Tablemaker PokerTek Inc. and hotel owner MGM MIRAGE (MGM) said Tuesday that the tables would be removed July 5.

Players use the touch-screens to control action at the tables, with no chips, cards or dealers.

MGM MIRAGE officials say they found that players prefer live dealers to automatic tables.
