PokerTek Installs Automated Poker Tables at Excalibur
Excalibur Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas is installing 12 PokerPro tables. Excalibur is both the first casino in Nevada to install automated poker tables and the official field trial site for PokerPro in the state. Pending final regulatory inspection and approval, Excalibur plans to open the new room Friday, August 22 at 6 p.m.
“We are delighted beyond words that an operator of Excalibur’s quality is opening a 100 percent PokerPro poker room on the Strip. It is commentary on how far PokerTek and automated poker have come in such a short time,” said PokerTek’s CEO Chris Halligan. “The acceptance of the game has grown substantially in the last year and continues to grow as our footprint expands.”
“We continue to hit major milestones,” Halligan continued. “We’ve opened a successful 20-plus table room in Montreal, a beautiful 12 table room in Michigan, a high-end 12-table room in Atlantic City and now 12 tables in the gaming hub of the world, Las Vegas. With more than 230 PokerPro tables currently installed worldwide, we are ready for the Nevada market.”
