The Merit Royal Hotel and Casino hosts multiple high-stakes poker tournaments a year, with the world’s largest roulette table, 950 of the latest slot and gambling machines, 63 live gaming tables, and a number of VIP lounges. In preparation for the World Poker Tour's Texas Hold'em poker tournament, the luxury casino hotel in Northern Cyprus decided to increase surveillance measures at its facility.

The casino needed to have comprehensive coverage to enhance both event security and the safety of VIP guests; secure premises and protect against fraud and theft; and fulfill legal requirements set by local regulators.

To improve video coverage of gaming tables and the casino floor, security engineers from Volga Elektronik installed IDIS 5MP dome cameras and the IDIS Solution Suite (ISS) video management system (VMS). The expanded surveillance system helps operators detect, verify, analyze and rapidly respond to security and safety events and meet the requirements of regulatory gaming integrity.

Malik Oğuz, Director of Security Systems at Merit Royal Hotel and Casino, said, "Our security team can quickly and efficiently respond to incidents and resolve disputes to reduce table stoppages. The result is an enhanced patron experience that builds on our reputation as one of Europe's top gaming destinations."

The Merit Royal plans to extend the system to cover hotel facilities and spacious outdoor areas, featuring two swimming pools, gardens, and a private beach.
