Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati awards VSR Industries contract for the manufacture and installation of over 2,000 slot bases and 19,000 high-security gaming locks
LAS VEGAS, March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VSR Industries will play a critical role on the slot floor for the grand opening of the new Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati. HCC contracted VSR to produce and install the 2000 + slot bases and high-security gaming locks for the variety of slot machines on the new property. Few things are more important to casino operations than security and player experience, and therein lie VSR's key responsibilities.
"Most people do not realize that a casino property legally cannot open their doors unless our job is executed to perfection. That's why our installation role is so critical -- we do more than manufacture locks and bases."
--Colton Vollmann, COO-Partner, VSR Industries
What is a slot base? Upon casual observation, most casino patrons do not realize that slot machines are rather small, and require a slot base to achieve the proper height for playing. Slot bases do more than support the game at the proper playing height, however. They also serve to add architectural style to the slot floor by way of an almost limitless array of facades, trim, colors, finishes, bullnose edges and footrests. These design options allow casino properties to tailor the look and feel of their slot floor to compliment the interior decor and enhance the unique entertainment experience they are providing.
Ecco slot bases are unique in the world of metal slot bases because of their universal mounting system, which allows casino floors to quickly and easily mount a wide variety of games without any other special hardware. This makes the addition of new games, or rearrangement of slot floors extremely easy and efficient. Ecco also derives its name from the material and cost savings inherent in this efficient new design.
VSR works hand in hand with casino operations and security to establish proprietary lock codes to ensure the highest level of security on the gaming floor. Every step of the lock manufacturing and coding process is strictly monitored at the VSR manufacturing facility in Henderson, NV.
Other recent VSR/Caesars partnerships in the area include Horseshoe Cleveland (1,850 bases and over 15,000 locks), and ThistleDown Racino (1,080 bases and more than 9,000 locks).
Established in 1969, VSR Industries has grown into an industry-leading lean manufacturing facility, employing over 200 people worldwide. VSR specializes in the manufacture and final installation of high security gaming locks, wood and metal slot bases, slot cabinets and custom fabrication. With over 4 decades in operation, VSR remains the only base and lock manufacturer who controls every aspect of what becomes the final product-no middlemen. No other company in the industry can make this claim. Further, no other lock or base manufacturer holds licenses in more gaming jurisdictions worldwide than VSR. VSR Industries remains a privately held company, based in Las Vegas, Nevada.
