PokerTek Inc. (PTEK) filed Quarterly Report for the period ended 2009-09-30.

PokerTek, Inc. was formed to develop and market the PokerPro system, an electronic poker table that provides a fully-automated poker room environment, to tribal casinos, commercial casinos, and card clubs. This system is designed to increase casino revenue by increasing hands per hour, while helping to reduce the labor costs within poker rooms, and is also designed to increase players' gaming experience by eliminating dealer and player mistakes, and eliminating the need for dealer tipping. Pokertek Inc. has a market cap of $9.5 million; its shares were traded at around $0.78 with and P/S ratio of 0.7.

Highlight of Business Operations:

Depreciation of PokerPro systems decreased by $12,502 (2%) to $663,633 for the three months ended September 30, 2009 as compared to $676,135 for the three months ended September 30, 2008. Cost of product sales decreased by $1.9 million (91%) to $0.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2009 as compared to $2.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2008. This decrease in cost of sales was attributable to the lower unit product sales of both PokerPro and Heads-Up Challenge.

In addition, we incurred interest on our capital lease of $1,143. During 2008, our interest expense was partially offset by interest income earned on our ARS investments, which were liquidated on January 5, 2009.
