Hamden, CT – May 5, 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 upcoming SAGSE Panama 2014 to be held on May 7-8, 2014, with a primary focus on the Central American and Caribbean gaming markets. TransAct will have on display at Booth #100 at the Hotel El Panama Convention Center in Panama City, Panama, its industry-leading promotions and bonusing print system, Epicentral®, as well as its award-winning line of Epic printers for slot machines and gaming devices.
Currently installed on over 10,500 gaming machines at 11 casinos worldwide, Epicentral is the industry’s only enterprise-level software system that enables casino operators to deliver real-time targeted promotion and bonusing coupons to both their carded and uncarded players directly at the slot machine or electronic table game. It connects with all existing slot management systems, slot machines and electronic table games, regardless of manufacturer, which allows casino marketing and operations teams 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.
Designed to integrate directly with the ServerPort™ installed in each gaming device as well as the Company’s award-winning Epic 950® ticket printer, Epicentral has already proven its ability to successfully drive meaningful performance in casino operators’ floor-wide marketing operations. Customers deploying Epicentral have reported a 34% increase in the number of returning players, an 87% redemption rate of coupons that encourage mid-week visits, a 60% increase in new player enrollment in their loyalty programs, an 86% increase in points earned by both new and existing players club members, a 14% increase in average player time on device, a 37% increase in weekday afternoon slot handle, a 46% average increase in slot handle on the night of a coupon-drawing promotion and a 100% increase in lower-tier player average daily theoretical (“ADT”) on the day a random award is presented to players.
TransAct will also feature several of its award-winning Epic 950 and Epic 880® printers. Installed on over 500,000 slot machines worldwide, the proven reliability of TransAct’s award-winning Epic 950 printer has made it the ticket-in/ticket-out (“TITO”) casino printing solution of choice. Easily integrated into all game types both old and new, the Epic 950 is fully compatible with Epicentral and ServerPort and its TicketBurst™ technology eliminates player/ticket interference. The Epic 880 is a compact printer for use in a variety of non-casino gaming machines such as amusement with prizes, skill with prizes and video lottery terminals. Offering unmatched flexibility, the Epic 880’s modular design makes it configurable to nearly any space.
