he progressive introduction of shuffling machines in casinos has brought increased consumption of plastic cards, which offer more security and a cost effective solution to operators.
Fournier is to celebrate this 20th anniversary at the ICE London exhibition. From 4th to 6th February , at its booth S3 -144 , Fournier will display the latest generation of 100 % plastic playing cards , the playing cards that have become the standard for over a thousand casinos worldwide and the most recognized poker tournaments like the World Series of Poker (WSOP) and the World Poker Tour ( WPT) .
Javier Berasategui, Sales Director of the firm, is convinced that pioneering 100% PVC Plastic cards has helped to position the firm as a category leader, since the experience gained in creating such a sophisticated product counts for a lot. In any case Javier says that "viewed with some hindsight the most difficult thing was to dare to launch a new product category when no one knew how high the market of shufflers would climb."
