At 51% of total annual revenue, our international revenues comprise a significant piece of our total revenue. With an exciting display of diverse products showcased at ICE this year, we are confident we will continue to grow our international footprint," added Lopez.
Product demonstrations are available at stand 3450. Shuffle Master will highlight several new products that serve to further its position as a leading global provider of gaming solutions including:
* Easy Chipper D. With improved chip handling, better safety features and less moving parts, the new Easy Chipper D provides quick and accurate chip sorting which increases the number of spins per hour. It is also enhanced with an easy to use touch screen interface that makes it easier than ever to set the machine's features.
* MD2 with Optical Card Recognition. The MD2-CR shuffler is an enhanced version of the popular MD2 batch shuffler which counts and shuffles up to eight decks of cards. The MD2-CR is faster and easier to use, resulting in more productivity, security, and profitability on games like baccarat and blackjack. Utilizing the same optical card-reading technology that has been so successful on the company's i-Deal shuffler, the MD2-CR shuffler quickly scans and verifies pre-shuffled decks right at the table. It works with all card types and significantly reduces wear and tear, making cards last longer.
* i-Table for Specialty Games. As Shuffle Master's newest Electronic Table System offering, the i-Table for specialty games expands the i-Table platform with a single-deck game version that utilizes the firm's i-Deal shuffler to deliver games like Ultimate Texas Hold 'Em, which will be demonstrated at the show. By automating the betting and wager resolution process, the i-Table dramatically increases game security, accuracy and speed, resulting in a significant increase in rounds per hour while eliminating errors, a key advantage on proprietary table games that have complex paytables with high odds and complicated payouts.
* The i-Table RouletteGaming Platform. Expanding upon the i-Table platform, Shuffle Master unveils its latest ETS innovation, the i-Table Roulette gaming platform. Featuring a live roulette table with an identical footprint to a traditional table, it provides all the added functionality and benefits of electronic wagering. The i-Table Roulette gaming platform's graphically-enhanced central display screen and virtual betting stations replicate a felt layout, and all bets are instantaneously and accurately resolved. Spins per hour dramatically increase, all errors are eliminated, and table productivity more than doubles on the i-Table Roulette gaming platform.
"Our ability to further increase our global footprint is strengthened as we now offer significantly more solutions, content and features for our international customers and their players," commented Ing. Ernst Blaha, President of Shuffle Master's European subsidiary. "We have a great product lineup that can make a real difference to profitability and we look forward to meeting with many customers at ICE."
