IGT (International Game Technology) Ready for the Upcoming 2019 NIGA
The U.S. gaming giant International Game Technology (IGT) has confirmed its presence at the upcoming 2019 Indian Gaming Tradeshow and Convention (NIGA), scheduled to take place from April 3-4 in San Diego, California.
IGT will showcase its new games and gaming solutions at the event while demonstrating its commitment to its tribal gaming customers.
IGT will also showcase the capabilities of its PlayShot sports betting platform.
An Important Event
Speaking about the upcoming event, Renato Ascoli, IGT CEO North America, said the company would show its expanded portfolio of games, systems and solutions designed to propel growth. He pointed out that IGT had identified NIGA as an opportunity to deliver a technology showcase with new games, hardware and exciting evolutions in sports betting and tournament offerings.
PlayShot sports betting solution represents an ideal platform to capture opportunities within the rapidly growing sports betting market in the United States, which has been on the rise since the U.S. Supreme Court lifted the ban on this activity last year. IGT will also showcase other related technologies, such as QuickBet sports betting kiosk and the CrystalBetting Terminal.
But that’s not all IGT has prepared for NIGA, as the company will also showcase a number of its titles, including Griffin’s Throne and Fortune Coin, as well as Coin O Mania and Golden Jungle Grand on the CrystalCurve cabinet, and Wid Pirates on CrystalSlant cabinet.
IGT will also present a range of games made for the CrystalCurve cabinet, including Fortune Link, which has just recently hit the market. In addition to new titles, the company intends to display new Class II and CDS content and hardware, while premiering its S3000 XL cabinet for Class II content.
The company will also present a number of CDS-compatible games, such as Triple Fortune Dragon and Dangerous Beauty, on the Video XL gaming machines, as well as other CDS-compatible titles on CrystalDual 27 and CrystalCurve cabinets.
The CrystalSant Poker gaming machine will debut at this year’s NIGA. This hardware solution is intended for some of the most popular poker themes such as Game King and new Keno Games.
IGT will also showcase games featuring social gaming and skill-based elements, such as Chill Gaming’s Bloomtopia and Fortunes of the Brave, which offer the possibility of winning monetary and non-monetary rewards.
Bloomtopia offers a traditional slot game, combined with an option to build and nurture an in-display garden, while the Fortunes of the Brave represents a game of chance with certain elements of skill, again, with traditional video slot base game.
It will definitely be interesting at IGT’s booth, as the company will bring its Dynasty Electronic Table Games, including live baccarat, blackjack, sic bo, and roulette. Its NG offering will be rounded-up with Triple Zero Auto Roulette, baccarat, and the new triple hand blackjack.
Last, but definitely not the least are the new mobile systems Cardless Connect, Resort Wallet and Mobile Intelligent Offer, and the M5 content delivery solution, which enables operators to leverage a game screen to deliver bonus content and offer a variety of other conveniences.
