Winner: Shuffle Master MD2 Shuffler
The MD2 multi-deck batch shuffler's card recognition system has the ability to read and verify every card being shuffled. Its patented platform and gripper system dramatically reduces card wear-and-tear and ensures quieter machine operation. It features an easy to read display that alerts the dealer if cards are missing or extra cards are present.
Shuffle Master's MD2 shuffler was described by the judges as not only reliable and offering a secure random shuffling of cards, but was also identified as a key factor in increasing staff productivity and reducing labour costs.
"It's very easy to use, never jams and certainly shuffles the cards better than I do," was the feedback from a casino floor staffer polled by one of the judges.
"The MD2 shuffler gives players confidence that the cards are well mixed together and that the casino is offering a fair game," added a judge.
"Shuffle Master provides immediate response to service calls, regular meetings to discuss new and innovative games/products and good follow-up on any outstanding issues. MD2 and the One2Six [Shuffle Master's multi-deck continuous shuffler] are integral components to ensure game integrity," said the judge—a judgement backed by several others.
Honourable Mention: TCSJOHNHUXLEY Chipper Champ Plus
The fact TCSJOHNHUXLEY has sold more than 4,000 units of the Chipper Champ Plus across the world tells its own story.
The equipment is ideal for high volume, fast play markets such as those in East Asia. The Chipper Champ Plus identifies and 'quarantines' suspect chips. It can sort 300 to 500 chips per minute, is simple to program without removing covers, features statistical and diagnostic reporting and is capable of integrated networking with other equipment using Internet Protocol technology.
