Top new technology releases include its SYNK31 all-in-one Title 31 / AML system, cardless and cashless solutions, Konetic employee mobile app, and much more.


The Konetic Employee App empowers casino teams to perform a mix of tasks directly from a secure Apple or Android mobile device. By taking traditional cage functions like TITO ticket redemption out on-the-go through Konetic’s Voucher module, guests can enjoy new heights of service and convenience from an authorized floor attendant, without waiting in line at the cage or kiosk. Konetic’s Attendant Pays module enables authorized employees to be able to service jackpots, wide-area progressives (WAP), cancel credit, and disputes with convenient mobile tracking, logs, processes, and documents. Each step is completed digitally through the app’s easy online workflow. 

The Konetic Employee App also improves casino floor response times through its enhanced Dispatch module, which also supports team efficiency and visibility. Another time-saving feature is a built-in Progressive Signs module, which allows teams to monitor progressive meter sign readings throughout their casino floor and complete updates directly through the app. All configured progressives can be found with a simple name search and modifications can be made to the progressive amounts very quickly.


For years, SYNKROS has supported cashless play at slot machines and table games through Money Klip cashless wagering. Players simply load funds to their loyalty account at the cage or through an interfaced payment processor such as Sightline, EVERI, Koin, and others, for easy, fast, and secure digital transactions directly at the gaming machine. Players simply insert their card at the machine and enter their secure PIN when prompted through the True-Time Display™ or True-Time Windowing™. Upon successful verification, players are invited to click the money icon in order to define how much digital cash they wish to download to the game from their Money Klip cashless wagering account. When the card is removed from the machine after play, any remaining balance is transferred back into their Money Klip account. They can even use their digital funds at table games. These combined features help make cashless wagering as seamless and useful for players as possible.

Konami’s award-winning SYNK31 is a comprehensive Title 31 Anti-Money Laundering (AML) system that allows authorized SYNKROS users to gather, track, review, and complete all AML requirements, including Multiple Transaction Log (MTL), Negotiable Instrument Log (NIL), Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR), Currency Transaction Reporting (CTR), Know Your Customer (KYC) and more. SYNK31 leverages SYNKROS’ industry-leading data architecture to capture and compile all necessary AML information with robust, near real-time results. Additionally, SYNK31 provides true case management, empowering users to compile all reporting, time stamped notes, documents, screenshots, photos, videos, and emails associated with a particular patron or incident in one spot.

The three-year partnership will provide scholarships for Native American youth
to attend UNITY’s annual national conference



Phoenix, Ariz. – Each year, the National UNITY Conference brings together more than 2,000 attendees representing hundreds of Native American youth councils from Tribal and urban communities nationwide. At the Indian Gaming Association’s annual Trade Show, Gaming Laboratories International (GLI®) presented a $50,000 check to UNITY to support its National UNITY Conference and registration scholarships over the next three years, allowing an opportunity for more young people to attend and participate.


“Native youth are often left out of the discussion when organizations plan training and create programs to meet the needs of young people,” said Mary Kim Titla, UNITY executive director. “Our conference is youth-led, meaning they serve as emcees, moderators, and presenters—providing a hands-on experience in leadership development. With the support of GLI, we will be able to broaden our impact to reach even more Native youth leaders who may not necessarily have access to funds to attend.”

Each year, Native American and Alaska Native youth and advisors from rural and urban tribal communities across the U.S. come together for learning, cultural sharing, and collaboration. They receive training, gain knowledge, participate in quality personal growth experiences and receive encouragement to apply their gifts and talents to self and community betterment within a supportive/safe environment.

“Youth who attend UNITY’s programming discuss critical issues and hold important conversations that align with GLI’s initiatives to protect the environment, promote diversity, support education, and give back to the community,” said James Maida, President and CEO of GLI. “GLI is thrilled to offer the Native youth the opportunity to experience, network, and learn at a UNITY national conference. These are the youth who one day will lead their Tribes and represent Indian country. In fact, in honor of the late Norm DesRosiers, his dedication to Native gaming and love of UNITY, we’d like to challenge the entire gaming industry to match our donation and create an even larger impact on the lives of our Native youth and the future ahead.”

GLI’s support will allow the awarding of scholarships to candidates with a demonstrated and sincere interest in developing their capacity and ability to perform leadership roles.

