Review ICE TOTALLY GAMING


TITA-LATING ICE FOR EUROCOIN


Celebrating its 40th year at ICE, Eurocoin also proved its experience in sourcing global products with two in particularly catching the eye in TITA and VL-Focus.


TITA is a brand new innovation, allowing slot machine TITO tickets to be redeemed right at the gaming table, allowing players to swap their cash-out ticket for casino chips.


Eurocoin’s Sales and Marketing Director Colin Veitch said: “We scour the world looking for innovative solutions for the gaming market and feel that with TITA and VL-Focus, we have really found two must-have casino tools. TITA is going to be huge. So far, TITO has allowed slot players to either play on a different slot or take their ticket to a cashier, but why not offer another option and give slot players the opportunity to take the TITO ticket over to the tables and cash it in for chips?”


Germany-based CountR has made this possible by shrinking its automated redemption kiosk to make it fit onto the limited space of the table game. With a TITA terminal installed at the gaming table, casinos can validate tickets and show their value, partly or completely pay off tickets and in casino chips and create tickets in exchange for chips.


An Android micro-device scans the ticket, identifies it quickly as valid from the casino’s TITO system database, and confirms the value of the ticket to the dealer in seconds. The player can quickly and seamlessly swap his slot machine winnings into gaming table chips, and continue to play without interruption or queuing at the cash desk.


“Players may want to swap between slots and tables, they may want a break to smoke, to drink or to eat. There really is no reason for any restriction,” Mr Veitch continued. “TITA is a natural evolution creating a better flow between games, increasing traffic between them, simplifying the handling of the chips at the table, reducing queues at redemption kiosks and reducing the need to replenish chips at the table.”


Another product added to this year’s Eurocoin portfolio is the VisuaLimits revolutionary table game sign, a breakthrough table signage system that has proved a huge hit in the United States with Las Vegas casinos such as Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand Las Vegas, Luxor, Mirage, Paris and Bally already benefitting from it.

Ryan McCellan, VisuaLimits Managing Director explained: “The system allows casinos to inform customers of any pertinent information about their casino, while also collecting data that can be used to make table games more efficient. Operators can raise and lower limits directly at the table, or from a remote location, track the operational results of table games, audit dealer performances in real-time and compile historical statistics for analysis.”


VisuaLimits offers add-ons such as Sports Ticker, displaying a scrolling ticker to keep customers informed of the status of the sports events at the table. Games can be set as non-smoking directly on the screens with the ability to remotely oversee what games are currently smoking and non-smoking.


Mr. McCellan added: “When dealers are shuffling and dealing cards, VisuaLimits full motion video can advertise the casino’s products, events and promotions. But once the game goes live, it doesn’t distract players, automatically switching back to the background video of game rules and the game type. Whenever your games are open, the minimum and maximum wagers are always displayed to attract game play.”


It also informs pit personnel of the game’s betting limits through a vibrant colour-coordinating rear display that notes the minimum and maximum betting amounts in conjunction with what is displayed on the front.


It uses periodic tracking of each individual dealer to generate a complete dealer performance report. This report can show thresholds indicating acceptable hands per hour. Information such as previous period’s results, rankings and overall performance numbers to- date can be displayed.
