Industry Standard

Originally introduced in 2002, SHFL entertainment’s Deck Mate shuffler revolutionized poker, and has been an industry standard for 10 years. The company has further improved on the proven design with Deck Mate 2, which features the following enhancements:

Speed: The Deck Mate 2 is twice as fast as its predecessor, and shuffles a deck in just over 20 seconds. This means no waiting or hand shuffling on a heads-up or fast game.

Security: Utilizing card recognition, the Deck Mate 2 identifies and displays missing, extra or unknown cards on a new remote touch-screen display. In poker, a missing or extra card dramatically affects the game—it’s no longer enough to just count the cards; players and operators have to know the right cards are there every time. Card recognition also brings sorting of the cards to the table, allowing faster setups and table closing.

Service: The Deck Mate 2 operates in a tough environment. By redesigning the shuffling method and optimizing card handling, reliability is increased and downtime is minimized.

In its debut, the Deck Mate 2 has performed beyond expectations. It is currently featured at the 2013 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.