Zitro has entered a new collaboration agreement with UNNIC Casino, the first casino to open in Andorra. UNNIC Casino has bet on Zitro’s GLARE cabinet line, which offers a unique combination of high-quality graphics, immersive soundtrack, ergonomic design, and innovative features.



As part of this commitment, UNNIC has added 40 GLARE cabinets, which feature some of Zitro’s most popular titles, including Mighty Hammer, Mega King, Link King, Link Me, 88 Link, Wheel of Legends, among others.

Coolbet, an online sports betting and casino brand of GAN, has revealed it will be leaving the Ontario market next month.

The operator entered the newly regulated market last April under an iGaming Ontario (iGO) license, having previously been available to residents via a license from the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA).

But Coolbet has now confirmed that it will pull out of the Canadian province completely by the end of Apr. 3.

Ahead of that date the brand will implement a transition period to tie up all loose ends.

First, Coolbet will turn off all deposit options on Mar. 21, leaving players with low balance left in their account a decision to make; to either use up all of the existing funds on bets or casino spins, or to top up the balance to withdraw all of the funds. The minimum withdrawal amounts are $1 (Interac) and $0.01 (Trustly).

Then, on Mar. 22, its casino and sportsbook will close. Bets that cannot be settled by then because the outcome is still unknown will be voided and refunded. This includes futures and in parlays; if any of the outcomes result is not known the part of that parlay will be voided and odds set to 1.00.

Furthermore, any bonus funds will be fully unlocked from wagering requirements on Mar. 23.

The final step happens on Apr. 3, when the website and mobile app will be shut down.

Coolbet’s statement concluded: “Thank you for all the good times, and always remember…Stay Cool. Bet Responsibly.”

LAS VEGASMarch 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Acres Manufacturing Company ("Acres" or the "Company"), a leading casino loyalty and technology innovator, announced today the launch of TIBO (Ticket-In Bonus-Out), a groundbreaking new slot ticketing solution enabled by its next-generation Foundation™ technology. TIBO dispenses cashable tickets and bonuses directly to players via the slot machine's ticket dispenser. Acres will demonstrate its new TIBO solution at the upcoming Indian Gaming Tradeshow & Convention, to be held on March 27-30, 2023, in San Diego, California. Deployments are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2023.

TIBO is one of the first true evolutions of Ticket-In Ticket-Out ("TITO") technology, a solution that changed the industry when it debuted roughly 20 years ago and is now installed nearly universally in slot machines worldwide. The new TIBO offering from Acres takes TITO to the next level, performing core ticket issuance and redemption functions at slot machines, kiosks and cashier terminals while enhancing the player experience by delivering tangible, physical bonuses of value to the player. Players appreciate and value the power and excitement of a printed ticket and TIBO makes it easier for casino operators to bring bonuses to players' hands.

TIBO works on any slot machine, including those connected to casino management systems ("CMS") from Aristocrat, IGT, Konami and Light & Wonder, allowing casino operators to immediately deploy TIBO on their casino floors. While the legacy CMS continues to account for play and loyalty data, the combination of TIBO and Foundation takes over ticketing responsibilities to deliver exciting new bonus opportunities, which can be triggered by Foundation's real-time data stream. This new, seamless solution from Acres follows on the current success of Acres' Cashless Casino deployments which have now reached 31,000 games in 9 states. Over time, casinos will be able to migrate all CMS functionality to Foundation – including loyalty, bonusing, cashless, reporting and analytics – and remove the legacy CMS without disruption, resulting in meaningful annual hardware and maintenance savings that flow immediately to the bottom line.

"We are continuously looking for ways to innovate to bring new technology to casino floors. In much the same way we've pursued the burgeoning cashless opportunity, we created TIBO because consumer tastes have changed in the 20 plus years since TITO was released," said Noah Acres. "Modern consumers want gamified experiences triggered by real-time personal data and TIBO fulfills these desires by issuing targeted, data-driven bonuses through the slot machine's ticket printer."

Legacy TITO solutions cannot leverage real-time player data, can only print in response to the push of the cash out button on a slot machine and only issue tickets for the amount shown on the game's credit meter at the time of cash out. Acres' new TIBO solution leverages the real-time data stream provided by Foundation and benefits from access to game commands to print a ticket of any value at any moment, including a 'print ticket' pop-up in the casino operator's Cashless Casino app or even automatically if a trigger event occurs. Bonus tickets produced by TIBO and dispensed by the ticket printer can be redeemed for a multitude of value categories, including cash, free play, or merchandise.
