Scientific Games Corporation today announced it has entered into an agreement for the acquisition of Tech Art, a supplier of hole-card readers for blackjack.
Subject to customary conditions to closing, the transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2018. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Tech Art will bring its MAXTime®4H product to Scientific Games, a combination of a blackjack hole-card reader and a chip tray, as well as the proprietary table games Super Fun 21® and Bet the Bust.
There will be an opportunity to market Tech Art’s MAXTime®4H product internationally through the company’s expansive distribution network, helping casinos across the world increase play speed and enhance the security of blackjack games.
This planned acquisition follows the announcement to bring NYX Gaming under Scientific Games’ wing.
