Shelt Dual Pool BAY CITY, MI -- Gold Standard Games, formerly Shelti Inc., reports that it has commenced production of its exclusive patented Shelti Dual Pool Tables for the North American market, and they are ready for immediate shipment.

The new Dual Pool Table is 93" long and is available in the two familiar Shelti Pool Table finishes, woodgrain Sovereign Cherry and high-tech Charcoal Matrix. Information on other Shelti and Gold Standard equipment may be found online at gold-standard-games.com.

Introduced at this spring's Amusement Expo, the Dual Pool Table incorporates a 3Some option that offers players the choice of either classic pool or two new three-player games. | SEE STORY

Shelt Dual Pool The three-player selections, 5 ball (a variant of 8 ball) and Cut Throat, are played with a separate set of 15 object balls (three color-identified groups of five). The electronic pricing system allows players to select either traditional or 3Some play, and then releases the appropriate set of balls. The 3Some games can be priced differently, and the controller accommodates bonus price levels, promotional and happy hour pricing, free play, time pricing and speed pool options.

The 3Some feature is enabled by Dual Pool technology from Horizon Games Inc. (Massapequa Park, NY), which involves separate ball channels on the left and the right side of the table, with a central return chute. When the selection is made, the electronic pricing system activates a motor to position a gate on the return chute that routes returned balls to the correct channel.

Horizon Games, which offers a variety of conversion kits to upgrade legacy mechanical pool tables for electronic bank­note acceptance with enhanced pricing and promotional features, can be contacted by calling (516) 804-3384 or emailing Jed Forman at piscesjaf@yahoo.com.
