Gaming Partners International (GPI) has been named as the primary supplier of table game equipment for Wynn Resorts’ US$2.6 billion Encore Boston Harbor.
The company revealed overnight that it has received a “significant order” from Wynn for its new Boston integrated resort, due to open in July 2019, including more than 200 custom designed gaming tables “fully accessorized for operation”, RFID enabled gaming chips and high value gaming plaques, CIS functionality in the casino cage for currency validation and authentication, custom poker equipment, dice and various support equipment to secure gaming integrity.
The order comes just a few weeks after a proposed deal that would have seen MGM Resorts purchase the Massachusetts property from Wynn fell through. Wynn Resorts had earlier last month been fined US$35 million by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission for its failure to report allegations of sexual abuse against former Chairman and CEO Steve Wynn, but was allowed to retain its state gaming license.
GPI was acquired on 1 May by Japan-based playing card manufacturer Angel Holdings Godo Kaisha in a US$110 million deal.
