June 2017, Las Vegas – New high-tech shuffling machines will hit the market in 2018, offering a table-game platform that promises to increase productivity, reduce card costs, and attain never-before-realized levels of game protection.
Called the “Shark Trap System,” the platform features a network of super shufflers with the capability to detect marked cards, asymmetries, normal wear and tear, and much more, all in real time. The technology works tirelessly and invisibly to detect everything from the tiniest of discrepancies to blatant scams with scientific precision, and all without human intervention or the need to disrupt the games.
Shark Trap Gaming & Security Systems originally collaborated with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas’s Department of Mechanical Engineering to design and build the early prototypes. Lou DeGregorio, president of Shark Trap, stated, “UNLV has done an exceptional job getting us to the point where our one- and two-deck shufflers are ready for manufacturing.”
Also according to DeGregorio, “Based on our research, both here and abroad, card marking scams and strategies that target design asymmetries continue to be a security risk, and it’s a much bigger problem than what has been reported. Cheaters have more access to sophisticated cheating equipment than ever before from online sources all over the world, and today’s advantage players are more dangerous than their predecessors, making these threats difficult to detect until long after the damage is done.”
The Shark Trap System features cutting-edge technology and innovation that is sure to be a game changer, completely overhauling table-game traditions while providing modern solutions to age-old problems.
DeGregorio concluded, “The initial response from casinos and cardrooms has been overwhelming, as operators are begging for an alternative to the current monopoly along with solutions that truly address the needs and wishes of the industry. And now that we’re aligned with the country’s preeminent firms specializing in computer vision, software development, design, and manufacturing, together with our management team and consultants, the vision is about to become a reality!”
