About Shark Trap Gaming and Security Systems

Shark Trap™ Gaming & Security Systems (ST) started with the premise that technology had advanced to the point where it should be possible to develop a system for detecting all forms of marked cards, and that such a system could be offered to the casino industry in an automated, unintrusive, reliable, cost-effective platform that would transcend table-game security.

The first challenge was to fully define the marked card problem. To address the main questions surrounding this vast and illusive topic, ST embarked on a ground-breaking study that carefully examined the marked card problem from every conceivable angle.

Research then commenced in the computer vision field. Across the board, whether it was the sophistication and capabilities of cameras, sensors, lighting components, processors, memory, data management, or analytics, the computer vision field was exploding with advances and innovations.

To house the necessary card-marking-detection technology, it was immediately apparent that shuffling machines were best suited for the job. After talking with several operators to get their feedback about the pros and cons of today’s shufflers, their invaluable input became the starting point for developing a complete line of random-selection shufflers, each with one or more attributes specifically designed to address various wide-spread concerns.

Finally, it was determined that shufflers working together and sharing data was the ultimate way to ensure accurate results. The idea of a server-based system of networked shufflers was advanced, and after many months of research, several technical conclusions began to evolve in the following areas:



  • the best technologies for detecting all forms of playing card anomalies
  • the best analytics for evaluating, detecting, and confirming the data
  • the best system for communicating the results to management, surveillance, and security personnel

Enter Shark Trap™ Gaming & Security Systems.


"After three years of extensive research and development, and after only a few months of sharing the Shark Trap project with industry insiders, the response has been overwhelming, so I wanted to pass along my sincere gratitude to the rapidly growing list of casinos and cardrooms that have offered to field-test and place shufflers, and who have expressed a can’t-wait enthusiasm for the Shark Trap system.

The good news is that we've recently finalized everything (design, manufacturing, etc.) needed to move forward on all fronts. The expectation is to be filling shuffler orders as soon as mid-2018 while continuing to advance our proprietary Shark Trap technology in ways that will unquestionably change the way the industry operates and protects table games.

LAS VEGAS, NV. – July 11, 2019

Shark Trap Gaming & Security Systems has received CERTIFICATION for the first of its ‘super shufflers’ from Gaming Labs International (GLI). GLI successfully conducted all prerequisite tests on Shark Trap’s Novelty-Game Shuffler—essentially identical to Shark Trap’s Poker Shuffler and 1-2 Deck Blackjack Shuffler other than a few minor design/operational features.


LAS VEGAS, May 29, 2019

Shark Trap Gaming & Security Systems, LLC, has submitted the first of its “super shufflers” to Gaming Laboratories International (GLI).  GLI will be testing Shark Trap’s Novelty-Game Shuffler, which is essentially identical to Shark Trap’s Poker Shuffler and 1-2 Deck Blackjack Shuffler other than a few minor design/operational features.

GLI’s primary objective will be to evaluate the ST shuffler for randomness.  We’re confident that the shufflers will pass GLI’s entire suite of tests because the ST shufflers are the first casino shufflers to incorporate 'true random number technology' (TRNG) instead of the industry standard, 'pseudo random number technology' (PRNG).  The advantage of a TRNG is that each seed for each random number is generated by physical phenomenon (hardware), resulting in true randomness.  The seeds for PRNGs are arithmetic-generated via software and are therefore deterministic. 

We will announce the results as soon as GLI completes the certification process.  

We are also busy completing the early design work for Shark Trap’s Round-to-Round Multi-deck Shuffler and its ground-breaking Baccarat and Punto Banco Security Platform, which offers unequaled game protection while eliminating the need for preshuffled cards!

More announcements are forthcoming as we continue our quest to offer Shark Trap’s line of “super shufflers” to an eagerly-awaiting industry.

Thanks for your patience . . . in terms of productivity, card costs, game protection, and innovation, I promise the wait will be worth it!

Making Progress and Picking Up Speed

Las Vegas - January 14, 2019 - Shark Trap is on the verge of several major breakthroughs that will be announced in 2019. With shufflers just weeks away from submitting to GLI for certification and patents filed for our revolutionary Baccarat and Punto Banco Security System—eliminates the need for preshuffled cards!—Shark Trap has finally forged ahead after an unfortunate delay due to a change in engineering firms.

