Any talk of companies driving the Gaming industry ahead cannot pass without the mention of IGT. The company has stood firm as a pace setter in the industry with production of creative products across diverse gaming markets. Their products include managing lottery services, electronic gaming machines, sport betting sites, instant and online lotteries among others.
What Is IGT
The real question should be: what is IGT doing differently to lead the pack in the gaming sector and remain relevant over years? Well, the company invests heavily in technology and boasts of a specialized personnel that develop its innovations. To validate its position as a leader, IGT bagged two awards in the Annual Global Gaming awards. Its SPHINX 4D game won the “Land-Based Gaming Innovation of the Year” category, and its Cardless connect mobile technology won the category of “Land-Based Product of the Year.”
The company’s reign does not seem to end any time soon. It is big and stable enough to develop and meet the market’s demand with cutting-edge technology. It is listed in the New York Stock Exchange as ‘IGT’ and it has enormous global presence with operations in over 100 countries employing 12,000 employees world wide. A look at its website, www.igt.com clearly demonstrates its prowess with a rich portfolio and demos for clients and users to try out.
What’s Cool About IGT’s Recent Innovation?
Both of IGT’s award winning innovations are game changers. IGT is the first company to develop a true 3D slot machine game, Sphinx 4D, that does not require 3D glasses. This literally immerses the player into the game. On the other hand, its Card-less connect mobile technology is also a first, allowing players to have a digital wallet on the floor of a casino. It will replace paper and cash transactions. It also allows players to card in and out of slot machines and the technology can be adapted on a smart phone making it convenient for the client.
In A Nut Shell
IGT has been growing steadily within the past decade. Its performance on the stock market has been good and these recent innovations has further improved its value as projected by experts. Sphinx 3D and Card-less connect mobile technology will fully roll out by early next year to casinos. With such game changing innovations, there is no disputing that IGT will hold the top position on the leader board for a while.
