Station Casinos in Las Vegas recently installed DEQ Systems Corp.’s just released EZTRAK system, a LCD-based hand tracking system that tracks statistical game play trends and side wager bets for blackjack and baccarat.
The systems were installed in Station’s Red Rock Canyon and Palace Station casinos, which cater mostly to Las Vegas-based players.
"I’m getting great reviews from both properties," said Tom Winward, Corporate Director of Slots Systems for Station Casinos. "At Red Rock, where the blackjack version of EZTRAK is installed, players are commenting positively about this new multimedia approach to tracking blackjack game data. Some are even saying that they are happy to finally be getting the same type of information that roulette and baccarat players have been getting for years.
"At Palace Station, where the baccarat version of the EZTRAK is installed, the guests are also responding positively to the new displays."
"We are pleased that Red Rock is the first casino in the state to use the blackjack version of the system," said DEQ president and CEO Earle G. Hall. "The positive customer feedback reported by Station Casinos is very encouraging and these new features of the G3 platform are definite added value to our product lines."
The EZTRAK Baccarat Edition system can be installed on any baccarat table game, including EZ Baccarat, the no-commission version of the game.
The EZTRAK Blackjack Edition system can be installed on any blackjack table. Both EZTRAK versions are based on DEQ’s G3 platform system.
The G3 is a linked bonusing, jackpot and loyalty server-based system that brings an entire suite of random, progressive, mystery and loyalty bonus solutions to table games (felt and electronic).
With the G3 platform, players can place multiple side bets on their own hands as well as on the dealer’s hand.
The system also has several mystery and random bonusing features including the Magic Card and the Lucky Player which are both awarded in high frequency, low payout fashion to keep the players’ interest.
