Originally founded in 1981, the company didn’t go public until 1990. However, even before 1981, the company provided slots for land-based casinos and built up quite the reputation for itself.
Since then, IGT has grown into the leading provider of slots and other casino games in the world, with an annual revenue constantly going over several billion dollars.
Their portfolio of games is impressive, to say the least. The decades of vast experience behind the company mean one thing – top-notch games. As the world’s best casino software developer, IGT has produced more than a few hit slots and casino games as well as skill games, progressives, VLT games, and even multiplayer games. It really is quite an impressive resume.
Even though the company doesn’t release games as often as Novomatic or Microgaming for example, whenever they do release a new product in the ‘wild’, it’s almost certain to be a hit. Among the most popular slots that came from IGT are Arctic Fox, Cleopatra, 100 Pandas, Cluedo, Breaking Bad, Da Vinci Diamonds, and Golden Goddess Mega, but you can be sure there are more than a few hundred slots with perfect gameplay and graphics played all around the world.
It’s not just the slots – this game provider has a significant collection of classic table casino games. The list includes blackjack, roulette, and a wide range of video poker games including popular variations such as Deuces Wild and Jacks or Better.
Furthermore, the company also offers different gaming products such as lottery as well as professional gaming services.
History and Licenses
The multinational gaming company has its headquarters in London but also has offices in Las Vegas, Providence, and Rome. Throughout its history, it changed its name more than a few times. Originally known as IGT, the company was acquired by Lottomatica S.p.A. In 2006, Lottomatica acquired GTech, later changing the name of the company to GTech.
However, after acquiring American software developer International Game Technology in 2015, the company adopted its well-known name IGT once again.
With operations in dozens of countries around the world, it has more than a few licenses, with the last one coming from the Nevada Gaming Commission, making it even more popular than before. This provider has also won its fair share of awards over the years, establishing its dominance as the world’s leading casino technology provider.
