IGT launches first video slot on spinning reels in Minnesota

International Game Technology has launched its S3000 cabinet at the Grand Casino Mille Lacs in Onamia, Minnesota. 

The modernising of its casino entertainment in Minnesota comes off the back of becoming the first gaming supplier approved to distribute video slot games on spinning reel cabinets in the state. Furthermore, the Grand Casino Mille Lacs has become the first gaming venue in Minnesota to offer this form of gaming. 

“Introducing IGT games on the S3000 cabinet instantly elevated the excitement and diversified the entertainment that we can offer Grand Casino Mille Lacs guests,” said Robbie Sawyer, Grand Casino Mille Lacs vice president of gaming

“Grand Casino Mille Lacs is proud to be the first casino in Minnesota to showcase IGT’s spinning games and is delighted to observe our guests enjoying the quintessential gaming experiences that they deliver.”

The S3000 gaming machine is said to deliver a ‘new-to-the-state gaming experience’ with titles such as Double Gold, Pink Diamond, Triple Gold Bars and Triple Jackpot Jewels offered on its cabinet.

IGT’s COO, Nick Khin, noted: “By deploying IGT’s S3000 cabinets, Grand Casino Mille Lacs is the first casino operator in Minnesota to benefit from the player appeal of the industry’s most iconic spinning reel cabinet and the strength of IGT’s vast spinning reel content library. 

“IGT’s recent regulatory approval to deploy mechanical reel games in Minnesota presents a meaningful growth opportunity for the Company and our casino customers throughout the state.”
