Default Re: Card-shuffler

The $15 shufflers are complete junk. You have to run the cards through it several times to get a decent shuffle and that ends up taking 5 times as long as just doing it by hand. There is one option worth looking at if you can't get a casino shuffler - it's this one:

It's not on the market yet but apparently it will do a dealer shuffle (3 riffles, strips and a cut) in 30 seconds and unlike the $15 model it's 100% automatic. And it can be flush-mounted on your table. Price? $480 apparently.

Here's a video of the $15 riffler in action:

DeckMate shufflers (the ones used by casinos, mounted in the table) are $15,000.

I need an auto-card shuffler for my homegame with freinds.

This one is 15$ - is it any good (does it destroy cards) make a lot of noise ?

It sounds great.

You could always use 2 decks, when one is shuffled by one of the folders in the hands.

This way you will always have a deck ready for the next hand.

I think that this will also leave enough time to get drunk and high, since the shuffler would be a guy who isn't smoking or drinking at that time.

Works for my home game.

I think that's the first promising shuffler I've seen. The price is still a little steep, but it's much more reasonable than a Deckmate. If they can hit that price point with a quality result, I'd consider it. That being said, until it's a reality, use two decks and have someone shuffle the second while the dealer is handling the current round.

As I posted previously, I play in a bar league that is player dealt and we take turns being the dealer. I shuffle just like the guy in the video (with the cards on the table) except for the little move he makes just before a final shuffle.

A good friend of mine only has use of one arm and won't use a shuffler. It's pretty impressive to watch him shuffle and deal with one hand.
