HAMDEN, Conn., Jan. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TransAct Technologies Incorporated (Nasdaq:TACT), a global leader in market-specific solutions, including printers, terminals, software and other products for transaction-based and other industries, today announced that it has signed a contract to install the EPICENTRAL® Print System at Resorts World Casino New York City. The EPICENTRAL® Print System will initially be connected to 2,500 slot machines and is projected to go live in the second quarter of 2013.
"We are excited to be working with Genting Group, one of the most dynamic casino resort operators in the world, as we install our EPICENTRAL® Print System at their casino at Aqueduct in New York City," said Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TransAct Technologies. "We plan to initially install EPICENTRAL® on 2,500 slot machines with the potential to extend the installation to Resorts World's other 2,500 slot machines in the near future. Further, with the EPICENTRAL® Print System, Resorts World customers will no longer need to receive coupons and promotions at various kiosks on the casino floor; instead, patrons can now receive their rewards at the slot machine, thereby increasing slot machine play, enhancing the customer experience and helping to drive increased revenue for Genting."
The EPICENTRAL® Print System – connected directly to TransAct's ServerPort™ device inside the slot machine – is an easy-to-use, cost-efficient software system that enables casinos to internally develop marketing programs and promotional coupons to be distributed to customers on a real-time basis at a slot machine via the EPICENTRAL® technology. Additionally, the system works with existing slot systems and games as it operates with a separate and distinct connection with the printer. With this, casinos will be able to use the EPICENTRAL® Print System to connect to all existing slot machines, regardless of the game's manufacturer, to drive increased revenue and enhance their customers' experience on a real-time basis.
