MGT Capital Buying Online Poker Tech, No Terms Disclosed
MGT Capital Investments, Inc. (NYSE: MGT) announced today that its majority owned subsidiary MGT Interactive, LLC has acquired certain assets from Gioia Systems LLC, the inventor and owner of a proprietary method of card shuffling for the online poker market. Trademarked under the name Real Deal Poker, the technology uses patented shuffling machines, along with permutation re-sequencing, allowing for the creation of up to 16,000 decks per minute in real time. Each newly created deck is then "dealt" for a hand of online poker, complete with burn cards and the option for a player to "cut" the deck. In addition to providing a higher level of realism, each deck provides an authentic randomized deal and full audit trail; both missing from currently used random number generating algorithms.
