Casino Cosmopol Praises JCM's iVIZION

Cash-handling equipment supplier JCM Global has announced that the company has received praise from Sweden’s Casino Cosmopol for the iVIZION bill validators, which have been operating on 250 games in the operator’s casinos for the past six months.

“Selecting the iVIZION was a no-brainer for us because of its improved security, fastest note-to-note processing speed and 99 percent acceptance rate,” said Roger Jonsson, gaming specialist at Casino Cosmopol. Added Erik Sober, another gaming specialist of the operator, “After six months of having iVIZION on the casino floor, we are very happy to see that iVIZION is performing above our expectations. We will ensure we order every slot machine with iVIZION in the future, and we are excited to learn more about the additional functionalities of iVIZION and other new products of JCM Global, such as DNA (Dynamic Network Applications).”

“We are thrilled that Casino Cosmopol is so enthusiastic about iVIZION,” said JCM EMEA General Manager Payam Zadeh. “We created iVIZION to be the foundation of intelligent validation, and clearly Casino Cosmopol is benefitting from its many capabilities. Now as we move forward with additional apps for iVIZION, including the new Dynamic Network Applications, we expect that iVIZION will be even further entrenched as the new global standard.”
