Shuffle King II improves efficiency, security and player satisfaction

Spielbank Saarbrücken in western Germany has integrated Apex Gaming’s Shuffle King II electronic card shuffler into its poker tables.

Located near the French-German border, Spielbank Saarbrücken is the flagship casino in the state of Saarland.

The facility’s owner, Saarland Spielbanken, chose to install the Shuffle King II solution in its poker tables – also supplied by Apex – in order to improve efficiency, security and player satisfaction.

Shuffle King II can shuffle a full deck of paper or plastic playing cards automatically, and randomly, in two cycles in just over 30 seconds. Should the card deck not be 52, it reports this immediately to the croupier.

“The tests with the Shuffle King II proved to be excellent,” explained Spielbank Saarbrücken spokesman, Thomas Kliebenstein. “This product is ideal for our poker tables.

“It is simple to use and has increased our productivity. It is a great help for our croupiers, who can now focus more on the game and therefore our customers as well. We can also offer more games per hour.”

Austria-based Apex Gaming can supply operators with new poker tables complete with Shuffle King II. The solution can also be retrofitted into poker tables already in operation.

“We at Apex Gaming always focus on taking gaming to the next level,” international sales manager Ricardo Gröhlich told TotallyGaming.com. “This was clear to see at ICE, with our new complete jackpot island solutions.

“We are focusing on innovation throughout. That is why we are so pleased that our Shuffle King II is seen as an excellent solution for poker tables.”

Gröhlich added: “We are in expansion mode and we will continue to report on new installations. You can look forward to reading soon on our successes with the Shuffle King 8 that automatically shuffles up to eight decks of cards. This truly takes card shuffling to the next level.”

Totally Gaming says: The Shuffle King II installation at Spielbank Saarbrücken is a win-win for both the casino and its patrons. Not only does the solution provide enhanced efficiencies and security, its rapid shuffle speed ensures there are no long pauses between play, resulting in more games per hour.
