Tribal gaming operator the Oneida Indian Nation is to deploy a suite of system products and devices from Scientific Games across its gaming properties and assets in the New York State.

The new agreement will see Scientific Games roll out casino management solutions at the tribe's flagship venue Turning Stone Resort Casino in upstate New York, replacing a competitor's systems.

The agreement also covers the Oneida Nation's other gaming properties, the Yellow Brick Road and Point Place casinos, as well as the tribe's gaming machines hosted in SavOn convenience stores.

In total, Scientific Games' casino management systems will be used to oversee all 2,921 slot machines operated by the tribe in upstate New York.

Among the systems to be rolled out for the Oneida Indian Nation are the SDS slot management system, TableView table management system and CMP player-tracking system, allowing each venue to monitor and evaluate player activity.

These will be supported by marketing solutions such as the Elite Bonusing Suite, as well as the supplier's iVIEW 4 and iVIEW Display Manager, offering on-device messaging solutions.

"We pride ourselves on offering a world-class gaming experience at Turning Stone, and all of our properties, and likewise believe we should have the best and most innovative systems technology available in the casino industry," Oneida Nation Representative and Nation Enterprises CEO Ray Halbritter said. "The guest experience offered by Scientific Games is industry-leading, which was a key factor in our decision to partner with them."

Scientific Games senior vice president of system products Cath Burns added: "Scientific Games is delighted to partner with Turning Stone and all Oneida Nation Enterprise's gaming properties, organizations that are as dedicated as we are to providing guests with a first-class gaming experience.

"We are committed to providing Turning Stone and its affiliated properties the cutting-edge products and solutions that will allow them to set a new standard in player engagement and satisfaction."
