Churchill Downs Incorporated further strengthened its partnership with JCM Global by giving its newest parimutuel gaming entertainment venue, the Newport Racing & Gaming, the same systems that were installed by the latter at Oak Grove Racing earlier this month.

Said CDI Sr. Director Slot Strategy and Performance Duncan McConnell:

“Guests at Newport Racing & Gaming can now experience the same wagering transactions they have come to expect at Oak Grove Racing, Gaming & Hotel through this expanded partnership with JCM.”

Same As Oak Grove

Just last week, Churchill Downs Incorporated selected JCM as the exclusive gaming transactions solutions provider for its newly opened Oak Grove Racing, Gaming, & Hotel in Oak Grove, Kentucky.

Under that agreement, each of the 1,325 Historical Racing Machines at Oak Grove Racing was equipped with JCM’s award-winning iVIZION bill validator, GEN5 thermal printer, and Intelligent Cash Box (ICB) system. These systems from JCB Global have proven to save casino operators hundreds of thousands of dollars annually. Now, all these have been installed at Newport Racing as well.

Security, Accountability, & Efficiency

The iVIZION is a powerful system that reads more than 9.5 data points on each note. Its combination of optical sensors and mechanical security give gaming operators protection against cheats and counterfeiters. On the other hand, GEN5 has a very fast CPU and print speed. It also has the capability to print TITO, promotional tickets, wager tickets, and coupon promo templates.

The ICB is a management system that increases efficiency and eliminates human error on the part of the operator. For gaming customers, it gives them the ability to access important information securely, anytime and anywhere. The combination of the above mentioned solutions systems gives CDI’s gaming venues added value in security, accountability, and efficiency while also providing its customers unmatched gaming experience.
