Review ICE TOTALLY GAMING 2014 JCM Global’s Michaela Drews and Tom Nieman pictured at ICE 2014


INNOVATION IS PART OF THE DNA


iVIZION success across the US and Europe is being driven by the industry’s deep understanding of the need for future-proof validation technology


The emphasis for JCM Global at the IMA show in Germany at the start of the year lay squarely on the shoulders of its EBA (European Bill Acceptor) product, having presented its latest iterations, the EBA 40 and EBA 34 at the German domestic exhibition. “We have been very successful in the European AWP market with the EBA product range, with the focus for 2014 centring upon the EBA 40, which gives even greater performance as part of JCM's com- mitment to better, smarter, faster solutions,” explained JCM Global's Michaela Drews.


At the ICE show, however, JCM Global's focus had shifted to the iVIZION for the casino sector, which is the company’s technology-loaded bill validator, and a product that has received, much to its credit, the backing of the casino industry.


“The gaming industry has really embraced the


iVISION,” stated Tom Nieman, JCM’s Vice President of Global Marketing. “It's really underlined to us that this industry doesn't ‘buy cheap,’ but recognises the advantages that out- weigh and offset the extra cost in implementing iVIZION’s technology. Although the iVIZION was conceived as a casino-centric product, it’s also proven to be of great benefit to route opera- tors such as Novomatic and Merkur, looking to


4 8 exploit the full potential of this technology.”


The iVIZION, utilising DNA (Dynamic Network Applications system) technology, has been wel- comed not only by operators looking to exploit its secondary back-end systems, financial updates and data gathering functionality, but regulators have also latched onto the ability of the iVIZION to deliver detailed reports to specif- ically address regulatory issues and ease the regulatory burden on the operator. “As a compa- ny, JCM Global is always looking at the next innovative step,” stated Mr. Nieman. "We are the currency technology company, which embodies everything related to the transaction. If you look at the last two years in the US, the iVIZION has secured 80 per cent of the marketshare of new casino openings. In states such as Ohio, we have secured 100 per cent of the market, which in this industry is frankly remarkable.”


Reinforcing the extraordinary acceptance of the iVISION, JCM Global has recently announced its 100 per cent win for the printer and bill validator business at King’s Casino Rozvadov, in the Czech Republic. The independent casino, known for its high levels of customer service, will replace all existing bill validators and printers in the casi- no’s 150 EGMs with JCM’s award-wining iVIZION bill validator and PayCheck 4 Thermal Printer.


Speaking for King’s Casino Rozvadov, Johannes Weissengruber said: “King’s Casino Rozvadov uses the latest and best technology throughout


our casino to make our guest experience the best it can be. Now with these products from JCM, we have the best bill validation and print- ing technologies, too.”


JCM Global EMEA General Manager Payam Zadeh said: “We are very excited to announce this deal and to bring our advanced technology to King’s Casino Rozvadov. Throughout Europe and around the world, operators of all types and of all sizes have found JCM’s transaction tech- nologies to be better, smarter, faster and simply superior to all other products on the market today.”


In addition to the win in the Czech Republic, JCM Global also announced its preferred suppli- er status with the Princess Casinos Group. Specifically, Princess Group will use JCM’s iVIZION bill validator and PayCheck 4 thermal printer in new devices moving forward. Additionally, Princess Group may be a preferred trial site for JCM’s DNA Dynamic Network Applications system.


Princess Group, one of the largest operators in Eastern Europe with more than 10,000 slots in operation, has been using JCM products for more than 20 years.


Director of Slots Operations Alaattin Yagci said: “We have been very impressed with JCM prod- ucts over the past 20 years. JCM consistently produces high-quality products accompanied by the highest levels of service and support. Now with their impressive new generation of prod- ucts, it makes sense for Princess Group to name JCM our preferred supplier.”
