By - 28 January 2016

Gaming Partners International is an industry leader with its extensive suite of table game products including casino currency, playing cards, layouts and dice.

GPI will be showcasing these as well as its new table layout and RFID offerings to its European customer base at the upcoming ICE show at the ExCel Centre in London.

A spokesperson said: “We are now excited to offer our full graphic EGC layouts to our European casino customers. Our EGC layouts provide sharp, full color graphics that can duplicate almost any photo or sophisticated design with exacting precision. Ideal for all game types, EGC layouts give dealers and players an exceptional playing surface and are a durable and economical choice that provides extraordinary design flexibility.”

“Customers will also be able to see firsthand demonstrations of our new exclusive SMART RFID offerings. SMART offers the latest advancement is casino currency RFID technology and when used with our Chip Inventory System (CIS) software, SMART delivers a complete currency tracking and authentication solution. SMART can be integrated with third party software for optimum efficiency. GPI offers all the necessary components from SMART RFID currency, both antennas and readers. SMART is available on all of our currency brands.

“Our newest line of B&G plastic injection molded chips, the V-Series, was developed to provide customers an additional gaming currency option with advanced design flexibility and an unmatched level of available security features. Beginning with the foundation of the chip, we developed the V-Series using a new, innovative and highly durable injection material formula. The chips offer the same color options and wide range of chip and decal security features as our original B&G JAV line of chips. The V-Series chips were designed to offer a whole new range of versatile edge spot patterns that can be created with a choice between two different size decals. For customers who order the V-Series with four or more color shots, the chips come standard with an infra-red security feature exclusive to GPI. With the large amount of handling of casino currency by dealers and players alike, we have also included ChipShield, an anti-fungal, helps keep the gaming chips cleaner, longer for a more sanitary chip surface.”

“Along with our currency offerings, we will be highlighting our extensive suite of currency security features. Customers can see demonstrations of some of our newer offerings including 3-in-1 UV and SecuriFilm. Our 3-in-1 UV is a security taggant that remains invisible under standard UV wavelengths but is revealed with a special device. Because it can be added to plastic injection-molded chip materials, it is easy to validate chips when placed in stacks or racks. SecuriFilm is used on a chip’s decal and features a semi-transparent hologram-like effect. SecuriFilm can be easily authenticated at the table and includes an additional covert security feature enabling a higher level of validation. Most important, unlike holograms, SecuriFilm is compatible with RFID chips.

“Our popular Gemaco branded line of playing cards which includes two paper stock and two plastic card types will be on our tables and available for customers. We will be showcasing a full suite of table game products with each table stocked with the essential products required for a live game.”
