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 Table Management Solution

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.

Making its global debut, QUARTZ™ HYBRID will feature prominently on a raised platform. Running on Scientific Games’ exclusive operating system ArgOS, QUARTZ™ HYBRID will integrate with live dealers on baccarat, roulette and sic bo.

Updated content includes a new player interface that adds game statistics as well as dealer display. Players can choose to view multiple games at any one time, from single, quad to octal view. 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.

Japanese government has delayed the establishment of Casino Management Board and issuance of the more specific IR bidding regulations in Japan. It is widely assumed that having public attention focused on the IR issue will negatively impact the electoral prospects of the ruling conservatives.

The ruling party now looks inclined not to take up the IR issue until early 2020, seriously impacting the schedules of some local governments. Such a delay may be the death blow for Osaka’s plans to have its anticipated Yumeshima IR opens its doors ahead of the 2025 World Expo, although that remains to be seen.

9stacks Launches Pokerface With Gopal Datt: India’s First Poker Chat Show

9stacks Launches Pokerface With Gopal Datt: India's First Poker Chat Show
Reading Time: 2 minutes


Pokerface with Gopal Datt is a first-of-its-kind poker chat show which celebrates the lives and stories of poker players. This first episode can be watched on the 9stacks YouTube Channel here. Episode 2 of the series was released on Friday, 17th May 2019, on the 9stacks YouTube channel. The episode that has Datt interview poker heavyweight Deepak Bothraand TVF Bachelors fame Badri Chavan, can be watched here.

The twist is that each episode features one actor/celebrity and one poker player, and gets both to spill the beans about their journey to fame and fortune. In a fun way, this draws parallels between the featured celebrities and poker players and celebrates the achievements of both guests.

The first episode of the show, hosted by Gopal Datt (the Internet’s very own funny man), features Amol Parashar, of TVF Tripling fame, and one of India’s top poker players Nishant Sharma. Last year Nishant won the highest ever prize money by an Indian poker player at the World Series of Poker Main Event in Las Vegas.

Nishant, along with fellow poker pro Vivek Rughani, was part of the 9stacks Team India at the World Series of Poker and they became the first two Indians to enter the top 100 in the prestigious WSOP Main Event. Read the article here.

In the episode, Nishant speaks candidly about achieving his poker dreams and how he became a ‘Hero’ for other players in the industry. Many players now come to him for advice on their gameplay and some even ask him for selfies. His ‘Bina Darre’ playing style has won many hearts.

Nishant is accompanied by the celebrated actor Amol Parashar, who is also an avid poker player himself. An IIT Delhi alumnus, Amol was always into acting and was very interested in theatre. Amol recalled how his poker skills helped him sniff out a bluff early in his career: “Once I was offered a film with big casts like Mr. Amitabh Bachhan, Naseeruddin ShahSharman Joshi. Since I was new in the industry, I was asked to attend the workshop for the same where I was asked to pay Rs. 15,000 as room rent. I couldnt help but smell a bluff there. I mean, after all, if they were such a big film company, they surely wouldn’t ask me to pay Rs. 15,000 to book a room to rehearse in, right?”

Many more revelations came in the rapid fire segment of the show where the answers were ‘rapid and full of fire’. Unlike Koffee with Karan, the guests here got a lot of love instead of hampers!
