UK – Scientific Games wins Aspers tenderBy Lewis - 17 June 2015
Scientific Games and Aspers Group have entered into a strategic partnership to deploy Scientific Games’ table products at its casinos in the UK to increase performance and excitement in the pit.
Scientific Games won a high-volume, long-term tender issued earlier this year to provide Shuffle Master shufflers and chippers on a five year lease basis. The commitment covers all shuffler and chipper products required for live gaming. Aspers Group will replace all of its chip sorting machines with Scientific Games’ latest chip sorting model Chip Star CSL, with over 50 units in total. Additional shufflers will provide coverage for every gaming table in the four Aspers casinos. Overall, over 110 shuffler and chipper products will be operated at the properties.
The Chip Star is increasingly becoming the product of choice for casino operators when it comes to chip sorting due to its outstanding sorting speed, doubtless CE (Communauté Européenne) conformity and virtually maintenance-free cutting edge conveyor technology. Furthermore, Chip Star CSL now allows operators to sort 43mm chips or smaller on all channels without a loss in productivity. With Scientific Games’ proven line of shufflers including one2six, DeckMate2, i-Deal and MD3, hands per hour are increased by up to 20 percent and dealer errors are reduced to a minimum by enhancing accuracy and profitability.
Mark Beattie, Head of Gaming, Aspers Group, said, “Scientific Games is a market leader in table products and it made perfect sense to work with them to bring the highest quality utility products to our casino floor. By leveraging these outstanding products, we can significantly enhance our gaming operations while delivering an engaging customer experience.”
Stelios Tsapatos, Sales Director (Europe) for Scientific Games, said, “We are enormously thrilled to partner with Aspers Group to provide state of the art products and help create greater business value. A five-year commitment on both shufflers and chippers is strong proof of their confidence in our Company. We are honored that the Group selected our table products for their properties.”
