TransAct Technologies' EPICENTRAL(R) Print System Selected as Top Ten Slot Floor Product for 2012 by Casino Enterprise Management

HAMDEN, Conn., March 29, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TransAct Technologies Incorporated (Nasdaq:TACT), a global leader in market-specific printers for transaction-based and other industries, is pleased to announce that its EPICENTRAL® Print System has been selected as one of the Top Ten slot floor products for 2012 in the sixth annual Casino Enterprise Management magazine Slot Floor Technology Awards. An article featuring the EPICENTRAL® Print System will be published in the May 2012 issue of Casino Enterprise Management, the leading gaming industry trade publication and the "Official Publication" of the Association of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers (AGEM).

The EPICENTRAL® Print System was selected for the honor by an expert panel of judges throughout the casino industry who are well versed in the latest slot floor technologies.

"We are gratified by having the EPICENTRAL® Print System honored by Casino Enterprise Management as one of the Top Ten slot floor products for 2012," said Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TransAct Technologies. "The EPICENTRAL® Print System is already making an impact on the casino industry, as it enhances the customer experience while allowing for casinos to drive more play, increase revenue and improve their customer loyalty through delivering effective targeted, real-time, marketing initiatives and bonusing programs right at the slot machine.  We are very proud that EPICENTRAL® is being recognized as one of the best new slot floor products in the industry, and look forward to having the System become a significant driver of TransAct's business in the months and years to come."    

The new EPICENTRAL® Print System — connected directly to TransAct's ServerPort™ device inside the slot machine — is an easy-to-use, cost-efficient software system that enables casinos to internally develop marketing programs and promotional coupons to be distributed to customers on a real-time basis at a slot machine. Additionally, the system works with all existing slot systems and games as it is separate and distinct from the slot system itself.  Casinos will be able to use the EPICENTRAL® Print System to connect to all existing slot machines, regardless of the game's manufacturer, extending marketing programs to communicate with and to reward their players — while they are playing.
