The Digital Poker Table
« on: November 10, 2008, 01:33:58 pm »
Have any of you seen these on location anywhere?

I saw it at that coin-op store a month ago. It's the height of a bar table, and you can play against the computer or against another person. It has a smaller LCD screen to show just your "hand". You press a button and it kinda flips up the cards to look at them, and puts them back face down as soon as you release the button.

It's neat. I forget how payment works. Pretty sure it works on a timer (but the one I played was on free play of course).

I must say, the viewing angles look quite good in the stock photos, though it's hard to tell in the last one, especially with the reflection off the glass. Also, where do you put your beer?

As I mentioned, I played one. Viewing angle was not an issue.

we have 3 or 4... none of them have made their original purchase price back. Dumping part after part into them to keep them going.

actually turned one into a 60-in-1 cabinet with pretty good results. you can solder a VGA d-sub onto the unpopulated connector on the monitor driver board and easily feed it VGA... should you feel so inclined to do something else with the pokertek.

final verdict, 5/10 - would not buy again.
