Bet by Bet System

The Bet-by-Bet application is a powerful new tool that tracks all the individual bets wagered at the baccarat games.  Designed for the VIP table games market, it provides a fluid solution for VIP hosts to easily track each bet in a mobile application that feeds baccarat results directly from table devices, leveraging the power of the Shufflink® and TableView™ table management systems.

TableView is an innovative table management solution that allows casinos to replace their existing manual rating process with the ease and simplicity of electronic automation. Casinos can create an almost paperless environment in the pit and eliminate the delay of manually entering and updating ratings into the casino management system.  TableView is perfectly placed to enable operators to drive new innovations such as real time table data collection and anonymous tracking technologies.

Shufflink System

Shufflink creates a network and user interface that collects real time data from utility products, including shufflers, chippers, and related table peripherals for table performance analysis and player ratings. This advanced product not only provides new metrics and reports to significantly enhance a pit operation’s ability to quickly identify and forecast improvement opportunities and operating constraints, but a powerful middleware data bus enabling vital live data flow into a casino data ecosystem that can be leveraged for system integrations for surveillance, security, and other applications.

iVIEW® Web Content Management

The iVIEW 4 web-based content management solution allows for drag-and-drop content design within an exclusive web interface to create new iVIEW content and publish it to the casino floor. With analytics, rules, and scheduling features, the iVIEW 4 empowers a new level of player engagement for casino marketers.

From the Company’s proprietary table games portfolio, highlights this year will include 5 Treasures Baccarat™, EZ Baccarat®, Face Up Pai Gow Poker, Paris Poker, Blazing 7s Pontoon and Vegas Blackjack Fever. They are also all linked via the new GM Atlas™ jackpot system.

Increased connectivity allows QUARTZ HYBRID to connect to up to 50 individual gaming tables.

In addition, Scientific Games will showcase its innovative Stadium Casino War™ and Stadium Three Card Poker™. Combining two of the most successful table games with ETG stadiums, the stadium products give the player an opportunity to play their own game on a terminal with added interactive components from a stadium environment.

Scientific Games, the global leader in shufflers, chip sorters and other utility products, showcases leading and new innovations.

  • ShuffleStar® is a cutting-edge, low-profile front-loading shuffler that shuffles four to eight decks continuously. It is a revolutionary high-speed flat dealing shoe with sophisticated card recognition using two cameras.
  • Chipmaster-S™ is an exciting roulette product that will instantly improve game play, taking chip sorting and game security to a whole new level. Effectively and silently sorting up to 500 chips per minute, the Chipmaster-S delivers stacks of 20 chips right to the table surface – no mess, no hassle. There is no longer a noisy device behind the roulette table where the dealer has to dive for sorted chips. Chipmaster-S delivers exactly what is needed, where it’s needed.
  • Safe-Shoe™, a groundbreaking intelligent shoe with advanced technology and a compact design, features card-stop security to prevent the dealer from overdrawing and under drawing. Safe-Shoe can be used with any manufacturer’s cards.

Philippines Continues Chasing POGOs Despite Reports of Closures

Philippines Continues Chasing POGOs Despite Reports of Closures
Reading Time: 2 minutes


The Philippine government has said that it will not be easing up on its pursuit of outstanding taxes from Philippine Offshore Gaming Operators (POGOs) despite revelations that some of them had shut down and left the country.

As per reports, two licensed POGO operators and several service providers have closed operations due to stringent tax rules imposed by the Bureau of Internal Revenue and statements from gaming regulator PAGCOR that no POGO would be allowed to resume post-COVID until all liabilities were paid.

PAGCOR Chairman and CEO Andrea Domingo named Suncity Group and Don Tencess Asian Solutions as the two POGOs to have left, although Suncity denied this was the case when contacted by Inside Asian Gaming.

“Suncity Group spares no effort to develop itself as a global integrated VIP entertainment conglomerate. The junket business in Manila is definitely important to us and we can’t find any reason to leave Manila at this particular moment,” the company said.

“In regards to the comment provided by Mdm Andrea Domingo, we think she is referring to telebetting services, which has nothing to do with the junket business that Suncity Group operates in Manila. We will continue to develop our VIP entertainment business in licensed gaming operators in Manila, and provide seamless VIP services to our guests,” Suncity said.

Nevertheless, the authorities insisted that they will continue to crack down on POGOs.

“I think Secretary Dominguez will not budge from the position that they need to pay all their taxes, including the franchise tax,” said Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, referencing Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III.

“Now, although the President has said we need all the resources, all the revenues that we can derive from all, including POGO operations to fund Covid-19 response of the government, I think the bottom line is they have to settle their tax obligations,” Harry Roque said.
