Konami is headed to Vegas with a new license to make gambling devices for distribution to casinos. The deal could bring as much as 15 million yen selling TV-based 3D poker and slot machines to gambling institutions in Nevada and Mississippi as soon as this December with its first game Simply Poker, with the ultimate goal of securing 20 percent the market. Konami also has its sights set on other U.S. states with legalized gambling, including California and Indiana. Should Konami strike deals in those states, the company will move production from its Kanagawa, Japan, plant to Las Vegas.
