Sightline Payments and Konami Gaming announced Friday a new partnership to deliver cashless gaming solutions through Sightline’s Play+ digital payments technology and Konami’s SYNKROS casino management system.
This alliance will power the world’s most technologically advanced casino experience at Resort World Las Vegas, where patrons can pay for gaming and non-gaming activities onsite without using cash.
The two companies’ complementary technologies enable Resorts World Las Vegas guests to have a digital payments experience through the Resorts World Las Vegas mobile app that JOINGO by Sightline designed. Konami’s SYNKROS allows players to use a digital login at slots and table games, and use their cashless wallet, which can be funded through Sightline’s Play+ solution.
In an official press release, Sightline Co-CEO Joe Pappano spoke about this new alliance and said: "Our industry must modernize its payments infrastructure to keep up with consumer preferences, and this partnership offers patrons the same seamless digital payments convenience they enjoy across most retail and hospitality verticals. The ecosystem that we are bringing to life at Resorts World Las Vegas with Konami and our other partners there is showcasing a level of collaboration the industry has not seen before and will serve as a hallmark for other operators adopting cashless technology."
Tom Jingoli, Executive VP and COO at Konami Gaming, Inc, added: "SYNKROS continually powers leading-edge convenience and integration to guest touchpoints throughout the resort, and all of it is taken to a new level in partnership with Sightline. Through the success of this launch, guests can enjoy the complete benefit of quick, seamless rewards and cashless wagering."
Both Sightline and Konami will be exhibiting at Global Gaming Expo 2021 in Las Vegas from October 4-7, at booth 4353 and 1256, respectively.
