"High-energy entertainment for the player. Affordable solutions to differentiate your property. The right products and systems to give players the experiences they want and the profits casinos need. IGT is taking gaming to the next level," Eric Tom, IGT executive vice president of sales and marketing, said. "This year's IGT showing at G2E will absolutely prove that we're the industry leader, now and for the future.”
IGT Product Highlights at G2E
• World Premiere of Sex and the City Multi-Level Progressives - The Sex and the City slot is the first MegaJackpots game to feature IGT's top-performing MultiPLAY game interface. The characters from the show, the sounds, the video and the customized hardware combine with superior math, truly entertaining bonuses and the potential to win more - and it's all tied together into one fabulous package.
• Debut of IGT's Center Stage Series - This revolutionary new platform offers unlimited content options from the premier product line in the industry. When new games are released, content can be simply downloaded to the platform - without new cabinets or hardware. The Wheel of Fortune Experience in 3-D and American Idol are the first to be launched on the new platform.
• More engaging and interactive fun from the MegaJackpots line - The Amazing Race takes Group Play gaming to another level with the industry's first and only co-op bonus entry. The Alice's Adventures in Wonderland MultiPLAY video slot is IGT's hot new Progression Play theme, allowing players to accumulate credits, awards or levels of play on an ongoing basis. IGT's MegaJackpots games give casinos the power to drive revenues.
• The next level in game immersion - And to bring MegaJackpots games alive, IGT's proud to introduce the MEGAfx Surround Chair. It immerses players and creates an enhanced entertainment experience.
• IGT DynamiX affords true flexibility - No product is as flexible, gives as much choice, or offers the true 3-D game play today's player has embraced. Operators will get the most out of their investment with IGT Dynamix - a bundle of IGT's most innovative technologies (3-D games, MLD, AVP, multi-game and dynamic buttons). The IGT DynamiX bundle runs any 3-, 4- and 5 spinning-reel and video conversions on the same box, letting players decide what they want to play with one onscreen touch.
• More 3-D - Players love their entertainment value. Operators appreciate the flexibility and the choices the 3-D technology affords them. That is why 95 percent of IGT's for-sale showing is on MLD (Multi-Layer Display) models. Also debuting is the first ever 3-D video slot, made possible only by IGT's exclusive 3-D technology.
• More MultiPLAY - Riding the coattails of the wildly successful MultiPLAY, Reel MultiPLAY Slots feature MultiPLAY on spinning reels with configurable lines, appealing to traditional spinning reel players along with players who have become comfortable betting on more than one game at the same time. And the next generation answer to MultiPLAY: Lucky Game-N-Game and Keep it Reelin' Slots.
• The next level in Video Poker - The richest video poker experiences come from the best games, and those come from IGT Video Poker. Operators will excite their poker players with the first community bonus for video poker in Hot Pursuit Poker. Poker players will get another dose of winning with the first wide area mega-progressive video poker game: Super Times Pay Poker Mega Progressive. And a math model built with neural net technology gives players the chance at matching wits against the machine, mano-a-mano, in the Texas Hold'em Heads Up Poker game.
• Delivering practical systems solutions - From trusted well-known systems products to emerging technologies, IGT Network Systems gives you a competitive edge. The downloadable game library, Service Window, the sbX Tier One package, compelling IGT Advantage add-on products (Gift Points, Virtual Drawings, Table Bonusing, Slot Analytics), Advantage Bonusing & Delivery Game Concepts, IGT Tournament Manager, IGT Casinolink and Professional Services provide unmatched value and performance for casino operations worldwide.
• Bringing players together - IGT's new multi-player products are built to entertain, and infuse the best of video gaming with the positive social aspects of wagering on a common outcome. The Triple Towers Virtual Greyhound Racing game combines the excitement of the racetrack with the convenience of wagering at comfortable player stations. And debuting from the DigiDeal line is the X-Table, which adds bill acceptors and ticket printers to each position while eliminating the need for cards, chips, training and player account management. The social part that players love about poker is still there, but without overhead associated with a live poker game.
Developing products that offer authentic gaming excitement for the player is IGT's top priority. And for operators, IGT's goal is to help casinos realize superior value and performance. IGT is the only manufacturer that can help operators achieve new levels of dynamic casino and player management, and genuinely differentiate their floors from the competition now.
Eric Tom said, ” We're giving casinos the tools to provide players newfound, valuable experiences. Experiences that will change the industry and once again, set standards brought forth by IGT. IGT has pushed way beyond expectations, and has taken it to a whole new level of excellence."
