A networked cash dispensing system and a method for remote management of, and trend analysis for, networked cash dispensing systems is provided. The networked cash dispensing system comprises a casino transaction kiosk, a server, and a network. The casino transaction kiosk includes a central processing unit adapted to operate the kiosk and a local memory adapted to store information thereon. The server includes a database and management software that includes a data mining software portion and a user interface software portion therein. The data mining software portion is adapted to query the database. A network is adapted to allow the casino transaction kiosk and the server to communicate and to permit the transfer of information stored on the local memory of the casino transaction kiosk to the server. The management software is adapted to analyze this information. The management software allows for remote auto-impressing of the casino transaction kiosk.
