A casino property in Iowa and two in Australia have selected game management systems from Konami Gaming, a leading designer and manufacturer of slot machines and casino management systems for the global gaming market.
RC Casino LLC, the owner of Rhythm City Casino in Davenport Casino, has chosen Konami’s SYNKROS to help manage the property’s gaming floor. Located in the heart of the Quad Cities, Rhythm City Casino is one of the first riverboat casinos with over 850 games and 14 tables within a 30,000? square?foot casino. RC Casino LLC purchased the Rhythm City Casino from Isle of Capri and has chosen to install the SYNKROS system in the current, temporary location and ultimately the permanent location, which is slated to be complete in May 2015.
“Konami's SYNKROS has provided us with a reliable and flexible management system at both of our current properties, and we expect the same for our newest property, Rhythm City Casino,” said Joe Massa, chief operating officer at RC Casino/ Kehl Management in a prepared statement. “SYNKROS will provide us with the ability to run targeted offers and reward loyal customers who enjoy gambling, socializing and dining at Rhythm City Casino.”
Meanwhile, Konami Australia completed the simultaneous installation of its gaming enterprise management system at two of Echo Entertainment Group’s premier Queensland venues—Jupiters Hotel & Casino and Treasury Casino & Hotel.
“With the installation of KONAMI’s system at the Jupiters and Treasury casinos in Queensland, Echo Entertainment has enhanced its ability to manage its portfolio of properties and created value for its customers that extends beyond each individual venue,” said Jay Bertsch, senior manager, business development at Konami Australia. “Echo Entertainment also operates the Star in New South Wales and has been a leader in the Australian gaming industry for years. We are excited to extend our partnership in order to help them enhance what are already world-class customer experiences at their Jupiters and Treasury venues.”
The Jupiters Hotel & Casino is located on the Gold Coast in Queensland and has been in operation for over 25 years. The venue is home to seven restaurants, eight bars, nearly 600 rooms including suites, a variety of live entertainment, one of the largest convention centers in Australia, and a state-of-the art gaming floor with more than 1,500 machines and 90 table games.
The Treasury Casino & Hotel is located in the heart of Brisbane and has been in operation for nearly 20 years. This historical venue provides six restaurants, five bars, 128 rooms, and a three-story gaming experience in one of Australia’s grandest heritage buildings. The Treasury offers more than 1,400 machines and 100 tables.
“Our two Queensland venues have been in business for nearly 50 years combined and we are thrilled to now have KONAMI’s management system because it provides us with a powerful set of tools to help us bring our customers the best entertainment experience possible,” said Kel Telford, chief information officer at Echo Entertainment Group. “The installation of KONAMI’s system has allowed us to provide our customers with a new diverse set of gaming machines enhanced by the offering of TITO functionality, By installing KONAMI’s system at Jupiters and Treasury, we are able to launch gaming machines across multiple protocols, truly enhancing the experience of the player and providing machines that no one in Queensland has seen before.”
