However, prior to receiving the license, Mr. Holman was required to present his game concept to casino management and he selected Carmanah’s LED Sign Group to build the corresponding table games sign for the presentation.

Carmanah produced a double-sided LED edgelit table game sign based on the company’s logo, which depicts an angry Jackass with its rear hoofs ready to kick. Mr. Holman was able to impress management with the professional look of the table game and was granted a distribution license.

Whoop Ass Poker has since requested a number of additional units to be created. “Everyone loves `Carmanah’s` signs… they look great and we all love them!”, Mr. Holman stated to Tim Quan, Business Development Manager with Carmanah’s LED Sign Group. “Get ready, I will ordering even more when we get approved in Nevada.”

About Carmanah’s LED Edgelit Table Gaming Signs

Carmanah can create high-impact table game signs to match any gaming facility’s interior design and architectural theme. Carmanah’s sign technology is currently in use at more than 450 gaming establishments worldwide, including casinos, racinos and cruise ships, etc. Carmanah’s low-profile LED sign technology provides some major advantages over other lighting technologies, including:

 

  • Unique LED edge-lighting technology that is extremely bright with unparalleled clarity. Even in a loud, bustling gaming environment, Carmanah’s signs stand out and draws attention.
  • Sight lines and camera angles are extremely important for proper security and Carmanah’s low profile signage allows more location flexibility and less visual interference.
  • Carmanah’s LED edge-lighting is extremely energy-efficient. It provides high performance using up to 90% less energy than fluorescent or neon alternatives, and up to 25% less energy than many competing LED lighting technologies.
  • LEDs offer up to 10 years of operation with no maintenance.
