While the newest property on the Strip, Resorts World Las Vegas, is clearly one of the most attractive, compelling and unique casino, it’s what lies under the surface that is really exciting for casino operators. Resorts World has opened with a full suite of technology to enable cashless transactions, touchless contact points and a compelling way to use the loyalty program. We’re joined by Scott Sibella, President, Resorts World Las Vegas, Rick Hutchins, the SVP Casino Operations, Resorts World Las Vegas and Tom Jingoli, EVP & COO, Konami Gaming to talk about how the technology is designed to perform and how the Konami Synkros system is the lynchpin enabling various vendors to offer ways to set up a digital wallet, buy in on slots or table games with a simple phone app and a way for the casino to stay in touch with its customers 24/7. The three executives joined GGB Publisher Roger Gros via Zoom from their offices in Las Vegas in July.

Roger Gros is publisher of Global Gaming Business, the industry's leading gaming trade publication, and all its related publications. Prior to joining Global Gaming Business, Gros was president of Inlet Communications, an independent consulting firm. He was vice president of Casino Journal Publishing Group from 1984-2000, and held virtually every editorial title during his tenure. Gros was editor of Casino Journal, the National Gaming Summary and the Atlantic City Insider, and was the founding editor of Casino Player magazine. He was a co-founder of the American Gaming Summit and the Southern Gaming Summit conferences and trade shows. He is the author of the best-selling book, How to Win at Casino Gambling (Carlton Books, 1995), now in its fourth edition. Gros was named "Businessman of the Year" for 1998 by the Greater Atlantic City Chamber of Commerce, and received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Gaming Association in 2012.
