Cutting Edge

Green Gaming
PRODUCT: EGM Green
MANUFACTURER: Executive Gaming Monthly

Table game supplier Executive Gaming Monthly has introduced a line of environmentally friendly casino gaming furniture, luxury lounge furniture and consulting services under the name EGM Green.

The products include poker tables, blackjack tables, roulette tables, baccarat, seating products and luxury lounge furniture, all manufactured out of eco-friendly material.

The “green” casino equipment is designed to help decrease the use of natural resources and to reduce waste. All materials used are FSC-certified, recycled or reclaimed.

The casino chairs feature an ergonomic design that allows for comfort for long playing sessions, while being sturdy enough to withstand the casino environment.

EGM Green can be used to customize a casino, hotel, spa or other resort area with environmentally friendly furniture. The furniture can be designed and manufactured according to a property’s specifications. EGM can also assist in developing an individual plan for each environment, detailing a custom plan and providing a budget for the customer’s needs. EGM Green works with Josh Dorfman (Sirius Radio’s “Lazy Environmentalist”) to help casinos live up to their corporate social responsibility initiatives.

EGM Green furniture can be purchased on the company’s website, www.egmgreen.com, or for more information call Eric Hansel, EGM president, at 201-927-3526.

Move and Play
PRODUCT: Cross-Platform Gaming
MANUFACTURER: Videobet

Server-based gaming supplier Videobet has introduced a new system that allows customers to play games continuously on traditional terminals, mobile devices and personal computers.

Called “Cross-Platform Gaming,” the system allows casino customers to establish one account balance for play on all modes of terminal, even at home in jurisdictions where it is legal. For casinos, it maximizes the revenue potential of each player and guarantees multiple revenue streams, even after patrons leave the casino room.

Players using this system would visit a traditional casino equipped with server-based, networked games, and establish an account with a bank of credits for play on the casino’s gaming terminals. He would then cash out the remaining balance, and receive the money in the form of a voucher or credits on a magnetic card.

That ticket or card can be redeemed at the cage for cash, or alternatively, the casino can create an online account for the player. That online credit can then be used to play online with third-party internet casinos, or directly on a PC on which gaming software has been installed by using a password.

The player also can download the gaming software to a mobile device—a cell phone, a PDA or another type of hand-held terminal. The player can log onto the gaming provider’s service to transfer the credits earned at the traditional casino’s server to the hand-held device.
