FireKeepers Chooses FutureLogic

Thermal printer supplier FutureLogic, Inc. announced that its “GEN2” printers have been selected by Michigan’s new FireKeepers Casino. The new 0 million gaming property, which opened in August, has installed the GEN2 printers on all of the casino’s 2,680 TITO games. After previously deploying FutureLogic’s GEN2 printers at other properties, FireKeepers credited the printers’ features, flexibility and reliability provided as the basis of this exclusive agreement.

FutureLogic’s GEN2 printer, together with the GEN2 Universal printer, has won 10 industry awards during the past six years. The printer features “ITH” (Intelligent Ticket Handling) technology to eliminate torn, smeared or crumpled tickets, and offers 50 percent more standard paper capacity than other gaming printers, according to the company.

The printer is server-based ready and supports both SPC (IGT) and GDS protocols. It can also be configured to communicate with multiple hosts simultaneously, such as RS232 or Netplex and USB.

“The Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi Indians, our owners, and Full House Resorts, the managing partner of FireKeepers, placed strong emphasis on making sure that all the technology on our slot machines would be functional, durable and, most importantly, would provide unquestionable reliability for our guests,” said R. Bruce McKee, general manager of FireKeepers. “After testing and evaluating samples from all the major suppliers, we chose FutureLogic to be our sole supplier of slot printers.”

FireKeepers Director of Slots Steven Senk added, “FutureLogic met their delivery commitment and our budget requirements. The performance of their printers has met our expectations.”

“We are pleased that FireKeepers, the hottest new casino in Michigan, has chosen FutureLogic as its exclusive printer supplier based on their past experience with our equipment,” said Nick Micalizzi, VP of sales and marketing for FutureLogic. “We regard this agreement as validation that we are providing our customers with the leading-edge technology and unmatched customer support they have come to expect from FutureLogic.”
