GPI Completes Macau Order

Leading table game equipment supplier Gaming Partners International has completed an order for the latest casino to open in Macau, in the Hotel Taipa Square, opposite the Macau Jockey Club.

All 125,000 chips and 28,000 plaques from GPI’s Bourgogne et Grasset brand were manufactured at the GPI plant in Beaune, France. All of them but the lowest denomination were produced with low 125KHz RFID frequency microchips. In addition, a full range of electronic reading devices was supplied with the installation of eight cage and two chip bank readers, complete with the live and cashier’s desk CIDs operating software.


“The casino was able to source directly from GPI at a cost-effective price all the necessary RFID equipment to perform chip tracking and accounting and guarantee the security of its chip bank,” said Christophe Leparoux, manager of international sales and marketing for GPI.
