American Gaming System (AGS) is set distribute their Colossal Diamond cabinets to casinos across Nevada since recently securing the permits to distribute their product in the state.
The Colossal Diamond also known as ‘Big Red’ is described to be a ‘quiet classic’. It is a large unit that occupies the same space as three standard cabinets and can be recognised by its signature red colour. It claims to perform on par with six regular cabinets and has proven popular wherever they have been placed.
Approval after extended testing
The approval for this large scale distribution comes after a successful field trial at the Paris Las Vegas and Caesars Palace Casinos on the Las Vegas Strip. Initially, 250 machines were placed in 17 states across the USA in popular casinos such as The Winstar in Oklahoma, Mohegan Sun in Connecticut, Pechanga in California and The Hard Rock Tampa in Tampa Florida.
The ‘Big Red’ is a three reel, single payline game which accepts bets between 5 and 15 credits per play. The colourful graphics, simple gameplay and frequent payouts have proven well-liked by the users.
Also available for social casinos
A Free-to-play version of the game has been developed and released on Lucky Play Casino, AGS’s social casino venture. Colossal Diamond quickly became the most popular game on the virtual casino; the suppliers commented on its high definition graphics and high fidelity sounds, which is said to account for its success with the customers, since it simulates the land-based version extremely well.
