When most people think of a table game, they likely envision a group of people gathered around a dealer who are betting, socializing and otherwise enjoying a classic game of blackjack, roulette, poker or craps. What likely doesn’t spring to mind is advanced technology—after all, part of the appeal of a table game is its timeless simplicity.
However, this doesn’t mean technology can’t be integrated into the table game in such a way that it preserves the flow of the game. Indeed, the proper enhancement in the right place can boost player enjoyment while making the game more streamlined, efficient and profitable for the operator. One company looking to provide such technology to the table game pit is Automated Cash Systems (ACS), a Reno, Nev.-based supplier of PlayOn, a solution that allows players to access commercial transactions and payment options through point-of-sale, PIN-secured debit payments at the point-of-play in gaming environments.
