Loose Troop(TM) Lands at Barona Delivering More Jackpots, More Winning Moments and More Time at Your Favorite Slot Machine

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - January 21, 2010) - Need a little help winning money on today's state-of-the-art slot machines? No worries. Just look for the official Loose Troop™ that just landed at Barona Resort & Casino in San Diego.

This top-notch crew of slot technicians has been deployed to adjust some of the casino's 2,000 slot machines to make them "even looser than ever," explains Barona General Manager Rick Salinas.

"Barona has always been committed to having the loosest slots in San Diego but now that we have set the Loose Troop loose on our casino floor, it means our guests can expect even longer slot playing time, more jackpots and more winners," he added.

Barona's friendly and fun loving Loose Troop™ -- specially trained gaming sleuths dressed in eye-catching uniforms like a combination of Ghost Busters and Geek Squad -- vigilantly patrols the casino floor day and night in search of slot machines that could use a little attitude adjustment.

"Guests can't believe how much more generous this makes our slot machines," says Salinas of the casino's 2,000 slots and video poker machines, already the loosest in San Diego.

To cash in on some of the $10 million Barona pays out on average every day, he suggests guests simply look for the adjusted slots marked with the special "Loose Troop" symbol.

"It's a no-brainer," continued the hotel's general manager. "We're proud to offer the loosest slots around and we want everyone to come out and take full advantage of them."

In addition to 2,000 slots, progressive slots and video poker machines, Barona Roulette, Rapid Baccarat and iTable Blackjack are offered at Barona as well as 75 other table games including Blackjack, Pai Gow Poker, Caribbean Stud, Barona Craps, 3 Card Poker, 4 Card Poker, Mississippi Stud, Let It Ride and traditional poker.

Barona offers players exclusive advantages through the Club Barona membership rewards program. Members of Club Barona can earn points that are redeemable for cash back, free merchandise, hotel stays, restaurant meals and golf.

Joining Club Barona is fast, easy and free, giving players an opportunity to earn daily prizes and discounts. Sign up at the Club Barona booth in the casino or online at www.barona.com.
