‘Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Technology Product’ and ‘Attendees’ Choice’
APEX gaming has been presented with 2 major gaming awards in the USA for its iDROPe – the revolutionary table gaming cash management system. The awards were bestowed during the Casino Marketing & Technology Conference that took place between 12th and 14th July at Paris, Las Vegas. The two accolades for the iDROPe were in the categories ‘Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Technology Products’ and ‘Attendees’ Choice’.
Industry vendors had submitted product nominations for their newest, most creative and technologically advanced products and services to the industry magazine Casino Journal. A panel of judges representing a cross-section of the industry evaluated the entries and chose the 20 winners that were then announced during the aforementioned gaming conference.
The iDROPe is the win-win-win cash management solution for live gaming tables. Simple to side-mount on any live gaming table, the iDROPe offers unique benefits for operators, croupiers and players alike. That explains why it is the win-win-win solution for all involved persons. Players can now purchase jetons directly at the live gaming table. Fitted with an easy-to-use touchscreen display, croupiers can accept tickets, cash or the player card directly at the live table and exchange these for chips / jetons. Players decide themselves whether to exchange the complete amount on the ticket for chips. When a part amount is to be exchanged, the remainder is returned in ticket format. Naturally players can cash-in their chips for a ticket. This is all done by the iDROPe. Players can then easily move between slots and live gaming – continuing to use their ticket or player card. Croupiers have a secure solution to accept payment for the jetons – also enabling players to cash out simple as well directly at the table. The iDROPe contains all the intelligence inside to securely validate, accept and store the bills / tickets – up to 2,000 can be stored. Operators know that the iDROPe can communicate directly via SAS with their casino management system. Furthermore, they have instant information on how much money is in each iDROPe – all cash is accounted for.
The fact that the iDROPe from APEX gaming was awarded as well as the ‘Attendees’ Choice’ shows the difference this innovation truly makes on the gaming floor.
Mr. Kubilay Özer, Global Sales Director at APEX gaming, personally attended the awards ceremony and looks back at a very special evening, stating, “It is rare that a product can make such a great difference on so many levels. We at APEX gaming have always pledged to take gaming to the next level. The iDROPe does this in a unique way. The ‘Attendees’ Choice’ accolade underlines the reaction by industry veterans who have amassed a wealth of experience. Indeed, the iDROPe made a lasting impression with the jurors and attendees alike.
Mr. Johannes Weissengruber, Chairman of APEX gaming, is naturally proud to have received such recognition at this awards ceremony and adds, “These awards mean a great deal to us at APEX gaming. They confirm just how innovation, pioneering and revolutionary the iDROPe is. The awareness amongst US operators has risen dramatically – not only on the iDROPe but also on its great range of benefits. We have bolstered our production site to ensure that operators in the USA and beyond can get to know the iDROPe as soon as possible. The first casinos in the USA that have been trialing the iDROPe have already given us exceptional feedback. The iDROPe is the perfect solution for casinos that offer live gaming throughout the world”.
APEX gaming also offers the iDROP alongside the iDROPe. The iDROP is integrated into the table whereas the iDROPe can simple be side-mounted to existing tables.
