Real Deal Poker - Delivering Real Cards Online
Playing cards were invented over 1,000 years ago. Mathematicians state that the chances anyone has shuffled two decks of cards in the same way are infinitesimally small. The number of permutations of a deck of cards are over eighty unvigintillion, that is 80658175170943878571660636856403766975289505440883277824000000000000 ways. Or, if you shuffled one deck every second for the history of the Universe you most probably would not have repeated the deck.
Who We Are
We are; engineers, software developers, accountants, businessmen and gaming industry veterans who recognise the potential for systems that can deliver real decks of cards to online games. With the huge odds against duplicating a real deck (above) why should players have to accept that the only way to play cards online is with a random number generator (RNG). Our market research and proven delivery of over 5 million hands to more than 15,000 registered players proved the need for real decks of cards in online games, now we are making it a reality.
Real Deal Gaming LLC has developed software and hardware that allows us to deliver fully scalable numbers of decks of cards to any on-line game, as fast as RNG can provide. This year we shall be launching a real-money on-line poker network. We are also working with on-line game developers and operators to bring other products to the market. Join us!
Gene Gioia, an experienced live poker player found his online poker experience concerning. To him the cards he received did not seem random. Gene visited poker forums and found that the discussions around RNG (random number generators) being used, representing online playing cards was not favourable. Gene had what he describes as a ‘lightbulb moment’. ‘Real Deal’ was born.
Andy Gioia (Gene’s brother) is an experienced engineer and he set out to build a machine that would automate the following: Verify a new deck, read barcode (on each card), video the deck. Scramble the deck to achieve an initial mix. Stack the deck and perform a number of riffle shuffles. Video the deck sequence and digitise it.
Fundraising was completed which would allow for the manufacture of the automated systems. In 2008 Dave Cleveland PE joined Andy Gioia. In 2009 the prototypes had been re-designed and re-engineered with modular components.
The software required to digitise and deliver the decks securely to an online poker room was completed and integrated with Cyrom Poker Software. The automated system was tested and approved by iTech Labs.
The automated systems were sent to the Isle of Man and a gaming license was issued to the company by the Isle of Man Gambling Commission. In March 2010 we launched our online poker room Real Deal Poker. Within a few weeks we had 50,000 players and within a few months had dealt over 5 million hands. Players loved online poker with real decks of cards, we had proof of concept. Underfunded, Gene took the decision to close the online operation, returning 100% of player balances.
In 2017, a new, experienced and trusted management team came together to form Real Deal Gaming LLC. The automated systems have been re-designed with updated software. The patented ADS systems (Automated Dealing System) hardware has been improved. Multiple deck machines are currently in production which will allow for the provision of multiple decks to on-line games such as blackjack and baccarat.
We have been working in partnership with a major gaming software provider and operator to develop the Worlds’ only on-line poker network with real decks of cards. This will allow us to be an on-line provider of poker and B2B provider, bringing multiple brands together on one network sharing player liquidity. The network launch is planned for September 2018.
We are also in talks with providers of other on-line games to offer ADS on a B2B basis.
