SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - February 11, 2010) - Nostalgic for the boutique shops in Greenwich Village, that perfect cosmo and the art galleries in Soho? Then grab a date and head to Barona Resort & Casino for the Sex and the City™ video slot game.

This new, highly acclaimed and much-anticipated multi-level progressive slot game is now appearing for the first time in Southern California at Barona Resort & Casino in San Diego.

Based on the popular HBO® series, Sex and the City™ slots are creating quite a buzz at Barona as well as a handful of other hot casinos across the country that recently launched the high-fashion slot machine game. The game also resonates strongly with Sex in the City™ fans -- male and female alike -- by including iconic moments and quotes from the award-winning TV series.

"Simply put, this game is great fun right down to the shoes and cosmos," said Vice President of Slot Operations Chuck Hickey. "Sex and the City™ slots are performing off the charts, with some casinos reporting players standing in line to get a shot at playing. We expect it to be very popular with our guests."

The vividly animated slot game features the show's upbeat and catchy music as well as its oh-so popular characters, Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, Miranda and Mr. Big. It offers players a chance at five progressive jackpots and four bonus games.

With each bonus game, players get to watch their favorite video clips (such as "Hello, Lover!") that feature shoes, jewelry, fashion and more, and are tied to specific bonus themes.

"We knew this game was a winner from the start," said IGT Vice President of MegaJackpots® Tom Mikulich. "Our game development team made it a priority to stay true to the Sex and the City brand. We invite fans to sit back, relax and feel like they are part of the show with our state-of-the-art sound system and graphics. We are sure Barona's guests will love it."
