IGT, or to give it its full name International Game Technology PLC, is one of the largest slots software companies in the world. They are responsible for the design and manufacture of literally hundreds of different gaming titles. Most notably they are behind some of the biggest slot games available. They’ve developed such titles as Avatar, Back to the Future, Family Guy, Jurassic Park and Batman – Dark Knight Rises amongst many others. But what is likely to appeal to most slots players are the progressive jackpot games. At the time of writing nearly $6 Billion in payments have been made.
All recent games have been developed with both the mobile and desktop slots player in mind. This is because all new titles have been designed and developed using the latest in HTML5 technology. This enables the company to provide its mobile customers all the unique gaming features you’d expect along with great graphics. Gone are the days of mobile players simply pressing spin, now games offer all the bonus rounds available to those using a desktop PC.
Founded back in 1975 the company focused on land based casinos, especially in the development of big money slots. They were the first company to have a slot machine with a $1 Million jackpot. This jackpot was then linked across many land based casinos – which at the time was ground breaking. Since then the company has been in numerous acquisitions to help it grow and the biggest of these was the purchase of WagerWorks in 2005. WagerWorks is the name that most online casino players are familiar with having developed a string of household name gaming titles. At the time of writing this division of IGT has developed over 100 different titles. The company has grown to such a huge size that it has offices if over 100 countries across the globe.
IGT is a company that is serious about developing and designing new games for customers. In 2015 a total of $277 Million was invested purely into the development of new slot games. It is not surprising the company has funds to invest when the revenue is in excess of $4.7 Billion. A number far beyond the comprehension of most casino players.
But IGT doesn’t purely develop slot games. It also offers land based casinos different slot terminals as well offering different lottery games. Essentially think of any form of gambling software and IGT is likely to be involved somewhere along the line. This is why the company is considered to be the worlds largest ‘end to end gaming company’.
