Gaming Partners International presented new RFID techniques that have the potential to stop fraud on the  oor


International (GPI), mainly because of the business the company does selling casino chips. But last month’s presen- tation at G2E Asia by GPI showed how receptive the company is to its cus- tomers’ needs. One product tailored to suit Asian


A


markets is the Chip Inventory System 2.0. It harnesses the company’s Radio Frequency Identifi cation technology, or RFID, to accurately track the sta- tus of all enabled chips throughout a casino. It is a technology that helps casinos increase the effi ciency of in- ventory movement, improves security and can give managers an insight into the fl oor’s operations. By tracking currency from the cage


or vault to its proper place on the gam- ing fl oor, it allows real-time monitor- ing and authentication of inventory and provides fast, accurate validation of chip amounts and serial numbers. GPI’s Kirsten Clark says the new

for Gaming Partners


generation of CIS is capable of be- ing integrated with third-party table and cage applications. “Unlike prior versions, one of


the key advantages


of Chip Inventory System 2.0 is that we’re telling operators we just want to give them access to what they need, regardless of who they work with in back of


the house. We’ll work with


them and our system will work with them.”


Another new development show-


cased at G2E Asia was the Portable Chip Reader, created for casinos that use RFID-enabled chips, but have not integrated every table with the sys- tem. T e Portable Chip Reader uses the latest Magellan Mars 24 reader with a two-dimensional antenna that can read chips en masse, or in stacks or racks. T is means it can quickly identify chip stacks of up to 20 and as many as 200 in a tray. Its high-speed reading capability


allows it to read up to 400 chips per second while simultaneously identify- ing whether the chips are authentic. Ms Clark says the portable RFID


reader gives casinos the ability to ex- tend RFID to the pit without having to invest in RFID system integration for every table. “To deploy RFID across hundreds and hundreds of tables can be a costly proposition property- wide,” she says. “Because of the port- ability, durability, read-speeds, this can be used with a group of tables so it’s available for authentication when needed and the chips don’t have to go back to the cage.”
