EGM Green launches enviromentally friendly poker table

29 May 2008

TOMS RIVER, New Jersey -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Poker players are used to seeing green on the felt of a poker table, but when the thousands of players arrive at the World Series of Poker ("WSOP") later this month they will see their first "Green" as in environmentally friendly tournament poker table.

And the World Series of Poker winner will go home with his or her very own "Green" table courtesy of its manufacturer, New Jersey-based EGM Green. EGM Green™ Tournament Poker Table made from 98% sustainable materials will be on display at this year's WSOP. EGM Green is a venture by Executive Gaming Monthly (EGM) to bring Eco-Friendly gaming products to the casino and luxury markets. The company holds that applying sustainable design principles to poker tables and other casino products can significantly reduce volumes of waste, decrease use of natural resources and lower impacts on ecosystems. Some of the details on the table's manufacturing include:

* All wood is FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) certified

* All paints and stains used in the table are formaldehyde free

* The table is assembled with water based adhesives

The EGM Green Tournament Poker Table has not only been created using sustainable design principals and resources, but its purchase can enhance the Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System rating for the properties deploying the tables on the casino floor.

"We are pleased that the Harrah's has chosen to debut the table at the WSOP," said EGM Green President Eric Hansel. "Casinos are taking up the mantle of sustainability and leading the charge is Harrah's Entertainment, Inc. EGM Green is positioned to help drive sustainable change by offering green products developed for casinos."

The EGM Green table will be featured in the exhibit area of the WSOP in the Rio All Suites Hotel and Casino®, where representatives from both EGM Green and Harrah's will talk about what their companies are doing to tread lightly on the Earth.

The EGM Green Poker Table may soon be showing up at socially conscious casinos around the country, but it won't be sacrificing the convenience and quality that poker players are accustomed to at the table. Casinos will be able to add options that feature wood footrings, padded armrest rings, dealer accessories, 15 standard wood finishes, custom finishes and eco-friendly casino-grade poker supplies.
