Gaming expert TransAct Technologies has created the Epicentral® Clean2Play™, a product that prioritises users’ health.
As casinos around the country have reopened, they all share the same two common goals – to ensure everyone is healthy and keep the economy moving forward. This is why we created Epicentral® Clean2Play™, a revolutionary casino product that provides real-time printed proof that a slot machine has been cleaned, sanitized and is ready for play.
“Our main focus is to help operations keep their employees and players as safe as possible,” said Tracey Chernay, Senior Vice President in Global Casino and Gaming at TransAct Technologies. “We believe Clean2Play is an ideal solution for this because it provides tangible confirmation that casinos are adhering to the new health protocols. In return, when guests see visual proof that slot machines are sanitized, they feel safer and are more likely to come back to the resort.”
Clean2Play is available as an app that is part of TransAct’s well-known Epicentral promotional system, and it is built on Acres 4.0’s Clean Machine product, which detects when each gaming machine’s play session ends and instantly dispatches a staff member to sanitize the game. Once sanitation is complete, Clean2Play causes the gaming machine to print a certification ticket, which the casino cleaning staff member then places on the machine or directly over the machine’s bill acceptor. Before the next play can begin, the cleaning voucher will be removed from the slot machine allowing casino guests to see that the slot machine is certified as clean.
Casinos can customize the voucher with a sanitation message, the cleaning staff member’s name, machine ID, and a timestamp of when the cleaning occurred. As part of the Epicentral Clean2Play system, casinos can also incentivize their employees by printing a second voucher once the slot machine is cleaned to give the cleaning employee the chance to win prizes and validate their performance.
As important as it is for players to feel safe, it’s equally important to keep company morale high during these unique times. Therefore, Clean2Play can also be used to incentivize casino employees. As part of the Epicentral Clean2Play system, casinos can choose to print a second voucher once the slot machine is cleaned to give the cleaning employee the chance to win prizes and validate their performance. Staff can also run contests to award team members that clean the most machines. At any time, casinos can upgrade Epicentral Clean2Play to a fully functioning Epicentral promotional system.
“We are confident Clean2Play will serve as a powerful tool well beyond the pandemic, and we look forward to incorporating this product in casinos worldwide,” said Chernay.
