Konami Showcases its Newest Premium Game Releases at Southern Gaming Summit 2015
Las Vegas, NV — May 5, 2015
Konami Gaming, Inc., a global leader in casino gaming and systems, brings its newest premium release titles to the 2015 Southern Gaming Summit (SGS) in Biloxi, MS, with the latest DUNGEONS & DRAGONS® games and award-winning Neo Contra™ machines. On May 5 – 7, 2015, thousands of casino gaming executives and professionals from across the country are given the opportunity to see and explore these and more exclusive Konami game releases and systems technology at booth number 704 at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum.
“Guests at this year’s Southern Gaming Summit are among the first in the world to see our latest DUNGEONS & DRAGONS games: Dwellers of the Dungeon Keep and Fortunes of the Forgotten Realms. Both offer a rich, fantasy experience with dungeon maze bonuses and monster battle features that build on the success of our debut release titles,” said Matt Reback, vice president, marketing at Konami. “We’re also pleased to present Rapid Revolver to audiences at SGS. Our Rapid Revolver games are unique because they combine Konami’s renowned video reel game play in the primary game screen with a vertical stack of six spinning mechanical reels in the tall-top box. We see Rapid Revolver delivering a diversity of entertainment and market reach that regional properties can really leverage, and the performance we’ve seen from units in the field suggests that patrons are enjoying the experience.”
During this year’s SGS, the Konami booth includes these and many more of the latest new slot products across Konami’s cabinet lineup—SeleXion™ multi-game, tall-top Podium Monument™, and more. In addition, Konami’s 2015 exhibit provides a hands-on demonstration environment for its SYNKROS™ casino management system, which continues to see record expansion to new properties and gaming jurisdictions each year. Konami’s award-winning SYNKiosk™ takes center stage at SGS as one of SYNKROS’ most competitive new tools for patron engagement and adoption.
“The release of SYNKiosk carries a lot of benefit for so many of the operators we’ve spoken with. Tightly coupled with SYNKROS, SYNKiosk is able to launch loyalty program kiosk menus directly onto mobile devices, traditional kiosks, and even the primary screen of any video slot machine. It’s changing the nature of how players connect and interact with their favorite casinos,” Reback said.
