IGT announced Thursday that its high-performing video core content cabinet,the PeakSlant49, has now become part of the San Manuel Casino in Highland, California. The property currently features 132 PeakSlant49 cabinets with the initial themes of “Stinkin’ Rich”, “Skunks Gone Wild” and “Regal Riches”.
The addition of these cabinets and games came along with the completion of the resort’s new expansion, which included 1,500 slot machines and the unveiling of an enlarged gaming space. This was one of the first locations in the U.S. where the cabinet became available for players.
IGT initially launched the PeakSlant49 cabinet as a for-lease cabinet in 2020, but in May 2021 the company announced it would extend the hardware to its for-sale cabinet portfolio.
The PeakSlant49 video slots cabinet has a 49-inch, progressively curved Ultra-HD display, which is complemented with a 27-inch video topper. It includes an inductive wireless charger, USB port and a 13.3-inch panel.
In an official press release, General Manager of San Manuel Casino Peter Arceo spoke about the inclusion of the cabinet in the property and said: “Driving innovation and delighting players has been San Manuel Casino’s priority for 35 years. With IGT’s PeakSlant49 cabinets, San Manuel Casino can offer our valued guests a pipeline of IGT’s preferred core content for years to come, aligning brilliantly with our promise to always deliver exceptional entertainment to our customers.”
IGT’s Senior Vice President of Sales, Gaming, Ken Bossingham added: “San Manuel Casino being among the first gaming venues in the U.S. to offer IGT core games on the PeakSlant49 cabinet is consistent with the casino’s reputation for embracing future-forward solutions that elevate the player experience. Stinkin’ Rich Skunks Gone Wild and the high-performing Regal Riches games are a few of IGT’s Proven Performer titles that vividly stand out in ultra-high definition on our premium-caliber PeakSlant49 cabinet.”
