Acres Manufacturing was founded by John Acres, the inventor of casino systems technology.
Since 1972, the Acres name has been synonymous with groundbreaking casino technology. In 1981, Acres started his first business, Electronic Data Technologies. EDT created a system that allowed casinos to track slot machine players by using loyalty cards, offering gamblers rewards based on how much they played.
He started his next business, called Mikohn, in 1986. Mikohn devised the modern progressive jackpot system in which slot machine jackpots increase over time, creating growing excitement for players. When Acres and his partner sold the company in 1989, Acres’ initial investment of $120,000 turned into $6 million.
His third company, Acres Gaming, invented a system in which slot machines awarded instant bonuses based on current or accumulated play. Acres Gaming took $17 million to reach consistent profitability; Acres sold it in 2003 for $143 million, and the casino industry has been at a technological standstill ever since.
Acres Manufacturing has revolutionized the casino industry again with Foundation Casino Management System.
Foundation is designed to reinvigorate an industry currently incapable of meeting modern consumer demands. Armed with a massive amount of real-time data, an adaptable credit meter on any game, and bonuses deployable to a player’s mobile device, casinos will be able to optimize every customer relationship and maximize long-term profitability.
Foundation has three main components.
1. GAMING MACHINE INTERFACE (GMI)
Foundation is universally compatible with any modern slot machine, the GMI gathers 100% of slot machine data in real-time and can change the credit meter on command. A built-in expansion port allows legacy systems to interface, allowing casinos to operate foundation with no loss of functionality to existing technology.
The Bridge is the key to Foundation’s decentralized, ultra-reliable design. A single bridge connects up to 8 GMIs, allowing it command and control of up to 8 slot machines. A multitude of Bridges exist within the casino (# of slots / 8), each able to process millions of events each day. Casino data is safer and more secure than ever before. All data is encrypted and stores safely for up to 2 years in the event of power failure.
The Blender contains real-time data from every slot machine connected to Foundation. Here, external data sources can be interfaced, and credit meter commands can be sent to any game at any moment. Casinos possess unrestricted API access to their Blender environment and can siphon data into its own databases for storage. This structure enables casinos to own and control all of their slot data.
Foundation enables players to intuitively fund slots and tables via their mobile devices. Casinos can easily interface non-gaming payment terminals, allowing a single wallet solution across the entire operation. Layered with real-time data and bonusing capability, Foundation causes the mobile device to become an integral component of the player experience. This best-of-breed solution is also the quickest and easiest path to cashless gaming for virtually any casino.
Foundation reports any SAS meter change in real-time, giving casinos over 1000x more data than has ever been collected before. These metrics will reveal what really influences spend and loyalty decisions. Importantly, Foundation’s structure gives casinos all ownership and control over this data, allowing it to be interfaced to anything the casino wants.
Foundation is an incredibly powerful floor-wide bonusing system. Foundation™ can write credits, issue free play, change the paytable, initiate free spins, trigger bonuses and more! Leveraging massive amounts of real-time data, Foundation™ allows casinos to incentivize the right player the right amount at the right time. Any trigger event – in machine or out – can trigger a reward credit to any game at any moment. The same event can also trigger an entertaining “reveal” sequence or game onto any display, mobile device, or sound system.
FOUNDATION HARDWARE DELIVERS UNPRECEDENTED FLEXIBILITY
Real-time control of slot data and credit meters allow casinos to optimize each player experience for maximum profitability. And when interfaced to any other data source, casinos can service and thrill their players like never before. With Foundation, funds can be sent from a player’s bank account to any slot machine, an NFL touchdown can trigger a bonus and an unruly losing streak can be instantly mitigated in the interest of long-term loyalty.
FOUNDATION the future is now.
