Tap and Connect

Product: SynkConnect Manufacturer: Konami Gaming

Konami Gaming’s award-winning Synkros casino management system has incorporated SynkConnect, a new “cardless” player tracking convenience. This touch-less, 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 using 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.
