The casino in California features 'Cher Live', according to a news release from the resort in Indio - roughly a 25-mile drive from where her ex-husband and mentor, the late Sonny Bono, served as mayor of Palm Springs from 1988 to 1992.
“Cher turns back time in this hit game,” boasts its maker, Scientific Games, which previewed it at the 2015 Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas.
It focuses on the latter part of Cher’s 50-year-plus career with animation that includes live concert footage, a vibrating chair and five musical free-game bonuses: “Turn Back Time, “Believe,” “It's in His Kiss,” “All or Nothing,” and “Strong Enough.”
The game features five reels, 30 lines, a 20 credit bonus, and 400 credits maximum bet, according to Scientific Games.
The casino celebrated the debut with a party on the casino floor. The first 200 guests to try the game received $20 to play the new machine, according to the news release, which also stated:
"The casino is excited to be the first resort and casino in California to feature Cher Live, which is the world's first slot machine to feature entertainment icon Cher."
