Multi-Player Poker

Slovenia’s Alfastreet, which is one of the leading manufacturers of automated, multi-player roulette games for the European market, is using the G2E show to launch Multi-Player Poker, a new 10-player electronic version of Texas hold’em poker.
Individual player terminals surround a video table-top that displays the common cards for the deal and the flop, and each player has a private video interface for wagering and making decisions on each hand.
The large central video display and high-end craftsmanship used to create the multi-player unit present a quite different appearance than automated poker games currently on the market.
“We have built our poker machine with a different approach from the competition, and I can say it is a pretty unique machine,” says Matjaz Petek, marketing and sales manager for Alfastreet. “We have a lot of experience in multi-player games, and we have used all our knowledge in the field to create our new poker machine. We see a lot of potential of this new machine on the market even if we are not among the first to offer a poker machine. We already have a lot of demand, especially from our key markets.”
Alfastreet multi-player products are designed with both players and operators in mind; they are known for their player-friendly interfaces. All terminals can be equipped with bill acceptors, coin acceptors, ticket printers, player tracking and cashless systems, and support SAS protocol. All Alfastreet equipment is GLI-certified.
Alfastreet has an alliance with Atronic Americas, under which Atronic assembles Alfastreet multi-player products for sale in North American markets.
