Korea's BGNT shows off unmanned casino table at G2E in the Philippines - 매일경제
Wednesday 4th December 2019
South Korea's IT solutions provider BGNT has showcased its latest smart table for casinos featuring the radio frequency identification (RFID) technology at the Global Gaming Exhibition (G2E) held in Manila, the Philippines on Dec. 3-4.
The new table incorporating the Internet of Things technology makes it possible for casinos to manage and oversee the data related to games and customers that had been under control of dealers - ranging from movement of gaming chips, game results and customer comps to less or over payment and player's cheating - in real time.
The RFID Smart Table also is able to manage and process big data about customer's preference for game play and the latest gaming trend in the industry, the company said.
"More and more casinos are now putting RFID tags in gaming chips and installing smart tables to read the chips. On a rise in global demand, multiple companies have been eager to develop own smart tables, but it's not easy due to the reading speed and interference problem," said an industry expert.
BGNT's unmanned game table is capable of reading "more than 700 gaming chips in just four seconds and betting in one second," said Seo Suk-jin, chief executive of BGNT. "Our Smart Table has the same shape as the typical gaming tables used in casinos, bringing no changes to the gaming operation," he added.
Seo also showed confidence about the table, saying "casinos will be able to enhance its credentials by adding transparency and accuracy with the smart table and further to improve sales and prevent tricks and crimes."
The latest smart table is the second version of BGNT's RFID-based casino table after the one unveiled last year. The company now is planning to add more lineup targeting the U.S., the world's largest blackjack market, for the next G2E, which is scheduled to be held in Macao in May next year.
During this year's show, BGNT's smart table grabbed much attention from leading casino names like Okada Manila Resort & Casino, Solaire Casino and City of Dream, the company said.
