Located at booth 3659, IGT will present a diverse and high-performing portfolio of games, systems, igaming, and sports betting solutions that number more than 200.

“We have the largest booth at G2E, in a position to show off all of the games, products, and solutions that we’ve been working on the last couple of years,” said Nick Khin, IGT COO, Global Gaming.

IGT will present a portfolio of multi-level progressive games across the premium and for-sale segments. It will have a new base game for the Money Mania video slots link with its second-level wide-area progressive jackpot via Sphinx Fire and Mistress of Giza, and for the Prosperity Link game via Ri Jin Dou Jin and Dian Shi Cheng Jin.

Another must-see MLP game will be Fort Knox Heist on the PeakCurve cabinet, which offers a new take on one of the company’s most internationally successful games of all time.

“We’re expecting a lot of customers. It can even be a record,” Khin said. “Last year was the first year after the pandemic (started) and of course, we were missing a lot of our international customers. This year, we’re expecting a big contingent of customers to come from Europe, Asia, and Latin America. And we’re expecting more customers from North America than last year. It’s shaping up to be a well-attended show.”

Some of IGT’s most anticipated MLP games will include Cats Wild Serengeti, inspired by the successful Wolf Run Eclipse game, and Fu Gi Hao Men II, a follow-up title to the namesake original known for its progressive-jackpot pick bonus and hold and spin mechanics.

IGT’s PeakDual 27 and PeakCurve cabinets will make their global trade-show debuts at G2E. The PeakDual 27 cabinet is an upright machine with two high-definition monitors, a 13.3-inch digital player panel, and the latest in lighting, audio, and convenience technologies. The PeakCurve cabinet includes a 49-inch C-curve display, ergonomic design, and 27-inch topper and is supported by a deep library of premium titles.

Another G2E highlight will be IGT’s award-winning and convenience-driving systems innovations, including the Resort Wallet and IGTPay cashless-gaming solutions, including a new point-of-sale integration and compelling player wallet-funding advancements.

“IGT’s G2E 2022 showcase builds on the positive results that we have generated across the gaming enterprise over the last 12 months and is guided by strong market demand and opportunity,” said Renato Ascoli, IGT CEO Global Gaming. “IGT’s G2E portfolio is as diverse as our customers’ needs and the players who enjoy our games.”

G2E attendees will also see new bonus delivery games themed from the company’s library, as well as the next-generation AVENTO in-game hardware. The company will also debut IntelligenEVO, the advanced VLT management system, and IGT ADVANTAGE, a cloud-based version of the casino-management system that elevates performance, uptime, and speed to market.

IGT PlayDigital will demonstrate its igaming-content portfolio, the capabilities of its remote game server (RGS) technology, and new user-engagement tools and other capabilities from the recent iSoftBet acquisition. Online games from IGT PlayDigital will include Majestic Megaways and Cash Eruption Fa Cai Shu, as well as the omnichannel WAP Wheel of Fortune Slots Triple Gold Gold Spin and a variety of new games, such as Gus’s Gold: Hold & Win. PlayDigital will also highlight the success and versatility of the IGT PlaySports team and technology.

At G2E, the company will advance the most popular slot theme of all time with the debut of several new Wheel of Fortune games, including Wheel of Fortune Diamond Deluxe slots on the CrystalWheel cabinet, Wheel of Fortune Lucky Coins slots on the Peak65 cabinet, and Wheel of Fortune Money Spins slots on the TRUE4D cabinet.

The popular TV game show “Let’s Make a Deal” will come to life in a new way via IGT’s Let’s Make a Deal video slots. They include a WAP Grand Deal progressive and incorporate imagery and mini-games from the namesake TV show.

IGT will also debut video and mechanical-reel Megabucks titles, including Megabucks Fortune Coin Respin on the Peak65 cabinet and Megabucks 3X Wild Diamonds on the S3000XL.

Coming off the recent release of the DiamondRS mechanical-reel cabinet, IGT will reveal a portfolio of new games for the hardware. Marquee mechanical-reel games in IGT’s booth will include Diamond Jackpots, Double Diamond, Fortune Storm, and the Double Chili Mania Respin game.

IGT will present a content portfolio at G2E composed of more than 40 total core video game themes on a range of form factors. That includes new takes on such games as Fortune Coin Extra, Lucky Larry’s Lobstermania 5, and a modernized version of Rich Girl slots. These brand evolutions will be accompanied by standalone core videos such as Fortune Owl, Money Mover Jackpots, Magic Treasures and Gold Party slots.

The IGT PlaySports platform and betting solutions will be showcased. The system offers customers a unique range of self-service betting technologies, such as the CrystalFlex Terminal, PeakBarTop with Sports Betting, PlaySports Pad, and the PlaySports Kiosks.

“IGT PlayDigital will present its most robust offering to date at G2E 2022,” said Enrico Drago, IGT CEO Digital & Betting. “Coming off a year of continued PlaySports and igaming growth and the strategic acquisition of iSoftBet, IGT PlayDigital has the industry’s strongest team and technology to help operators achieve growth in the sports betting and igaming sectors. IGT PlayDigital will present its impressive content portfolio for the Remote Game Server, its best-in-class self-service sports betting technologies, and much more.”

The IGT booth will also display new video poker games such as Fortune X Poker, Mega Hot Poker and Big City 4s Poker, along with the action-packed Haywire Poker Tournament.

It will have the Hybrid Baccarat Electronic Table Games, featuring random number generated (RNG) multi-games, innovative merchandising hardware, and the all-new Dynasty View terminal.

In addition are advancements in IGT’s Class II and CDS Class II portfolio with themes Magic Gong and Triple Fortune Dragon Rising, along with expanded content for Historical Horse Racing that is compatible with multiple HHR system products and anchored in themes such as Shamrock Stars and Caerus Cash Eruption.

Also at G2E are the next-generation VLT titles that are built on proven mechanics and localized play preferences, with themes such as Greenback Attack and Big City 5’s Diamond Jackpot.
