Sightline teams with Konami for cashless experience

US payment expert Sightline Payments has announced a partnership with gaming machine manufacturer Konami Gaming, Inc to deliver cashless gaming solutions through Sightline’s Play+ digital payments technology and Konami’s SYNKROS casino management system.

The companies have described the partnership as ‘helping to power what is being billed as the world’s most technologically advanced casino experience’ at Resorts World Las Vegas, where patrons can pay for gaming and nongaming activities onsite without using cash.

Sightline and Konami claim that their complementary technologies enable Resorts World Las Vegas guests to have a seamless digital payments experience through the Resorts World Las Vegas mobile app which was designed by JOINGO by Sightline. Konami’s SYNKROS enables players to use a digital login at slots and table games, and access their cashless wallet that they can fund through Sightline’s Play+ solution.

Sightline Co-CEO Joe Pappano commented: “Our industry must modernize its payments infrastructure to keep up with consumer preferences, and this partnership offers patrons the same seamless digital payments convenience they enjoy across most retail and hospitality verticals.

“The ecosystem that we are bringing to life at Resorts World Las Vegas with Konami and our other partners there is showcasing a level of collaboration the industry has not seen before and will serve as a hallmark for other operators adopting cashless technology.”

Tom Jingoli, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Konami Gaming, Inc, added: “SYNKROS continually powers leading-edge convenience and integration to guest touchpoints throughout the resort, and all of it is taken to a new level in partnership with Sightline.

“Through the success of this launch, guests can enjoy the complete benefit of quick, seamless rewards and cashless wagering.”

Both Sightline and Konami will be exhibiting at Global Gaming Expo 2021 in Las Vegas from 4-7 October.
