LAS VEGAS – September 29, 2011 –
Konami Gaming, Inc. announced today that it has signed an agreement with Eagle Mountain Casino in Porterville, California, to replace its current casino management system with the Konami Casino Management System (KCMS). Eagle Mountain Casino selected KCMS to manage its slot machine and table games accounting, patron tracking, target marketing campaigns and analytical reporting. The property plans to implement KCMS across all of its 1,350 slot machines and table games in December 2011.
Tom Stewart, General Manager of Eagle Mountain Casino, said, "When we were faced with the option to either upgrade our current system or switch to KCMS, our decision was relatively straightforward. After carefully reviewing its capabilities, we determined that KCMS will allow us to better understand the detailed multi-game performance of our machines and to market to our customers more effectively than ever before."
"Furthermore", continued Mr. Stewart, "we will also be the first casino in California to roll out KONAMI's innovative LotABucks progressive jackpot bonus game to every machine on the floor."
Tom Soukup, Vice President of Systems Research and Development at Konami Gaming, Inc. added, "The random LotABucks game gives valued loyalty club members the chance to win small prizes or a large progressive reward anytime they play at any machine within the casino. LotABucks will provide yet another unique reason for guests to want to play at Eagle Mountain Casino."
KCMS is an industry-leading casino management system with an increasing number of installations spanning America, Canada, Australia as well as other international regions. KCMS is best known for its advanced capabilities, such as its real-time TCP/IP-based technology, multi-channel in-machine streaming video, powerful rules-based Bonusing engine, true multigame, multi-denomination analytics at both the device and patron level, and documented high availability. These features all combine to allow operators to effectively manage and analyze their gaming operations, implement innovative marketing campaigns, and drive their business forward.
Steve Sutherland, Chief Operating Officer of Konami Gaming, Inc., commented, "We are very pleased to be embarking upon a new technology partnership with one of California's leading casinos. Not only has Eagle Mountain Casino selected KCMS, but they will also be adding 120 new KONAMI slot machines to their floor, including a selection of our latest Podium, Advantage 5 and Advantage Revolution games."
