LAS VEGAS, May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Genesis Gaming Solutions, Inc., a leader in table games management and player tracking systems, announced today that it will install its BRAVO Pit table management and player tracking system in the casino of the newest Carnival Cruise Line ship, Carnival Sunshine. Scheduled to set sail in May 2013, Carnival Sunshine is the result of the company's extensive refurbishment of the former Carnival Destiny. Touted as the largest ship in the world when it first launched in 1996, Carnival Destiny is undergoing a record-setting 49-day, $155 million transformation to become Carnival Sunshine.
The BRAVO Pit system, which will be installed on Carnival Sunshine's gaming tables, is a complete table game management and player tracking system designed for more efficient player ratings and pit management utilizing electronic data collection. BRAVO Pit allows for easy input and tracking of all ratings and management functions. Players are rated electronically and given credit for play immediately.
Carnival Sunshine will also install the BRAVO Pit Card and Chip Detection (CCD) System, which uses patented technology featuring light sensors embedded under the table felts to detect when cards or chips are placed in position and signals to the system that a hand is being played at that spot. The system tracks table play using exact hand counts for more accurate player rating and reward calculations, as well as correctly measured operational metrics, such as dealer speed and efficiency. Casinos can also better track any proposition or bonus bets on a game, enabling more accurate data for cost-benefit analysis of a particular bonus bet.
"We are thrilled to be a part of this momentous conversion of the Carnival Destiny into the Carnival Sunshine," said Randy Knust, President and CEO of Genesis Gaming Solutions, Inc. "This extensive transformation is going to produce a grander cruise ship and the BRAVO Pit system will help to make its luxury casino a first-class experience for its passengers."
The BRAVO Pit and Card and Chip Detection systems are also installed in the casino of the Carnival Dream, which was Carnival Cruise Line's largest ship at the time of its launch.
Owned and operated by Carnival Corporation, Carnival Cruise Line is the largest cruise line in the world based on passengers carried and has a fleet of 24 passenger ships.
