US – JCM validators process $72.3m at MGM National HarborBy Phil - 14 March 2017
In the property’s first three months, the 3,237 slots at MGM National Harbor, protected by JCM Global’s award-winning iVIZION bill validator, have processed more than $72.3m.
JCM won 100 per cent of MGM National Harbor’s bill validator and printer business, and JCM’s iVIZION bill validator and GEN2 U thermal printer are installed on each of the property’s slot games.
In January of this year, analysts stated Maryland was America’s best regional gaming market in 2016. Across Maryland, JCM products validated $74,375,419 in December 2016, and $67,696,441 in January 2017, and $69,656,279 in February 2017 for a state-wide combined total of $211,728,140.
JCM Vice President of Worldwide Marketing Tom Nieman said: “We have had the absolute pleasure of working with National Harbor Vice President of Slot Operations Alex Alvarado, and his vision for this property today and into the future continues to inspire our innovative spirit at JCM. We are honored and humbled to have won 100 percent of the bill validator and printer business. We are thrilled to see the property doing so well and to have our iVIZION and GEN2 U products more than living up to expectations and demand, as they are across the State of Maryland.”
“MGM National Harbor is a luxury resort casino designed to be a monumental experience for our guests”, said Mr. Alvarado, “however, we also wanted to continue our efforts as an innovation leader in the gaming industry. When JCM presented the iVIZION bill validator, along with the company’s future road map, we recognized the opportunity to advance technology in gaming, with a like-minded vendor. We are very pleased with its performance, along with the GEN2 U, particularly in light of the high and steady volume our casino has experienced.”
JCM’s landmark iVIZION is the Foundation of Intelligent Validation and its Contact Image Sensor (CIS) technology scans 75 times more data points than any bill validator in its class, capturing the full image of both sides of a banknote or ticket.
JCM will install its next-generation GEN5 Thermal Printer at MGM National Harbor when the product becomes available later this year. JCM’s GEN5 is one of the most technologically advanced printers available, and when combined with the iVIZION bill validator, MGM National Harbor may take advantage of a wealth of modern applications using JCM’s new FUZION technology.
