ac Seelig, the founder of AC Coin & Slot, did not sound very worried. "Yes, the economy is poor and the casinos are mired in a slump, but he’s been through it before - in the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s. It seems every decade there’s a downturn. “This is the third time I’ve seen something similar,” Seelig said of the current economic crisis. “But the operators usually figure it out.”
Although the casino industry has slowed down nationwide recently, the explosive growth of gaming in years past has allowed AC Coin to put its slot machines in 280 casinos in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean. AC Coin is one of the largest privately owned slot manufacturers and casino supply companies in the world. It also serves as the exclusive distributor of industry giant International Game Technology’s slot machines in Atlantic City and the Caribbean.
