The PokerTek automatic poker tables have gained a foothold in the Chinese market. The tables, which show cards, pots and bets on a screen in front of each player, merge the advantages of Internet poker, lots of hands per hour and no dealer errors, with the reads, tells and repartee of live games. Creating a dynamic exclusive to the automated poker table.

Already selling nicely in Europe and the United States, PokerTek has at this time cross the threshold into the market in the Special Administrative Region of Macau. The region, which has a more laid-back legal attitude toward poker than main land China, is popular with Western tourists due to a large amount of China's international trade is conducted through this port.

The 38-storey Galaxy StarWorld Hotel and Casino, the flagship entertainment development of Galaxy Entertainment Group, has purchased five PokerTek ten-seat tables and two of the heads-up version. The decision created the first entrance of automated poker machines into China. Allowing for an impressive development in trade, and cross boarder development.

PokerTek chief executive Lou White made the agreement sound like charity when he spoke about it saying, 'Bringing PokerPro to Macau is a major milestone. Thanks to our technology, PokerPro will enable operators to offer live poker to their guests, while assisting with the issue of dealer shortages in the region.'

Recently as China is proving that poker is a classified sport, they have also opened their boards, and tournament tables to the World Poker Tour, who will also be making an appearance in Beijing in August.
