Casino ticket printer and player management software provider TransAct Technologies Inc says it is demonstrating a “full suite” of its gaming sector products by having for the first time a standalone booth at the MGS Entertainment Show, an annual casino industry trade show and conference this year being held from today, Tuesday, until Thursday.
“This year marks the first in which we will have our own standalone presence at the Venetian Macao, allowing our team to interact directly with customers as we detail how our solutions line-up provides players with an engaging and seamless gaming experience,” said Bart Shuldman, TransAct’s chairman and chief executive, in a company press release on the event.
That product line-up includes Epicentral v3.8, the latest generation of TransAct’s proprietary software system that enables venue operators to engage non-members of casino loyalty schemes – as well as members – at the gaming machine via things including games within games and tailored promotions; and which can segment players by value tier.
Epicentral SE – the ‘systems edition’ of Epicentral, works with venue operators’ gaming management systems to enable them to print and deliver free play vouchers directly to players, which the players can then redeem at the slot machine in the same play session.
TransAct’s line-up of ticket-in, ticket-out (TITO) printers on display at the MGS Entertainment Show 2017 will include the new, purpose-built Epic Edge TT and Epic 950 TT table top printers alongside the Epic Edge and the widely distributed Epic 950.
The Epic Edge offers operators 300-dpi print resolution for play tickets, that TransAct says is a 50 percent improvement on current printers. The firm says the quality of ticket barcodes produced by the product enhances the rate of ticket acceptance by bill validator equipment installed in slot machines, and reduces attendant call outs.
Epic Edge TT and Epic 950 TT are tabletop versions of TransAct printers, and are designed for table games, players’ club desks and cash desks.
Mr Shuldman said his firm was “delighted” as a “long-term supporter” of the Macau casino industry, to “reaffirm our commitment to the market’s world-class operators by demonstrating our unrivalled technology and print solutions”.
He added: “The entire TransAct team is excited to work with our customers at the show to deliver our unmatched customer service and demonstrate the fruits of our continued innovation.”
TransAct is at stand AF26.
