LAS VEGAS, May 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology (NYSE: IGT) will bring fun and excitement to Biloxi with its latest games and systems products at the Southern Gaming Summit on May 4-5 at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum & Convention Center in booth 704.
"IGT is excited to bring the industry's very best games and systems to our customers at the 2011 Southern Gaming Summit," said Ron Rivera, senior vice president of U.S. sales for IGT. "With both the casino operator and the player in mind, our booth will showcase the most exciting games with the hottest brands in the market today. And operators will see the latest tools available from our revolutionary systems product line."
IGT's well-known MegaJackpots® product line will be in full force with big brand titles, including some of the most recognizable names in popular culture. Following on the heels of the blockbuster premiere of the Sex and the City™ slot machine, it's time for part two. The newest edition of this extremely popular theme is Sex and the City Big Diamonds!™, which combines the glitz and glamour of the hit HBO® television series with exciting MultiPLAY action.
The Sex and the City Big Diamonds!™ action starts in the base game with its four unique game interfaces, each themed to one of the show's leading ladies. Game play includes a random feature presented by Mr. Big, in which he awards wilds with a shower of diamonds over the active game reels. Bonus Play features five progressive bonus levels and four character-specific bonuses. Carrie's The Right to Shoes bonus features a new and exciting twist, as players can accept or reject a bonus offer to keep playing for a bigger bonus outcome. Charlotte's Glamorous Gifts bonus awards players a virtual wheel spin, and Miranda's Retail Therapy bonus awards shopping bags filled with credits and multipliers. In Samantha's Glimmer Ring bonus, players select from precious gems to populate the top box as a ring moves back and forth across the screen, highlighting one gem and awarding the associated credits with the multiplier.
Showing great initial performance numbers, the new Dirty Dancing® Slot features the iconic characters Baby and Johnny (played by Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey) in a game infused with nostalgia, famous songs and video clips. Based on the classic film by Lionsgate™ (NYSE: LGF), this fun MegaJackpots® video slot offers players a plethora of big win possibilities on five progressive award levels. The base game includes a new randomly initiated feature, Spin Magic™, which selects one of the minor symbols and turns it wild for a given spin creating player anticipation. The symbol-initiated Dirty Dancing® Bonus includes two pick bonuses, Mambo Magic and Time of My Life, and the Staff Quarters free games bonus. Memorable music and clips from the movie play during the bonuses taking players back to that fateful summer of 1963 at the Catskill Mountains resort.
IGT will showcase its new Universal Slant machine at the Southern Gaming Summit. Designed to create an immersive player experience, the Universal Slant is available as a 22-inch MLD® (Multi-Layer Display™), 23-inch LCD, or with mechanical 3-, 4-, or 5-reel configurations. This new machine model features streamlined ergonomics, a premium audio experience and has been developed to give the player more personal space.
A number of new and innovative IGT games will be on the Universal Slant machine including IGT's new Hot Roll slot. This game is a traditional player favorite, featuring exciting new, interactive "Hot Roll" action. When the Hot Roll feature is activated, the player rolls the virtual dice by touching them on the MLD® monitor and throwing them across the screen; dice can travel from the base game to the top box depending on how and where players throw them.
IGT's Core games continue to offer an unmatched library of video and spinning-reel slots and joining this lineup is the new Multi-Color Multipliers™. This banked concept combines intriguing, colorful reel lighting, entertaining music and LCD top box interaction over a bank of popular mechanical reel games to energize the casino floor and enhance the player experience. These special Multi-Color Multipliers™ can be found on the four exciting and unique banked base games—Hell's Bells™, White Pearl™, Hawaiian Diamond® and Tiki Beach®—and are set to bring new thrills to the slot floor. During each spin of the Free Games, the Multi-Color Multipliers™ light up the reels in red, green, blue or white, and multiply wins up to 4X depending on which color is lit.
IGT will also showcase its new OnCore Progressives™ Diamond Nights™ Slots which add a 3-reel, communal, mystery-driven progressive to a bank of machines. Only from IGT, OnCore Progressives™ Diamond Nights™ Slots are specifically designed to drive performance on the casino floor and bring new excitement to 3-reel, single-line games.
