Konami Gaming has been selected by Virgin Voyages to provide its Synkros casino management system for its founding fleet of luxury cruise liners. 

Virgin Voyages has announced plans to launch four ships, leading with the Scarlet Lady which is scheduled to set sail in April 2020, with Synkros to power gaming operations for its first three cruise ships.

The Las Vegas subsidiary of Konami Holdings Corporation, which designs and manufactures slot machines and casino management systems, stresses that “Synkros’ agile architecture, real-time open integrations and dependable performance is ideally suited for operating in the open seas”.

Delivering the system, combined with its newest titles via the KX 43 cabinet for the entertainment, engagement and convenience for all on-board, Synkros’ combined marketing capabilities and bonusing engine strives to deliver an elevated experience throughout.

“Virgin Voyages is focused on delivering irresistible vacations that are uniquely transformational and rejuvenating for sailors,” said Frank Weber, senior vice president of hotel operations for Virgin Voyages.

“Our Scarlet Lady is Adult-By-Design, which means that we are building a sanctuary at sea for the 18+ traveller, complete with epic experiences for our Sailors to enjoy.” 

This latest agreement follows a pair of partnerships entered by the firm last month, with Red Lake Gaming selecting the Synkros solution to deliver casino systems technology across its range of Seven Clans Casinos, with the roll-out reaching 1,500 slots and ten live table games.

This was followed by Star Entertainment deepening a long standing partnership with Konami to bring systems technology to its integrated resort locations across Sydney, Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

Tom Jingoli, executive vice president & chief commercial officer at Konami Gaming, said of the latest link-up: “Virgin Voyages’ leading-edge approach showcases the ‘Virgin style’ of service, sophistication, and surprise in incredible ways. Konami is committed to delivering top casino systems technology to support Virgin Voyages casino operation.”
