IGT will showcase its industry-shaping games, systems and machines at the 2009 Southern Gaming Summit, May 6-7 at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum & Convention Center in Biloxi. Innovative technologies fuel IGT’s ground-breaking game and systems concepts, and it all comes together in Booth #418.
“Our new games, machines and systems are evidence of new thinking,” IGT Senior Vice President of North America Sales Ron Rivera said. “The industry is clearly evolving, and IGT is leading the way. At the Southern Gaming Summit, our booth will be filled with the most interesting, untraditional and never-before-seen concepts in the industry today – innovations that are truly driving change in the gaming world and that are must-haves on any casino floor.”
IGT’s REELdepth slots have impressed operators and players nationwide. REELdepth slots use Multi-Layer Display technology, an ingenious layering of two or more Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs) that creates the visual effect of true depth without the use of 3-D glasses. The MLD technology allows the player to view and play dozens of their favorite games by switching from a 3-reel to 4-reel to 5-reel to video reel to poker within seconds – all on the same AVP machine. Featured REELdepth Multi Game themes include Pirates Bay Slots, Magic Butterfly Slots, Glitter & Gold Slots, Pink Diamonds Slots, Big Times Payroll Slots, Lucky Lines Slots and Three Kings Slots. The MegaJackpots product line will also showcase REELdepth games including the new Indiana Jones: Sankara Stones REELdepth theme, The Joker’s Wild Multi-Level Progressives theme featuring MLD technology, and the new Wheel of Fortune Advanced Slot, which also uses the 3-D technology.
Already a success in the market, IGT’s new MultiPLAY Video Slot lets players play one theme up to four times, simultaneously, on the same machine. The MultiPLAY Video Slot family showing will include well-known games Cleopatra, Wolf Run and Lil’ Lady, and new themes Hawaiian Sunset and Golden Eagle.
Other new MegaJackpot themes will be featured including Jeopardy! Multi-Level Progressives; I Dream of Jeannie Magic Carpet Ride; Elvis Multi-Level Progressives; and Scavenger Hunt. New Barcrest USA themes will include Greed is Good, Top Dollar and Dazzling Dollars.

Also in the spotlight will be the new suite of IGT machine models fueled by the power of the AVP platform, featuring the award-winning Service Window and sb NexGen.

It will allow operators to experience sbX Floor Manager in a bank-by-bank or partial-floor solution. sbX Media Manager will also be highlighted, along with the innovative Beverage on Demand function.
