MEI Banknote Reader dominates the casino floor
Reading, UK, October 2010
Gran Casino Costa Brava in Spain opened in July with MEI CASHFLOW SC note validators on its slot floor. The casino is located on the coast of Lloret de Mar, a popular tourist destination northeast of Barcelona and has seen over 1,000 visitors per day since its opening.
Francisco Fiol, slot director at Gran Casino Costa Brava, was involved in the selection of MEI: “The note validator is of vital importance to slot play and our property’s success requires the best note validator in the marketplace. Our strategy is to welcome the players with the best technology in the best atmosphere possible; choosing the MEI CASHFLOW SC fits in with this strategy. Its acceptance rates are excellent and we have not needed to service them. We have specified MEI on all of our Unidesa, Novomatic, Williams, Atronic and GoldClub machines.”
MEI introduced the MEI CASHFLOW SC note validator to the casino executive board during the planning stage. “MEI introduced the best note validator in the market to Gran Casino Costa Brava,” said Mark Greenawalt, VP of Gaming EMEA. “The excellent feedback from casinos specifying MEI around the world motivated the property to specify CASHFLOW SC on its slot machines. We appreciate Gran Casino Costa Brava’s support and thank them for specifying MEI.”
