HAMDEN, Conn., April 3, 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 1,800 slot games and a Multimedia Games, Inc.
(Nasdaq:MGAM) Casino Management System at the Kalispel Tribe of Indians'
Northern Quest Resort & Casino in Spokane, Washington.

"We are thrilled to see casinos choosing our EPICENTRAL® Print System around
the country and extremely excited it will be running at Northern Quest Resort
& Casino, which is the only AAA Four Diamond resort in Eastern Washington,"
said Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TransAct
Technologies. "Northern Quest Resort & Casino customers are now able to
participate in targeted promotions and bonusing programs right at their game,
which should result in additional play and increased customer loyalty. One of
the initial promotions Northern Quest will run for their gaming patrons is Q
Cash, where every few minutes, a slot player using their loyalty card wins a
bonus ticket redeemable for cash."

"We are pleased that the EPICENTRAL® Print System connected seamlessly to our
slot machines and Multimedia's Casino Management System," said Eric Pearson,
Vice President of Gaming at Northern Quest Resort & Casino. "The system's
unique features provide us with an opportunity to communicate directly with
our players at the slot machine while they play. We look forward to creating
an exciting atmosphere and value-added experience at Northern Quest with
EPICENTRAL® and our upcoming Q Cash promotion for our Camas Club tiered
players."

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.
