Century Casinos Introduces Ticket-In, Ticket-Out Technology in Poland



    



    
    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Feb. 6 /CNW/ -- Century Casinos, Inc. (Nasdaq:  
CNTY; Vienna Stock Exchange) announced today that its subsidiary Casinos
Poland Ltd. began to retrofit all of the existing compatible slot machines at
its flagship casino in the Marriott Hotel in Warsaw, Poland, to ticket-in,
ticket-out (TITO) technology. In addition, new slot machines will also be
attached to the TITO system.
    

    
    Customers no longer have to handle coins or wait for an attendant for
cash transactions at the slot machines. Furthermore, this coin-free system
allows casino employees additional time for interaction with customers,
thereby increasing the overall player experience. In this move designed to
further enhance the guest experience and strengthen Casinos Poland's position
as market leader in the Polish casino market, the company plans to install the
TITO system at all of its locations throughout Poland.
    

    
    Century Casinos holds a 33.3% stake in Casinos Poland Ltd. since March
2007. Casinos Poland is the market leader in Poland with a 50% share of the
Polish casino market. The company owns and operates seven casinos in
international four and five star hotels and one slot casino throughout Poland.
