June 26, 2019
Company Ships Over 3,150 Epic TITO Printers to Encore Boston Harbor, with Next-Generation Epic Edge Representing More than 60% of Total Floor
Hamden, CT – June 26, 2019 – TransAct Technologies Incorporated (Nasdaq: TACT) (“TransAct” or “the Company”), a global leader in software-driven technology and printer solutions for high-growth markets, announced today that the new Encore Boston Harbor in Everett, Massachusetts opened last weekend with the Company’s Epic Edge and Epic 950 ticket-in/ticket-out (“TITO”) printers installed in all of the property’s more than 3,150 gaming machines, with more than 60% of the installed Epic printers represented by TransAct’s next-generation Epic Edge.
“In 2005, the iconic Wynn Las Vegas was the first casino property worldwide to select the now industry-leading Epic 950 printer for all of their electronic gaming machines as the gaming industry began to adopt TITO as the standard for cash handling on the casino floor,” said Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TransAct Technologies. Now, nearly 15 years later, we are delighted that Wynn Resorts is again entrusting all of their electronic gaming machine printing needs at the spectacular new Encore Boston Harbor to our industry-leading product portfolio.”
TransAct’s next-generation Epic Edge is the new choice in TITO printers, with its 300-dpi print resolution delivering an over two-fold improvement in image quality over current industry options. The Epic Edge’s high-resolution capabilities allow it to create razer sharp images, text and barcodes, resulting in better ticket acceptance, reduced attendant calls and measurable casino floor performance improvements. Epic Edge’s eye-catching, dynamic graphic images also make it ideal for implementation alongside Epicentral. Additional highlights include firmware updates via a full speed USB 2.0 connection or directly via a micro SD card, a single rugged outer chassis with color coded rails, numerous port options (Serial, USB and Netplex), hot swap capability to eliminate game downtime, a faster ServerPort™ connection and an adjustable ticket bucket that accommodates standard and smaller, paper-saving tickets.
Mr. Shuldman added, “TransAct has been a trusted supplier to Wynn Resorts in Las Vegas and Macau for more than 14 years and we are delighted to continue our relationship with one of the industry’s iconic operators as they inaugurate the world’s next new casino and entertainment destination in Boston. We believe our Epic printers will help set Encore Boston Harbor apart and assist the world renown Wynn Resorts team to create for their customers an unsurpassed experience.”
