Konami to power Grand Sierra Resort and Sahara Las Vegas’ casino systems

Meruelo Gaming has recruited the services of Konami Gaming to power the casino systems technology at its Grand Sierra Resort and Sahara Las Vegas facilities.

As a result, players will enjoy connected, single card rewards across both locations, with Sahara to become the first Las Vegas Strip resort to go live with Synkros and Konami’s Konetic Employee App, driving catered rewards and convenience to guests across its 60,000 square foot gaming floor, dining options and three hotel towers.

“Grand Sierra Resort and Sahara Las Vegas are iconic Nevada resort destinations that we’re thrilled to work alongside in driving new technology to the space, as is the case with the upcoming Konetic mobile launch,” noted Tom Jingoli, executive vice president and chief operating officer at Konami Gaming

“Both resorts have an energy, enthusiasm, and earned popular regard that Konami is proud to share in supporting.

“We believe Synkros is the very best solution available. Konami’s commitment to investing the time and attention to this business made our choice easy. The resorts are excited to move forward with this great new system and partnership.”

Via the impending debut of Synkros, Grand Sierra Resort and Sahara Las Vegas will utilise the same card system for the first time, granting seamless loyalty rewards for members across both destinations. 

Team members are also slated to benefit from the launch of the systems’ Konetic Employee App, with a slot dispatch module that empowers casino floor personnel to receive, manage, and respond to service calls through a secure mobile app. 

“Synkros was selected to power Grand Sierra Resort and Sahara Las Vegas due to Konami’s reputation for high system reliability, demonstrated desire for partnership, and clear commitment to helping our business succeed,” added Christopher Abraham, senior vice president of marketing at Meruelo Gaming

“Working with Konami, our world-class gaming resorts have the assurance of a technology partner that truly understands our business and how each casino operates uniquely therein. Those details make a difference to us and our players.”
