Central Florida’s Premier Entertainment Destination First to Showcase IGT’s Sizzling S3000
TAMPA, Fla. (Nov. 5, 2014) – Global gaming entertainment leader IGT (NYSE: IGT) and Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa (SHRT) announce their partnership for the world premiere of the S3000TM cabinet, IGT’s pioneering new spinning reel experience.
SHRT, the premier entertainment destination in Central Florida, will ultimately rock 55 games on the S3000 cabinet on its casino floor, creating a dynamic gaming destination like none other and leading the way for casinos worldwide.
“We are excited to partner with Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa to transform stepper-style gaming with the S3000 cabinet,” said Joe Sigrist, IGT VP of Global Product Development and Operations. “With the S3000, we preserved the time-tested, fan-favorite play mechanics of top-performing stepper cabinets and combined them with enhanced light and sound technology to create a truly electrifying product. This is a special moment in time and we can’t wait for our players to enjoy the ride.”
SHRT’s installation of S3000 cabinets includes IGT legacy fan-favorite titles such as Double Diamond, Double Gold, Triple Double Diamond Free Games and Triple Cash.
“We are thrilled to be the first casino in the world to feature IGT’s S3000 cabinet,” said Russ Christianson, Vice President of Slot Operations at SHRT. “Recognizing the demand for more spinning-reel games, we are confident that the S3000’s polished and immersive features will appeal to existing patrons and new players alike. This is going to redefine what people want on casino floors and we take pride in being on the forefront of such an important time for the gaming industry.”
From classic three-reel, single-payline games, to five-reel multiline games, S3000 provides compelling play options for all player types, including a simple five-button panel that is complemented by a state-of-the-art touch screen display. The S3000 is backed by an extensive pipeline of new and classic themes and is poised to meet the demands of any player type, resulting in a truly well-rounded evolution of a classic core centerpiece. As different themes are introduced over time, machines will be able to sync in a bank configuration with other machines to deliver a synched music and light show that will command attention on any casino floor.
