International Game Technology has lauded a “pivotal point” for the company as it launches its DiamondRS mechanical reel cabinet.
Among the first to experience the new cabinet was the Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel in Highland, California, as IGT noted that the DiamondRS will provide a “next-generation gaming experience” in a traditional cabinet style.
“Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel is honoured to be one of the first casinos worldwide to offer IGT’s DiamondRS cabinet,” said Kenji Hall, Yaamava’ Resort & Casino Chief Operating Officer.
“Our focus on providing the latest and most innovative product has been a pillar of our success. IGT continues to be a leader in this field, and this partnership allows us to provide a best-in-class experience for our valued customers.”
The DiamondRS cabinet retains some of the design elements and mechanical reel components of IGT’s S2000 slot machine, and the subsequent S3000 cabinet.
Furthermore, DiamondRS features a familiar three-reel configuration enhanced with IGT’s Diamond Glass transmissive reel technology, which integrates a transparent video overlay over the mechanical reels, enabling the cabinet to host multiple payline configurations.
“The launch of the DiamondRS cabinet continues IGT’s decades-long reign in the mechanical reel segment with classic DNA enhanced by the industry-first innovation of Diamond Glass technology,” added Nick Khin, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Gaming.
“This groundbreaking evolution reflects IGT’s ingenuity and commitment to delivering premier gaming products that meet player preferences and provide dynamic performance.”
The DiamondRS cabinet includes a 32-inch ultra-high-definition LCD top box display with a 23-inch high-definition main monitor with multi-touch screen capabilities. In addition, the player panel incorporates an easy-to-read panel and ergonomic button deck design, complete with a wireless phone charger and USB charging port.
The DiamondRS cabinet is supported by an extensive content library featuring new renditions of IGT’s Double Top Dollar, along with new titles such as Pinball Double Gold and Red Hot Tamales! Pinata Bash.
