iDeal – DIY Automatic Poker Dealer Robot!


Well, I used to do a lot of Blackjack programming for fun and make games but this one is actually a “real” automatic poker dealer robot.

In couple years or so we should start seeing robots replacing dealers across Las Vegas.  Well, that’s if the robots do better than human counterparts…

Thanks Patrick for the tip!

  1. Will I be allowed to get a robot to play for me also?

    in a few years it might be possible for dealers to be replaced, but I highly doubt that they will be. Players are sceptical of technology; they prefer the trust and conviviality that comes from a human dealer.
