### Consistency Analyser

#### Are you sure your machines performing on target?

#### Consistency Analyser can quickly reveal the cases of prolonged machine malfunction.... Here is how:

## According to the laws of probability under normal conditions the actual rate of return must continuously oscillate around the expected rate of return.

Gaming machines are designed to retain a certain percentage
of bets. This percentage is known as ‘carded percentage’, or
‘theoretical expected rate of return’. Another performance
indicator of gaming machines is the actual rate of return.
This rate is the percentage ratio between the machine’s
actual revenue and the volume of turnover during an
accounting period of one month for example.

According to laws of probability—which all gaming machines
are based on—under normal conditions the actual rate of
return must continuously oscillate around the expected rate
of return. The volume of turnover and the volatility of
games determine the length of this cyclical fluctuation.
Over an extended time, the sums of positive and negative
variances between these two rates must offset each other,
producing a negligible gap between historical expected
return and historical actual return.

#### How does Consistency Analyser work?

By using advanced charting
techniques, our module depicts trends of expected and actual
return over a twelve month period. It also calculates the
variance for each month and shows the standard deviation for
the whole period. A drop-down list allows you to choose your
machines. For each machine, fluctuations are visually
represented in a stimulating and easy-to-follow chart. The
module also incorporates an alert signal based on cumulative
degrees of dispersion of actual revenue above or under the
expected revenue.

Consistency Analyser is a business intelligence tool for
performance management. It can be used before considering
machine conversion or replacement, or to test the
reliability of your machines regarding its level of
‘Looseness / Tightness’ before drawing on any marketing
strategies. Substantial improvement in revenue can be
achieved by identifying machines with a long record of
inconsistency.

This powerful, low-cost, high-value
application is entirely based on Microsoft Excel. The source data is readily available from any
gaming data system. During training workshop you will learn
how to use Excel to design and build this application,— and of course you
can further unleash your creativity and apply your new skills in
other areas of club's management reporting.
