Our CGI Imperium Casino Management System communicates with the gaming machines through a specially designed device - Machine Scanner (MS). It is easily integrated to support all gaming machine vendors. MS links each slot or other connected machine under the command of a local server. The device allows real time network access and enables communications with Core Systems via SAS 6.2 protocol, it collects all the data from any activity on the floor and sends individual messages to the data base for every registered event. MS is designed to receive and execute a range of commands from the system to the gaming machines.