Today, Shark Trap takes another giant step forward. We are proud to announce that we have entered into an agreement with Aces Up Gaming for the exclusive right to distribute Shark Trap’s complete line of super shufflers in the United States.

After several meetings with the principles of Aces Up Gaming, headed by their president, Charlie Drennan, we found them to be the perfect match for our shufflers and most importantly, our vision.

Aces Up Gaming brings several notable attributes and assets to the table. In addition to the obvious—licenses in virtually all US jurisdictions—they have a fierce, competitive mindset and desire to offer only the very best gaming products to the industry, an innate understanding of the industry, and an impressive suite of new games and progressive system that will compliment our shufflers.

Aces Up Gaming’s product development manager, Todd Taylor, had this to say about the partnership:

“I believe this is the most revolutionary gaming product in the last twenty years. To say it is a game-changer would be an understatement. It has the ability and capacity to be on every gaming floor in the world.”

A partnership with Aces Up Gaming is a pivotal step for Shark Trap and we are excited about joining forces and capitalizing on the synergy between our companies.

We expect the next important announcement to be GLI approval, which we anticipate to be a straightforward process, given that we’re employing the most sophisticated RNG technology ever implemented into casino shuffling machines.

Until next time, please be patient . . . Shark Trap is almost to the finish line.

New! SHARK TRAP 2018 UPDATE -GLI - Distribution - GC Baccarat System


Shark Trap Gaming & Security Systems, LLC, continues to make steady progress in their quest to introduce the world’s first ‘super shufflers.’ Shark Trap shufflers are ‘smart shufflers’ that offer many advantages over traditional shufflers including no-batch platforms (only one deck required for one-deck novelty games, not two decks; only six/eight decks required for baccarat, not twelve/sixteen decks), reduction in card costs, faster and more productive games, and the capability to detect all forms of marked cards and asymmetries.

Shark Trap is making three major announcements in advance of the 2018 G2E.

First, Shark Trap has begun the GLI approval process and anticipates certification on or about January 2019. Moreover, customers are waiting to field test the units.

Second, Shark Trap is on the verge of announcing an exclusive distribution/licensing partnership that will facilitate the placements of shufflers both in the USA and abroad.

Third, Shark Trap is releasing some of the details about its ground-breaking ‘GC-Bacc System’ for baccarat, which features their one-of-a-kind round-to-round shuffle (patent to be issued in early October, 2018).

Here are just a few of the features:

• The system will be the first to increase game speed and productivity with a new
delivery system that allows each card to be dealt from a flat, forward position, which
dramatically reduces dealing distance and therefore dealing movement for every card.

• The system provides operators with more options to reduce card costs than ever before,
especially in ‘squeeze games’ where the cards are discarded after every shoe.

• Unlike any other platform in the world today, the system offers absolute protection
against marked cards and asymmetries, and we can prove it!

• The system also offers absolute protection against the most dangerous, sophisticated,
and successful baccarat scams known to exist, and many more yet to be exposed.
Examples include peek scams, cutter scams, high-tech scams, and many more.

• Finally, Shark Trap’s ‘GC-Bacc System’ for baccarat eliminates the need for
preshuffled cards! Given that preshuffled cards have become an industry staple, this
proclamation will undoubtedly raise eyebrows, but it’s true: the ‘GC-Bacc System’
renders preshuffled cards obsolete!

Shark Trap employs the same operational technology in all of its shufflers, so following GLI
approval, the expectation is that the development process will begin to pick up speed. We also expect more industry-changing announcements in the very near future.


LAS VEGAS, August 1, 2018 - SHARK TRAP ™ GAMING & SECURITY SYSTEMS has engaged with Leardon Solutions to deliver completed products for GLI approval.

Leardon Solutions is a multinational product development and manufacturing company headquartered in San Diego, California. Leardon Solutions provides world class engineering, cost effective development and high-quality manufacturing for early-stage startups all the way to Fortune 500 companies.
