LAS VEGAS (November 9, 2020) – Once again, JCM Global has expanded its long-term partnership with Churchill Downs Incorporated (“CDI”) this time at CDI’s newest parimutuel gaming entertainment venue, Newport Racing & Gaming in Newport, Ky.

Earlier this month, JCM announced CDI had chosen JCM’s iVIZION® bill validator, GEN5® Thermal Printer, and ICB® Intelligent Cash Box system for its newly opened Oak Grove Racing, Gaming & Hotel in Oak Grove, Ky., and now JCM has installed these same award-winning solutions on each of the 500 HRMs (Historical Racing Machines) at Newport Racing & Gaming.

“We are pleased that guests at Newport Racing & Gaming will be able to experience the same quality wagering transactions they have come to expect at Oak Grove Racing, Gaming & Hotel through this expanded partnership with JCM,” said Duncan McConnell, Sr. Director Slot Strategy and Performance at CDI. 

“At Oak Grove Racing, Gaming & Hotel and now at Newport Racing & Gaming, Churchill Downs can be confident in the unmatched protection and efficiencies JCM solutions bring,” JCM SVP of Sales Marketing, & Operations Dave Kubajak said. “We are honored to have been chosen as the exclusive provider of such products at both properties, and we look forward to continuing our partnership with CDI for many years to come.”

JCM’s iVIZION protects operators with its industry-leading CIS (Contact Image Sensor) technology which reads more than 9.5 million data points on each note and captures more than twice the data of the nearest competitor product. It also deploys an unrivaled, powerful combination of optical sensors and mechanical security to provide unmatched levels of protection against counterfeiters and cheats.

 Fast, flexible, and intelligent, JCM’s GEN5 Thermal Printer has an incredibly quick CPU and print speed. GEN5 also has the intelligence and flexibility to print TITO and promotional tickets, various wager tickets, and templated promo coupons.

 JCM’s award-winning ICB drop management system is field-proven to increase efficiencies, eliminate human error, and save operators hundreds of thousands of dollars annually. Its innovative combination of management dashboards, mobility, and customizable web reporting allows users to access essential information securely anytime, anywhere.
