1. A method for operating a card handling device, the method comprising:

  • capturing images from a set of cards with an imaging device of a card handling device as the cards pass through the card handling device during a calibration mode;

    storing the images of the cards in a non-transitory memory of the card handling device;

    automatically generating a calibration file during the calibration mode with a processor of the card handling device, and storing the calibration file in the non-transitory memory, wherein the calibration file includes parameters responsive to the processor analyzing each image of the images for card identification information related to at least one of a rank area or a suit area of the card in the respective image; and

    retrieving the parameters from the calibration file during a card recognition mode of the card handling device to determine an identity of at least one card passing through the card handling device during operation thereof.
