SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - August 3, 2010) - Over 200 of the latest and most popular slot machines have been unveiled at Barona Resort & Casino and they are already a big hit with players.

"Our Barona Loose Troop™ has been getting great feedback from guests on the games they want to try out and the slot machines they want to see more of," said Chuck Hickey, vice president of slot operations at Barona. "Most of our new games are penny slots so our players can also enjoy more playing time on a wide variety of games."

Barona has added favorites such as WMS's whimsical Mermaid's Wonders Goldfish 2, exciting Price is Right and mythical Zeus II and Lancelot games. In addition to several Pot O' Gold machines, Barona has also installed two dozen Extra Rewards games made by Konami including the adventurous Arabian Gold, captivating Egyptian Eyes and alluring Pirate's Rose, as well as the popular Gigantic Dragons and Gigantic 7s.

With the help of the Barona Loose Troop, many of Barona's new slots have been certified by the manufacturer that the machines are set as loose as they can be set and guaranteed not to be looser anywhere else. 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 and players won't find any of the new machines looser at any other casino.

The new slots join Barona's collection of 2,000 slot and video poker games. The casino also features 80 table games including blackjack, Pai Gow poker, Caribbean Stud, Barona Craps, three-card poker, four-card poker, Mississippi Stud, Let It Ride, as well as the most exciting innovations in chipless gaming including Chipless Roulette™, Chipless Baccarat™ and Chipless Blackjack™.
