PokerTek’s new Tournament Software receives GLI approval for national & international distribution

GLI tests electronic gaming equipment and certifies its quality and integrity for hundreds of gaming regulators in more than 450 jurisdictions all over the world.

“This new software changes the way multi-table poker tournaments are played, offering up-to-the-minute information, interactive player statistics and endless configuration options. The information players are used to seeing online is now available in a live environment.” commented Mark Roberson, CEO of PokerTek, Inc.

PokerPro tournament software gives players complete visibility of their tournament standings and chip stacks on the new tournament leader board and on individual player screens. The new software  debuted at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino in North Carolina in early May, and was instrumental in running the first World Series of Poker tournament on twenty PokerPro tables. The tournament attracted a total of 269 players and paid the winner over $25,000 in prizes, including a $10,000 WSOP buy-in.

Recently, PokerTek reached a multi-year deal with Harrah’s Operating Company, Inc, to serve as the exclusive provider of automated poker tables at Harrah’s casinos. Harrah’s operates 50 properties in 13 states, and is expected to install PokerTek tables at its U.S casinos, pending regulatory approval on a state-by-state basis.

“PokerTek’s new tournament software allows us to deliver to our poker players exactly what they have been asking for, big tournaments and a chance to play in the WSOP. And we look forward to running more tournaments of this size in the future.” said Ron Hager, Table Games Director at Harrah’s Cherokee.
