RFID Boosts Gaming Experience for Florida Entertainment Centers

GameTime has deployed an HF RFID system as part of a unified platform from Semnox at all five of its entertainment centers in order to make game play access faster and easier, while employees leverage RFID to access the point of sale and their individual storage lockers.

Since the system was taken live, Abecassis says, the greatest benefit has been the readers' robustness. Some machines are played 1,000 times or more per week, and the readers accomplish these transactions without requiring repairs or maintenance. "The reliability of the hardware is our greatest benefit," he states—but for gamers, the benefit has been easy access to the games. "It has definitely improved the guest experience."

In addition, the software enables analytics, such as offering a view into which games were used most often, and at what times. However, Abecassis notes, he was also able to accomplish this function with the mag-stripe system.

Since launching in 2008, Jose says, Semnox has offered a single unified platform for reservations, ticket purchases, and game and locker access. The firm also offers an app that managers can use to view, in real time, the sales rates at any specific location.

GameTime, Jose says, is an example of a customer that is using Parafait as a full platform for self-payment ticketing, game access and employee credentialing, as well as for reservations. The company plans to open three more Florida sites next year—in Kissimmee, Clear Water and Plantation—and to deploy the Parafait system at those locations as well.
