Smart Poker

Product: PokerTable IQ
Manufacturer: CMI Gaming

The newly formed CMI Gaming is quickly emerging as one of the major players in the gaming equipment supply industry, and the company has expanded its product line from biometric time card and door
monitor systems to the poker room management system PokerTable IQ.

The system tracks poker players with a player’s card, which places the player on a list when the card is swiped. From the waiting list, the dealer can move the player to a live game list via a touch-screen interface. Using a customizable formula, PokerTable IQ tracks poker players’ points and comps, allowing poker room operators to reward players.

The PokerTable IQ product essentially delivers slot-style marketing to the poker room. CMI Gaming President and CEO Judith Katz says PokerTable IQ is exemplary of CMI’s efforts to “provide the technology of tomorrow, today.”

CMI recently completed a three-month beta test of PokerTable IQ at the 4 Bears Casino & Lodge in New Town, North Dakota.

“We were proud to work with 4 Bears Casino and we appreciate their assistance in making our product a complete poker room management system, with player waiting list, player tracking and our poker room promotion tool,” CMI Vice President Neal Katz said in a statement.

CMI is focusing on providing innovative products to smaller casinos such as 4 Bears, filling a niche that the company thinks is often overlooked.

Mitch Bintliff, the poker room manager at 4 Bears, said that PokerTable IQ is “perfect for six- to 20-table poker rooms like ours. It puts a sophisticated poker tracking system into the price range of small to mid-sized poker rooms.”
