Synkros: SynkConnect/True Time Windowing


Synkros: SynkConnect/True Time Windowing

Konami Gaming, Inc. is focused on enhancing player convenience, in-game marketing and branded loyalty program touchpoints during this year’s G2E. Its award-winning Synkros casino management system is introducing a number of leading advancements to empower casino operators with the latest systems tools to benefit their business and their customers.

SynkConnect is a new “cardless” player tracking convenience set for its G2E debut this fall. This touchless, multi-channel solution empowers casino players with a variety of secure methods to augment or replace a traditional player loyalty card at the EGM, including their personal mobile device, fobs, a room key and more.

SynkConnect helps open up more opportunities for players to connect and engage with property loyalty programs by combing Near Field Communication (NFC) through a card reader. For mobile cardless connection, players simply tap a personal smartphone device at the zone of the card reader bezel and the card reader changes color to indicate blue for inactive/uncarded connection, green for successful active connection, or red for misread/failed connection.

SynkConnect helps transform how casino players connect and engage with the casino’s loyalty program using the technology conveniences already interlaced through their daily life and the guest experience. With more new ways for players to connect, SynkConnect helps eliminate barriers caused by dependence on traditional loyalty cards and increase “carded” play activity through a number of convenient methods of authentication.

This year, Konami’s next-generation True-Time Windowing technology will also be showcased live at G2E with portrait and HD screen compatibility, as well as web services that allow operators to bring any HTML-based site or program to video slot screens for all-new marketing possibilities and player conveniences. A key element of Konami’s Synkros, True-Time Windowing creates a full canvas of possibilities to deploy an array of incentives, bonuses, account functions, notifications, streaming video, marketing promotions, custom branding and more, directly onto the screen of most any video slot without interrupting game play. These new features and more will be showcased at the Konami booth during G2E 2018.
