IN THE INDUSTRY?

Because Everything’s Better in

Introducing…
Chessington, Surrey UK, 26 Sept 2012 – SEGA announces the release of Key Master Colors.

About Key Master
In the fall of 2010, SEGA took delivery of the very first Key Master. Over the past 2 years, Key
Master has gone on to become the No1 game in the industry and has shown itself to be more than just
capable of high earning, it’s a solidly built machine with many features operators and location owners
have been pleasantly surprised by – features that increase reliability, durability, flexibility and security.
But like many prize-vending games, Key Master had an appliance-white, monochromatic color scheme.
About Key Master Colors
Several out-of-the-box operators requested SEGA offer Key Master in other colors.
Why?
These operators wanted to bank a number of Key Masters in the same location with each offering a
different prize pack marketed to different demographics i.e. all male prizes, all female prizes, all high
value prizes, etc.
The Problem?
When placed side-by-side, these operators were unable to create enough of a distinction between the
appliance-white games using prizes alone. Players didn’t see enough differences one game to the other
to create awareness, interest, desire and action on their part.

The Solution?
Introducing Key Masters Colors.
“Key Master Colors creates an immediate visual distinction from one game to the other,” said SEGA
US General Manger, Pete Gustafson. “This distinction in colors creates a curious player and a curious
player creates higher revenues and faster ROI’s.” Income tests by SEGA have concluded that the
addition of Key Master Colors does not dilute income across the machines but with the right mix of
merchandise, actually increases the overall income.

SEGA put quite a bit of thought into selecting the five new colors. “Our objective was to create an array
of colors schemes that were both contemporary and visually stimulating,” continued Gustafson. “We
looked to the consumer electronics and sports apparel industries and saw companies like Nike offering
custom color schemes for athletic shoes and Apple offering a wide variety of colors for I-Pods and other
products. Those bright and bold color palates inspired our choices for the five versions of Key Master
Colors.”
The 5 colors are named Coral Pink, Lemon Yellow, Ice Blue, Orange Sherbet and Electric Lime.
Key Master Colors allows operators to place visually distinct games in the same location and
merchandise them for individual demographics,” stated Gustafson. “We envision operators placing Coach
Purses, manicure coupons, and day spa certificates in Coral Pink Key Masters next to an Ice Blue
game loaded with team sports apparel, handheld game consoles, and Madden 13 game software next to
an Electric Lime game fitted with high-end personal consumer electronics devices. The possibilities are
only limited by the operator’s imagination.”

Assembled Dimensions
All versions of Key Master fit in the same assembled foot print – 39”D X 38”W X 73”H.

Acucount AC 603 Coin Scale. The easiest, quickest and quietest way to count bulk coins on location.

February 22, 2012

Birmingham Vending Company Website:

People in the Coin Machine business have to count money for their profession.   This is not glamorous, but often dirty, tedious work.  Anyone, who has to count serveral coins can testify to the monotonous task, particularly for hand counting.

I have personally used every method available for counting coins.

We have a Cummins Jetsort professional counter that is used for counting larger sums of quarters for delivery to the bank.  This is the clearly the easiest and most efficient way to count coins in larger than $1000 dollar quantities.  The machine is fast and bags the coins in the appropriate amounts for delivery to the bank.  Its efficient, easy and the counter is just plain awesome.

We also own manual and electric coin counters by Klopp for use on locations.  The electric is easier and faster, but of course, has to be plugged in.  The manual machines are efficient, work well and do not need electricity.  The coin tray size limits how many coins you can count at a time.  You also have to manually scoop the coins into the rotary area to go through the machine.  Manual and Electric models have constant quarter sticking issues that you have to loosen.

We also sell and service some imported electric coin counters.  These are efficient and offer a similar counting experience to the Klopp machines.

Wholesale coin counters

Coin Scale for easy money counting

AC 603 Coin Scale

My favorite model for on location counting is the AC 603 coin scale by Acucount.  It really cannot be any easier.  You turn it on, pour in the quarters and right down the total.  It is quick, quiet and saves a step.  If you are collecting a location with multiple machines, and you like a total per machine, there is simply no easier or faster way to accomplish this task.  A manual rotary counter, takes a few minutes to get through a few hundred dollars in quarters.  You have to continually scoop the money into the counter, you have to crank the counter and have some system for holding the bag as it fills with coins.  Then you have to do the math to convert the numeric count into a total amount of money.  With the scale, you pour the coins in, write down the total from the screen and convert to a bag.  I estimate a savings in time of four minutes per machine.  This time is valuable and adds up quickly.

This is not the only scale that I have tried.  Other scales have to be “set up” each time you go onto location.  This certainly reduces ease of use.  You only set up the AC 603 Coin Scale once, and then it stays ready as you collect or count coins.

Best Coin Scale

Features:

  • AC603, by far the best method for counting bulk coin

  • Including: Pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, Half dollars, dollar coin. And 2 open spots for tokens, etc.

  • FAST: All counts are done in less than 1.5 seconds

  • SILENT: No reason to sound like a One Armed Bandit – You do not want to advertise where and how much money you have

  • Compact and Light

  • AC603 weighs only 3.14 lbs. with the cover, Tray 4.4 lbs. including the case, totals out at 6.9 lbs.

  • Accurate and easy to use

  • Internal circuitry and technology allows for simplistic and reliable dependability

  • Extremely user friendly, 99% or its users have complete competency in its operation in less than 10 minutes
