The hum of slot machines and jackpots was greeted by the rumblings of excitement on the second floor of Yaamava’ Resort & Casino at San Manuel. Separated by only 10 feet, team members worked swiftly to arrange two world premieres in less than 15 minutes. As a crowd began to form, two new slot machines awaited their reveal for a new journey of wins.

The lights shined bright, and the ribbons were primed to be cut for the debuts of MONOPOLY Balloon Cash and Lucky Hog Extreme. World premieres tend to generate a buzz within the walls of Yaamava’, even more so when two occur within minutes of each other.

“I have plenty of practice with ribbon-cutting ceremonies at this point,” said Rodney Villhard, Vice President of Slots. “Hosting two world premieres on the same day is a great chance to bring one-of-a-kind experiences to Club Serrano members.”

Yaamava’ embraced the occasion and created an experience that allowed guests to relish in new ways to win. With 7,200 slots, Southern California’s No. 1 resort and casino continues to create new ways to elevate the gaming experience.  

“I think it’s a great opportunity for us to work with our partners to showcase our beautiful casino,” Rodney said. “It’s also a great opportunity to introduce the newest games for Club Serrano members.”



The classic board game has been reinvented into a slot machine, and the journey to a jackpot is cause for mayhem. MONOPOLY Balloon Cash features the iconic Mr. Monopoly, who drops money bags from a hot air balloon that can result in array of outcomes. From extra spins to jackpots, each press of the button means an adventure.

"Monopoly is a brand that is very well recognized by our guests,” Villhard said. “So, to be able to bring another great game into our portfolio allows them to experience all the different Monopoly games throughout the year.”

MONOPOLY Balloon Cash expands the number of ways for players to win with bonus spins and Wilds, which can multiply their points up to four times. By bringing the household game to the casino floor, guests can expect an experience that is unique to Yaamava’.

“We partner with Yaamava’ because they are one of the premier gaming destinations in the United States,” said Leigh Sauer, Light & Wonder Director of Sales. “They’re excellent partners and we have an outstanding relationship with them.”



The wins keep coming to Yaamava’ and there is no plan on stopping! Konami debuted Lucky Hog Extreme near Overlook Bar, where players can test their luck with different iterations of the slot machine.

“This is another installation in Konami’s line of Lucky Hog games,” Villhard said. “This slot machine features even more extended bonus games and more chances to win.”  

Whether it’s Victory Dance or Pirate Wealth, Lucky Hog Extreme includes prize features that occur frequently to grant players opportunities to earn free games, multiply their prizes and win jackpots. The primary game features a hog on both reels that will trigger the Prize Feature element, with chances to multiply rewards at random times with the bonus line.
