system that enables casinos to internally develop marketing programs and
promotional coupons 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.
