Casinos Austria Selects MEI

Casinos Austria has chosen to go with the MEI Cashflow SC for new slot machines purchases.

During a trial period, Casinos Austria compared the Cashflow SC to the note validators currently fitted in their slots. The experience allowed Casinos Austria management to assess the MEI product.

Ewald Kirschenmann, head of procurement of gaming equipment at Casinos Austria, said, “Our daily experience proves that the MEI bill validator is by far the top performer in its class in the marketplace in terms of acceptance rates, validation, ease of maintenance and total costs. We have reviewed all of the products available to us at the moment, and MEI is definitely our first choice. Therefore, we will be clearly specifying MEI on all our future machine purchases. Our slot machine suppliers have been informed of this.”

Casinos Austria so far has equipped over 200 of their slots with the MEI product.
