The successful Value Added Trial signals the preference for CASHFLOW SC in Italy


Reading , England– May 2011:   MEI is pleased to announce that Italy’s Casino di Campione now specifies the CASHFLOW SC note validator for its property. The casino performed a value-added trial (VAT) to compare the performance of the CASHFLOW SC note validators with the note validators already in use on the casino floor.

The performance of CASHFLOW SC note validator exceeded the expectations of casino management, resulting in the specification of MEI for all new slot machine purchases and refurbishes.  

CASHFLOW SC offers operators the highest acceptance rates, unrivalled security, best jam performance and lowest cost of ownership in the industry.   Mr. Giacomo Saladino, technical slot manager at Casino di Campione, saw the benefits of CASHFLOW SC first hand.  

“The performance of CASHFLOW SC is excellent.   After experiencing the reliability, ease of use and robust nature of the product, we decided to specify it for our property.   It is simple to maintain and the PPM allows us to update the software for all game manufacturers on the floor very easily,” said Saladino.  

Mr. James Boje, VP EMEA at MEI, comments, “This win for MEI proves CASHFLOW SC is a great product. Gaming operators appreciate the importance we place on our customers and with MEI they are getting an excellent product with service to match. We thank the team at Casino di Campione for participating in a successful VAT.   Its change in strategic direction underlines how important the note validator choice is in Italy with the growing gaming base”.
