ABSTRACT
An interview with Lou White, chief executive officer of gaming company PokerTek Inc., is presented. When asked what the obstacles to people embracing the company's new interactive gaming table were, he responded that a segment of players don't like the idea of an automated dealer. White also believes that being backed by the company Aristocrat Gaming gives his company credibility.
