Chartwell Technology Inc., along with its subsidiary Chartwell Games (International) Ltd., a provider of games, gaming systems and platform for the regulated online casino gaming industry, is the first provider to bring Ultimate Texas Hold’em to online casinos. Chartwell has teamed with the experts at Shuffle Master Incorporated to offer the fastest growing land-based table game to their clients. Ultimate Texas Hold’em is also one of Shuffle Master’s highest revenue earners.

The game features head-to-head play against the dealer and an optional bonus bet that pays odds if the player’s final five-card hand is a three-of-a-kind or better. By letting players check through the river, Ultimate Texas Hold’em beats other hold’em style games hands down.

Ultimate Texas Hold’em is also the first table game available on Chartwell’s new Rapid Game Deployment architecture, which means clients can install the game on their system with no downtime.

“We’re excited to be the first to offer our clients this wildly popular card game. Players will love the same great features as the popular land-based game,” said Dave Acorn, chief operating officer. “Ultimate Texas Hold’em is the first Chartwell table game released this year and will surely be a hit with operators and players alike.” To learn more about this game and Chartwell’s full game suite, visit www.chartwellgames.com.
