JCM Global’s UBA Pro Family took centre stage at this year’s ICE London, while the cash-handling specialist also demonstrated its MRX Modular Banknote Recycler and iVIZION bill validator at the show.


JCM Global presented its portfolio of cutting-edge cash-handling products at this year’s ICE London, highlighting the UBA Pro Family, which the company affirms “sets a new standard in bill validation”.

“This year, a major product focus is our UBA Pro Family of products, which we’ve now presented at a number of international trade shows,” said Payam Zadeh, general manager for JCM Europe. “The product suite consists of a bill validator – the UBA Pro – and two bill recyclers for two and four denominations – the UBA Pro-RT and UBA Pro- RQ.”

“We’re using a single sensor for a multitude of applications – from slot machines in the casino or street markets, to redemption machines – and this flexibility is very helpful from the perspective of reducing costs for the OEMs.

“So backed by the UBA Pro Family, we’re expecting very good numbers this year in the EMEA and I have to say this edition of ICE was exceptionally successful overall,” he added.

The company also demonstrated its MRX Modular Banknote Recycler at ICE, which is perfect for a wide range of payment terminal types and tables. Accepting two banknotes per second, with an escrow capacity of up to 30 notes and a recycler cassette capacity of up to 60 notes x 2 drums; operators can select the number of cassettes they need for each individual application – making it the last word in flexibility.

Another major product focus at this year’s show was the iVIZION bill validator, which processes banknotes faster than any other in its class with 100 percent total image capture, ensuring higher accuracy and security. Alongside this, the RDM, iPro-RC, and Vega bill acceptors/recyclers were also demonstrated on JCM’s stand.

On the system technologies side, JCM displayed its ICB (Intelligent Cash Box); Ticket2Go, a flexible ticketing solution for both analogue and digital platforms, which can increase machine uptime and reduce operator costs; and PromoNET, which allows operators to personalise their promotions, reward individual player performance and implement couponing across their operation.

“Systems technologies are an increasingly important part of JCM’s business,” Zadeh explained. “We’re a cash cycle management company and the solutions we provide – which are capable of covering the entire cash cycle in any casino or gaming operation – reflect that.”

ICE 2020 attendees also had the chance to see JCM’s FUZION system, which connects the company’s GEN5 printer and the iVIZION bill validator with an operator’s CMS to deliver playerfocused features and functionalities directly to the gaming machine, including lottery tickets, sports wagering, and promotions.

ICE attendees were also able to see the Fuzion-ready GEN5 printer in standalone form. The GEN5 is capable of lottery ticket and race/sport ticket vending as well as tax forms printing. Additionally, it has 50 percent more capacity than a standard unit and presents complete tickets to reduce player interference.
