Gaming professionals and executives will encounter leading-edge solutions to reach, engage, understand, monitor and reward casino guests in the Synkros area of Konami Gaming, Inc.’s 2019 G2E display. The award-winning casino systems developer is presenting a top lineup of technology, including its SYNK Vision facial recognition, all-in-one Title 31 AML system SYNK31, and SynkConnect player mobile app.

SYNK Vision is a biometric player tracking solution that uses facial recognition to identify, rate and reward all players, regardless whether they are members of the established player loyalty program. It tracks players automatically based on their unique facial characteristics rather than requiring them to manually sign up or use a player’s tracking card.

When players with an existing account sit down at a slot machine or table game, SYNK Vision recognizes them and displays their name with a welcome message without any manual input. Or if the player has not registered a loyalty account, his or her biometric identity is assigned a personal anonymous account for ongoing engagement and tracking. This enables casino operators to truly see, analyze, rate and reward all “carded” and “uncarded” play activity on their floor for the first time.

Konami’s new SYNK31 is a comprehensive Title 31 Anti-Money Laundering (AML) system that allows permissioned Synkros administrators to gather, track, review and complete all AML requirements, including Multiple Transaction Log (MTL), Negotiable Instrument Log (NIL), Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR), Currency Transaction Reporting (CTR), Know Your Customer (KYC) and more. It supports automated delivery of IRS forms, for maximum ease and efficiency.

In addition, SYNK 31 provides true case management, empowering administrators to compile all reporting, time-stamped notes, files documents, screenshots, photos, videos, and emails associated with a particular patron or incident in one spot.

Award-winning Synkros mobile technology will also be showcased at this year’s event. SynkConnect player mobile application is a “cardless” player tracking solution that empowers players to log in to any equipped EGM through the app and enjoy all the tools to manage their loyalty account from anywhere. These advancements and more will be available for guests to experience at the Konami booth throughout G2E 2019.
