GTECH will reveal its new poker products for online and iPad tablets. The firm said its new platform had been designed and rewritten to to address the changing dynamics of online poker, with special emphasis placed on preparing the platform for multiple channels and networks.

Thumb-controlled tablet game play, which the firm claims to be an industry-first, allows users to carry out all poker-playing functions using just their thumbs.

“GTECH’s new thumb-based tablet features and rebuilt poker platform provide tangible proof of the company’s commitment to making all of our games available for mobile,” Matteo Monteverdi, GTECH senior vice-president of igaming, said.

Alongside GTECH, Great Luck will also use the event to unveil its first-to-market electronic Class II iGaming platform.

Led by Native American gaming executives, the new enterprise will focus on the technological development, marketing and legal deployment of a full suite of igaming services designed to benefit sovereign Indian nations and other affiliate partners.

The firm will showcase its free-play beta version before its expected deployment by the Alturas Indian Rancheria Tribe in North Carolina later this year.

Great Luck claimed it will become the first web browser-enabled, nationally accessible iGaming destination in the US.

The platform centres around a proprietary Virtual Private Network Assisted Play System (VPNAPS), which allows users registered in regulated areas to gain access to Class II games and expanding access to Class II games that reside on a Tribe’s trust land.

It will be accessible via any web browser on computer, Android, iOS and tablet mobile devices

“At a time when online-focused gaming developments are accelerating in New Jersey, Nevada and Delaware, the introduction of our company and our alternative web browser-based technology represents a meaningful, nationally deployable solution for the industry," Joseph Valandra, chief executive of Great Luck, said.
