Barona Slots Loosen Up Again

Casino Players Cash in on Certified Manufacturer's Best Paying Machines

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - March 23, 2010) -  On the heels of Barona's Loose Troop™ campaign, which has expert slot technicians loosening slot machines on the floor while players observe, the world's leading slot machine manufacturers are working exclusively with Barona Resort & Casino's Loose Troop™ to loosen even more slot machines. This means that casino-goers can enjoy even better odds of winning on their favorite big-name games as part of Barona's Certified Manufacturer's Best Payouts program.

Barona has partnered with the gaming industry's leading creators of the most popular slot machines for this program. Simply put, Barona's Manufacturer's Best Payout slots are certified by the manufacturer that their machines at Barona are set as loose as they can be set and cannot possibly be looser anywhere else.

"We've teamed up with our slot manufacturers to make sure our players can win more jackpots and play longer on the industry's most exciting games including Whipping Wild, Jackpot Celebration and Blazing 7s," explains Chuck Hickey, vice president of slot operations at Barona.

As well as playing popular-titled slot machines marked with "Certified Manufacturer's Best Payouts," Barona gamers also should continue to be on the lookout for the Loose Troop™ -- a friendly and fun-loving group of expert slot technicians that regularly patrols the casino floor loosening other slots to be looser and more fun.

"All of this casino craziness is to give our first timers and loyal guests higher payout percentages in a fun and festive atmosphere," added Hickey, holding up colorful hats and t-shirts that also will be given away throughout the promotion.

In addition to 2,000 slots, including progressive slots and video poker machines, Barona has more than 75 table games including Blackjack, Pai Gow Poker, Caribbean Stud, Barona Craps, 3 Card Poker, 4 Card Poker, Mississippi Stud, Let It Ride and new chipless table games including Barona Roulette, Rapid Baccarat and i-Table Blackjack.
