US gaming supplier International Game Technology (IGT) has signed an agreement to provide its casino management systems and games to the SouthWind Braman and SouthWind Kanza casinos in Oklahoma.

The deal with Kaw Gaming Inc, of the Kaw Nation, followed a competitive bidding process, with IGT securing the systems business for the new SouthWind Braman and SouthWind Kanza casino properties.

Kaw Gaming selected IGT Advantage systems featuring Xtra Credit and Point Play applications for its casinos, to provide players with enhanced bonusing capabilities in addition to coordinated loyalty card benefits between the two properties.

In addition to providing systems at both properties, IGT will maintain a leading floor share of games at both casinos as part of the agreement.

"IGT's industry-leading R&D investment provides our customers with best-in-class content and the most sophisticated systems capabilities available,” said Nick Khin, IGT senior vice president of sales, North America Gaming & Interactive. “We're very pleased to have presented the winning bid for systems at SouthWind casinos, and to extend our relationship with Kaw Nation by providing the leading floor share of games across two properties.”

Pam Shaw, Kaw Nation general manager, added: "We evaluated systems solutions from different manufacturers, and we believe that IGT offers the systems and games that will best drive our ROI and increase player engagement and excitement.

“IGT innovation provides our players with great entertainment combined with meaningful incentives and promotions to enhance their gaming experiences.”
