It was about two months ago that Sky River Casino in Elk Grove, Sacramento opened its doors to the public. Now, the casino together with Konami Gaming and Everi Holdings announced the launch of cashless options combining Everi's digital CashClub Wallet with Konami’s SYNKROS casino management system, as the newly constructed destination takes its first steps in California.
Through the partnership, guests will gain access to digital, mobile, traditional, and contactless payment options across the destination’s 2,000 slot machines, 80 table games, and 12 dining experiences. Sky River Casino is owned by the Wilton Rancheria Tribe and managed by Boyd Gaming.
