Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel recently debuted two new slot themes featuring TABASCO Brand Products developed by IGT. As the first casino in the U.S. to introduce these newly designed slot machines, Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel guests will be the first to experience these hot new gaming machines, one inspired by TABASCO Brand Pepper Sauces and the other paying homage to the birthplace of TABASCO Sauce, Avery Island.
The modernized game themes are housed on IGT’s CrystalCore cabinet, which features a 42-inch vertical touch-screen display, USB charging port and a digital player panel. The “Jackpot Bonus” is the main feature of each game — it can be triggered in the regular game and in the free spins feature.
“IGT’s new TABASCO Brand slot games pair the dynamic player experience of the CrystalCore cabinet with captivating gameplay and bonus events that leverage iconic TABASCO imagery,” said Tim Shortall, IGT vice president Eastern region sales, gaming. “The Chitimacha Tribe of Louisiana’s deep connection to the TABASCO Brand adds to the excitement of the slots’ launch and makes Cypress Bayou Casino the ideal IGT customer to debut these unique multi-level progressive games.”
“The artwork used in these games is unique to our area. Guests are going to immediately recognize many of the symbols and the iconic TABASCO Brand products,” commented Russell Christianson, executive director of operations at Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel.
“The Chitimacha Tribe of Louisiana, which owns Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel, and the McIlhenny family, which owns and manufacturers TABASCO Sauce on Avery Island, Louisiana, share a special history,” said Jack Darden, interim general manager. “In the early 1900s Mary Avery McIlhenny Bradford and her sister Sara Avery McIlhenny purchased the remaining tribal lands in St. Mary Parish and later petitioned the federal government to hold the land in trust for the beneficial use of the Chitimacha tribe in perpetuity, thus creating the Chitimacha reservation. The relationship is extraordinary and it is exciting to be the first in the U.S. to launch the TABASCO Brand slot products.”
Guests can play on the three 30-payline, multi-level jackpot games located near Cafe Delphine and Loco Mexican Grill and Cantina at Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel.
