Company’s Booth (#A719) to Feature Full Suite of Epic Printers and
the Epicentral Bonusing System

HAMDEN, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TransAct Technologies Incorporated (Nasdaq: TACT) (“TransAct” or “the
Company”), a global leader in software-driven technology and printer
solutions for high-growth markets, announced today that the Company will
showcase its industry-leading casino and gaming print and software
solutions portfolio at G2E Asia 2019, (“G2E Asia”), to be held at The
Venetian Macau on May 21-23, 2019 in Macau. The Company’s display at G2E
Asia (Booth #A719) will include its full suite of Epic
ticket-in/ticket-out (“TITO”) and lottery printers – led by the
next-generation Epic Edge – and its Epicentral promotion and bonusing
print system.

“Our team is always delighted to return to Macau and the all-important
G2E Asia where we work closely with operators in the ever-expanding
Asian gaming market to demonstrate how our casino and gaming print and
software solutions can improve their day-to-day business operations,”
said Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TransAct
Technologies. “Headlined by our next-generation Epic Edge TITO printer
and our Epicentral promotion and bonusing software solution, our
presence at G2E Asia 2019 will allow our team to help customers create
elevated gaming floor experiences and enhanced financial performance,
all backed by TransAct’s legendary service. The all-new Epic Edge takes
existing technology and elevates it to a higher standard thanks to its
300 dpi print quality which delivers razor sharp barcodes and graphics
on printed tickets, leading to dramatically improved gaming floor
operations. Epicentral continues to drive time on device and increased
revenue performance as our two distinct offerings provide the needed
flexibility that allow for deployment in casino operations of all sizes.
This is an exciting time for the Asian gaming marketplace and we look
forward to engaging with current and potential customers.”

Epic Edge: The New Leader in Ticket-In/Ticket-Out

The next-generation Epic Edge is the new choice in TITO printers,
offering a 50 percent improvement over current industry options thanks
to its 300 dpi print resolution. This high-resolution capability allows
the printer to replicate a nearly unlimited array of characters and
graphics, making it an ideal fit for Asian casino operators. At the same
time, the Epic Edge can create sharper barcodes for better ticket
acceptance and reduced attendant calls, driving a measurable improvement
in casino performance and allowing slot and table operations to run at
peak efficiency. Epic Edge also creates eye-catching, dynamic graphic
images, making it ideal for implementation alongside applications such
as Epicentral from TransAct. The Epic Edge allows for firmware updates
via a full speed USB 2.0 connection or directly via a micro SD card,
driving increased convenience and making the process of updating
firmware speedier than ever. Other features include a single rugged
outer chassis with color coded rails, numerous port options (Serial, USB
and Netplex), hot swap capability to eliminate game downtime, a faster
ServerPort™ connection and an adjustable ticket bucket that accommodates
standard and smaller, paper-saving tickets.

Epic: The Trusted Name in Printing

TransAct’s Epic TITO and roll-fed printers are the long-time industry
constant, delivering leading dependability and unmatched reliability
across a wide array of applications including slot machines, gaming
machines and tables. TransAct will demonstrate its full lineup of Epic
printers at G2E Asia, including:

  • Epic 950 – The long-time industry standard for TITO printing,
    TransAct’s Epic 950 continues to deliver proven performance in over
    750,000 slot machines worldwide. Easily integrated into all game
    types, the Epic 950 features TicketBurst™ technology to eliminate
    player/ticket interference and is fully compatible with Epicentral to
    provide for the direct, real-time delivery of eye-catching
    personalized promotions and bonus offers.
  • Epic Edge TT™ – These unique, purpose-built printers take the
    power of the advanced Epic Edge outside the slot machine and on to
    table games, players’ club desks and cash desks. They package a
    printer, internally mounted power supply and ServerPort in a tidy,
    compact design that is easy to deploy. In addition, thanks to their
    dual port capability, the Epic Edge TT allow operators to expand the
    bonusing environment created by their Epicentral deployments to
    non-gaming device applications.
  • Epic 880® – This compact printer for all types of gaming
    machines (including video lottery terminals) features a modular design
    that is configurable to nearly any space, a variable length ticket
    presenter and ticket retract capability. It also offers auto paper
    loading and can accommodate 4-inch or 6-inch paper rolls.
  • Epic 430® – An easy-to-configure modular design makes the Epic
    430 ideal for customer self-service kiosks. This printer features
    variable length tickets with graphics and coupons capabilities, quick
    paper roll changes, a fast print speed and an array of standard paper
  • Epic 3000® – The Epic 3000 has been deployed by lotteries
    worldwide across hundreds of thousands of locations, delivering fast,
    proven performance. It offers a number of industry-unique features,
    including an anti-jam front paper exit for reliable operation, the
    ability to print and stack up to 100 tickets without shuffling, a
    large 7.5-inch diameter paper roll, and the only full tool steel
    rotary cutter.

Epicentral Delivers Casino Revenue Growth

The proven performance of Epicentral will also be on display at G2E Asia
2019 as TransAct demonstrates how its industry-unique promotion and
bonusing print system is “Delivering Casino Revenue Growth” each and
every day across installations of all sizes. Epicentral – through two
distinct offerings – creates unmatched in-casino promotion and bonus
offerings in concert with the Epic printers installed in the gaming
devices and at tables throughout the casino. Visitors to TransAct’s
booth at G2E Asia 2019 will learn how Epicentral effectively bridges the
gap between the slot machine and the reward of a printed ticket.
Epicentral has successfully driven increased game play, time on device
and player loyalty for more than 6 years and TransAct will again
highlight how Epicentral is the natural choice for operators looking to
implement printed ticket bonuses on their gaming floors.

Epicentral v3.9 offers a variety of powerful features that build on
Epicentral’s long-term track record of driving increased time on device
and revenue. These include the ability to run multiple promotions at the
same time, create games within games, run different promotions on
different slot game banks, segment players by tier, promote to different
levels of uncarded players and improve operator decision making through
detailed activity reports. Epicentral v3.9 also improves the player
experience by allowing for the redemption, printing and re-printing of
bonuses at multiple locations.

For operators looking to expand bonusing within their existing slot
management systems, Epicentral SE easily turns current promotional
offerings into printed coupons by combining existing system capabilities
with Epicentral’s Print Manager and Design Center modules. Epicentral SE
can easily print and deliver free play vouchers directly to players
which they can then redeem at the slot machine. TransAct will also
demonstrate how customers can choose Epicentral SE as a first step
towards a future upgrade to a fully-featured Epicentral deployment.
