LAS VEGAS and SEATTLE, Aug. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology PLC's ("IGT") (NYSE: IGT) DoubleDown Casino® social gaming website raised the stakes today by introducing its new jackpot feature that gives players the chance to win more than two billion chips. 

Initially available on the classic Wolf Run™ slot game, a pair of jackpots is launching on the DoubleDown Casino website: the Super Jackpot, which grows quickly, and hits more frequently; and the Mega Jackpot™ feature, where a player can win more than two billion chips.  When a jackpot is due to hit soon, it will 'go hot' and the graphics will catch on fire, letting players know that they should spin to win before someone else does.

"Many players love slot machines because they offer the chance to win jackpots, so it's a natural extension of DoubleDown Casino that we introduce jackpots," said Joe Sigrist, IGT SVP and GM of DoubleDown Casino.  "Providing the chance for any player to win more than two billion chips from a DoubleDown Casino Mega Jackpot makes our best-in-class game portfolio even more fun and exciting."
