Reported on Vital Vegas Feb 20202 – MGM Resorts testing automated beverage dispenser in casino. It appears to be situated in service area so it would actually be operated by employees. The bartender remains. It’ll be awhile before conversational AI (and customer charge method) are developed. Thanks to Frank at Olea Kiosks.
While everyone involved with the roll-out of drink dispensing machines have been sworn to secrecy (suck it, NDAs), we’ve heard from several employees they’re bracing for what could be the first wave of machines replacing jobs traditionally done by humans.
It’s no wonder Las Vegas unions dug their heels in during the recent contract negotiations. One of the sticking points: Automation.
It’s clear the union knew changes were coming and did their best to ensure employees losing their jobs would at least be treated fairly. Union leaders and members have said publicly they are “legitimately worried” about touchscreen beverage ordering systems.
G2E is the premier Gaming show held every year in Las Vegas. It is a longstanding tradition for kiosk companies to be at this show. This year the G2E will be highlighting casino gaming, hospitality, player loyalty kiosks, check-in, food self order, digital signage and sports betting kiosks. Here is a preview of G2E from Olea Kiosks perspective
Olea Kiosks Introduces The Franklin Bill Payment Kiosk
LOS ANGELES, Calif., October 10, 2019 — Olea Kiosks of Los Angeles welcomes the Franklin Bill Payment kiosk as the newest addition to its self-service line-up. This secure and versatile kiosk is built to accept payments of any kind, anywhere.
The Franklin Bill Payment kiosk has the ability to accept and dispense dollar bills, dispense coins, check acceptance and take credit card payments. Because it’s a modular solution, it can be customized in a number of pre-designed configurations which make it easy to deploy in situations with first to market opportunities or where time is of the essence.
This kiosk was introduced for those industries that have a high number of cash-paying customers. “In the past, cash-handling kiosks were very costly to deploy, but with this solution, we’ve implemented some standardizations, which makes complete self-service operation attainable,” explained Frank Olea, CEO of Olea Kiosks. “The unit can be equipped with several different models of bill acceptors and dispensers to accommodate all manufacturers. In addition, we work with a suite of turnkey application providers including M3t Financial Services, Nanonation, Self-Service Networks and Dynatouch that can be integrated into the kiosk,” added Olea.
The Franklin is perfect for any cash-paying application including simple bill pay, bill breaking, ATM services, and check cashing. With its loyalty features like club enrollment with card printing, point redemption, promotional games, TITO ticket printing for promotion vouchers, and bar code/QR code scanning for text/email promotions, it’s an ideal candidate for casinos as they can deploy the same look and feel across a variety of guest services.

New self-service solution designed to help casinos build loyalty programs, manage comps, increase ROI and more
Olea Kiosks has released the Monte Carlo Gaming Kiosk, its latest self-service solution for the casino industry.
The kiosk arrives at a critical time for the gaming industry. While the economy has improved and overall wagering is up, the spread of legalized gaming to new territories has meant more properties vying for the same bets. In addition, new generations of gamers have not followed their forbearers to the slots machines, leaving aging Baby Boomers to provide the lion’s share of revenue.
To combat those forces, casinos are trying everything from installing new interactive, skill-based games to investing more in entertainment. One of the more successful strategies has been to place significant attention on casino loyalty programs, where frequent players can log their visits, table time and wages and earn “comps” such as free plays, meals and perks at any casino-affiliated resort.
While loyalty programs have historically been managed by staff, kiosks provide an ideal complement to the team that administers the program. They allow operators to deploy staff to other service needs, they are easily approached and used by patrons, and as is the case with the Monte Carlo, they can serve other marketing functions as well.
Featuring two large LCD panels and brilliant, programmable LED attract lighting, the Monte Carlo is designed to help operators build their loyalty programs and make the overall casino experience more fun and efficient for players and resort guests.
Additional uses include:
Helping players join the casino’s loyalty program, update their data and check on their next rewards
Queue-busting at onsite quick-serve or fast casual dining
Self-checkout at resort retail shops
Check-in/check-out at the hotel
Enabling guests to make reservations at the spa
Purchasing tickets for events and shows
The second 22” LCD monitor allows deployers to promote products and services, advertise special prices at food venues, encourage participation in drawings and more. Finish options and the customizable lighting schemes ensure the kiosks will stand out on bright, busy casino floors, and their compact footprint helps them fit into virtually any floor plan.
Olea’s engineers, with years of experience designing for the casino industry, made sure the Monte Carlo was more than rugged enough to withstand the 24/7 operation of casino floors, even in smoking environments.
“We are fully invested in helping casinos meet the modern challenges facing their business,” said Frank Olea, CEO of Olea Kiosks. “The ability of kiosks to provide great service conveniently, as well as the liberty they provide deployers to move staff to more sensitive roles, are especially critical in environments where competition is high and every customer matters. That describes gaming now perfectly.”
