IGT selects Microcoin QL as its default small coin offering
17 December 2003 , Press release

Astrosys International Ltd announces the selection by IGT of its Microcoin QL coin acceptor as the new default unit for IGT’s small coin offering.

After an intensive and exhaustive selection process, involving all major coin acceptors currently available to the Gaming market, the Microcoin QL has been chosen by IGT as the replacement for the coin comparator.

“This has been an extremely thorough and important project, as it forms the corner-stone of our future coin strategies”, states Randy Hedrick, Sr. Vice President, Product Development.

“We require the security and scope of fully electronic coin validation technology to complement the advancements in technology within all aspects of our Gaming platforms”, he adds. “The most comprehensive package, comprising not only a coin acceptor but encompassing our demands in warehousing, production and field support, is the Microcoin QL”.

“Although TITO/cashless is an emerging technology, there continues to be demand for coin-in functionality,” said Ed Rogich, Vice President of Marketing, IGT. “The Microcoin QL is a perfect fit for our coin acceptor offering.”

“Microcoin has long been the default acceptor for IGT-Australia and we have been quietly working with IGT-Reno for a number of years to develop a coin acceptor solution which meets the demands of the US domestic Gaming market and beyond” states Robert Bird, Group Marketing Manager, Astrosys International Ltd. “Microcoin invented high speed multi-coin acceptance over 10 years ago and we were the first company to create a secure Gaming solution where one acceptor can hold multiple coin denominations and securely switch from one denomination to another” continues Bird, “Using our Casinomate handheld device, we also have a suite of additional diagnostics features to support the QL in the field ”.
