    The new SDS Version 8 software provides Foxwoods with the full suite of financial reporting tools and includes technology for creating a cashless environment utilizing both ticketing and electronic funds transfer (EFT).
    Recognized as the industry leader with more than 140,000 machines and 145 casino customers worldwide, the SDS product line offers slot machine cash monitoring, accounting, security and maintenance capabilities, enabling operators to accurately analyze performance and accountability.
