Hamden specialty-printer maker TransAct Technologies Inc. says it sold to a U.S. casino a batch of its printers to be mounted to slot machines or other gaming devices to spit out promotional coupons to high rollers.
TransAct said it will connect its EpiCentral print system to 1,700 slot machines and upgrade 500 of the casino printers to ensure full usage of the system. EpiCentral connects to a device in a slot machine to let the casino send promotions and coupons directly to the players in real time.
TransAct said it is honoring the casino's request that it not be publicly identified for competitive reasons until its system goes live before the end of this year.
In Connecticut, TransAct initially tested EpiCentral at Foxwoods Resort Casino. The company has since launched the system live at casinos in Washington state and New Jersey.
