DigiDeal—Pik-It Poker™
In Pik-It Poker™, play three- or five-card poker—you get to decide! Pik-It Poker is a house-banked poker game where the player gets to choose to play three- or five-card poker against the dealer hand after reviewing their five-card hand. Hands are dealt face-down from a standard 52-card deck to the players. Players who wager the 3 Card Bonus bet get to choose their first three cards to turn over and make a three-card hand. If they get a pair or better, they win the 3 Card Bonus bet. After that bonus is resolved, all cards are turned over and an additional 5 Card Bonus bet pays if the five-card hand is two pair or better. Once the players review their five cards, they can play their best three-card hand, their entire five-card hand or fold. Depending on what each player chooses, the hands are compared and resolved using standard three- or five-card poker rankings. For more information, visit

Interblock—G4 Organic Virtual™
Organic Virtual™ is the most attractive video table product on the market with two basic versions available for playing with card games or roulette wheels. Virtual generators are totally independent and automated as they do not require any human assistance when simulating traditional table games. The advantage of Organic generators, in connection with play stations, also lies in the fact that the Organic Virtual range features multi-player generators, as the outcome of each individual game is identical on all connected play stations and not separate—different for every play station. A maximum of six to seven players play at a time, namely based on the philosophy and rules of this game. The difference when playing the blackjack game is that each player gets their own cards, which are divided in a sequence of already shuffled cards. Two players cannot be given the same cards. The advantage for the player is to decide how he or she wants to play the game and his decision affects the next player. For more information, visit
