PokerTek, Inc. (Nasdaq: PTEK) today announced that its planned rollout of Blackjack Pro on the ProCore gaming platform continued to gain momentum, with several new installations going live at the end of June. The latest installations increase the total installed Blackjack Pro gaming positions to 96, with all available inventory now fully deployed on cruise ships and land-based casinos.
“Blackjack Pro continues to perform exceptionally well in the field, and player feedback has been overwhelmingly positive,” commented Mark Roberson, PokerTek’s Chief Executive Officer. “The successful launch of Blackjack Pro on the ProCore platform opens up tremendous new opportunities as we diversify our product line and expand our installed base.
“Demand has exceeded our inventory during this initial rollout phase with our available supply now fully absorbed. In response to the favorable product performance and customer demand, production is underway to provide additional inventory for second half installations.”
Running on PokerTek’s new ProCore hardware, Blackjack is the first game to be offered on this highly-versatile platform. Blackjack Pro is a six-seated automated table game that deals the traditional game of blackjack for one to six players. Games can be configured with limits and rules to meet the requirements of any property, and multiple side bets add an extra element of fun for players and profit for operators. The thoughtful design allows the tables to fit seamlessly into a traditional table-games pit and will accommodate additional games in the future.About PokerTek, Inc. PokerTek, Inc.
