1. A method of automatically generating a calibration file for a card handling device, the method comprising:

  • capturing, with an imaging device, a raw image from at least a portion of a card passing from a card input to a card output of the card handling device; and

    automatically generating and storing a calibration file during a calibration mode without user input, the calibration file being associable with the card handling device and a deck of cards that includes the card such that the card handling device is trained for the associated deck during a subsequent card recognition mode, wherein automatically generating the calibration file includes;

    identifying at least one parameter associated with a rank area of the at least a portion of the card;

    identifying at least one parameter associated with a suit area of the at least a portion of the card; and

    storing the at least one parameter associated with the rank area and the at least one parameter associated with the suit area in the calibration file.
