The Star shines in Portugal

CARD and Tradegame agree on a distribution cooperation

Vienna, Austria.
May 3rd, 2001

    The Austrian firm CARD, Casinos Austria Research & Development, and company Tradegame of Porto have recently announced their cooperation. The agreement foresees Tradegame to represent the famous six-deck continuous card shuffler Shuffle Star™ of CARD, amongst other equipment.

    CARD´s MD Ernst Blaha states: “We are pleased about the cooperation with Jose Meneses and his team at Tradegame, as besides the excellent customer care and relation Tradegame proved to their customers for a long time, Tradegame also has the ability of efficiently supporting customers after products have been sold.”

    Mr. Meneses, the principal of Tradegame said: “Although our enterprise has previously looked at the slots market mainly, our customers pushed us also towards table game products, with a view to innovate the rather traditional sector. The products of CARD, and specifically their know how in shuffling technology, greatly supports this need and we are really happy about the appointment.”

    The recent ICE 2001, held in London in January, proved so successful for the CARD Shuffle Star™, that the company decided to manufacture another big Star-lot. And due to the development of the US Dollar, which proves unfavourable for buyers when being quoted Dollar prices in Europe, CARD announced new Euro prices, bringing the shuffler price down dramatically, compared to previous Dollar quotes!

    We are given to understand that more good news from CARD are expected to be revealed soon!
