The extra-large, ultra-high definition slot premieres at the California casino with the Stuffed Coins game series and a library of over 80 other games.

Barona Resort & Casino in Lakeside, California has become the first property outside of Las Vegas to launch Konami Gaming’s big-screen Dimension slot machine. The slot’s extra-large format features three stacked 43-inch ultra-high definition screens and the game debuting with it is the Stuffed Coins series.

The casino has over 2,200 slot games to choose from and several table game types including blackjack, 3 card poker, EZ Baccarat and EZ Pai Gow along with its own Barona Craps, Barona Roulette & Turn3 and Barona’s Dragon Alley. Konami introduced the new Dimension 43x3 at the Global Gaming Expo in October, and now Barona Resort & Casino has three of the machines installed on its casino floor.

Kevin Ward, VP of Slot Operations at Barona Resort & Casino, said, “This premiere is a fantastic slot showcase catching attention from across the casino and delighting our players with the Stuffed Coins linked progressive series.

“As a casino that has long focused on VIP Players and hospitality, Barona is pleased to welcome players with a variety of the latest slot releases, such as this landmark launch of Konami’s new large-format machine.”

In addition to the launch of the Dimension 43x3 outside of Vegas, Konami has also recently appointed a new VP of Studio Operations, Eric Schultz, and promoted five members of its sales and business development teams to directorial roles.

Gerard Crosby, SVP & Chief Games Product Officer at Konami Gaming commented, “We’re very happy for the opportunity to partner with Barona on this important premiere and memorable opportunity for players. The machine’s entertainment value and library of 80+ available games will give enjoyment to players for years to come.”
