ROYAL OAK, Mich., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Casino Journal announced Resort Advantage's Slots Jackpot Accelerator™ as one of the Top 20 Innovative Gaming Technology Products of 2012! The Top 20 Winners were honored at the Gaming Technology Conference on March 13, 2013 at the Green Valley Casino Resort in Las Vegas. Judging in this year's contest were Gregg Solomon, CEO at MotorCity Casino, Donna Grable, VP of Gaming Operations at VCAT LLC and Warren Davison, Slot Director at Coushatta Resort. The panel of expert judges evaluated 75 product entries, and chose the Top 20 companies that are rising to the forefront of the gaming industry that are creating products with the potential to transform the way business is done now and into the future.
Resort Advantage's (RA's) innovative Slots Jackpot Accelerator (SJA) product is an Android / IOS mobile device "app" that allows floor attendants to securely and efficiently bring the entire jackpot payout process to winning patrons on the floor and helps get those patrons gaming again quickly. As properties look to gain competitive advantage through the enhancement of their patrons' gaming experience, Resort Advantage saw the integration of SJA, RA's mobile jackpot payout processing solution, with Sightline's Loyalty Card Plus™ Discover card and FutureLogic's dual port printers as unique opportunities to provide patrons with new jackpot payout options at the gaming machine. These innovative integrations to the SJA mobile "app" provide casinos significant benefits by keeping patrons on property, reducing the cost and risk of cash management, and further reducing jackpot payout processing costs. Resort Advantage's Slots Jackpot Accelerator is the most efficient slots jackpot payout solution in the industry!
"I love the paperless aspect of the product," a judge said. "In the 21 st century, there is no reason we should be using dot matrix printers with triplicate W-2G's. The ability for players to access their W-2G's electronically has been a long time coming. Additionally, the ability to send the funds to a pre-paid credit card gives the player a much better option over checks. They can have instant access to their money if they choose without carrying around large sums of cash."
"When integrated with FutureLogic's printers, RA's Slots Jackpot Accelerator enables casino operators to instantly recognize and reward jackpot winners and other high-value players at the game and provide the necessary documentation to keep players playing, enhancing their experience and encouraging a return visit to the casino," said Nick Micalizzi, VP of Sales and Marketing, North America at FutureLogic.Resort Advantage Managing Director, Brian Ferrilla, commented on the award: "We are honored to be recognized by Casino Journal magazine and by the panel of expert judges mentioned herein as one of the Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Technology Products of 2012.

Resort Advantage's Slots Jackpot Accelerator solution provides an unmatched patron experience enhancement opportunity for casino properties.
