including printers, terminals, software and other products for

System.As a result, TransAct will now have access to real-time session data
for players to help drive customized promotions and coupons at the slot
machines through its EPICENTRAL® System.

"We are excited to continue our mutually beneficial relationship with Bally
Technologies, a leader in games and systems technology for the casino
industry, and we worked closely with Bally to be able to integrate EPICENTRAL®
to connect to player data from Bally Systems," said Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman

core systems to provide casinos with innovative new features," said Tom Doyle,
Bally Technologies' Vice President of Systems Product Management.

The EPICENTRAL® Print System – connected directly to TransAct's ServerPort™
device inside the slot machine – is an easy-to-use, cost-efficient software
system that enables casinos to internally develop marketing programs and
promotional coupons using Bally Systems to be distributed to customers on a
real-time basis at a slot machine via the EPICENTRAL®
technology.Additionally, the system works with existing slot systems and
games as it operates with a separate and distinct connection with the printer.
With this, casinos will be able to use the EPICENTRAL® Print System to
connect to all existing slot machines, regardless of the game's manufacturer,
to drive increased revenue and enhance their customers' experience on a
real-time basis.
