IGT Invites Australasian Gaming Expo Attendees to “Play Among the Stars”
LONDON, U.K. – July 24, 2018 – International Game Technology PLC (“IGT”) (NYSE: IGT) today announced that the Company will present a range of performance-driven, market-attuned innovations in its booth at the Australasian Gaming Expo under the theme “Play Among the Stars.” The three-day event will take place Aug.14-16 in Sydney, Australia and presents a platform for IGT to reveal new products within its revitalized Crystal hardware family, and to demonstrate the Company’s progress in delivering regionally attuned games and solutions.
IGT’s “star studded” AGE portfolio will be anchored in the CrystalDual®-i 27 cabinet, and will be complemented by exciting themes such as the Star Stax™ and Wheel Shot™, games, and the internationally celebrated Fortune Gong™ multi-level progressive. The Company will also spotlight its Multistar™ games and gaming management systems within the Company’s lively AGE stand.
“A focal point of IGT’s AGE stand will be the Crystal cabinet series which has now evolved to include the CrystalCurve-i, the CrystalSlant and the evolution of our most successful hardware in the region, the CrystalDual-i cabinet,” said Andrew Hely, IGT Managing Director of Asia Pacific. “Over the last 12 months IGT has made measurable progress in localizing our content and services to maximize opportunities in Australia and New Zealand with solutions that can drive growth for our customers.”
Building on the success of IGT’s CrystalCurve-i games such as Fortune Fury™ and Wild Fury®, IGT will introduce the Star Stax game – an innovative game that includes a unique bonus feature that is triggered when the game’s star symbols align in gameplay.
Another IGT “star on the rise” game is the Wheel Shot game with its Wild Gold™ and Hero of Greece™ base games. Housed on a variety of Crystal series cabinets, Wheel Shot features an interactive bonus where players spin in-game wheels to collect rewards and earn an opportunity to the title’s coveted jackpot wheel.
IGT will also showcase the Fortune Gong game, with base game titles Dragon Dynasty™, Guardians Treasure®, and Phoenix Rising™. These new showcase games will progressively be compatible with the entire range of Crystal cabinets, Fortune Gong can be configured as a linked progressive game, or a standalone game.
IGT’s player-favorite, Multistar games will be another must-see within IGT’s stand. Featuring a range of multi-game, multi-denomination options to choose from, IGT will launch Multistar Big 3 – reprising the game of Bingo - and Multistar Hot Dollars game packs.
