The supplier will implement its technology sometime during the second quarter.

Harry Reid International Airport has selected Light & Wonder’s System solutions to manage the Michael J Gaughan Airport Slot Concession slot floors. Under the terms of the deal, Light & Wonder’s system will replace the current solution across the airport’s 1,000 slot machines.

Its solutions are scheduled to go live throughout Harry Reid’s terminals during this year’s second quarter.

Light & Wonder President of Global Systems and Service Jon Wolfe commented on the company’s desire to offer airport players a quality gaming experience.

He said, “Light & Wonder is committed to delivering cutting-edge solutions that redefine the gaming experience.

“Our systems solution is designed to elevate casino hospitality and improve customer service to deliver an unparalleled level of player satisfaction.”

Along with providing its system services, Light & Wonder will offer Concession’s IT operations comprehensive support. This aims to give the Concession access to new technology tools and continued support that could help minimize downtime.

Michael Gaughan’s Airport Slot Concession General Manager Patricia Ross explained how the company reached its decision to partner with Light & Wonder.

She commented, “Choosing Light & Wonder as our systems provider was a decision rooted in their next-level customer support.

“Their commitment to excellence extends beyond leading-edge technology and supports our goal of delivering an exceptional player experience.”

Following the recent F1 Grand Prix in Las Vegas, Harry Reid International Airport reported an increase in travel during the month of November. In its report, the airport said it had its best November on record. Nearly 4.8 million passengers came through during the month.

Light & Wonder was crowned Casino Supplier of the Year at the Global Gaming Awards EMEA 2024 last week.
