Reels Casino Case Study

In these challenging times, AGC operators are looking closely at their business’s and looking for opportunities to streamline, drive better efficiency and improve security. Playsafe Systems, with their Quantum suite of systems are leading the way in the gaming industry. Newly released to market, Quantum TITO is helping operators remove the strain of managing large volumes of cash in their B3 & Digital CAT C machines, as TITO tickets can be easily reinserted into other connected TITO machines or redeemed via the Thomas PayStation’s. As well as helping business’s streamline their operations Quantum TITO is also proven to increase machine uptime and profits.

Alan Kallas and Gerry Stewart at Reels casino slots have experienced the power of Quantum TITO and the Thomas PayStation in their brand new AGC venue at the Broadway Wimbledon. The new venue offers the latest in high street slots gaming with SG, Blueprint, Playmore and Inspired in a great friendly environment.

“For us TITO was a no brainer” Says Gerry Stewart “cash out is not the way forward especially for a new venue like ours here in Wimbledon. Not only does TITO make the customer journey more efficient it cuts down massively on collection times for staff so all round it’s more profitable for us”

Reels Casino Slots recently installed the Quantum TITO system Allan say’s “We went with Playsafe’s Quantum TITO system because we know Playsafe have a great support team who helped us from planning the install to opening the venue and continue that support 7 days a week should we need them. The Quantum system is constantly being upgraded so that we know that we will always be getting the best value for money.”

Alan and Gerry chose the Thomas 8021C PayStation as their choice of ticket redemption machine for their new business

Alan says “Thomas offer a wide range of PayStation’s but we went with the 8021C as it provides the ability for customers to purchase a TITO ticket using both cash and contactless/chip and pin technology, this combined with the bulk coin changer, has proved a wise choice for us so much so, we are planning to use on our planned future projects”

Alan and Gerry are again working with Playsafe to plan and install their next AGC venture. Reels Casino Slots in Crystal Palace is due to open later in 2020, replicating the proven Quantum TITO and Thomas PayStation offer for the new AGC.

The Arrival of Iain Lunt as UK Sales & Commercial Manager

Playsafe Systems / Thomas, have underlined their continued investment in key personnel with the arrival of Iain Lunt as UK Sales & Commercial Manager.

Iain has been in the industry for a number of years, most recently with Regal Gaming, where he was brought in to manage the Roadchef AGC roll out. Prior to this role, Iain spent 15 years with SG Gaming, managing key accounts including Mecca Bingo and the introduction of new machines into the UK Casino Sector. This was a first in the UK for SG Gaming.

Looking forward to his new challenge,  Iain explained: “It was obvious from my time at SG & Regal that customers are now investing in systems to make their businesses more efficient, secure and profitable, whilst also ensuring their customers benefit from the latest technologies such as TITO, Chip & Pin / Contactless and Loyalty. Quantum is the industry standard for machine data.”

Iain explained further his view that Playsafe / Thomas offers considerably more to the customer, “as well as the reputable Thomas brand of fully Quantum integrated PayStations, the Quantum brand also includes TITO, Promo, Redemption, Performance and Cloud Hosting services. It was obvious to me that Playsafe are the go-to people in the industry when it comes to systems.”

Iain was also struck by how easy Playsafe / Thomas make it for any customer to start their systems journey. “Their flexible approach and modular systems allow businesses to either roll out fully integrated Quantum, TITO, Loyalty and PayStation systems, or start light with Quantum & Promo Lite, allowing businesses to grow their systems to suit their current needs. With the imminent release of Quantum V6, which is a free of charge upgrade to all current customers, this is an exciting time to be joining this growing company.”

Playsafe / Thomas MD, Ian Fuller, commented, “we are really pleased to secure Iain as part of our Team in Bath. He has a great deal of industry experience and will help us continue to grow the number of connected customers we have. We have made a significant investment in our team and systems here at Playsafe / Thomas.

Chip and Pin / Contactless Payments

thomas paystation contactless payments

Following recent articles in the press, questions surrounding the future of cash have never been so pertinent.  The use of debit cards overtook cash in 2018, indicating that the decline of cash began long before lockdown. However, with the new health and safety measures now in place, the decline has been accelerated. Attempts to minimize the spread of Covid-19 means the limit on contactless payments has been pushed to £45. As the UK begins to unlock, consumers are encouraged to use Chip and Pin and contactless wherever possible to help prevent a second peak.

In comparison to the ease of processing electronic payments, the process of handling, storing, and depositing physical cash can have many hidden costs for businesses as well as a drain on time and resources. By switching to contactless these costs can be minimized or possibly eliminated. A cashless society has also been linked to a lower crime rate. This refers to physical theft of tangible money as well as money laundering and tax evasion. Going cashless also facilitates the easier exchange of currencies, easing the struggle of exchange rates.

Although this cashless society may seem ideal, there are disadvantages. Having money purely online often leads to increased data security breaches as more personal data is online. There is also a lack of standardization with online banking that often results in delays in payments. Those without a bank account will find it harder to make payments. This especially affects the older generation who are not so digitally adept. Some people may also find it harder to keep track of spending without the use of tangible cash.

Here at Playsafe we have many years experience in the handling of both cash and electronic payments. We have also developed a number of solutions to enable our customers to efficiently and cost effectively handle both cash and electronic payments, these solutions include our range of Thomas PayStation’s which will accept and dispense both banknotes and coins, as well as accepting electronic payments via card or mobile phones. Also, our Payter contactless solution is ideal for those customers requiring a contactless retrofit solution for existing equipment. Both solutions have help streamline customers operations and increase income.

Free Cash Machines Are Vanishing at An Alarming Rate

According to Which and reported by the BBC news today. Nearly 1,700 machines started charging for withdrawals in the first three months of the year, with the majority starting to charge in March, according to the consumer lobby group. Click here to read more.

Nearly 1,700 machines started charging for withdrawals in the first three months of the year, with the majority starting to charge in March, according to the consumer lobby group.

Cardtronics, which runs most of those, and fellow provider NoteMachine are both likely to charge at more machines.

That could mean the country losing 13% of its free ATMs in only a few months.

What does this mean for you and your customers? Increasingly, cash is going to become harder to access due to fewer cash machines and more expensive to obtain.

Customers will expect greater choice of payment options such as contactless, chip and pin, PayStation’s and TITO within gaming centres. Cash use has halved in the past 10 years and in 2017, debit cards overtook notes and coins as the UK’s most popular payment method.

Sweden has seen the future and it’s cashless

Ten years from now, a pasty-faced young man in a decrepit St Petersburg office block hits the enter key on his laptop and disables the entire Swedish economy. Card machines spew out streams of meaningless symbols. Nannies, taxi drivers and civil servants go unpaid. The smartphone apps everyone relies on to take the bus to work, buy their morning cappuccino and pay their rent are reduced to so much useless software.

Worst of all, there is no cash for the nation to fall back on. The banks took back most of the notes a couple of years ago. There is the odd wodge of krona stuffed away in someone’s attic, but they are little more than a historical curiosity now.

This lurid nightmare is pretty…
