IGT : Slots & Games Providers
They don't follow the gaming trends – they create them.
IGT (International Game Technology), is a global leading end-to-end gaming company which specialises in creating and providing some of the biggest innovative slots and games titles to Casinos around the globe and to hundreds of online casinos and bingo sites for play on desktop and mobile.
IGT Slots & Games
International Game Technology – more snappily called IGT was set up way back in the 1950s when the company was known as A-1 Supply Co. They came to prominence in the 1980s and the company went stratospheric when new technology helped them develop video poker machines.
From there they began to develop some of the most awesome video games to be found, first in casinos and then on the internet.
The 1990s and on were a time of change for IGT and the gambling sector in general: the two went hand-in-hand. IGT moved overseas and bought out Barcrest Gaming, a United Kingdom fruit machine company that dominated its market before the acquisition and continued to do well afterwards.
It was in 2005 that IGT became a part of the online casino world, buying WagerWorks and bringing its popular land-based products to the digital world. But less than a decade later in 2014, IGT caught the gambling world by surprise as the Italian tech company Gtech acquired it for $6.4 billion.
After that, things stabilised for International Game Technology. The company continued to do well in public trading, and though it was bought out by Gtech, it was Gtech that gave up its name and fundamentally became a part of the IGT brand.
Their head offices are in Las Vegas, and Reno, Nevada – how cool is that for a gaming company? But they also have offices right across the world. The company have made more than two million actual slot machines, but are also fast developing their online games, especially in the UK.
One estimate states that IGT makes around half of all the slot games in the US – that is a lot of fun to be had! And, as you would expect, they know how to make a great game.
The company have perfected the art of adapting popular casino-floor games to the online world, which is why such old favourites like Wolf Run and Coyote Moon can be found and enjoyed online.
Some of the biggest and most popular games on the net are from IGT. So many bingo sites and casino headline slots are from IGT, such as Cleopatra, DaVinci Diamonds, Rainbow Riches and Kitty Glitter. They are also the name behind some of the most imaginative games out there, such as the Elvis slots, with their multiple bonus rounds, great animation and splendid music.
The first ever progressive slot was dreamed up by IGT; an awesome casino fruit machine called Nevada Megabucks, with a jackpot of one million dollars. So it is only natural that IGT lead the way in progressive online slots. Cleopatra, Monopoly and Cluedo have been pulling in gamers ever since they appeared.
IGT online slot games don’t need to be downloaded, which means you can play them in a browser or mobile, anywhere you have an internet connection.
IGT Slots Sites
IGT slots are massive, so as you would expect they have UK gaming partners of the same high stature. IGT provides slots to hundreds of bingo sites and casinos software companies such as Playtech, Gamesys, Nektan and Daub with top sites including:
- Virgin Games Sister Sites
- Grosvenor Casino
- Mecca Bingo
- Paddy Power Games
- Kitty Bingo Sister Sites
- The Sun Play
In summary, IGT's slots are remarkably fair and the qualities that contribute to IGT's success are obvious here.
