Crown selects BMM International as exclusive tester

August 4th

Melbourne's Crown Casino, the largest casino in the southern hemisphere with 350 tables and 2500 slots, has selected BMM International as its exclusive testing agency for all gaming systems, including gaming machines, tables and internet gaming developments.

 "We are proud to be involved with Crown, which reinforces our commitment to quality testing and assurance" said Hugh Monypenny, Managing Director of BMM International.

"We believe we were selected by Crown as their exclusive supplier of Accredited Testing Facility (ATF) services for gaming systems because they see that BMM provides the highest standard of service and delivers the greatest value and quality of all ATFs" he added.

BMM has had a long-standing relationship with Crown Casino, having successfully tested systems for Crown's temporary casino in 1994, and all slot system modifications and upgrades since the permanent facility opened at Melbourne's Southbank on May 8th 1997.

"The team at BMM has proven that their testing of Crown gaming systems is thorough and of a high quality," explained Mr Monypenny. "Over the years, BMM has demonstrated to Crown that we respond quickly and reliably to their new gaming developments."

One of the most recent projects involved testing Crown's new cashless gaming system, which is currently on trial at the property. The cashless system has been operating in supervised test mode for the past few weeks with selected players and machines, and is expected to be launched as a live, full scale operation by the end of August.

BMM also tested Crown's new game Rapid Roulette, a semi-automated version of traditional roulette developed in conjunction with Star Games. Following its initial success at Crown over the past few months, the product is now slated to become
available to other casinos internationally.

Headquartered in Melbourne, Victoria, BMM International (, also conducts all games testing of Aristocrat, Konami, and VLC machines at Crown Casino. Crown's 2500 slots comprise approximately 88% Aristocrat, 4% Konami, 4% VLC and 4% IGT/Olympic machines.

BMM has recently established an office in Sydney, with a North American office expected to be opened later this year.
