udging by the results from over three months of testing in the Italian Casino’ di Sanremo, Ardac Elite's future seems to be assured: 31 different machines, Five denominations from €5 to €500, Accepting over 100,000 notes, worth nearly €4,000,000, Average acceptance rate of 97%.
The Casino’ di Sanremo is one of the major casinos in Europe and Slots Manager, Marco Calvi, was delighted with the results so far: “The trial is far exceeding my expectations,” he said. “I am impressed with the overall performance of Ardac Elite, not just its exceptional acceptance rate. The installation by Money Controls engineers took less than half a day and throughout the trial there has not been a single failure of any of the machines.”
In fact, Calvi is about to embark on a retrofit programme, with Ardac Elite replacing other manufacturers' bill acceptors in many of the casino's 450 slots.
Eurocoin, Money Controls' European Casino Partner, was instrumental in setting up the trial and will be overseeing the retrofit programme.
Eurocoin Gaming Sales Manager, Nathalie Redon, added: “We are very grateful to Marco Calvi and his technical team for the level of support they have given us at San Remo. The Ardac Elite has proved itself across the casino floor here, exceeding our expectations, and we are very confident it will be just as successful with our other major European clients, too.”
Ardac Elite, together with many of Money Controls' extensive range of products, will be on display on C7, Booth No. 003 in Rimini from 22 to 25 March.
