Konami Gaming revealed at G2E that its SYNKROS casino management system has been selected by Desert Diamond Casino—West Valley, Arizona's newest casino. Desert Diamond Casino—West Valley is owned and operated by the Tohono O'odham Gaming Enterprise, and is slated to open later this year with Konami's SYNKROS as its central gaming enterprise management suite. Situated on 54 acres near Glendale, the interim facility will feature 1,050 gaming devices.

"As construction continues to take shape at the property site, the technology and marketing tools we have available through SYNKROS will allow us the flexibility and control to empower West Valley for long‐term success," said Don Ayers, director of slots at Desert Diamond Casinos & Entertainment in a prepared statement. "It's just the beginning, but with SYNKROS at the core we have access to a number of important industry‐leading technology features down the road, like SYNKiosk and advanced incentives bonusing."

West Valley is set to launch SYNKiosk's self‐service enrollment stations, thereby allowing patrons to create and/or reprint a valid player loyalty card in less than 60 seconds. The new resort also plans to introduce floor‐wide community bonusing with SYNKROS' popular SuperSeries system‐delivered game themes such as Tomb Treader and Mustang Mayhem.

"Desert Diamond maintains a strong reputation for providing world‐class gaming entertainment, and Konami is pleased to work alongside their organization to ensure this new construction is empowered by the latest systems technology through each stage of its business growth," said Scott Richards, director, systems sales at Konami. "In addition, we look forward to giving West Valley casino guests the benefit of the latest system‐delivered conveniences and promotions to make each visit fun and relaxing."

West Valley is Desert Diamond's fourth Arizona casino property, with the others located in Tucson, Sahuarita and Why.
