PokerTek Partners With Ameristar on Poker Tables

Technology firm PokerTek, Inc. has teamed up with Las Vegas-based gaming company Ameristar Casinos, Inc. to exclusively provide Ameristar’s properties with automated poker tables. The first Iowa installation of PokerPro automated poker tables occurred last month at Ameristar Casino Council Bluffs.
The two companies released a joint press release about the partnership’s benefits.
“Signing a corporate agreement with Ameristar is a significant event for PokerTek,” PokerTek CEO Chris Halligan said in the statement. “We value their industry leadership, and look forward to introducing our technology to their players. Council Bluffs is an ideal property for PokerPro, and we’re happy to be their poker solution of choice.”
Jerry Colgrove, table games operations manager for Ameristar Casinos, Inc., said the use of PokerTek’s technology will benefit Ameristar’s properties.
“We are pleased to partner with PokerTek for our automated poker needs,” Colgrove said. “PokerPro is a revolutionary technology, and we are excited to bring this innovative offering into our properties.”
