Palm Desert, CA (October 30, 2009) - Patrons of Southern California’s Morongo Casino Resort & Spa will be some of the first in the world to experience high-speed Ethernet gaming, thanks largely to Synergy Information Solutions, which is serving as network consultant and architect for the Morongo project.
The forward-looking technology is designed to provide casino players a faster, more interactive, and a more customized gaming experience. It enables slot machines to communicate faster with the main Morongo Winners Club system, which gives customers more information about activities and events throughout the casino. It also lays down the required infrastructure for server-based gaming which many in the gaming industry view as a “game changer.”
As the network specialist for the Morongo project, Synergy is working closely with Bally Technologies, a global leader in slots, video machines, and casino-management systems. Synergy is designing and implementing the extensive Cisco Systems network infrastructure that allows the casino to support Bally’s advanced gaming software.
“The scale and innovation of this project make it one of the first of its kind,” said George Washington, CEO of Synergy Information Solutions. “Using State-of-the-Art Cisco platforms, we have designed a high-speed gaming floor that is scalable and secure – providing Morongo with both compliance and peace of mind.”
“There are very few casinos in the world that have this type of technology, and now we are one of them,” said Marlon Ortiz, IT Director for Morongo Casino Resort & Spa. “This is definitely going to keep us on the leading edge.”
The high-speed gaming upgrade is not the first time Synergy Information Solutions has worked with Morongo, and Ortiz is confident that it will not be the last.
“We reached out to Synergy last year for expertise on our network, and we were very impressed with the level of knowledge that they were providing to us,” said Ortiz.
