and interactive product displays. Astro has invested heavily in additional stand space this year in order to demonstrate its latest technologies. This increased presence at the Macau Expo also re-affirms the company’s overall commitment to Asia and its important position in the global gaming market. In addition to unveiling 11 new games, the

rest of Astro’s entire product portfolio will be on display at the two day event which heralds itself as the “biggest and most important gaming event in Asia”. “It’s a great opportunity for people

FutureLogic highlights TITO couponing and printing solutions

See the excellent TableXchange on Booth 927

his year at G2E Asia, FutureLogic will be showcasing the PromoNet couponing solution. This template- based system helps casinos design and manage a wide range of promotional

campaigns from the convenience of a workstation PC, turning ordinary slot tickets into colorful, eye-catching coupons. By directly linking promotional campaigns to specific player actions, activities or behavior, the printer becomes a multifunctional marketing tool. This technology allows casinos to automatically trigger a marketing campaign based on game play metrics, player tracking information, POS systems and redemption terminals. Another game-changing peripheral to be

exhibited at the show is the TableXchange printer/scanner, which effectively brings TITO gaming to table games. The TableXchange printer/scanner was developed based on

34 JUNE 2010

FutureLogic’s player research on crossover players and how they moved from slot machines to table games, and vice versa. In order to do this today, the player must go to the cashier cage and redeem their TITO ticket or chips for cash and then go to the table game or slot machine of choice. This may require some waiting in line before resuming play and the temptation to leave with the cash. With the TableXchange printer/scanner, the

player simply gives a TITO voucher to the dealer to buy in. TableXchange then scans and displays the voucher value on the device’s LCD and touch-screens, allowing the player, dealer, and security operations to confirm the voucher amount. The player then receives chips and a TITO voucher for any cash balance. To cash out, the dealer simply collects and enters the value of the player’s chips on the alpha-numeric keypad. The TableXchange printer/scanner then

prints a cashout voucher for the player. TableXchange revolutionizes casino table

games by creating a bridge between slots and tables, helping casinos identify crossover players, and by virtually eliminating the need to replenish chips at table games. It also has the ability to scan Player’s Club cards so members can be rated and receive loyalty points at table games in the same way as at slot machines. The TableXchange printer/scanner can also be

integrated with the PromoNet promotional couponing solution. Many casinos are now delivering promotional content to the player via TITO printers at slot machines, and this new device will allow them to do the same at table games. With non-gaming revenue becoming more important to casino resorts and complexes, linking reward programs across multiple leisure experiences, as well as casino floors, has become an important initiative for marketers.
