ARIZONA (August 17, 2020) – Philadelphia-based casino supply manufacturer, KGM Gaming developed multiple Social Protection solutions to help casinos around the country get started on their ‘new normal’ protocols while reopening establishments to the public during the Covid-19 Pandemic.
KGM’s newest partnership, Desert Diamond Casinos and Entertainment in Arizona, utilized the slot machine protection shields by having the plexiglass installed in all four of their Arizona locations, near Glendale, Tucson, Sahuarita and Why. The shields provide an added barrier between customers. With the help of Desert Diamond’s Director of Slot Operations – West Valley, Troy Hall and his in-depth knowledge of the needs of their casino floor, the partnership was able to design and create new freestanding shields.
“Desert Diamond Casinos was a fantastic partner from start to finish on this project,” said Vice President of Operations at KGM Gaming, Jack McNamara. “The slot teams provided excellent feedback and were always there to communicate and assist with this new product. Troy Hall and James O’Kimosh were both a true pleasure to work with. We couldn’t have asked for a more professional slot team to launch with.”
Casinos are in need of products that will provide additional levels of protection for customers and employees and being a USA based manufacturing company, KGM has been able to work quickly to fulfill this need. Desert Diamond Casinos and Entertainment are four out of 39 properties throughout the country to receive the social protection products from KGM.
“It’s been incredibly important for our team here at Desert Diamond Casinos to get back up and running as soon and as safely as possible. KGM made the whole process extremely easy,” said Hall. “Everyone in our industry has had to learn how to adapt and persevere in ways we never thought we’d have to. We’re lucky to have partnered with KGM to make the transition seamless.”
KGM began producing and installing the new product line back in April 2020.
