GPI—RFID Tray Inventory Module (TIM)
Gaming Partners International’s (GPI) RFID Tray Inventory Module (TIM) is an enhanced RFID solution that is an add-on to GPI’s Chip Inventory System (CIS). It provides casinos with a secure and efficient method of managing and recording gaming currency inventories for dealer shifts at the table in real time and allows the generation of reports based on any of the recorded data. TIM keeps a perpetual record of each dealer that opens and closes a gaming table and records the beginning and ending chip inventory for each dealer’s shift. Along with the total value of all the currency, it also provides management with an account of how many chips of each denomination are in the chip tray at all times. As an added level of security, a second employee is required to validate the opening and closing of the game table each time there is a dealer shift change. TIM also monitors and records all fill and credit transactions at the table. Fill and credit transactions are recorded by TIM only when a table is in “open,” “fill” or “credit” operation and are therefore are attributed to a specific dealer’s shift.

Changing a layout no longer requires shutting down the game while the new layout is being installed on the table.

Chip trays, table signage, dealing shoes, discard racks and other equipment do not have to be removed. This saves time and gets the table back in play in minutes, allowing the casino the flexibility to adjust its table game mix as necessary. Regularly changing layouts the traditional way can also affect the placement of the gaming spots relative to the tracking sensors that may be installed in the table. If the layout is not placed accurately, the sensors may not work correctly.

SHFL entertainment—Neverbust Blackjack
Imagine a game of blackjack in which you can never bust out of the game. Neverbust Blackjack brings this feature to the table, enabling players to see hands out right to the end, every time! It’s simple—you discard any card that busts, leaving you still in the game with the original un-bust total. The dealer plays the same way and at the end, as in regular blackjack, the hand closest to 21 wins. If either you or the dealer has a hard total of 17 or higher, then you both must stand with that total. With no doubling or splitting, the game is fast-paced and ideal for recreational players: There is no intimidation factor as everyone plays the same. This game is great for those who wish to venture into the realm of blackjack without having to worry about strategy. In order to offer this “never bust” feature, if the dealer gets a total of 15, your bets are returned, regardless of whether your total is higher or lower. However, your blackjacks are still paid and all winning blackjacks pay 3 to 2. For more information, visit www.shfl.com.
