US – Fournier to showcase latest edition of its Bee-tek Electronic ShoeBy Phil - 7 October 2019
Bridging the gap between electronic and traditional gaming, Fournier’s latest release of the Bee-tek Electronic Shoe is set to be a star of the show at this year’s G2E, with the company’s full range of industry standard playing cards also expected to receive ample attention from attendees.
Fournier will present its complete portfolio of premium playing cards along with the latest edition of its Bee-tek Electronic Shoe at this year’s Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas.
With the Bee-tek Electronic Shoe already leading the way in security, reliability and performance, the company’s International Sales Manager Roberto Perea is looking forward to presenting the recently launched latest edition to G2E attendees.
“The event is a great opportunity for us to meet customers mainly from North America, Latin America, the Caribbean and to a lesser extent, operators from Asia, Europe and Africa,” explained Perea. “We will be showcasing our full range, including our Bee and Fournier brands plus Pre-Shuffled playing cards to increase uptime and game security and the latest generation of our Bee-tek Electronic Shoe, which has become an industry standard in Baccarat and remote gaming.”
While Fournier playing cards remain the trusted brand on the highest-rolling tables in the world’s most prestigious casinos, the company’s Bee-tek Electronic Shoe enables operators to cater to players that prefer a digital gaming experience, providing a strong alternative to Electronic Table Games (ETGs).
“ETGs embrace a visually stimulated audience and in some cases are getting a more prominent part of casinos. However, according to our Eilers report they were holding steady at 1.5 per cent of the market in 2018. The truth is, we have not seen a major growth so far,” said Mr. Perea. “Our Bee-tek Electronic Shoe bridges the gap between electronic and traditional gaming, reading the cards and sending out this information to multiple individual players, each equipped with an individual touch-screen betting terminal.”
With new casino’s popping up across the globe, Perea sees an opportunity to earn more loyal customers, particularly in Latin America and Asia. Operator’s looking to invest in playing cards for their casino look for security, durability and performance, all of which the Bee and Fournier range of playing cards are renowned for.
“We are reputed for offering peace of mind to casinos, which we can provide with a complete portfolio of premium playing cards covering solutions to all card games. We also offer Pre-Shuffled cards, the 100 per cent plastic cards elite that poker players love, and even special decks with no 10s for the Spanish 21 game,” said Mr. Perea. “On top of that, we go the extra mile to offer a great service. We are 100 percent focused and dedicated to playing cards, and customers can feel this passion.”
The industry’s confidence in Fournier cards is backed up by a successful 2019 so far, during which the company consolidated and expanded its customer base while at the same time providing a wider number of playing card solutions to operators.
“Our Baccarat solutions, such as Pre-Shuffled cards and our Bee-tek Electronic Shoe, have had an especially strong year so far,” continued Perea. “We are also strengthening and expanding our partnerships with poker tournaments around the world – such as the circuit events of World Series of Poker (WSOP), as well as with game developers to keep connecting electronic and live gaming.”
Immediately following G2E, Fournier playing cards will be used as the official cards of WSOP.mx, which promises great action throughout this October in Monterrey, México. Looking further ahead into next year, Fournier is aiming to continue its strong performance over the last 12 months by remaining the foremost innovator of playing card technology.
“For 2020, our main focus is to stay ahead of the game,” concluded Mr. Perea. “In order to do that, we will keep working on solutions that make our playing cards last even longer, and offer even more security to casinos.”
