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 for distribution to customers on a real-time basis at a
slot machine. The system works with existing slot systems and games as it
operates with a separate and distinct connection to TransAct’s Epic 950
printer. As a result, casinos can deploy 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.
