FutureLogic, a leader in printers for ticket-in/ticket-out applications on slot machines, has released a product that will allow casinos to bring the convenience of TITO cash-out to table games.
The TableXchange device is designed specifically to enable players to use TITO cash-out vouchers at table games. It connects table games to a casino’s existing TITO network by scanning and printing TITO vouchers. This technology creates a common currency across the casino, creates a bridge between slots and tables, and helps casinos identify valuable crossover players. The TableXchange device further streamlines casino operations by virtually eliminating the need to replenish chips at table games.
To buy in, the player gives a TITO voucher to the dealer. The TableXchange device scans and displays the voucher value on the device’s LCD and touch-screens, allowing the player, dealer and security operations to confirm the voucher amount. The player then receives chips and a TITO voucher for any cash balance. To cash out, the dealer simply collects and enters the value of the player’s chips on the numeric keypad. The TableXchange device then prints a cash-out voucher for the player.
The TableXchange device is fitted with a mag-stripe reader to record and update players club cards, enabling players to receive loyalty points for activity at table games. Additionally, the device provides a variety of administrative interface features to assist the dealer. These functions include a numeric keypad and touch-screen with currency type, table-limit selection, manual printer controls and the ability to print promotional coupons on demand.
