Las Vegas, NV — April 9, 2014
Konami Gaming, Inc., a global leader in casino gaming and systems, today announced that its award winning management system, SYNKROS™ was selected by the Oneida Indian Nation and has been installed along with 120 new Konami Class III games at Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, NY. “Turning Stone is a world-class resort which has been growing for 20 years. Today, a comprehensive gaming enterprise management system like SYNKROS can help the management team synchronize all aspects of their expanding business,” explained Steve Sutherland, chief operating officer and executive vice president at Konami.
Sutherland added, “Turning Stone Resort Casino now offers four hotels, two spas, five golf courses, conference and meeting space, an event center, 19 restaurants, and more than 125,000-square-feet of Vegas style gaming. Konami and Turning Stone are an ideal fit because SYNKROS was designed to manage a resort casino operation this large, and a set of offerings this varied.”
“Turning Stone attracts 4.5 million visitors each year, and we are committed to offering the best products and the best service to our guests. The SYNKROS system from Konami provides us with tools that will help us to manage all aspects of our business in real time, so that we can continue to surprise and delight our guests with amazing experiences while contributing sustained revenues to the Oneida Nation and surrounding communities,” commented Guy Renzi, vice president of gaming operations at Turning Stone Resort Casino. “We needed a system that could manage the gaming and non-gaming aspects of our business seamlessly. We were impressed with SYNKROS’ reliability, its single code base, and the marketing horsepower that it offered to our management team.”
Turning Stone, located in the heart of Upstate New York, recently celebrated its 20th anniversary. The resort offers world-class golf, gaming, entertainment, dining, spas and accommodations. Since opening in 1993, Turning Stone has evolved into a destination resort and one of the top five tourist destinations in New York State, hosting more than 4.5 million guests a year.
“Konami’s games are known for their reliable performance, so we are excited to be updating our floor with 120 new video and stepper machines,” explained Renzi. “We always strive to treat our guests with the very best and we know they will enjoy playing games like China Shores, Dragon’s Law and Solstice Celebration on Konami’s Podium cabinet.”
