Enhanced Player Experience 

TITO is a gaming solution that enables you to transfer credit from gaming machine to gaming machine via the inserting, printing and redeeming of bar-coded tickets.

The North Shore Tavern allows players to insert cash into a gaming machine and begin to play. When you are ready to finish, press COLLECT and a barcoded ticket is printed with the collected payout amount. This ticket can then either;

• Be inserted into another gaming machine via the bill acceptor.
• Redeemed for cash at a credit redemption terminal or cashier station.
