Casino & Hotel in Atmore, Alabama

HAMDEN, Conn., March 19, 2013 (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 its EPICENTRAL® Print
System is installed on all approximately 1,700 games at PCI Gaming's Wind
Creek Casino & Hotel in Atmore, Alabama.

"We are excited to see the EPICENTRAL® Print System running at Wind Creek
Casino & Hotel and to see them introduce the system to its casino patrons,"
said Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TransAct
Technologies. "Wind Creek Casino's customers are now able to experience
specifically targeted promotions and bonusing programs right at their game,
which should lead to additional play, loyalty and increased revenue for Wind
Creek. One particular promotion they will run for their customers is an
automatic drawing for additional prizes for both carded and uncarded players
with personalized messages for the carded player – utilizing the true benefit
of EPICENTRAL®."

"We are pleased that the EPICENTRAL® Print System has tested very well with
our players and we are looking forward to optimizing the overall casino
experience and deliver greater value for our customers," stated John Enriquez,
Wind Creek Casino & Hotel's Vice President of Information Technology. "To
further enhance the experience of our patrons, we have trained all Wind Creek
employees to be knowledgeable of every feature of the EPICENTRAL® Print System
to create excitement for the programs and to ensure our patrons do not miss
out on any opportunities."

With the launch of the EPICENTRAL® Print System, Wind Creek is the first
casino in the Southeast with the ability to provide players with game-play
prizes to keep their guest experience fresh and unique. In addition, the
EPICENTRAL® Print System was seamlessly combined with Wind Creek's slot
tracking system using a certified connection to obtain real-time player
activity as well as the ability to personalize promotions.

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 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.
