Crane Renews Partnerships with Merkur, Olympic

Crane Payment Innovations (CPI) announced two new agreements renewing preferred-supplier agreements, with Merkur Gaming and Olympic Entertainment Group, making CPI’s SC Advance the default note acceptor at properties of both operators.

Merkur Gaming, a division of Germany’s Gauselmann GmbH, signed a three-year agreement choosing SC Advance as its global default note acceptor. “As an innovator and manufacturer of the highest-quality gaming entertainment products, we know how important it is to choose suppliers of the same distinction,” said Athanasios “Sakis” Isaakidis, senior director of international sales at Merkur.

CPI also announced that Baltic-state gaming operator Olympic Entertainment Group has extended its preferred supplier agreement with the company, under which SC Advance is designated the operator’s default note acceptor on both new and existing games for another three years.

Olympic first began specifying SC note acceptors in 2008 after they out-performed competitive products in a value-added trial.
