Galaxy Gaming—World Poker Tour Two Way Hold’em
Galaxy Gaming has teamed up with the experts at the internationally known World Poker Tour (WPT) to create a one-of-a-kind Texas Hold’em casino table game called “WPT – Two Way Hold’em.” This is a twist on a classic theme with all of the excitement and action of traditional Texas Hold’em, while offering the player the chance to win not only on their hand, but also to win on the dealer’s hand! This game is designed for all levels of poker fans. It includes the chance to add money to your wager, while allowing you to continue without having to fold to see all of the dealt cards. The poker pros at WPT have endorsed this game, and will premiere it at WPT tournaments in both Las Vegas and Atlantic City. Leading innovation in the sport of poker since 2002, WPT ignited the global poker boom with the creation of a unique television show based on a series of high-stakes poker tournaments and has become one of the most recognized names in internationally televised gaming and entertainment.

Shuffle Master—Hi Lo Stud Poker™
Hi Lo Stud Poker™ is a new paytable game from Shuffle Master, where the object is to get two pair or better. As a player, you are guaranteed five cards to make your hand, but you have the opportunity to earn a sixth and even a seventh card to increase your chances of winning! Players make an ante bet to get in the game. After wagers have been placed, they will receive their first hole card face up, and then have a choice: Check, or try to earn a second hole card. To do this, they’ll place a bet equal to the ante in either the circle marked “Hi” or “Lo.” If they bet high, they’ll want the next card to be higher (or equal) in rank to their existing card. If they bet low, they’ll want the next card to be lower (or equal) in rank to their existing card. By guessing correctly, that bet and that card remain in action. Players then have the chance to earn a third hole card by betting that it will be higher or lower than the current card. The dealer reveals the four community cards and combines them with each player’s up-card(s) to make the best five-card poker hand. For more information, visit
