A fast and easy table game to understand and play in which players wager on the three card poker hand he or she thinks will have a higher rank, East West Fortune also features an optional Bonus bet that pays odds as high as 40 to 1.
The exhibit will also highlight several additional products, including the following:
Fortune 3 Card Poker, a variation of the most popular specialty table game of all time that features three ways to play and four ways to win. Just like in Three Card Poker, players may bet against the dealer, bet on the value of their own three card hand, or bet both.
Fortune Pai Gow Poker Progressive, a twist to standard Fortune Pai Gow Poker that gives players an opportunity to win all—or part—of a large, incrementing jackpot. In addition to the progressive wager, the game also features head-to-head play against the dealer, a Fortune Bonus, and possible Envy Bonuses.
i-Shoe Auto, a smart alternative to a traditional dealing shoe that automatically reads the rank and suit of each card as it is dealt, reducing game manipulation and collusion on multi-deck games like baccarat. In addition to its automated card delivery feature that delivers cards to the front of the shoe, it also includes a hold card feature that is activated when a misdeal occurs.
i-Deal Shuffler, a next-generation single deck specialty shuffler that incorporates card recognition technology to read the rank and suit of each card. The i-Deal is widely used to authenticate jackpot hands, improve game security, and increase table profitability while delivering a completely random shuffle every time. Grand Central, a new progressive link that includes two features and a four-level jackpot. It is available with three exciting electronic gaming machine titles: Gold Country, Sycee and Oceanus.
Vegas Star Star Roulette, a stand-alone, single player roulette e-Table that offers all of the excitement and wagering available on live roulette tables. Its touch-screen functionality allows players to place their roulette wagers from the comfort of their individual player terminal and provides an excellent opportunity for novice players to learn roulette in a less intimidating environment.
