West Chester, PA, September 20, 2012 — The Silver Slipper Casino in Bay St. Louis reopened with CASHFLOW SC in all 1,004 of its slots the following year after suffering damages from Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
“It was one of the best operations decisions we ever made,” according to David Pisarich, Slot Director at the Silver Slipper.
Introduced in 2002, CASHFLOW SC redefined the role of note acceptors in operator profitability and customer satisfaction with improvements made to acceptance, jam rate, security and cost of operation. Its unparalleled machine uptime helps ensure the slots are consistently running for gameplay.
“Since going 100% MEI, downtime has become a thing of the past,” Pisarich explains. “We haven’t experienced a single failure in any of our CASHFLOW SC note acceptors – and that includes the units we had in operation before Katrina. The cashboxes are virtually indestructible, and the acceptors run with jam-free precision. I guess you can say MEI equipment can even withstand hurricanes!”
He adds, “We have definitely seen improvements in revenues thanks to the reliability of CASHFLOW SC. But there’s more at work here than just the equipment – it’s also the people at MEI who stand behind their fantastic products. The sales and service teams have been outstanding. They do not hesitate to help us in any and every way possible. It is refreshing to know we can depend on MEI to help us succeed even seven years later.”
Eric Fisher, MEI Senior VP – Americas, says, “We are thrilled with the Silver Slipper’s success with CASHFLOW SC. Their experience is a testament to the value and longevity of MEI note acceptors, and we look forward to maintaining our partnership well into the future.”
