As the world’s largest gaming tradeshow draws near, International Game Technology (IGT) is gearing up to showcase its innovations in gaming technology and casino entertainment, with new titles and content, fresh spins on classic core titles and systems designed to streamline operations and enhance the player experience. Additionally, IGT will spotlight how loyal mobile players can become devoted casino patrons via IGT’s DoubleDown Casino Partner Program.
IGT is ready to wow fans of the MegaJackpots series with a lineup of new titles. Inspired by box office and TV successes, IGT will debut three new games that are sure to have fans flocking to the casino floor:
• Inspired by the pop culture movie Footloose, this MegaJackpots game puts players right in the heart of their favorite 1980’s film. This multi-level progressive video slot features five spinning reels and boasts up to 30 paylines, and is packed with iconic imagery, hit music and main characters from the nostalgic film.
• Players who “ain’t afraid of no ghosts,” will find enjoyment in IGT’s new Ghostbusters Triple Slime. This sequel follows up the popular Ghostbusters Who Ya Gonna Call slot, drawing fans of the classic 1980’s movie, allowing them to trap ghosts for big wins on three bonus wheels. Slimer will also award credits in the scatter bonus, adding even more player interaction on this Center-Stage Duo hit.
• Fans of the supernatural will be delighted to find the newly released MegaJackpots True Blood title on the G2E floor. Inspired by the HBO hit TV series, True Blood brings to life the series’ most adored characters including Sookie, Lafayette and more. In this MultiPLAY game, True Blood offers three bonus opportunities to entertain players: free games, pick bonus and the multi-level progressive. Additionally, this game features an array of Wild symbols, adding interest to player paylines.
One of the most important core-releases this year will be IGT’s Winner’s Choice. Players will welcome this new title as it allows slot enthusiasts to select from six of IGT’s most played core games, including Wolf Run, Cleopatra and Siberian Storm, and play any mix of four games at once. Winner’s Choice boasts an array of bonuses including a two-level progressive. Showgoers can also look forward to the debut of Sweet Three—the playful trio of IGT’s slots—Candy Bars, Cats ‘N’ Dogs and Takes the Cake. Players will enjoy playing all three of these titles simultaneously for big win potential. Showgoers should also keep an eye out for IGT’s Game Changer series. With the ability to be tailored to specific player demographics, the IGT Game Changers are a smart solution to enhancing the player experience.
IGT will also spotlight the highly successful DoubleDown Casino Partner Program. Already a success in nearly 50 casinos around the globe, this convergence program makes the full catalogue of titles offered via the social gaming site DoubleDown Casino such as Da Vinci Diamonds and Cleopatra available on the participating casino’s website. More than 1.7 million people from around the world play in the DoubleDown Casino every day. The DoubleDown Casino Partner Program offers a collaborative solution for expanding operators’ reach for new players and ultimately creating increased customer loyalty and retention.
Finally, operators can look forward to the debut of Tournament Manager, 3.0, the latest evolution of this dynamic technology which can now be applied to video poker terminals.
