TransAct teams with AIGC for Japan push

TransAct Technologies said it has teamed up with AIGC Co., a new consulting agency focused on the potential casino gaming market in Japan, to promote its products.

AIGC, headed by 25-year casino gaming executive Akiyoshi Isoi, will showcase Transact’s products to established gaming equipment manufacturers, international and local casino operators, government officials and to-be-created regulatory agencies.

“Aki’s sterling reputation and 25-year track record of success in the casino gaming industry make him the perfect partner to promote our printer and software technology solutions in what we believe will become a large new casino market,” said Transact Chairman and CEO Bart Shuldman.

“We are confident that with Aki’s support, TransAct will be optimally positioned to capture a strong share of the casino gaming printer market as the Japan opportunity develops.”

The Japanese casino gaming market is expected to be a major opportunity, including the initial licensing of up to three large-scale integrated casino resort properties; two in large cities and one in a regional market. The request for proposal process for interested operating partners is expected to begin shortly and conclude later in 2018 which could result in the first integrated resort properties opening as early as 2021 or 2022.
