JCM American Receives Exclusive Contract From New Hollywood Slots at Bangor.

New Casino Is Second This Year to Open Exclusively With JCM Products

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- When Maine's first casino opens next week, it will be the second new casino in the U.S. to open this year equipped exclusively with JCM's UBA (Universal Bill Acceptor) and Sentry.


Hollywood Slots at Bangor, a Penn National Gaming property, is slated to celebrate its grand opening November 4, and each of the casino's 475 slots will be fitted solely with JCM's UBA and Sentry. The UBA made its world premiere earlier this year at Wynn Las Vegas, which was also exclusively equipped with the UBA.

JCM Vice President for Gaming Solutions Tom Nieman said, "Bass Park in downtown Bangor has hosted many historic events, including the first airplane flight in Maine, and it is fitting that the state's first casino should also be there. We are very happy to be a part of this new history in Maine and to have a strong relationship with Penn National."

The groundbreaking UBA is the next generation bill validator that can accept multiple currencies simultaneously in one version of software. The UBA sports the latest sensing technology, utilizing magnetic and optical sensors; a self-centering mechanism; three-time automatic retry feature; on-board memory; and front-access USB download port. The UBA is completed by its forward/backward-compatible, high-impact Plastic Cash Box. Casino Journal recently named the UBA as one of the Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Technology Products for 2004.

JCM's Sentry is an innovative small bill acceptor entry designed with easy-to-read LED indicators. The brilliant green, orange, red and blue LEDs can be seen easily seen on the casino floor, making customer service faster and problem detection fast and easy. Six different icons indicate the type of service necessary, and a last-bill denomination indicator helps settle disputes. The Sentry's design is adaptable to nearly every slot machine configuration or software protocol.
