US – Konami to uncover two premium game releases at NIGA 2015By Phil - 9 March 2015
Konami Gaming is set to unveil two never-before-seen premium game releases to more than 6,000 tribal leaders and casino executives at this year’s NIGA Indian Gaming Show in San Diego on March 30 to April 2, 2015.
In addition, Konami will showcase one of the industry’s latest advances in customer convenience called SYNKiosk, which empowers casino players with self-serve access to loyalty program kiosk functions across multiple diverse platforms using real-time updates delivered by its SYNKROS casino management system. Konami booth 1833 will also feature the company’s recently announced Neo Contra themed video slots, progressives for Podium Monument like Hammer Festival and Engine Blaze, and more leading-edge games looking to carry strong momentum for tribal casino properties across the US.
“NIGA is one of the most important gaming events we attend and this year for the 30th anniversary, we’ll be giving our Indian Gaming customers first-access to a new installment of premium titles that no one else has seen before. Suffice it to say, these games continue to bring legend to life for gamers and slot players alike,” said Matt Reback, vice president, marketing at Konami. “Not to mention, guests at NIGA 2015 will be at the controls of our Neo Contra themed slots, displayed with Konami’s unique Symphonik 3D Sound audio technology and custom single-toppers.”
Konami’s Neo Contra debut game themes Mighty Warrior and Supreme Samurai will both be shown at booth 1833, featured on a premium Podium cabinet, with the sleek Symphonik 3D Sound output hardware fixed just above the cabinet’s extended top box and embedded into the game software for streamlined delivery of high-impact audio quality. In addition, guests at NIGA 2015 will be the first in the industry to experience all three debut game releases for Konami’s new ROKU REELS series. Each of the new six-reel ROKU REELS games is an original math title: Sparkling Riches, Pretty Devil, and Parisian Pleasures.
“Each of our three ROKU REELS debut titles presents a unique play experience, so guests at NIGA have the advantage of seeing each game side-by-side and can get a taste for the breadth and variety this new series has to offer,” said Mr. Reback. “We’ll also have our new stand-alone progressive games for Podium Monument and high-performing highlights for our extra-large Goliath cabinet ….Overall, Konami’s 2015 booth really exemplifies our product variety and flexibility to empower operators to get most from their casino floor.”
Konami’s NIGA exhibit will also include a hands-on demonstration environment for its SYNKROS casino management system, which continues to see record expansion to new locations and gaming jurisdictions each year. Leading-edge updates such as SYNKiosk will take center stage, as SYNKROS continues to present value-oriented solutions to help operators compete for customer loyalty and spend.
“SYNKiosk is truly a must-see. Using real-time integrated updates through SYNKROS, it’s able to launch loyalty program kiosk menus directly onto mobile devices, traditional kiosks, and even the primary screen of any video slot machine. Nothing like this has been done before and as soon as people see it in action, its vast implications for our industry are unmistakable,” Mr. Reback said.
