Star Entertainment, Konami Renew Partnership

Australian casino operator Star Entertainment Group and Las Vegas-based Konami Gaming have jointly announced the continuation of a longstanding partnership to bring Konami systems technologies to Star’s integrated resorts in Sydney, Brisbane and the Australian Gold Coast.

For more than a decade, Star has leveraged Konami’s award-winning Synkros casino management system to deliver dependable performance and fresh engagement opportunities throughout its portfolio.

With the agreement, Star will introduce a number of technologies, from optimized rewards to cashless wagering. The Star has launched Money Klip cashless wagering for faster, more secure transactions. It allows players to load secure funds to their account electronically, rather than feeding bills or TITO tickets into each machine.

Additionally, destinations across Star’s portfolio will drive greater player loyalty rewards with optimal convenience, accessibility, and personalization through Synkros Offers Management.
