DigiDeal, the maker of an electronic, cardless blackjack table, has asked the Washington Gambling Commission for a permit to sell its table in casinos and cardrooms.

The blackjack table has a live dealer, and players use real chips, but “cards” are electronically dealt and displayed on video displays built into the table top.

The manufacturer says the tables eliminates cheating and honest mistakes by dealers. The device features a computer program that blackjack from a “six deck shoe.”
