Mikohn Gaming Corporation recently announced that it will install its proprietary TableLink PT table player tracking system at the Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, California.

            David J. Thompson, chairman and chief executive officer, commented; “Mikohn has developed the industry’s first complete portfolio of table game management and player tracking products. The TableLink suite of products is capable of providing Pechanga’s table games management with the same on-line accounting, management information, merchandising tools and accuracy currently enjoyed by slot managers throughout the industry.”

            TableLink PT is the base module within Mikohn’s suite of table game management systems. It is upgradeable to TableLink CT, the second tier of the system, which adds automated bet recognition. TableLink GT, which is the top tier, records actual win or loss per player automatically on all blackjack games. The TableLink system may be interfaced with existing casino management systems for real-time player tracking data.

            Under terms of the contract, Mikohn will install TableLink on up to 40 tables at Pechanga’s new permanent casino. Rod Luck, Pechanga Development Corporation’s Director of Information Technology said Mikohn was chosen after an exhaustive search.

            “After a thorough evaluation of the table games automation systems currently available, it was noted that Mikohn’s TableLink solution provides the very best in terms of player ratings, table games accounting/statistical information and marketing-specific features, functions and benefits, Luck said.”

            Larry Miranda, Table Games Manager added; “TableLink will provide Pechanga with a significant advantage over our competitors. We are looking forward to utilizing TableLink to increase table utilizations, revenues and overall market share in this region.”

            Scheduled to open early this summer, the new Pechanga Resort and Casino complex will feature a 75,000-square foot casino, with approximately 2,000 state-of-the-art slot games, 63 table games, a separate 23-table poker room and a 700 seat High-Stakes bingo room.
