Industry Recognizes Konami Gaming, Inc.'s True-Time Tournament™ with Innovative Gaming Technology Award

SYNKROS™ Tournament Module Selected for Its Innovative On-Demand Tournament Capabilities

Las Vegas, NV — April 23, 2013

Konami Gaming, Inc.'s True-Time Tournaments product was selected as a winner of a 2012 Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Technology Products award.

"We are very pleased to have been recognized by Casino Journal and the independent panel of operators who judged this year's submission," said Matt Reback, senior director of marketing at Konami Gaming, Inc. "SYNKROS represents the evolution of KCMS, and True-Time Tournaments is just one of the innovative new modules that we have added to the system in the past year. It is wonderful to receive industry recognition for our product, but the ultimate reward comes when our customers recognize how much our products help them to grow their revenues."

True-Time Tournaments is a system-delivered slot tournament product available with KONAMI's SYNKROS™. True-Time Tournaments allows casino operators to configure on-demand slot tournaments and includes a Tournament Director module designed to manage the operational functions of the tournament (i.e. monitoring players, leader board management, tournament start and end times). Player invitations to the tournaments are managed through the True-Time Bonusing Toolkit™ and are issued based on criteria defined by the casino, including but not limited to amount wagered, specific games, banks, or zones, day of the week, zip code, new card sign up, card tier status, group membership, or trip frequency.

Reback added, "KONAMI's SYNKROS management system is loaded with innovative marketing, analytics, and operational tools. This award is hopefully the first of many for SYNKROS because we are committed to building products that give our customers the tools they need to compete by generating revenues and creating operational efficiencies."
