Best Practices

Cleaning specialized gaming devices on a regularly scheduled maintenance routine aids in operational efficiency, reduced service calls and longevity of the equipment. Based on the manufacturers recommenda-tions and customer feedback, we encourage the following best practices for optimal results:

Bill Acceptors: Every time you empty machine or at least 1 X per week

Clean more frequently before and after periods of high use.

Money is exceptionally dirty and can easily cause bill rejection and immediate loss of revenue, mis-reads, and extreme customer frus-tration if not cleaned properly.

Dirty Device Symptoms

  • Bill rejection
  • Misreads / Walk aways
  • Out-of-order signs
 

Card Readers: Every 1000 swipes or at least 1—2 X per month

Clean more frequently after periods of high use.

Cleaning should be done more frequently for both credit card and player tracking slots in areas prone to an abundance of dust, food and drink particles and ash.

Dirty Device Symptoms

  • Card rejection
  • Reader error
  • Repeated swipes
   

Currency Counters: 1 x per week

Money is exceptionally dirty and can cause device misreads, counting inaccuracy and opera-tional failure if not cleaned properly or regularly. Failure to clean currency counters fre-quently can cause bill slippage, unbalanced ledgers and tally shortages.

Dirty Device Symptoms

  • Bill rejection
  • Batch back-ups
  • Inaccurate totals
   

Thermal /Ticket Printers: Every 3-4 media roll changes or at least 1-2 X per month

Clean more frequently after periods of high use.

Printers become dirty from “paper dust” and adhesives as well as environmental contami-nants. Cards clean the printhead and any build-up on the printer's rollers.

Dirty Device Symptoms

  • Paper jams
  • Poor print and image quality
  • Illegible winnings
