Scientific Games Boosts Customer Roster, Adds Kansas Crossing Casino + Hotel with Complete Casino Systems Deal
LAS VEGAS, Aug. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ —Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) (“Scientific Games” or the “Company”) will provide a full suite of casino-management systems solutions to the new Kansas Crossing Casino + Hotel scheduled to open in early 2017 in Pittsburg, Kansas.
Kansas Crossing Casino + Hotel selected Scientific Games, the global market leader in gaming systems solutions, to deliver entertainment and rewards, and drive operating efficiencies across its new casino floor – anchored by the Company’s powerful, secure, and reliable SDS™ slot-management system and CMP player-tracking system.
Derik Mooberry, Scientific Games Group Chief Executive of Gaming, said, “Scientific Games’ industry-leading portfolio of systems solutions is transforming casino operations and the player experience the world over. We are thrilled to partner with Kansas Crossing and its management team to develop an engaged and loyal player base in this emerging market.”
When the new casino opens, its modern, high-speed and fully networked gaming floor will utilize these Scientific Games products:
iVIEW Display Manager (“DM”) on-device messaging technology to excite and engage players across the casino floor. iVIEW DM will power touch-enabled in-game communications and bonuses on all of the casino’s 630 slot machines – without interrupting slot play.
Servizio mobile service solutions suite of intelligent, rule-driven applications, automating the traditional dispatch system for jackpot processing, player registration, host functions, slot maintenance, and more.
BOSS (“Beverage Ordering Service System”) touchscreen, self-service drink-ordering feature that works through iVIEW DM.
Doug Fisher, General Manager of Kansas Crossing Casino + Hotel, said, “The most important consideration for us when choosing a casino systems provider was finding a partner with robust player-bonusing solutions at the point of play. We want our casino floor to provide a fun, high energy, and anticipatory experience for our patrons, and no supplier can enable that like Scientific Games can with its iVIEW DM on-device technology paired with its Elite Bonusing Suite to provide mystery-style progressive jackpots, instant tournaments, and the array of customizable bonusing tools.”
The $80 million Kansas Crossing Casino + Hotel is under construction near Pittsburg in Crawford County. The casino resort will feature 630 slot machines, 16 gaming tables, poker, a restaurant, live entertainment venue, and a 120-room hotel.
