GPI will feature live demonstrations of its RFID technologies at work, highlighting the benefits for chip authenticity verification, tracking and inventorying.
Also being presented is GPI's RFIDPoker, developed to improve accuracy and increase the speed of various actions on the poker table. Easily fitted on any poker table, GPI's RFIDPoker works with RFID chips to provide error-free, automatic and constant reading of the poker pot, calculates charges and rakes, and provides essential data and statistics such as game analysis, table performances, round-ups lists, and daily totals.
RFIDPoker also helps to speed up the game and has proven to increase hands per hour by as much as 30 %, improving revenues for casinos, and reducing wait times for players both at the game and waiting for a table. To enhance its offering, GPI's new Progressive Poker system features three incrementing jackpots that can be won at any RFIDPoker Texas Hold 'Em table. The Progressive Poker system can link all poker tables in the casino and draws an extra rake from each pot to feed the progressive jackpots, which are displayed on the main LCD display.
GPI will also be hosting private showings of other new technology innovations, as well as the latest advancements in product development. It will be present at booth 2610 at Global Gaming Expo 2009.
