US gaming supplier Scientific Games has won a contract to provide its casino systems solution to the new Kansas Crossing Casino and Hotel, which is currently under construction and expected to open next March.

Scientific Games was awarded the contract to provide an integrated suite of its systems solutions for the $80m casino, which will feature 630 slots and 16 table games, as wellas a poker and live entertainment room.

It is located in southeast Kansas near Pittsburg in Crawford County, close to the borders of Oklahoma, Missouri and Arkansas.

"Scientific Games' industry-leading portfolio of systems solutions is transforming casino operations and the player experience the world over," said Derik Mooberry, chief executive of gaming for Scientific Games. "We are thrilled to partner with Kansas Crossing and its management team to develop an engaged and loyal player base in this emerging market."

Scientific Games will provide its SDS slot-accounting system as the foundation for the integrated package, which will also include a player-tracking system for bonuses and promotions, and Live Floor View, which analyses slot-floor performance and player activity.

The supplier will also provide other solutions including TableView, iVIEW Display Manager, Elite Bonusing Suite, Power Progressives, Beverage Ordering and Service System, and Servizio.

Doug Fisher, general manager of Kansas Crossing Casino and Hotel, said: "The most important consideration for us when choosing a casino systems provider was finding a partner with robust player-bonusing solutions at the point of play.

"We want our casino floor to provide a fun, high energy, and anticipatory experience for our patrons, and no supplier can enable that like Scientific Games can with its iVIEW DM on-device technology paired with its Elite Bonusing Suite to provide mystery-style progressive jackpots, instant tournaments, and the array of customizable bonusing tools."

Shares in Scientific Games Corp. (Co. Data) (NASDAQ:SGMS) closed in New York Thursday down 0.78 per cent at $8.92 per share.
