Sky River Casino in Northern California goes cashless

October 5, 2022

The partnership between Konami Gaming and Everi will provide cashless gaming options for guests.

Sky River Casino, in partnership with Konami Gaming and Everi Holdings, announced the implementation of cashless gaming options for guests at the location.

The location will provide these options by combining Everi’s digital CashClub Wallet with Konami’s SYNKROS casino management system. 

The partnership between the two will allow guests to enjoy a mix of digital, mobile, traditional and contactless payment options across the destination’s 2,000 slot machines, 80 table games and 12 unique dining experiences. 

Sky River Casino President and Chief Operating Officer Chris Gibase said: "At Sky River, we have dedicated significant attention to creating memorable experiences for guests.

"By investing in cutting-edge cashless technology that brings convenience and innovation to payments, loyalty, and rewards, Sky River allows guests to focus on the entertainment, using whichever touchpoints they prefer."

The Sky River Casino is managed by the Boyd Gaming Corporation and owned by the Wilton Rancheria Tribe.

Konami Gaming Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Tom Jingoli added: "It is incredibly impressive to see the historic opening of Sky River Casino made even larger by an industry-leading technology approach.

"Wherever the transaction, with whatever payment method, guests have the opportunity to enjoy robust, real-time loyalty rewards and the use of integrated, digital account funds across all casino touchpoints."

The location first opened to the public on August 15, 2022, with Konami’s SYNKROS casino management system.

Everi Executive Vice President and Fintech Business Leader Darren Simmons commented: "Activity across the guest experience is continuously captured, recognized, and rewarded by powerful integrations between Everi’s industry-leading cashless payments solutions and Konami’s robust SYNKROS systems environment."

Both Konami Gaming Inc. and Everi Holdings Inc. have bases in Las Vegas, Nevada.
