Bart Shuldman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said: “The Epic 3000 is a fantastic addition to our lineup of award-winning Epic casino and gaming printers and reflects the efforts of our team to make this innovative and highly reliable solution available to the broader lottery market. Together with Epicentral, our Epic printers clearly demonstrate to customers worldwide our unwavering commitment to ongoing investments in technology and innovation. Attendees will have the opportunity to see our full lineup of gaming and lottery industry printing solutions and our entire team is eager to demonstrate that our printers provide the reliability they count on and deliver the efficiency they need to provide guests with an uninterrupted experience. The advantages our Epic printers provide operators are evident in our ability to steadily increase our market share with operators around the world.”
The lottery launch will take pride f place alongside Epicentral, the industry’s only enterprise-level promotion and bonusing software suite that allows casinos to deliver, in real-time, targeted coupons directly to their customers at the slot machine or electronic table game.
Deployed alongside the company’s ServerPort and Epic 950 ticket printer, Epicentral provides casino marketing teams with an unmatched, easy-to-use software suite that enables the design and delivery of floor-wide promotions at the click of a button, vastly simplifying the process of attracting, rewarding and retaining players.
In particular, promotions can be designed to run using a wide variety of criteria, including uncarded player time on machine, coin in, carded player data, rated player data, earned rewards and randomly awarded prizes.
“As competition for the player wallet continues to increase industry-wide, casinos more than ever are demanding solutions that drive meaningful improvements in their floor performance and help them grow their business. Given this environment, momentum for Epicentral is building as more casinos understand and appreciate the clear value proposition of the system’s real-time promotional delivery capabilities,” said Bart Shuldman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TransAct Technologies. “We believe Epicentral is a game-changing solution and are excited to demonstrate at G2E 2015 its proven success, including one example of a 1,000 per cent return on investment and another of a 100% increase in lower-tier Average Daily Theo (ADT).”
The award-winning Epic printing solutions for gaming devices and self-service kiosks on display at G2E 2015 will include Epic 950 – 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’s full compatibility with Epicentral provides for the real-time delivery of eye-catching personalized promotions and bonus offers directly to players at the gaming machine. Furthermore, its TicketBurst technology easily eliminates player/ticket interference.
The Epic 880 will also be on show. This compact printer for all types of gaming machines (including amusement with prizes, skill with prizes and video lottery terminals), the Epic 880 features a modular design that is configurable to nearly any space, a variable length ticket presenter and ticket retract capability. It also offers auto paper loading and can accommodate 4-inch or 6-inch paper rolls.
The Epic 883 meanwhile is a higher resolution version of the company’s popular Epic 880 printer, this compact kiosk printer delivers clear graphic and text reproduction capabilities at resolutions up to 300 dpi. The Epic 883 is compatible with a wide variety of applications including amusement with prizes (AWP), skill with prizes (SWP), and video lottery terminals (VLT).
Also on show will be the Epic 430. With an easy-to-configure modular design, the Epic 430 is ideal for casino operators’ customer self-service kiosks. The printer features variable length tickets with graphics and coupons capabilities, quick paper roll changes, a fast print speed and an array of standard paper sensors.
Finally, the Epic 950 addresses a growing need in the marketplace, taking the reliability and flexibility of the Epic 950 to two new locations beyond the slot machine. The TableTop Enclosure brings together an Epic 950 and power supply in a tidy, compact design for use at table games, players’ club desks and cash desks. The new In-Table Enclosure allows the Epic 950 to be mounted underneath the table game, presenting tickets via a bezel that rises up through the table.
