In November 2018, the Tournament Management system went live after an extensive period of testing and customization. The system was then enhanced in December 2018 to include Waitlist with inbound and outbound SMS messaging. The system continues to be enhanced adding new features and integrating functionality with The Star’s casino management systems, Paltronics said.
The GES Poker Management System utilises web based and wireless technologies and iOS or Android devices embedded in the float tray of each poker table.
