LAS VEGAS, June 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Gaming Partners International Corporation (Nasdaq: GPIC), a leading provider of casino currency and table game equipment worldwide, announced that it has received orders from all nine casinos currently operating and licensed to operate table games in Pennsylvania.  GPI will supply table games equipment consisting of gaming tables, casino chips and other table games equipment to the casinos.  The Company recently received the necessary conditional licenses by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board to conduct business in the state.

GPI has orders to provide a total of over 400 of its custom-built table games to six Pennsylvania casinos.  GPI's hand-crafted gaming tables are designed to integrate seamlessly with the casinos' aesthetic decor while providing maximum operational efficiencies.  GPI manufactures gaming tables for poker, blackjack, roulette, craps, baccarat, and other casino table games.

GPI will also supply a total of over 2 million of its popular Paulson® line of casino chips to eight casinos in Pennsylvania.  With a long tradition of quality and experience, Paulson® chips offer the highest quality and widest selection of state-of-the-art gaming chips. Featuring their unique feel and easy handling, all Paulson chips are custom-made exclusively for each casino to accommodate their preferences and requirements.  

The company will also be equipping the casinos with precision dice, table game layouts, playing cards and other related table games equipment, including casino seating from Gary Platt Manufacturing through its recently announced distribution agreement.

"Since table games were legalized in Pennsylvania at the beginning of the year, we have been working diligently with each property to help them prepare for the launch of table games in their casinos," said Justin Woodard, Director of Sales & Business Development, Americas for GPI.  "Our sales team consulted with each casino on the wide range of options available in each of our product lines to ensure that they receive the best possible selections for their properties.  We are very pleased that they have chosen GPI as their table games equipment supplier."

"The situation in Pennsylvania is very unique.  Given the short period of time from the legalization of table games to the delivery and anticipated opening of these operations in casinos this summer, we are meeting the challenge," commented Greg Gronau, President and CEO of GPI.  "We want to thank each of our casino customers for their trust and confidence in our ability to produce and deliver these high-quality casino products in the required timeframe.  We have already commenced delivery to some of these casinos and we look forward to equipping all of them for their upcoming openings."
