong synergies to make this a very successful table game."

According to a release, Scientific Games' Shuffle Master HIC Hold 'em Poker is a new variation of the Pineapple Hold 'em poker in which players get three cards to form their best two-card starting hand.

HIC Hold 'em Poker is the first version of hold 'em to incorporate the Shuffle Master i-Deal Plus shuffler into the game by randomly selecting the bet multiplier; in turn creating more excitement at the table and additional ways for players to win big.
