International Game Technology PLC (IGT) has announced that it has launched the highly anticipated DiamondRS mechanical reel cabinet. The cabinet marks a pivotal point for IGT in the mechanical reel segment and leverages extensive market research merged with leading-edge technology to provide a next-generation gaming experience on a traditional cabinet style.
Guests of Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel in Highland, Calif. were among the first players in the world to enjoy exciting new versions of popular IGT slot games on the DiamondRS cabinet.
“Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel is honored to be one of the first casinos worldwide to offer IGT’s DiamondRS cabinet. 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,” Kenji Hall, Chief Operating Officer at Yaamava’ Resort & Casino, said.
Combining player-preferred design with first-rate innovation, the DiamondRS cabinet retains some of the design elements and iconic mechanical reel components that helped drive the success of IGT’s iconic S2000 slot machine, a pillar on casino floors for decades, and the subsequent S3000 cabinet. The DiamondRS cabinet features a familiar three-reel configuration enhanced with state-of-the-art IGT Diamond Glass transmissive reel technology, which integrates a transparent video overlay over the mechanical reels, enabling the cabinet to host multiple payline configurations and more engaging game content.
“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. This groundbreaking evolution reflects IGT’s ingenuity and commitment to delivering premier gaming products that meet player preferences and provide dynamic performance,” said Nick Khin, IGT Chief Operating Officer, Gaming.
The DiamondRS cabinet includes a bold 32-inch ultra-high-definition LCD top box display with a 23-inch high-definition main monitor with multi-touch screen capabilities. To elevate the experience, the dynamic player panel incorporates an easy-to-read panel and ergonomic button deck design, complete with an inductive wireless phone charger and USB charging port. In addition, the intelligent cabinet lighting adds a vibrant focal point with energetic win celebrations.
