International Game Technology PLC (IGT) recently announced that the Otoe-Missouria Tribe deployed IGT's Spin-Splosion! video slot tournament technology at five 7 Clans Oklahoma casinos, making Otoe-Missouria the first operator in the U.S. to offer inter-casino Spin-Splosion! tournaments. Otoe-Missouria Tribe-owned casinos 7 Clans First Council, Perry, Paradise, Chilocco, and Red Rock in Oklahoma now offer patrons the opportunity to compete against players at any of these resorts in spirited Spin-Splosion! video slot tournaments.

"We are happy to be the first operator in the U.S. to offer players inter-casino slot tournaments via IGT's Spin-Splosion! tournament solution and extend the excitement of tournament play beyond a single casino," said Bruce Barnett, 7 Clans Casinos CEO.

"By adding Spin-Splosion! to its casino floors, Otoe-Missouria is introducing a new level of competitive slot entertainment to Oklahoma," said Nick Khin, IGT chief commercial officer, gaming. "This turnkey tournament solution gives Otoe-Missouria the option of enhancing the player experience on IGT's CrystalSlant cabinet with exciting tournament play across five casino properties at once."

The Spin-Splosion! tournament solution is powered by IGT Tournament Manager 5.0 solution, and was deployed throughout the five Otoe-Missouria properties on 42 CrystalSlant gaming machines. As part of the deployment, Otoe-Missouria qualified to participate in IGT's Spin-Cation promotion. Spin-Cation enables Otoe-Missouria to send 15 of its valued players on an eight-day Eastern Caribbean cruise aboard the Carnival Breeze. Lucky players will be granted an entry into the ship's grand finale Spin-Cation Tournament, which has a guaranteed increasing prize pool that starts at $100,000.
