Choosing the Right Equipment

Upon choosing to install Equipment to the Venue, the user will need to choose whether they are going to be using New equipment or Second-hand equipment.

Select the condition of the equipment

New Equipment

The user will need to provide the following information:

  • Type of Equipment;
    • Gaming Machine (Any Electronic Gaming Machine (EGM))
    • Controller (Linked Progressive Jackpot Systems (LPJS))
    • Subsidiary Equipment
  • Manufacturer (An active Dealer license holder)
Enter the details of the equipment

Second-hand Equipment

The user will need to provide the following information;

  • GMID (Unique identification code for Equipment that has been previously Authorised in Quickchange).

Because the GMID is the identification of a stored configuration of a particular type of Equipment, the user will then have the option of whether they’d like to Convert, or Install as per the current configuration. DMS can be contacted to provide the Serial Number if you don’t have it handy – dms@max.com.au or 1800 307 551

Model Details

If the user has chosen to install new Equipment, they will need to choose the specification of the equipment and follow on information that is applicable to the Equipment.

Specification

The user will choose the Game Specification number for the machine to be installed, from a list of available Specifications.

The search bar can be used to find a specific spec number or model name.

Version

Upon selecting a Specification, the user will need to select the Version of the Game. This is a 32 digit Alphanumeric value identifying the different Program Identities (PIDs) of the Game. All active versions will appear as drop down options. One of these must be selected.

Serial Number

Input a valid and unique alphanumeric that matches the format of the device protocol and manufacturer. 

A unique GMID is generated for this equipment the moment the user confirms the Serial Number.

The input cannot utilize the same serial number as a previously destroyed machine.

Variation and Denomination

The Variation is a unique identifier for a set configuration for an EGM that indicates the theoretical return to player percentage of the machine. The percentage values are not visible in Quickchange.

The Denomination denotes the credit value for game play.

Multi-Terminal Gaming Machine (MTGM) Attachment

If the classification of the EGM is an MTGM Machine, the user can choose to attach it to an existing group of other MTGMs or create a new MTGM group. If there are no existing MTGM groups, the user will need to create a group.

MTGM Groups require multiple machines and will be an invalid installation until there are enough Machines in the group to meet the minimum Terminal requirements defined by OLGR. Maximum Terminals are defined by the Machine Model.

Jackpot Levels

If the classification of the EGM is an iSAP machine, the user can input and select the Jackpot levels for the Machine.

Standard Progressive Controller Attachment

Assuming the EGM Model is flagged for Secondary Function Support, this allows the user to choose whether or not to attach an EGM to a Standard Controller (Standard LPJS).

The user can then select to attach an EGM to a Standard Controller that is already installed at the Venue, or if the Standard Controller is not available, the user may decide to install one. This will pause the current EGM installation and commence a new installation for the Standard Controller. The user can finish the EGM installation following a valid Standard Controller installation.

Standard Controllers cannot be installed to the Venue in any other way except through the installation process of an EGM. 

The configuration details of the Model outline the acceptable Jackpot levels that can be associated with the EGM.

Mystery Progressive Controller Attachment

Allows the user to choose whether or not to attach an EGM to a Mystery Progressive Controller (Mystery LPJS).

The user can then select to attach the EGM to a Mystery Controller that is already installed at the Venue, or if the Mystery Controller is not available, the user may decide to install it. This will pause the current installation of the EGM and commence a new installation of a Mystery Controller. The user can finish the EGM installation following a valid Mystery Controller installation.

Controller Details

Details of the Installation that are specific to the installation of a Controller and not an EGM.

Jackpot Levels

Depending on the type of LPJS Controller that is being installed, the user will have to input OR select their Jackpot levels.

Selecting Jackpot Levels
Attachments

Confirm and Finish

If all relevant steps are complete, the Confirm and Finish button is shown with a summary of the selections made.

Clicking this button returns the user to the main application flow with a summary of the work item/s they have configured.
