PI supplied the Red Hawk Casino with all of its 75 gaming tables as well as table layouts, cards and high-frequency RFID (radio frequency identification device) gaming chips. RFID chip security technology enables the casino to verify the authenticity and value of each chip, track individual chips throughout the gaming floor, and follow payments, fills and credits, table drops, tips, and wins and losses per table at any time of the day.
GPI’s gaming chips are also compatible with other player tracking hardware and software applications which allows for accurate tracking of play data from tables so casinos can follow player bets and accurately rate and reward players.
"We’re thrilled that Red Hawk has chosen to utilize our high-frequency RFID gaming chips on its gaming tables," stated Gerard P. Charlier, President and CEO of GPI. "With the security and player tracking benefits that RFID chip technology provides to casinos, GPI is fully committed to providing quality and innovation in RFID technology solutions, as well as in all of our products, and Red Hawk’s support validates that commitment."
"With the security and tracking technology that Red Hawk utilizes on our gaming tables, we knew that delivering quality gaming tables that accommodated the required equipment was going to be a big challenge," said Peter Nairn, Vice President of Table Games for the Red Hawk Casino. "However, with the flexibility and customization that GPI provides with their table games line, all of our needs were achieved while matching our overall well appointed decor."
"Red Hawk’s requirements for its table games were among the most complex that GPI has ever undertaken to date," added Justin Woodard, North American Sales Manager for GPI. "Working closely with the team at Red Hawk, GPI was able to design and develop tables that seamlessly integrate security technology with traditional table gaming."
GPI previously supplied its table game equipment as well as RFID gaming chips to the Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo, Michigan, which opened in August 2007. Four Winds Casino is also managed by Lakes Entertainment.
