Konami Gaming leverages Xailient tech to launch SYNK Vision


Konami Gaming has strengthened its SYNKROS casino management system as the firm joined forces with AI technology provider Xailient to launch SYNK Vision.

In this strategic partnership, the product will benefit from the latter’s advanced AI facial recognition edge device capabilities to offer known player facial recognition login convenience features.

Tom Soukup, Senior Vice President & Chief Systems Product Officer at Konami Gaming, commented: “Konami Gaming is dedicated to shaping the future of the casino industry by delivering innovative and excellence-driven technology to our operator customers, through solutions like SYNK Vision.

“Through this partnership with Xailient, SYNK Vision is another step closer toward proving enhanced operational efficiency and enhancing the guest experience, while prioritising harm minimization and responsible gaming.”

Aiming to ‘enhance the harm minimization landscape’, the product will allow Konami-partnered casinos to offer cardless logins to anonymously track players and provide them with bonus features, protecting the player’s privacy. 

Additionally, SYNK Vision incorporates ‘state-of-the-art’ AI algorithms to identify and address potential harmful behaviours on the gaming floor by tracking both known and anonymous players.

Joe Mayer, Systems Sales and Operations Manager – APAC at Konami Gaming’s Sydney-based sister company Konami Australia, stated: “We are thrilled to announce the arrival of SYNK Vision in the market, where we are poised to embrace the evolving regulatory landscape, ensuring that every player’s excitement in the casino is not just maintained but heightened. 

“With SYNK Vision, we are redefining the future of gaming in the Asia-Pacific region, strongly emphasising secure identity management to guarantee a safe and enjoyable gaming experience for all.”

Furthermore, the product will leverage ‘cutting-edge’ technology that enables seamless anti-money laundering tracking of all players using secure identity management. This is designed to help operator partners ensure regulatory compliance and are safeguarded against fraudulent activities. 

“At Xailient, we are passionate about leveraging AI to create impactful solutions,” added Lars Oleson, CEO at Xailient.

“Our collaboration with Konami Gaming brings forth SYNK Vision, which securely and efficiently improves the customer experience and enhances casino responsibility measures. This partnership marks a significant step forward in transforming the industry.”
