Casino de la Vallée has signed a long-term Preferred Partnership Agreement with Crane Payment Innovations (CPI), a Crane Co. Company. Under the agreement, the Italian operator will continue to specify the SC Advance note acceptor on all new and replacement slot machines.

Casino de la Vallée, also known as Casino Saint Vincent, first began using SC note acceptors from CPI in June 2008. Ezio Diemoz, slot manager, remembers noting an immediate and positive difference from day one:

“Our previous note acceptors were very sensitive to dirt,” he said. “They simply couldn’t perform in our smoking room without jamming and rejecting notes, and the player experience was really suffering. When we switched to CPI, though, we finally got the great acceptance we were looking for. The SC note acceptors run like clockwork even when our smoking room is at maximum occupancy. Now we’re getting the highest level of performance across our entire floor, and our players are happier than ever.”

Many customers who have switched to CPI have reported similar performance issues with their previous note acceptors—especially in challenging operating environments like smoking rooms. SC Advance was specifically created to resolve these challenges.

Imbued with highly engineered mechanics and outstanding sensing technology, SC Advance takes performance to the next level, delivering the industry’s highest acceptance rate for street-grade notes—including those that are dirty, damp, crinkled or torn.
