Poker Winning Seat Electronic GameCards

Share this
At the beginning of February, Poker Winning Seats took its first order of Poker Winning Seat Electronic GameCards. The new application of the Electronic GameCard expands it into new markets and commercial sectors as it enters the virtual and real poker tournament market.

The Poker Winning Seat GameCard allows for increased poker player interaction for tournament participants and spectators. The GameCard gives a number, and if it matches the seat number of the winner, the card holder also wins. With an interest at the players at the final table, the card gives each GameCard holder the opportunity to win instant prizes that include merchandise, tournament entries, and cash prizes.

Specifically, a person can purchase a GameCard for 5% of the entry fee of the poker tournament. If the ticket matches the seat number of the winner of the tournament, the card holder receives over 1/3 of the tournament entry fee back, including the cost of the Winning Seat ticket. The prize pool accumulated from GameCard purchases is then distributed equally among the winners depending on the total number of entrants.

Paul Dransfield, concept creator and Chief Executive of Poker Winning Seats, commented, “The poker industry believes that the Poker Winning Seat GameCard is an evolutionary step for the world of poker. The Poker Winning Seat GameCard creates extra excitement, drama and value to the global poker market. The reaction to the Poker Winning Seat GameCard has been very, very positive.”

A spokesperson for Electronic Game Card, Inc. – a company that markets games to the lottery, gaming, and promotions industries worldwide – also noted, “Electronic GameCard and the Poker Winning Seat concept takes the better of two strong proprietary technologies to produce an innovative, globally leading product, which optimizes the Electronic Game Card technology into a new, profitable market and an extensive client list.”

Endorsements for the product have already been acquired from Bellagio tournament director Jack McLelland and professional poker player David “Devilfish” Ulliott.
