ria, which is part of the City Center project purchased GPI's popular Paulson line of gaming chips, a significant portion of which was fitted with high-frequency 13.56MHz RFID (radio frequency identification device) microchips.
The RFID technology offered with all GPI's lines of casino currency, allows casinos to verify the authenticity and value of each chip almost instantly, reducing the possibility of counterfeits, staff pilferage or errors in casino currency counts. This technology enables casinos to track individual chips throughout the gaming floor and, with specialized readers and software, follow payments, fills and credits, table drops, tips, and wins and losses per table at any time of the day. GPI's high-frequency RFID chips are compatible with special player tracking hardware and software that allow for accurate tracking of play data from tables so casinos can follow player bets and accurately rate and reward players.
GPI also delivered 190 custom-built gaming tables for the Aria casino, which includes a poker room and three separate high-limit gaming salons. The hand-crafted tables, which were designed to complement the natural light aesthetic of the Aria casino, included poker, blackjack, roulette, craps, baccarat, and other casino table games.
"We are thrilled that the Aria Resort and Casino has chosen GPI to supply its tables, chips and other table equipment," said Greg Gronau, President and CEO for GPI. "Aria is one of the most highly anticipated new casinos this year and their decision to utilize GPI gaming furniture and table products is a testament to the high levels of quality and service that GPI provides."
