Casino supplier Konami Gaming Inc has announced that its Synkros casino management system has been selected by Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd to equip the firm’s fleet.
“Through the upcoming year, Konami will launch its latest Synkros systems technology on a total of 18 ships operated by Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings under its three brands: Norwegian Cruise Line, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas Cruises,” Konami stated in a release issued on Tuesday.
The gaming operations of the global cruise firm include a total of 3,666 slot machines and 289 table games, stated the release.
Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings first selected Synkros in 2012 for two of its casino cruise ships.
“Through our systems partnership with Konami, we’re bringing our customers the newest tools and features that exemplify the highly personalised experience they enjoy throughout their journey with us,” Jim Abbas, senior vice president of casino operations at Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, said in a prepared statement.
“Konami is very pleased to continue supporting the diverse business needs of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings,” said Scott Richards, director of systems sales for Konami.
He added: “Our team has dedicated itself to preparation and efficiency as multisite conversions and new installations progress. We’ve seen strong momentum to date and look ahead to additional successes.”
One of the shareholders in Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings is Genting Hong Kong Ltd. The firm has been reducing its stake in Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings since 2013; it currently has a stake of around 11.2 percent, according to a June filing.
Genting Hong Kong – part of Malaysia-based Genting Group – is an operator of casino cruise ships and a joint venture casino operator in the Philippines.
Norwegian Cruise Line has operations around the globe, including Asia.
