TCSJOHNHULXEY Chosen to Supply Norwegian Epic

TCSJOHNHUXLEY USA is delighted to have recently supplied all of the live casino gaming equipment to Norwegian Cruise Line’s largest and most innovative ship to date – Norwegian Epic. Launched earlier this summer, the 150,000 ton Norwegian Epic has a total 4200 passenger berths, boasting a wide range of accommodation including the largest suite complex at sea, along with more than 20 dining options. The casino is the fleet’s largest and most elegant to date and features all the latest gaming products.

Following more than four years of development and construction, the team at NCL Miami Head Office decided they wanted the new casino to offer the latest state of the art gaming products as well as a range of traditional games. Working very closely with TCSJOHNHUXLEY, the NCL Executive Management decided to install one of the latest innovations after seeing its launch at the 2010 IGE show based in London.

The fully automated MultiPLAY HD Auto Roulette featuring the Gemini wheel offers cashless gaming combined with bill acceptors and ticket printers. The result is a live-hybrid Roulette platform that requires no dealer or inspection, which is ideal for the casino at sea.

In addition, to the MultiPLAY table the casino incorporates 29 other gaming tables consisting of various Blackjack games, LuminAR Roulette, Craps and Hold ‘Em Poker. The latest generation e-FX Insignia number displays and Saturn roulette wheels complete the order. All of the tables were custom designed executive barrel bases incorporating luxurious laminates and materials specified by the NCL Design Team.

“TCSJOHNHUXLEY were very attentive to our requirements before, during, and after the order was delivered making sure we were totally satisfied,” comments Jim Abbas, Norwegian’s Vice President of Casino Operations. “The tables look great with the robust and practical design that we customized prior to building to match our operational and aesthetic needs.”

Brad Broderick, VP of Sales for North America, concludes, “The entire team at TCSJOHNHUXLEY USA was proud to be a part of this exciting project. We are grateful that NCL put their trust in us to deliver our great range of products to this stunning new addition of their fleet. We wish the onboard casino staff the very best of success.”
