With a special ribbon-cutting ceremony on May 17, International Game Technology (IGT) introduced its latest video poker game Fortune X Poker.

As the software supplier announced, the game will be available to Yaamava’ Resort & Casino players at San Manuel in Highland, California.

The X Marks the Spot! celebration commemorated this “first in California” installation and included five popular slot influencers from across the US.

It is the first time IGT’s Fortune X Poker product was introduced in California casinos.

Kenji Hall, Interim General Manager of Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel, said via the company’s press release:

“Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel is excited to be the first casino in California to introduce the Fortune X Poker that is sure to bring the thrill to our valued guests. IGT’s robust library of games has continuously delivered on performance, and we’re certain that Fortune X Poker will bring a cutting-edge, one-of-a-kind game experience that our players cannot find anywhere else.”

The San Manuel Entertainment Authority (SMEA) owns and operates Yaamava’ Resort & Casino.

Darnell Johnson, IGT Senior Director of Product Management, Video Poker, said: “We were pleased to partner with Yaamava’ Resort and Casino for a special kickoff event that introduced IGT’s Fortune X Poker to the property’s video poker enthusiasts.

IGT’s legendary video poker content consistently energizes the casino floor, and we are confident Fortune X Poker will be another compelling option that will thrill players, return excellent results, and propel IGT’s leadership in the segment.”

In addition to the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the five video poker influencers live-streamed the event on their respective YouTube channels. They were the first players to experience the game at the venue.

In July 2022, IGT similarly launched the new DiamondRS mechanical reel cabinet with players at the Yaamava’ Resort and Casino.
