Konami Secures Osage Contract

Slot and system manufacturer Konami Gaming announced that it has been awarded the contract to provide a casino management system to the Osage Nation of Oklahoma.

The company’s Konami Casino Management System, or KCMS, will link a total of 3,200 slot machines across seven Osage Nation casinos in Oklahoma to a real-time, single-card player tracking and accounting network. Installation of the system in the first property is slated for completion in early September, with all properties scheduled to go live on KCMS by early December.

“We are very pleased to be entering into this partnership with the Osage Nation,” said Jay Bertsch, system sales director for Konami. “We are thrilled with our success in the Oklahoma market and thankful for the wonderful customers we are able to partner with in this territory. By spring of 2010, there will be 17 total KCMS installations in Oklahoma.”

The Osage Nation also will be implementing Konami’s Patron 360 software suite across all seven properties. Patron 360 is a suite of marketing tools designed to increase the overall patron experience and provide the casino a configurable set of key performance indicators designed specifically to assess patron worth across all gaming and non-gaming amenities.
