For IGT, it’s all about compelling content and stunning hardware that will drive performance on its customers’ casino floors. Casino International had the opportunity to learn more about the company’s commitment to its customers’ success, its market-attuned content strategy, and what is next in IGT’s Multi-Level Progressive pipeline.
There is nothing that fuels player excitement quite like a Multi-Level Progressive (MLP) game – and there is no one who has more MLP expertise than IGT.
From the recent launch of Fort Knox Video Slots in more than 20 countries, to new MLP titles on the Company’s CrystalCurve and CrystalDual 27 cabinets, IGT’s renewed commitment to MLPs and momentum in this product segment is undeniable.
IGT’s Fort Knox Video Slots continue to see success across casino floors around the world. Most recently, this revamped version of the player-favourite theme made its debut at several casinos throughout Mexico. “Fort Knox is one of IGT’s most internationally celebrated and widely-placed multi-level progressive slot games of all time and we are thrilled that this game is expanding its footprint to new countries such as Mexico and Portugal,” said Dallas Orchard, IGT Chief Product Officer, Gaming.
The company launched the latest edition of this exciting game on the stunning CrystalCurve gaming machine with four different base games: Cleopatra, Diamond Vault, Majestic Gorilla, and Twin Win. At G2E, IGT is expected to showcase even more titles for the exciting game family.
Coming off of the success of this powerhouse game, IGT is launching the next title in its MLP pipeline – Fortune Gong Video Slots. This MLP game features three exciting base games in Fortune Gong Dragon, Fortune Gong Phoenix and Fortune Gong Tiger, plus an engaging Prize Disk feature to keep players engaged.
To ensure that this new title is met with just as much enthusiasm as Fort Knox, the company has integrated player-favorite mechanics and market-attuned components. “With Fortune Gong, we combined some of the most successful core game features along with market-attuned math models to meet player preferences of the individual regions,” added Orchard.
IGT uses its decades of experience in the MLP space to ensure that both operator and player expectations are met. This can include making adjustments to the game such as different graphics depending on the region. “By offering operator-configurable features such as pay tables, denominations, and jackpot levels we are creating a localised gaming experience designed with both the operator and player in mind,” said Orchard.
Strong Content Roadmap on Stunning Hardware
Continuing to release fresh MLP content along with long-term support for the CrystalCurve and CrystalDual cabinets is a priority for the company. “We believe in providing our customers with advanced visibility to our deep MLP content roadmaps on the CrystalCurve cabinet. We want our customers to have the confidence that their IGT hardware is supported by a library of world-class games,” said Orchard. One such title is IGT’s new Golden Goddess Link Video Slots featuring Golden Goddess Tullia and Golden GoddessValeriaVideo Slots. The relaunch of this storied IGT title will be one of many focal points within IGT’s G2E booth.
IGT’s rich content library of internationally relevant MLPs looks spectacular on the CrystalCurve gaming machine. The striking cabinet features an industry-leading, ultra-high definition, 4K resolution screen, Dynamic Player Panel (DPP) with dual bash buttons, a USB charging port, and more.
This pristine cabinet delivers an exceptional player experience and stands out on casino floors with its sharp design.
“IGT continues to receive positive feedback from our customers with regards to the strong performance of the CrystalCurve gaming machine and its diverse content library,” said Orchard.
The company also has a strong MLP content roadmap for its latest evolution of the Crystal series, the CrystalDual 27 gaming machine. The gorgeous cabinet features dual, high-definition, 27-inch displays, the option for bank-wide synchronized lighting, and more.
“We are especially proud of the CrystalDual 27 gaming machine. The eye-catching cabinet supports an extensive library of titles including many ‘Proven Performer’ games and supports a wide range of exciting MLP titles such as Cash Climb Video Slots featuring Greek Glory and Cash Climb Heavenly Treasures,” added Orchard.
Orchard concluded by reinforcing the company’s commitment to content. “At IGT, we are committed to delivering the best games on the best hardware with a strategic, market-attuned approach, and we look forward to executing upon that commitment by delivering unparalleled gaming excitement to our customers and their players.”
