Konami To Power Virgin Voyages Gaming Ops With Synkros

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

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

Konami Holdings Corporation’s Las Vegas subsidiary, which designs and produces 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 device for entertainment, interaction and comfort for all on-board, together with its newest titles via the KX 43 cabinet, Synkros’ integrated marketing capability and incentive engine aims to offer a high level of experience across the board.

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

“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 new agreement follows a pair of agreements that the company entered into last month, with Red Lake Gaming choosing the Synkros solution to offer casino device technology across its portfolio of Seven Clans Casinos, with the roll-out exceeding 1,500 slots and ten live table games.

This was followed by Star Entertainment extending a long-standing alliance with Konami to bring systems development across Sydney Brisbane and the Gold Coast to its integrated resort locations.

Tom Jingoli, Konami Gaming’s Executive Vice President & Chief Commercial Officer said of the new 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.”
