n addition to its core products such as gaming tables, casino currency, precision dice, playing cards, table layouts and accessories, GPI will once again feature live demonstrations of its newest developments in RFID readers and application software for casinos.
Complementing GPI's existing line of RFID technology available in both 125 KHz and 13.56 MHz frequencies, the new readers and application software facilitate improved security of casino currency, increased speed of play at gaming tables and the elimination of error in chip counts and calculations.
The highlight of the RFID Cage application is the new countertop reader that works in three dimensions, allowing the cage operator to accurately read chips whether they are in stacks, in chip racks or in a pile.
Adding to its RFID TableSolutions platform, GPI has created a new table application that interfaces with JCM bill validators and the chip tray to allow casino personnel to get a real-time status of the cash and chip currency at the table. This application utilizes a built-in display that allows for fills/credits management, chip authentication and tracking, and reading of bets for calculations based on game play, all directly at the table.
The firm is also introducing its integrated RFID roulette application, which monitors and tracks bets, game activity and chip change operations automatically. Additionally, GPI has developed an interactive lighting system on the table that alerts players of different phases of the roulette game.
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 further 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 RFIDPoker 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 showcasing its eReady gaming tables, designed and built especially to accommodate the electronic equipment that is increasingly required on gaming tables. The eReady table design allows for ventilation and cooling of electronic equipment, elimination of signal interference of RFID transmitters and specially-built areas for shufflers and bill validators that are ergonomically placed for dealer convenience and comfort.
GPI's Themed Products help extend casino marketing efforts all the way to the gaming table. Utilizing chips, layouts and dice, casinos can market directly to a captive audience - the table game player. GPI's highly-customizable themed products are the same high-quality products casinos use every day - just customized for a specific event or milestone. Whether used to commemorate holidays, promote concerts or sporting events or celebrate casino anniversaries, players will love the uniqueness of these products and casino marketing will love the impact they make.
To complement its line of precision roulette wheels, it is showcasing roulette reader displays that are available for both single- and double-0 wheels, come in three sizes and feature real-time instant reading of the action on the roulette wheel.
With an integrated camera, a slim design and easy installation, GPI roulette reader displays offer features such as display of statistics such as the 16 last winning numbers, simple bets, and hot and cool numbers, display of minimum and maximum table bets, and an area for commercial messages. GPI is also introducing its new baccarat displays, which are fully customizable and display all the relevant statistics of the game.
Another product enhancement being highlighted at IGE is GPI's FX layouts with digital graphics. These new layouts offer the best of the digital full-graphic capabilities with GPI's patented FX synthetic process and exclusive material, popular for its durability and wearability.
