TEMECULA, Calif. – (Feb. 22, 2018) – New to Pechanga Resort & Casino’s 200,000- square foot casino floor is the first-ever TRUE 4D™ slot machine. Guests can play IGT’s SPHINX 4D first in Southern California at Pechanga. The game includes 3D imagery and combines it with gesture recognition to detect hand/finger location relative to the screen, as well as mid-air haptic feedback allowing the player to “feel” and manipulate the 3D images. Pechanga’s three SPHINX 4D slot machines were installed Tuesday, Feb. 20 and switched on live for players on Wednesday, Feb.  21.

“We see a lot of slot machines come onto our casino floor, and IGT’s SPHINX 4D has to be one of the most innovative, technologically advanced products I have seen in a long time,” said Alex Rodriguez, Pechanga vice president of slot operations. “It’s almost sci-fi and like Bruce Wayne’s computer in some of the new Batman movies.”

The slots are penny denomination and can be found adjacent to the Pechanga Theater gift shop on the main casino level. Guests who come in Thursday, February 28 and play the new SPHINX 4D machine will receive a free SPHINX t-shirt while supplies last.

“IGT’s SPHINX 4D game going live at Pechanga Resort & Casino marks an exciting milestone for casino entertainment in Southern California,” said Toni Martinez, IGT Vice President Western Region Sales. “The SPHINX 4D game introduces a multi-sensory gaming experience unlike anything previously seen on casino floors, and can help Pechanga propel its reputation as a world-class gaming destination.”

Highlights of playing SPHINX 4D include a three-level progressive jackpot, seven interactive bonuses, mid-air haptic interaction, gesture recognition control, enhanced graphics, surround sound and a multi-media sound chair.
