U.K.-based gaming equipment supplier TCS John Huxley has announced the first installation in Macau of its Blaze suite of table game products featuring “unique” LED technology on the playing surface.
The firm said it in its Thursday statement that the technology has been applied to all 150 of the new-to-market gaming tables granted to Galaxy Entertainment Group Ltd’s new property Galaxy Macau Phase 2, which opened on May 27.
TCS John Huxley said the order included a custom designed LED Money Wheel with a Double Money Wheel Blaze table; Double Dragon Sicbo Blaze tables with e-FX Elite 2 number displays; Baccarat Blaze; and Omni Baccarat Scoreboard displays.
The company added that it signed a one-year maintenance agreement to support the products.
TCS John Huxley also added 35 baccarat displays and three Double Sicbo Blaze tables to the gaming floor of Broadway Macau, a refurbished Galaxy Entertainment property that opened the same day.
TCS John Huxley is a manufacturer and supplier of products and services for all aspects of casino table gaming. The privately owned company has had representation in Macau since in 2000.
“We are extremely proud to be selected to supply such a large number of gaming tables and products for these two prestigious openings,” Rebecca Kingswell, TCS John Huxley’s managing director for Asia Pacific, said in Thursday’s statement.
“The Blaze suite of tables offer a particularly exciting and eye-catching feature to the gaming floor as well as bringing added security benefits,” she added.
TCS John Huxley describes the Blaze LED surface technology as a slimline, energy efficient LED matrix that sits below the surface of the gaming table. “Attraction sequences, number highlighting and dynamic light displays are fully customisable and integrate with e-FX displays,” it said.
“With the improved visibility of winning sections, pit bosses and security staff can also easily monitor game procedures from a distance,” the company added, saying that the product also assists dealers’ accuracy.
In a separate statement, TCS John Huxley said it first launched the LED Money Wheel at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) Asia show in Macau a fortnight ago.
Available in 52 pin or 54 pin options – depending on the region or regulatory requirements – the Asian-themed LED Money Wheel features graphics and high brightness LEDs in the design of the wheel, along with light diffusers to eliminate any risk to the customer. “The lights and size of the wheel ensures it is highly visible on the casino floor, even from a distance,” the company said.
