Additionally, IGT’s CrystalCurve™ and CrystalDual® 27 upright cabinets comprise the majority of the Class III floor share at the new, Tacoma, Wash. casino.
“Emerald Queen I-5 Casino has one of the largest inventories of gaming machines in the region, and we’ve given IGT’s CrystalCurve and CrystalDual 27 cabinets a significant and prominent presence on our ADVANTAGE-powered gaming floor,” said Frank Wright, Emerald Queen Casino General Manager. “It means our players have more opportunities to enjoy a variety of IGT’s highly entertaining game titles, and our staff has the option to remotely respond to and monitor a range of casino events, ultimately minimizing the requirement for in-person interactions.”
