A trio of products from leading designer and manufacturer Konami have been awarded the Casino Journal Annual Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Technology products.


Konami Gaming, Inc. has won triple trophy honors in the Casino Journal Annual Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Technology Awards for three of its key products.

The company’s Beat Square skill-based game, SYNKROS Dashboards business intelligence suite, and SYNKROS Offers Management player loyalty rewards tool were all named in the prestigious Top 20 for the year.

“Since the earliest days of the company, Konami has been driven by a focus on innovative R&D, which is strongly reflected in this year’s Top 20 awards program and the leading edge products we continually bring to casinos around the globe,” said Steve Walther, senior director, marketing & product management at Konami. “Our games and systems development teams are actively exploring the most promising and practically applicable opportunities to deliver new and impactful solutions for our customers.”

The SYNKROS® casino management system, which has been named in the Top 20 previously for products like True-Time Tournaments™ and SYNKiosk™., now sees its latest enhancement join Konami’s growing list of award-winning systems technology with the addition of SYNKROS Dashboards™ and SYNKROS Offers Management™.

“SYNKROS Dashboards is a powerful, intuitive business intelligence suite that leverages the vast amount of data available through SYNKROS to give operators actionable insights across their business. It’s incredibly easy to navigate, which grants operators the independence to test, explore, and interact with their data anytime they need,” said Walther. “SYNKROS customers are also in control of their player loyalty awards with SYNKROS Offers Management and its ability to provide a lifecycle of incentives through targeting, tracking, and reporting—helping maximize reinvestment. These latest advancements carry a positive impact for our customers and the future of systems technology.”

This year’s awards also saw the company’s skill-based game, Beat Square™., honoured in the annual list which the company claims is pushing the boundaries of industry products.

“Backed by a vast legacy in consumer arcade and video game entertainment, Konami is boldly pioneering next generation gaming product and empowering casino operators to reach expanding player demographics through new releases including Beat Square,” Steve Walther said. “Beat Square has an exciting skill-based experience unlike anything else ever brought to market. It combines fun rhythmic game play, shared social interaction, big-win competitive leaderboards, and original for-wager mathematics to give players an incredibly engaging and rewarding experience while also providing properties a designated return.”

Konami’s three winning products will all be up for consideration in the Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Attendee Choice Awards, to be announced at a later date.
