PokerTek Press Release

Scouring the Internet, I came across the official press release from PokerTek announcing the wonderful PokerPro machines that are going to be in the Trump Plaza on June 12. They sound awfully excited, I for one can't wait. This will just give me another reason not to go into Trump Plaza to begin with.

I am sure I will eventually check it out and I bet there are plenty of people who enjoy this type of gaming. However, I never play poker on the Internet because I don't like the idea of a computer controlling the outcome of hands. Obviouisly online poker is a huge business, so it doens't bother some people. That's their call and not mine.

However, I can't do it. I tried online poker once (maybe twice) and didn't like it. So, I am sure I will give this a nice go. Then, I will walk over to the Trop for some real poker.

PokerTek Announces Contract for First PokerPro Installation in Atlantic City, New Jersey

MATTHEWS, N.C. — PokerTek, Inc., the industry pioneer and worldwide leader in automated poker tables and related software, announced today that they have signed a contract with Trump Plaza Casino to offer PokerPro(R) for field trial. The 12 table PokerPro poker room at Trump Plaza will open pending final approval by the State of New Jersey Casino Control Commission, and will be the first automated poker room in the state.

Poker is a new gaming addition at Trump Plaza Casino and their 100% PokerPro poker room will be just steps from the Boardwalk.

"The poker room at Trump Plaza is going to be a poker player's paradise," said Jim Rigot, General Manager for Trump Plaza Casino. "In addition to opening with a reduced $3 rake, our state-of-the-art poker room will have competitive game offerings, flat screens throughout, a comfortable lounge with convenient food and beverage offerings and blackjack tables. And when you consider the increased hands per hour and mistake-free play, it becomes an obvious choice for even the most seasoned players."

"We are delighted to enter field trial in New Jersey and are particularly excited to partner with such a prominent operator like Trump Plaza," said Chris Halligan, CEO of PokerTek. "PokerPro is a great game for both operators and players and entering the prestigious Atlantic City market is a significant milestone for our Company."
