Epicentral 4.0: Taking Bonusing to a Whole New Level

TransAct’s Epicentral promotion and bonusing print system has long been the industry’s only solution capable of targeting customers with unique, custom-designed coupons while they play, all in real-time. The Company’s latest Epicentral technology, Epicentral 4.0, has an all-new web-based user interface designed to increase slot floor game play with a comprehensive dashboard on the user homepage that allows operators to actively plan, manage, and analyze promotions as well as identify top players and view specific data in order to build customer loyalty. Epicentral 4.0 is strategically designed to increase player spend, generate customer loyalty, and drive revenue offering operators a new recurring revenue opportunity.

Epic Edge: The Leader in Ticket-In/Ticket-Out

The next-generation Epic Edge is the global casino operator’s top choice in TITO printers, delivering a 50 percent improvement over current industry offerings. The Epic Edge features a 300-dpi print resolution for sharper barcodes to ultimately reduce frequency of attendant calls to drive overall floor efficiency. Tickets printed through Epic Edge feature dynamic images making it ideal for implementation alongside bonusing applications such as Epicentral. The Epic Edge also allows for firmware updates via a full speed USB 2.0 connection or directly via a micro SD card, empowering operators to update firmware faster than ever before. Additional features include a single rugged outer chassis with color coded rails, numerous flexible port options (Serial, USB and Netplex), hot swap capability to eliminate game downtime, a faster ServerPort™ connection and an adjustable ticket bucket that accommodates standard and smaller, paper-saving tickets.

Epic: The Trusted Name in Printing

Casino and gaming operators have trusted TransAct for the industry’s most reliable TITO and roll-fed printers for over 15 years.

Epic printers on display at ICE London will include:

  • Epic 950– The industry-standard for TITO printing, TransAct’s Epic 950 delivers proven performance in over 750,000 slot machines worldwide. Easily integrated into all game types, the Epic 950 features TicketBurst™ technology to eliminate player/ticket interference and is fully compatible with Epicentral to provide direct, personalized promotions and bonus offers in real-time.
  • Epic Edge TT™ – This unique, purpose-built printer takes the advanced Epic Edge outside the slot machine and on to table games, players’ club desks and cash desks. It packages a printer, internally mounted power supply and optional ServerPort in a tidy, compact design that is easy to deploy. In addition, its dual port capability allows operators to expand the bonusing environment created by their Epicentral deployments to non-gaming device applications.
  • Epic 880®– This compact printer for all types of gaming machines (including video lottery terminals) features a modular design configurable to nearly any space, a variable length ticket presenter, and ticket retract capability.
