Shuldman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TransAct Technologies. “The Epic 950 continues to set the industry standard for quality and reliability and our customers recognize the strong return they can generate on their investment in this printing solution. This combination has enabled TransAct to grow its global casino market share and win new business such as this exclusive agreement with Sioux City Entertainment, and we are excited to play a role as the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino brand comes to downtown Sioux City.”

Todd Moyer, General Manager of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sioux City, commented, “As we evaluated TITO printing options for our gaming floor, the technology and advanced functionality of the Epic 950 clearly differentiated it from the pack. We are excited to work directly with TransAct Technologies to bring their best-in-class gaming printer solution to our new facility in downtown Sioux City as we seek to deliver a guest experience never before seen in the market. The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino brand is synonymous with leading-edge entertainment and we believe the Epic 950 will assist our gaming operations teams as they deliver on that promise to our customers.”
