Bruce McKee, general manager of FireKeepers Casino, and his team had to make many tough decisions to ensure that the casino would be a first class casino in a competitive marketplace. “As the General Manager of FireKeepers and a representative of Full House Resorts and the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi Indians, I had to make sure that all the technology in our slot machines would be functional, durable and most importantly would provide unquestionable reliability for our guests. After testing and evaluating samples from all the major suppliers, we chose MEI to be the sole supplier of our bill validators,” said McKee.
FireKeepers Casino Director of Slots, Steven Senk, states: “I am very pleased we went with CASHFLOW. They delivered on time, met our tight budget and we have not been disappointed with the products performance.”
