Crown Macau Opens With GPI's RFID Plaques

Casino also to use RFID-enabled chips


Gaming Partners International, a manufacturer and supplier of casino currency and other table game supplies to the gaming industry, announced that it has completed and delivered an order from Crown Macau Casino for the production for approximately 70,000 Bourgogne & Grasset high frequency (13.56MHz) RFID plaques.

GPI supplied several sets of the B&G plaques using high frequency RFID technology from Magellan. The order was also for all of the wheelchecks with its Bud Jones roulette chips.

Gerard P. Charlier, president and chief executive officer of GPI, said, "We are extremely proud to have been selected by an operator as prominent as Crown Macau for such an important casino opening. We believe that we are effectively leveraging our leadership in the broader casino currency market and we expect to create additional growth opportunities such as expanding our presence in the expanding market for RFID. We believe this order underscores GPI's position as a leading provider of RFID technology to the gaming industry and we look forward to helping make the operation of Crown Macau a success."

Christophe Leparoux, GPI's International Sales and Marketing Manager, added, "GPI plaques are unique when it comes to security, quality, durability and class. Both players and casinos expect a plaque to be much more than a piece of printed plastic, and we believe our B&G plaques provide a sense of distinction."
