US – CIAS looks to sell rights to its RFID system

By - 15 April 2013

CIAS Inc is selling its player identification technology and analytics using RFID-enabled gaming chips.

The advanced casino gaming system is being sold by ICAP Patent Brokerage.

Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage, said: “We are excited to offer these innovative gaming tools to our global base of buyers. This IP package provides solutions for increased reliability and efficiency in gaming systems, and is highly relevant to casinos and gaming establishments as well as companies providing products and services for such industries.”

The portfolio for sale offers an improved system for automatically tracking casino gaming activities of individual players. The enhanced system allows for accurate and consistent tracking of betting values with the added benefit of utilizing the information gathered for improved customer service and experience.

When the system is implemented, optical devices are mounted on players betting locations and in their vicinity to monitor the flow of chips. Information – provided via a bar code around the periphery of a gaming chip – is then used to track betting activities of both the players and the dealer.

Mr. Becker explained that RFID tags are used in gaming chips for monitoring their location and thereby determining the betting value of the player. This also helps in detecting counterfeit, damaged, or stolen chips. Using RFID tags enables accurate tracking of table plays while minimising efforts of the dealer and other casino personnel, resulting in increased dealer’s efficiency and secure game play.
