(SAN DIEGO) April 22, 2010 – For the first time in the United States, video slot players can choose how they want to win with the revolutionary Magic Touch® video slot machine at Barona Resort & Casino.
Developed by Incredible Technologies, Magic Touch® video slot games use a fun animated character, called the Prize Guy™ to explain and educate players about the three ways you can win: a low volatility game, designed to win often; a medium volatility game, designed to win steady; and a high volatility game, designed to win big.
"The new Magic Touch game is one of the more exciting new products to launch at Barona because it empowers individual video slot players to choose how they want to win," said Chuck Hickey, vice president of slots. "We believe cutting edge technology is only good if it is good for our players. Magic Touch is both great and exciting for our players and adds to their overall gaming experience."
Designed and created by innovative slot machine manufacturer Incredible Technologies, the Magic Touch® video slot games feature state-of-the-art 3-D graphics, animations and digital sound. Players can choose from four exciting and different themes, including the buzzing and fast Cars, colorful Fish Store, wild and exotic Fruit and action-packed Money.
"If we're not creating games that push the boundaries of imagination, we're not doing our job," said Elaine Hodgson, president and CEO of Incredible Technologies. "Much like us, Barona thrives on a spirit of innovation in entertainment, making them the premiere partner to launch our Magic Touch video slot games."
Recently, Barona also doubled the number of multi-line penny slots on the casino floor. The penny slots span from treasured themes such as Aztec Temple to relaxing destinations such as Hawaiian Sunset Multi-play and excitement in the popular Glitz.
In addition to a total of 2,000 slots, including progressive slots and video poker machines, Barona has more than 80 table games including blackjack, Pai Gow poker, Caribbean Stud, Barona Craps,three-card poker, four-card poker, Mississippi Stud, Let It Ride and new chipless table games including Barona Roulette, Rapid Baccarat and i-Table Blackjack.
