Tropicana Premieres Atlantic City’s Newest Gaming Destination May 15th 2008

Accentuates Cuban-theme throughout slot environment that envelopes the senses, entices players.

If you have never been to AC and hit the Tropicana / Quarter then you have to plan an evening or weekend away.  The Trop offers some of the best gaming floors south of Indian Country in Connecticut.  The restaurant’s will blow your tate buds away and we haven’t even talked about the shopping or nightlife.  I have been lucky enough to share dinner at the Palm with Tony Drago, one of the designers and knowing the General Manager of the Cuba Libre Restaurant may slant my opinion but it really is one of the best places in Atlantic City.  That said check out the this news release about the new goings on.

Atlantic City’s Tropicana Casino & Resort announces their plans for the opening of their new slot environment. “Havana Rooftop Slots” is a 3,000 square-foot raised section of its casino that has been completely transformed into an all-encompassing themed slot environment. New and current guests will experience this unique opportunity for themselves in this one-of-a-kind slot offering. Havana Rooftop Slots will debut beginning May 15th with a VIP/ Media Event and official Ribbon Cutting.

Mark Giannantonio, President and COO, Tropicana Casino & Resort says,  ” The attention to detail in creating Havana Rooftop Slots has exceeded my expectations. We are excited to be the first in AC to offer this unique slot area, and it will definitely be a competitive advantage in slot merchandising within the marketplace.”

The Havana Rooftop Slots project was developed in total from slot manufacturer and casino supply company, AC Coin & Slot, who designed and constructed the environment and provided 165 IGT® slot games for the project (including one bank of custom-themed slot machines), hand-painted murals, custom signage, and ergonomic slot bases and seating.

“Tropicana gave us the autonomy to utilize our skill sets of design and implementation to create this total slot environment package”,” said Jason Seelig, AC Coin & Slot Executive Vice President, Corporate Sales. “Trop is leading the way as we foresee this as a trend more casinos will follow to more competitively merchandise their gaming offerings.”

Visitors to the new slot area will be greeted by specially uniformed staff and surrounded with the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of Old Havana, Cuba.  Authentic Cuban music, vivid artwork, specialty drinks and coffees, festive lighting, and the faintest aromas of citrus and coffee that will entice the senses while players enjoy the latest in slot technology and entertainment, further distinguishing the Tropicana as the destination of choice for gaming enthusiasts.  Patrons will feel transported to another time and place as they lounge in plush appointments and overlook the casino floor below.

Players will also be able to try their luck with a series of 12 “Havana GoldTM” progressive-link slots, which have been custom-themed by International Game Technology (IGT) specifically for the project.  The Havana Gold series machines are five-reel, nine-line, 90-coin games that offer the excitement of free spin bonuses and will serve to complete the themed atmosphere.
