Monday, November 30, 2009 Set to Change the Face of Online Poker by Replacing RNGs with Real Cards

Automated system shuffles and deals real cards, has “cut” and “burn cards” functions

Gioia International Limited is and Red Planet Gaming Inc are launching a unique new poker site, which, unlike all other online poker sites that use random number generators (RNGs) to deal their cards, uses an automated system developed by Gioia – "Cut N’ Shuffle" and "Game Check" -- that shuffles and deals real cards and has "cut" and "burn cards" functions.

The system is designed to replicate the actual game of poker a player may experience in a casino, home game or land based tournament, including the unique provision of a “cut function” and deployment of “burn cards”, something that no other online poker site currently provides. Gioia’s patented Cut N’ Shuffle system is a fully automated, real card dealing system that scrambles, shuffles and deals real decks of cards, digitizes the results and then translates them to its online poker table games. Gioia has also designed and built the first system capable of producing post-game audit results, Game Check.

Extensive research conducted through an independent research company, feedback from players both professional and amateur clearly showed a place in the market for an online poker site that deals actual cards instead of via an RNG. The passion of Gene Gioia, the founder of and his drive to create a fair game of poker has resulted in over four years of extensive development to reach this historic point in the company’s development.

The agreement between Gioia International Limited and Red Planet Gaming Inc sees Gioia acquiring software to provide an exceptional poker playing experience at

Real Deal Poker will launch in February 2010 once integration and testing are complete. Meanwhile players can find relevant information and sign up at the site that is currently taking sign ups and enabling players to reserve their preferred screen names.

Gene Gioia, Founder and CEO of Gioia International Limited commented: “This is a unique moment in the company’s history. In addition to assembling a first rate management team, we have found in Red Planet Gaming Inc a partner who shares our passion for bringing a truly fair game of poker to players around the world and changing the face of poker online as we know it today.”

Vahe Baloulian, CEO of Red Planet Gaming Inc added: “I have never seen someone as committed as Gene Gioia to bringing a truly remarkable product to the market. His passion and understanding of what poker is about has resulted in a product that will make the poker world sit up and take note.
