News Release from:
15 October 2009
FutureLogic, Inc. announced today that its GEN2 printers have been selected by FireKeepers Casino . The new $300 million gaming property, which opened in August in Battle Creek, Michigan, has installed the GEN2 printers on all of the casino's 2,680 TITO games. After previously deploying FutureLogic's GEN2 printers at other properties, FireKeepers credited the printers' features, flexibility and reliability provided as the basis of this exclusive agreement.
FutureLogic's GEN2 printer, together with the GEN2 Universal™ printer, has won ten industry awards during the last six years. The GEN2 printer features ITH® (Intelligent Ticket Handling) technology to eliminate torn, smeared or crumpled tickets and offers 50% more standard paper capacity than other gaming printers. The GEN2 Universal printer, designed to provide the ease of integration required for the next generation of networked games, is server-based ready and supports both SPC (IGT) and GDS protocols. It can also be configured to communicate with multiple hosts simultaneously, such as RS232 or Netplex and USB.
R. Bruce McKee, General Manager of FireKeepers Casino, said that he and his team had to make many difficult decisions to ensure that FireKeepers Casino would be a first-class casino in a competitive market place. The Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi Indians, our owners, and Full House Resorts, the managing partner of FireKeepers, placed strong emphasis on making sure that all the technology on our slot machines would be functional, durable and, most importantly, would provide unquestionable reliability for our guests. After testing and evaluating samples from all the major suppliers, we chose FutureLogic to be our sole supplier of slot printers.
FireKeepers Director of Slots Steven Senk added FutureLogic met their delivery commitment and our budget requirements. The performance of their printers has met our expectations.
Nick Micalizzi, VP of Sales & Marketing for FutureLogic, said: We are pleased that FireKeepers, the hottest new casino in Michigan, has chosen FutureLogic as its exclusive printer supplier based on their past experience with our equipment. We regard this agreement as validation that we are providing our customers with the leading-edge technology and unmatched customer support they have come to expect from FutureLogic.
