Hamden, CT – June 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 EMPOWER 2014, Bally Technologies’ annual Systems User Conference which will be held on June 10-12, 2014 at the Mohegan Sun Resort Casino in Uncasville, CT. TransAct (Booth B3) will have on display Epicentral®, its industry-leading promotions and bonusing print system that integrates with Bally’s casino management programs, as well as its award-winning Epic 950® ticket printer.
Installed today 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 all players directly at the slot machine or electronic table game. Operating in conjunction with the ServerPort™ installed in each gaming device as well as the Company’s Epic 950® ticket printer, Epicentral connects with all existing slot management systems – such as Bally’s iVIEW Display Manager™ – as well as all slot machines and electronic table games, regardless of manufacturer. Thanks to its unmatched flexibility, casino marketing and operations teams can easily design and run floor-wide promotions at the click of a button, eliminating the need for a floor technician to visit each gaming machine.
Epicentral continues to deliver meaningful performance in casino operations, driving clear improvements in floor-wide marketing programs. Customers have reported a 60% increase in new player enrollment in their loyalty programs, a 37% increase in weekday afternoon slot handle, a 46% average increase in slot handle on the night of a coupon-drawing promotion, a 100% increase in lower-tier player average daily theoretical (ADT), a 34% increase in the number of returning players, an 87% redemption rate of coupons that encourage mid-week visits, an 86% increase in points earned by players club members, and a 14% increase in average player time on device.
TransAct will also demonstrate its industry-leading Epic 950 gaming printer to attendees at EMPOWER 2014. The award-winning Epic 950’s proven reliability and widespread compatibility have made it the ticket-in/ticket-out (“TITO”) casino printing solution of choice. Installed on over 500,000 slot machines worldwide, the Epic 950 is fully compatible with both Epicentral and ServerPort while its TicketBurst™ technology easily eliminates player/ticket interference.
