Aristocrat Technologies Inc. has been awarded a contract
for the installation of its OASIS casino management system at the Barbary Coast
Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
OASIS systems have been
previously installed and are successfully operating at other Coast ÂÃ‚ÂResorts
properties in Las Vegas, including the Suncoast Hotel & Casino, ÂÃ‚ÂOrleans
Hotel & Casino and Gold Coast Hotel & Casino.
The installation will replace another manufacturer’s
system and will monitor more than 645 games in the casino. The OASIS system
purchased includes Super-PlayMATE player tracking, BlackBart game machine
accounting, Diagnostic and Surveillance monitoring and OmniView real-time
graphical display. ÂÃ‚ÂInstallation is set to begin in April 2002.
“Our business goal is to create partnerships with our
clients, helping them achieve their goals, and I’m honored to say we have
achieved a very successful partnership with Coast Resorts through our ÂÃ‚ÂOASIS
system,’’ said Mark Newburg, president of Aristocrat Technologies Inc.
“With this installation, ÂÃ‚ÂOASIS is now in every Coast
Resorts property in Las Vegas, and the total system solution OASIS provides now
benefits Coast Resorts’ customers at each of their properties.”
Marcus Suan, vice
president of slot operations for Coast Resorts, said, “The level of innovation
and reliability OASIS has brought to our properties is invaluable. Not only has
OASIS provided us with a total casino management solution, but more importantly,
it has enabled us to take care of our customers even better than we did before.
“And, bottom line, in today’s market, customer service
will be what distinguishes one property from the next.”
The OASIS casino management system utilizes the popular
Windows operating platform and advanced electronic monitoring equipment to
collect, integrate, analyze and report information on player and gaming machine
activity. OASIS enables operators to link all of their data centers together,
including casino, hotel, food and beverage, and point of sale.
Aristocrat Technologies Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of
Aristocrat Leisure Limited, is responsible for all North and South American
operations from its headquarters in Las Vegas.
With its acquisition of Casino Data Systems in June 2001,
Aristocrat now employs a staff of more than 600 and offers a diversified product
line that reaches into virtually all facets of the casino floor.
In addition to both video and stepper slots, the company
provides casino management systems, multisite progressive (MSP) systems,
progressive jackpot meters and customized overhead sign packages.
