On Thursday, Motley Fool Stock Advisor selection Shuffle Master
Shuffle Master's stock is hovering around three-year lows. This is largely because of the company's indigestion related to the acquisition of Australia's Stargames, which brought the Rapid and Vegas Star electronic table games lineup, as well as a slot business. Despite the less-than-thrilling results over the past couple of years, Shuffle Master is still the dominant player in the table games business. That dominance includes its control of the growing market for automatic shufflers, table games, and electronic table games, including the wildly successful Rapid Roulette.
Though the companies haven't yet announced the terms of the deal, investors can at least take heart in the fact that this acquisition will almost certainly go down far easier than the Stargames play.
