South Korea – Spielo completes system install at Kangwon LandBy Phil - 19 June 2013
Spielo International has completed the install of its Galaxis casino systems solutions on all 960 slots at Kangwon Land, South Korea’s largest casino.
Among the modules selected was Galaxis Jackpots, which is used to centrally manage 153 different levels of progressive and mystery jackpots on 18 jackpot links, with 80 stand-alone jackpots coming to fruition.
Chiang Lai Fatt, Spielo International’s Asia Pacific General Manager, said: “In many cases, customers use a management system, but still need an external controller to run the jackpot. Our system can manage all jackpot activity, which in the end simplifies the IT requirement and saves the customer money. This project also highlighted our system’s reliability in handling high levels of player traffic: at Kangwon Land there are more than 150,000 system transactions every hour.”
Kangwon Land is the most successful casino in South Korea and is the only one that allows Koreans to play. This made the slot system migration a challenge, as most of the slots are being played at any given time.
Ju Haejung, Senior Manager, System Management Department at Kangwon Land, said: “We are extremely happy and satisfied with Spielo International, their casino systems products, and also all of their staff that we dealt with. The whole migration was so smooth that it hardly affected our daily business. We would like to thank Spielo International for their efforts on this project.”
A key strength of the Galaxis casino system portfolio is that it offers robust, market-tested, modular solutions and customers can choose only the modules they need. The company also customised certain elements of Galaxis for Kangwon Land, such as providing Korean language support for the system.
Products chosen by Kangwon Land for installation at their facility include the following Galaxis modules: Jackpots, Bonusing, Slots, Cashless, Marketing, Connect and Multimedia.
