Quebec-based DEQ Systems, a provider of table game bonusing, jackpot and loyalty solutions, announced that its G3 table game progressive jackpot system has been approved by the California Department of Justice’s Bureau of Gambling Control (BGC) on Caribbean Stud Poker as a standardized pre-approved game that is now available to all California card rooms.

The G3 is a linkable bonusing, jackpot and loyalty server-based system that brings an entire suite of important bonusing processes to table games, providing casinos with increased revenues and additional player participation. With the G3, players can place a progressive jackpot side bet on their own hand but also on the dealer’s hand. The G3 replaces existing bonusing systems with exciting, user-friendly applications and is adaptable to any live table game such as poker, blackjack, baccarat or Pai Gow poker.

“The approval of the G3 on Caribbean Stud Poker by the BGC is the first step of an ongoing process to have the G3 available on all the poker derivatives, Pai Gow poker and Blackjack games in the California card rooms” said Genevieve Morin, DEQ’s compliance team leader.

Casino operators that tested the DEQ G3 praised for the product. “We at the Bicycle are very committed to bringing best-of-breed products to our clients and the G3 is a perfect example of cutting edge technology that the California card room market needs to be competitive in today’s gaming environment.” said Hashem Minaiy, general partner and CEO of Bicycle Casino, Bell Gardens, Calif. “We are very excited about the prospects of linking our poker derivative games to a single progressive jackpot and we plan to do the same for our blackjack tables as well upon receiving approval from the BGC. We are very happy with the results of the G3 on our Caribbean Stud tables since they have gone live.”
