Konami Gaming, Inc. delivers leading games and systems developments to support the tribal gaming industry’s ongoing tradition of success
US.- Konami Gaming, Inc. announced an advanced lineup of linked progressive series, competitive slot cabinets, and leading-edge systems technology appearing at the Annual National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA) Tradeshow & Convention in San Diego on March 26 – 27, 2020. Konami’s latest DIMENSION 49J™ video slot is featuring original linked progressive series, from proven performers like All Aboard™ to recognizable brands like Silent Hill®. An estimated 6,000 tribal gaming executives, professionals, and representatives have the chance to interact with never-before-seen game series, across a mix of high-performing slot hardware including KX 43™, Concerto Opus™, and the new Opus Dual™.
Throughout the two-day event, Konami Booth #1725 spotlights top SYNKROS® systems technology with transformative possibilities spanning player tracking to Title 31 / Anti-Money Laundering (AML). The company is also revealing a 63-foot trailer truck filled with its latest pioneering products, as this year’s NIGA 2020 event offers a preview to Konami’s WINovation Road Show multi-city tour.
“The Indian Gaming industry has a strength, ingenuity, and forward mindset that continually pushes pioneering ideas across the space,” said Tom Jingoli, executive vice president & chief commercial officer at Konami Gaming, Inc. “At this year’s event, Konami is expressly focused on empowering tribal operators with future entertainment and technology, to support both immediate and enduring results.”
Guests at the 35th Annual Indian Gaming Show have access to Konami’s latest premium game titles on the all-new DIMENSION 49J. A proven series out of Konami’s Australia division, All Aboard™ is arriving to the show with two additional, never-before-seen base games, as well as custom merchandising options from overhead sign packages to animated LED chairback displays. Konami also brings a recognizable series from its consumer video game division into the casino space, with the world’s first Silent Hill slot games: Silent Hill: Escape™ and Silent Hill: Return™.
“The 2020 Indian Gaming Show is a landmark event in the launch of DIMENSION 49J. From the cabinet’s custom merchandising options, to its rich content library, DIMENSION 49J uniquely demands attention,” said Jingoli. “Konami is incredibly excited for the level of entertainment and quality it delivers, both for players and properties.”
One of the industry’s newest oversized cabinets is also arriving to NIGA with custom merchandising options, including branded pod fillers and LED sign packages. Available now across North America, Opus Dual expands upon the demonstrated success of Opus; showcasing dual-screen content across stacked 43-inch displays in lieu of a 65-inch single screen. Opus Dual features an original linked progressive series called Repeat Fever, with a Stay & Spin™ mechanic that offers exciting retrigger opportunities for players.
Konami’s award-winning KX 43 and Opus cabinets are returning to NIGA 2020, backed by an array of 4K UHD game content. An expansive offering of integrated progressive games is included, spanning Diamond Trails™, Majestic Moon Triple Sparkle™, Treasure Lounge™, and more. Several series also showcase animated LED sign display options, for optimized visual attraction and impact.
“The depth of entertainment available for KX 43 and Opus is a true demonstration of our ongoing commitment to quality and creativity,” said Jingoli. “Original Konami features like Strike Zone, Stay & Spin, and the Sparkle Feature are all represented in new ways, in addition to entirely new primary play mechanics like those found in Treasure Lounge, which branches away from traditional spinning reels.”
Konami’s SYNKROS casino management system is operating live at NIGA 2020 for guests to explore firsthand. SynkVision™ biometric player tracking is among the latest key highlights. This award-winning player tracking solution uses facial recognition to identify, rate, and reward all players. This technology gives operators the ability to truly see, understand, rate, and reward all “carded” and “uncarded” play activity for the first time. Guests can also discover Konami’s comprehensive Title 31/Anti-Money Laundering (AML) system, SYNK31™.
SYNK31 provides true case management by giving administrators the ability to compile all reporting, time stamped notes, file documents, screenshots, photos, videos, and emails associated with a particular patron or incident in one spot. Permissioned users can gather, track, review, and complete all AML requirements—including Multiple Transaction Log (MTL), Negotiable Instrument Log (NIL), Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR), Currency Transaction Reporting (CTR), Know Your Customer (KYC), and more—while leveraging SYNKROS’ industry-leading data architecture to automatically capture and compile all necessary AML information with robust, near real-time results.
