Ahead of the game

How wireless solutions are helping gaming machine manufacturers to come up trumps! By Mike Richardson.

Gaming machine designers are constantly looking to strike it lucky by discovering new and easier ways of providing automated counting, tracking and auditing, with the ability to update records automatically on a casino’s computerised database.
With restrictions on cost and the difficulty of running Ethernet cables in certain areas, many customers are looking to hit the jackpot with the latest wireless communication solutions.
The tracking of gaming machines is normally done by means of electromechanical meters, which need to be checked manually, whilst takings are recorded using a paper based process. This has always been prone to error, plus the meters are not always reliable. Operator error further compounds the problem, as workers can write meter readings down incorrectly. There is also the risk of theft by workers who can report fewer takings than there actually are. Therefore, gaming manufacturers are looking for alternatives that can ensure greater accuracy and save time, without increasing costs dramatically whilst maintaining high levels of security.
