Casino Cash Machines to Spit out Ticket-In-Ticket-Out Vouchers

A Las Vegas company that has cash access machines on the floors of more than 900 casinos is preparing to roll out devices that will print ticket in-ticket out coupons that can be used in slot machines. Global Cash Access Inc.'s Electronic Debit Interactive Terminal Housing -- known as EDITH -- has been approved by regulators and the first machines will be on local casino floors by the fourth quarter.

Tom Sears, executive vice president of business development for GCA, said the device is in the last stage of lab testing and debugging. Ten casinos have ordered the stand-alone kiosks and the company is expected to make a big push to market them at next month's Global Gaming Expo trade show in Las Vegas. Sears did not disclose which casinos would be the first to have the devices.

Like automated teller machines, the EDITH kiosks can be used to access a casino patron's bank account with a debit card. But instead of dispensing cash, the machines print bar-coded tickets that can be inserted into cashless slot machines on the casino floor and turned into credits that can be wagered.

Sears said the machines would have daily transaction withdrawal limits similar to those on standard ATMs. EDITH machines also print transaction receipts and deduct fees for their use.
