TransAct Technologies Signs New Contract for EPICENTRAL(R) Print System

HAMDEN, Conn., Nov. 29, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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, today announced that it has signed a
new contract to install the EPICENTRAL® Print System across all
Baden-Württembergische Spielbanken GmbH & Co. KG ("Spielbank BW") group casino
properties in Germany. The EPICENTRAL® Print System will be connected to 500
slot machines and is projected to go live in various stages in 2013. The
initial installation will be at Casino Konstanz, with EPICENTRAL® being
extended to Spielbank BW's other prestige gaming operations at Casino
Baden-Baden and Casino Stuttgart.

"We are delighted to announce our first international contract to install the
EPICENTRAL® Print System at Spielbank BW casinos," said Bart C. Shuldman,
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TransAct Technologies. "Spielbank BW
casino properties pride themselves on their customer service focus and the
promotion of responsible gaming. The EPICENTRAL® Print System will allow
casino management to deliver these objectives to their patrons directly at the
slot machine."

As part of the installation process, Spielbank BW has upgraded all printers in
their slot machines to the TransAct Epic 950® printer in order to ensure full
usage of the EPICENTRAL® Print System.

"EPICENTRAL® will be a key element in our responsible gaming strategy and
gives our management teams the ability to track, manage and communicate with
our valued customers across our gaming floors in real time," said Otto
Wulferding, CEO of Spielbank BW Casinos. "We believe that such a flexible,
coupon-based print system at the machine will enhance our marketing activities
and our support for our visitors and regular clients."

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.
