A Look at International Game Technology (IGT) Casino Software in 2020

International Game Technology – otherwise known as IGT – is one of the oldest casino software companies we’ve profiled here on GamblingSites.com.

And, unlike the other developers we’ve covered thus far, IGT didn’t get their start producing online software, but actual physical slot machines for brick and mortar casinos.

Pre-2000s

IGT was founded in 1975, by William “The King of Slot Machines” Redd.

They didn’t go by IGT, though. Back then their name was A-1 Supply, and then Sircoma, and then IGT in 1981 – the same year the company went public on NASDAQ.

Redd sold the company to Gtech in 1986. He served on the board of directors until 1991, the same year the company went public on the NYSE.

It was also during the mid-to-late nineties that IGT started to expand internationally – they opened offices in Argentina and South Africa.

IGT also acquired two companies, Barcrest Gaming and Sodak Gaming.

IGT in the 21st Century

During the 2000s, they continued to acquire gaming companies, for example, Anchor Gaming in 2001-2002. Then they picked up Acres Gaming in 2003.

They also continued to expand internationally. By 2007 they were in the Mexican gaming market, as well as the Japanese, Chinese and Asian markets.

2010 was a great year for them. They picked up several rewards, including International Gaming Awards’ Best Slot Manufacturer of the Year, which was a repeat from the previous year. They followed that up with several more, which include:

  • Casino Player Magazine’s Best Gaming for 2010
  • Top honors in Global Gaming Business’ 8th Annual Gaming and Technology Awards
  • Winner of the Casino Enterprise Management Hospitality Operations Technology Awards
  • 35 different awards in Strictly Slots Best of Slots Awards

In 2010, IGT celebrated the production of their 2 millionth slot machine.

To cap things off, they started to focus on their online and mobile gaming efforts. They merged with WagerWorks (which they bought in 2005 for $90 million) and Million 2-1 into a single global division headquartered in San Francisco.

In 2011 they acquired Entraction, a poker network in Sweden. They also acquired Double Down in 2012, which is a Facebook game company based out of Seattle.

In 2014, Italian gaming equipment company Gtech acquired IGT for $6.4 billion. The two companies combined under a new holding name – they decided to drop Gtech and continue to use IGT.

They completed the merger in April 2015 under the new name: International Game Technology PLC.

IGT Today

Today IGT has more than 12,000 employees and are in more than 100 countries worldwide. In 2015, they did $4.69 billion in revenue and $56 million in profit.

International Game Technology Casino Games

Here are most of the games you can play from IGT. We say most because new games are always in development. By the time you read this, there’s a good chance IGT released a new title.

One other thing – the games below are a mixture of their online and offline games.

Fun Fact!

While we’re only focusing on their casino software, IGT does offer all forms of betting (virtual betting, spreads, exchange, racing, etc.), bingo, poker and lottery.

What’s neat about IGT is that you will find these titles in a Las Vegas brick and mortar casino. For example, our staff has played several of the titles in the list above, including:

  • Lord of the Rings
  • Sherlock Holmes:

    Game of Shadows

  • The Dark Knight
  • Monopoly
  • Jurassic Park

And so on.

Kitty Glitter is one of their most recognizable titles. You know IGT games are available when you see that machine.

Their slots – on the low end – have a 92% RTP. And on the high end, their slots return as much as 97.4%.

Progressives

One potential letdown is their progressive jackpots – or, rather, jackpot – they only have one – their MegaJackpots.

However, the upside is that several machines contribute to the jackpot. Those machines include: versions of Monopoly, Cluedo, Cleopatra, Siberian Storm, Wolf Run and Isle of Plenty.

Another bit of good news – IGT used to pay progressive jackpot winners their prize in installments over a 20-year period. However, it sounds as if they now pay the winner in full.

And, it looks like this jackpot is won every 4-10 weeks (based on the data we managed to find). The average win is nearly £830,000, while the biggest win was just shy of £2.2 million.

IGT Table Games

  • Baccarat
  • Caribbean Stud Poker
  • Texas Hold’em Bonus
  • Texas Hold’em Shootout
  • Three Card Second Chance

  • Grande Roulette
  • Hot Streak Roulette
  • Pinball Roulette
  • Triple Bonus Spin Roulette

While they cover many of the basics, IGT also offers a couple of unique table games you won’t find from other software providers.

For example, both Power Blackjack and Three Card Second Chance are one-off games. In fact, Three Card Second Chance was developed by gaming consultant and game analyst, Michael Shackleford, who is also known as The Wizard of Odds (of WizardOfOdds.com).

  • Triple/Five/Ten Play
  • Triple Chance Poker
  • 100 Play
  • All Star Poker
  • Super Times Pay
  • Spin Poker
  • Multi-Strike Poker
  • Ultimate X
  • Quick Quads

Compatibility

There’s no download required to play IGT’s games. You play them instead from your browser – either on your laptop, or from your mobile device. And because they use HTML5, more (mobile) devices are supported than if they used Flash or Java.

You can play their games for both free and real money, though your options are limited if you want to play for fun.

Conclusion

If you haven’t played an IGT slot machine, you’re missing out. The next time you play in a brick and mortar casino, you should check to see if they offer their games.

This is especially true for American gamblers, as IGT only works in regulated markets. Only international players, and possibly Americans in legal states, will be able to play their games online.

So, don’t pass on the chance to play one of their games.
