Transact Technologies Introduces Epicentral Mobile Host(TM) Addition For Casinos

HAMDEN, Conn., Nov. 4, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TransAct Technologies Incorporated (Nasdaq:TACT), a global leader in market-specific printers for transaction-based industries, today announced the addition of the EPICENTRAL Mobile Host™ to the recently announced EPICENTRAL™ Print System.

The EPICENTRAL Mobile Host™ will allow casino hosts to walk through the casino with an iPad or Smartphone and give coupons directly to players on the casino floor by connecting the smart device using wireless technology either to the EPICENTRAL™ Server Manager or directly to TransAct's ServerPort™ device located in the slot machine. This provides a new tool for the casino host who will enjoy the convenience of being able to service the customer by interacting with them on the casino floor. In addition, with the EPICENTRAL Mobile Host™, the casino host can enroll a player in an upcoming slot tournament, or devise an abundant number of ways in order to promote to the player.

"The EPICENTRAL™ Print System will be a major boost for the casinos and their customers, but we also wanted to develop a product that would be beneficial for the casino hosts," said Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TransAct Technologies. "With the EPICENTRAL Mobile Host™, the casino host can now be constantly on the casino floor interacting with the patrons in order to create a more positive customer experience, which will lead to the patrons making additional trips to the casino or making incremental purchases of products or services throughout the property."

The EPICENTRAL™ Print System will make its debut at the G2E Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada from November 16-18 at TransAct's exhibitor booth. For supplementary material that discusses the EPICENTRAL™ Print System in further detail, please visit TransAct's website at http://www.transact-tech.com .
