PokerPro installed at Horseshoe Chicagoland

North Carolina-based PokerTek, Inc. announced the first installation in Indiana of its PokerPro automated poker table, as Horseshoe Casino Chicagoland in Hammond began a field trial of several of the 10-player tables in its new 350,000-square-foot gaming and entertainment facility.

PokerPro places 10 video player stations around a video representation of the deal and flop in Texas hold ’em or Omaha poker.

“We are delighted to begin our field trial in the state of Indiana and increase our presence in the Midwest,” said PokerTek CEO Chris Halligan. “We’ve proven that players in this region accept and appreciate the benefits of automated poker. We are pleased that our partnership with Harrah’s has allowed us to be part of such an amazing property.”
