ALPHARETTA, GA – NOV. 1, 2023 – According to the American Gaming Association Outlook, the U.S. gaming industry had been moving forward at a strong pace during the first quarter of 2023 but was expected to decelerate through the end of the year due to economic uncertainty, among other reasons.
Despite possible headwinds, Kickapoo Lucky Eagle Casino • Hotel has upped its game and invested in cutting-edge hospitality software solutions from Agilysys to accelerate growth and elevate Return on Experience (ROE), a hospitality metric that recognizes financial returns improve through the in-person returns of customers and employees.

The system's real-time reporting and analytics offer management valuable insights to optimize operations and elevate guest satisfaction, such as connecting dining, gaming and activity preferences to guest names so staff can provide informed and personalized suggestions and service.
- A mobile, contactless, self-service food and beverage (F&B) ordering and payment application that makes it quick and easy for guests to view, order and pay for food and drinks across property venues as well as to request self-pick-up or delivery to their rooms, regardless of where they are on property.
