The systems division of slot manufacturer Atronic has secured a contract to provide a comprehensive range of systems solutions to three casinos owned by Theros International Gaming and Vivere Entertainment Group in Greece.

In total, more than 800 gaming machines at the Rio, Xanthi and Corfu casinos in Greece will be equipped with Atronic’s Crystal Web platform, the acclaimed, machine-independent platform boasting the first Ethernet-to-machine network worldwide.

The contract includes equipping 311 machines at Casino Rio (near Patras), 178 machines at Casino Xanthi, and 311 machines at Casino Corfu, which will be operated soon. It includes the StarSlots, StarJackpots and StarMarketing modules, as well as its “chip cash” cashless solution.

Meanwhile, Atronic Systems, the Austria-based system subsidiary of Atronic, has signed an agreement with cash-handling system supplier ecash Technologies, under which Atronic will distribute the ecash Cash Redemption Terminal, or CRT, in European, Latin American and South African gaming markets.

The ecash CRT is compatible with Atronic’s “qpon cash” electronic fund slot payment systems, as well as major ticket-in/ticket out systems. The CRT will be made compatible with Atronic’s “chip cash” smart card solution in the near future, according to the company.

The Atronic ecash terminal is a fully automated ticket redemption solution incorporating bar-coded tickets. A user-friendly note-breaking operation via large color touch-screen enables quick operation, minimizing lines.

The terminal also offers remote monitoring software, which allows casino management to monitor the CRT performance and cash levels live on the casino floor. The system can automatically alert casino service staff in the event that a warning status appears on the RMS, reducing CRT downtime and minimizing labor input.
