The transfer of cash in casinos is a highly regulated process both by the government and by the casino auditors. Money is regularly transferred from change machines, slot machines and gambling tables by swapping out the locked cash-box.
Silver Reef Casino in Ferndale, Washington turned to CheckMate Capital Assets to improve the tracking of the cash-box transfers and to save time and money. Each cash-box has a bar code, each machine or gaming table has a bar code, and each security officer has a bar coded badge. Each time a cash-box is swapped the transaction is recorded using a portable bar code scanner, identifying when and where the cash-box was picked up, who did it, and when it was transferred to the cashier.
Silver Reef Casino not only is meeting the tracking regulations, but they’ve found they need fewer cash-boxes and that the transfer function happens much more quickly.
