Apex Gaming has installed its Shuffle King II electronic and fully automatic card shuffler within its own poker tables at the casino Spielbank Saarbrücken in Germany.
Spielbank Saarbrücken is the flagship casino in the state of Saarland, belonging to the casino group Saarland Spielbanken. Its management is well known for its constant focus on improving player satisfaction and is often the casino group that opens the door to new innovations in the German casino environment.
This is exactly the case with the Shuffle King II card shuffler from APEX gaming. This ingenious device shuffles a full deck of 52 cards automatically and randomly in two cycles in just over 30 seconds. It can shuffle both paper and plastic cards. It checks each time that 52 cards have been counted – should the card deck not be 52, it reports this immediately to the croupier.
“The tests with the Shuffle King II proved to be excellent. This product is ideal for our poker tables”, explained Thomas Kliebenstein from Spielbank Saarbrücken. “It is simple to use and has increased our productivity. It is a great help for our croupiers who can now focus more on the game and therefore our customers as well. Thus, we can offer more games per hour as well. Furthermore, I must say that it is excellent value for money”.
APEX Gaming has provided the Shuffle King II card shufflers complete in their own poker tables. “We can provide complete solutions. For casinos looking to install new poker tables, then we can offer the table with the Shuffle King II already installed. Naturally we offer the Shuffle King II by itself to be retrofitted into poker tables already at the casino. We are flexible in our approach and can provide the service of offering tables in the design according to customer requirements”, explained Ricardo Gröhlich, International Sales Manager at Apex gaming.
The Shuffle King II and the Apex poker tables further enhance the growing position APEX has in the live gaming segment. The award-winning iDROP / iDROPe is the perfect solution for accepting tickets and cash directly at live gaming tables. “Again our goal is to take gaming to the next level – this time for live gaming”, concluded Mr. Gröhlich.
