(Macau).- Shuffle Master announced that it will display a unique lineup of exciting games and innovative products at the 2011 G2E in Macau next week, in booth 801. State-of-the-art innovations and an extensive array of specialty game titles will be presented, as well as productivity enhancing utility products.

By combining popular table game content with state-of-the-art technology, Shuffle Master's electronic table systems automate the table gaming experience and provide casinos with a wealth of information about game play and player betting behavior”
.G2E Asia, the region’s largest gaming trade show, offers Shuffle Master an unparalleled opportunity to showcase innovations in four diverse product segments – utility products, specialty table games, electronic table systems and slot machines.

“We believe we’ve got the most diverse product portfolio in the industry and we’re confident that this show will only solidify that point with customers,” stated Ken Jolly, Shuffle Master’s Executive Vice President of Asia. “G2E Asia provides an excellent opportunity to demonstrate how our unique suite of products can significantly increase the earnings power for operators while simultaneously elevating the gaming experience for players.”

The exhibit will highlight several key products:

Baccarat for e-Tables

Shuffle Master’s electronic table suite of products includes two key offerings for baccarat, which will be highlighted at the show: Rapid Baccarat and Vegas Star Grand Baccarat. Combining a live dealer, live cards, its card-reading iShoe, and a touch-screen electronic betting interface, Rapid Baccarat dramatically increases game security and productivity by automating the wagering process. With a variety of installation configurations that can accommodate additional player positions as traffic increases, Rapid Table Games offer unparalleled flexibility needed in Asia's busy casinos.

Vegas Star Grand Baccarat is a fully electronic baccarat table that combines a virtual dealer on a central plasma screen with individual touch-screen betting terminals and features the enticing Grand Tie jackpot side bet. The Grand Tie side bet is triggered by tied 8’s and 9’s. Up to 10 gold cards are dealt with each gold card awarding either a major or mini jackpot, or a bonus credit prize.

“By combining popular table game content with state-of-the-art technology, Shuffle Master's electronic table systems automate the table gaming experience and provide casinos with a wealth of information about game play and player betting behavior,” continued Jolly.

The New Equinox Cabinet

Shuffle Master will showcase its impressive selection of slot machine titles that feature stunning graphics, enticing progressive jackpots and rewarding free game features. Housed in the new, stylish Equinox cabinet, this year’s lineup includes such standalone progressives as The Pink Panther1 Returns, Potion Power™, and Fortune games; all Fortune games feature a unique active symbol function known as All Up. With the All Up bet, players can select to activate 5 symbols per game from the button panel. The symbols change from various colors to gold and offer greater wins for the amount of gold symbols played.

Players will have a witchingly good time with the firm’s new two-level stand-alone progressive Cats, Hats & Bats. With the ability to win up to 13 free games and the screen-trembling Bat Splat feature awarding prizes up to 16 times, being spooked has never been so much fun.

Extensive Suite of Specialty Table Games & Progressives

This year’s exhibit will feature progressives for an extensive array of specialty table games, including Fortune Pai Gow Poker Progressive, Blackjack Switch Progressive, Four Card Poker Progressive, and Mississippi Stud Progressive. Chip sensors embedded in the table allow players to place an optional jackpot wager to potentially win fixed prizes or a continuously incrementing progressive jackpot. Progressives enhance specialty games by creating additional action, excitement and volatility, therefore increasing profitability for the casino. “It has been our experience that players in the Asian markets clearly have an appetite for the excitement that live table games provide, and our progressives reinforce that appeal,” Jolly added.

The Next Generation of Shuffling Technology: Intuitive Card Shufflers

World-renowned for their exceptional engineering and unparalleled performance, Shuffle Master's card shufflers are designed to increase table game productivity, profitability and security. The new MD2CR™ shuffler will be front and center at the show, demonstrating the advanced capabilities of the latest shuffling technology. Utilizing the same optical card-reading technology that has been so successful on the Company's i-Deal® shuffler, the MD2CR scans and verifies pre-shuffled blackjack and baccarat decks right at the table. Featuring an innovative platform and gripper system, the MD2CR counts and shuffles up to eight decks of cards quickly and quietly, and significantly reduces wear and tear, making cards last longer.

Key Utility Offerings: i-Verify and Easy Chipper D

The i-Verify, an LCD touch screen display that is embedded into a felt table, provides increased security and reduces dealer training for “house way” games like Fortune Pai Gow Poker and Fortune San Lo Poker. When used in conjunction with an i-Deal shuffler, the i-Verify tells the dealer exactly how to set his or her hand, according to the prescribed house procedure.

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. The Easy Chipper D is also enhanced with an easy to use touch-screen interface that makes it easier than ever to set the machine's features.

“It’s all about innovating in the right direction and Shuffle Master is paving the way with products that we believe are truly changing the game such as electronic table systems,” commented Shuffle Master’s Chief Executive Officer, Gavin Isaacs. “Our team has spent a lot of time focusing on this part of the world, and our product lineup at G2E Asia will underscore our deep commitment to both fulfilling and anticipating the needs of the Asian market. As Shuffle Master’s new CEO, I am keenly focused on building even stronger relationships with our Asian customers and keeping us well-positioned to respond to the rapid growth of this major gaming market.”
