Hamden, CT – March 18, 2014 – 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 announced today the Company’s participation at the Caribbean Gaming Show & Summit 2014. Held at the Puerto Rico Convention Center (Booth 13) in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on March 19-20, 2014, the fifth annual Caribbean Gaming Show & Summit attracts over 200 casino and resort operators from across the Caribbean. TransAct and its global distribution partner Suzo-Happ will provide attendees with a close look at the powerful results enabled by the industry-leading Epicentral® Print System as well as the Company’s award-winning family of Epic printers.
Epicentral, the industry’s only enterprise-level promotion and bonusing software system, enables the floor-wide real-time delivery of targeted promotions and coupons directly to players at slot machines and electronic table games. It connects with all existing slot systems, slot machines and electronic table games, regardless of manufacturer, allowing casinos to quickly and easily design and run floor-wide promotions with the touch of a button, eliminating the need for a visit to the gaming machine by a floor attendant for printer and/or device configuration. This comprehensive solution is designed for use with the ServerPort™ installed in each gaming device as well as the Company’s award-winning Epic 950® ticket printer, whose industry-leading reliability and floor-wide compatibility will also be on display at the Caribbean Gaming Show & Summit 2014.
With installations across 10 sites and over 8,000 gaming machines, Epicentral is delivering proven performance on a daily basis. Customers that have deployed Epicentral are reporting a number of performance enhancements, including: a 100% increase in lower-tier player average daily theoretical (“ADT”) on the day a random award is presented to players; an 87% redemption rate of coupons targeted at carded players; a 73% boost in coin-in for a single one-hour promotion; a 40% redemption rate of coupons that encourage bounce back mid-week repeat visits; a 30% bump in new player loyalty club enrollment in less than 90 days; and, a 25% increase in players qualifying for top-tier status.
The joint display will also feature several of TransAct’s award-winning Epic printers, including the Epic 950 and the Epic 880®. Installed on over 500,000 slot machines worldwide, the award-winning Epic 950 features proven reliability that has made it the ticket-in/ticket-out (“TITO”) casino printing solution of choice. Easily integrated into all old and new game types and fully compatible with Epicentral and ServerPort, the Epic 950’s TicketBurst™ technology eliminates player/ticket interference. The Epic 880 is a compact gaming receipt printer used in a variety of non-casino gaming machines such as Video Lottery Terminals, Fixed-Odds Betting Terminals, Amusement with Prizes machines and Skill with Prizes machines. Offering unmatched flexibility, the Epic 880 offers a modular design that is configurable to nearly any space.
