International slot manufacturer Aruze Gaming America has announced the debut of its new Amazon Fishing™ joystick-controller interactive slot title at Barona Resort & Casino in San Diego.
“We are proud to continually install the newest and most advanced slot machines for our Barona players,” commented Rick Salinas, Barona Resort & Casino General Manager, “Barona is the first casino in North America to introduce Amazon Fishing and in the first few days of play we can tell that our players are making new friends with the interactive tournament aspect of the new game.”
Amazon Fishing™ is a community game that plays on three 60″ monitors. Players can individually select the type of fish bait to induce a more personalized experience on the bonus screen.
Larger bait ‘attracts’ less frequent but larger wins, while smaller bait result in more frequent but smaller rewards. Reel Feel™ Gaming Technology has also been integrated into the simulated rod controller. Players can feel resistance from the pull of the fish and a crank feature simulates actually reeling in players’ prizes.
Known as San Diego’s loosest casino, Barona has 2,000 slots and video poker machines. Additionally, the casino features over 80 table games including Blackjack, Pai Gow Poker, Caribbean Stud, Barona Craps, Three-Card Poker, Four-Card Poker, Mississippi Stud, Let It Ride, Baccarat and Barona Roulette, as well as the latest innovations in chipless gaming including Chipless Roulette™, Chipless Three-Card Poker and Chipless Blackjack™.
