At the heart of our system lies the cashless payment features which are more commonly known
in the industry as a debit card or simply a "card system." The Embed System can replace traditional
methods of transaction like tokens, coins, and admission tickets with a simple card. Guests use a
plastic card, similar to a credit card, to make all of their transactions which leads to a much
more simplified and more enjoyable experience. Owners benefit from the endless marketing and
pricing opportunities that become available, while at the same time contain operating costs
and improve cash control.
Guests purchase cards from either a staffed Point of Sale Station or a Self-Service Kiosk.
These cards are customized for each location and become a souvenir as well as a constant
reminder of the good times had at your location. The cards can be loaded with any amount,
encouraging guests to "Load & Go" so they can enjoy all points of fun offered at the location.
To play, the guest swipes their card through the reader attached to each game and attraction.
The appropriate value or privilege is deducted, allowing the game to start or access to be
granted. Upon swiping, the remaining card balance is displayed for added convenience.
Guests can reload their play card with additional credit at any sales terminal or
kiosk at any time.
Why a Card System
- Unlock Marketing Opportunities
- Create value added packages to entice higher spending
- Variable Pricing Options (not tied to coin or token increments)
- Reduce Labor & Shrinkage
- Expand Guest Loyalty and drive repeat visits
Hardware that Performs
Embed's Exclusive Color-Glo™ Swiper Series
It's a whole new way to play! Embed's innovative line of color-changing, interactive debit card

that they were successful.

full line of self-service equipment designed for facilities of varying size and scope.
At the forefront of the self-service line, the Embed Full Service Kiosk allows for unattended sales and
reloads of cards and is engineered for the rugged environment which it serves. In addition, guests can
view play history and card balances as well as register their card for protection against card loss or
theft. This unit can be configured to accept coin, currency and credit cards as acceptable forms of payment.
An integrated illuminated light box is standard and offers a highly visible location in which to display

Say goodbye to the endless array of data cable and say hello to Embed Wireless. And when we say wireless,
we mean true, long range radio based communication and not store bought wi-fi equipment. Embed's wireless
communication system for games and attractions is a cost effective and flexible way to connect your
readers back to the central system server. Approved for both indoor and outdoor use, Embed Wireless
offers superior range, is FCC certified, and features built-in redundancy for maximum system performance.
Electronic Ticket Interface (ETI)
Exclusive to Embed, the ETI is used when the site elects to eliminate paper tickets dispensing from their
redemption games. This optional device can be attached to each ticket redemption game to monitor awarded
tickets paid out to the guest. The "electronic" tickets are added directly to the guest's card. The ETI
emulates a standard ticket dispenser and incorporates a large format ultra bright LED display with
scrolling text, animations, real-time ticket counter and audible device. At Embed, we know that
re-creating the theatre of winning is critical to successful electronic ticket operation.
Consult your Embed Representative to discuss how electronic tickets may work for your facility.
- Eliminate cost associated with paper tickets
- Eliminate costly ticket counting and shredding equipment
- Eliminate labor hours devoted to filling tickets and clearing ticket jams
