Scientific Games is buying Tech Art, one of the gaming industry’s leading supplier of hole-card readers for blackjack.
The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2018. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Tech Art will bring to Scientific Games its innovative MAXTime 4H product, a combination of a blackjack hole-card reader and a chip tray, as well as the proprietary table games Super Fun 21 and Bet the Bust.
