LAS VEGAS, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology (NYSE: IGT), a global leader in creating the major games that players love and the network systems that improve the player experience, will showcase Star Wars Droid Hunt at the 2010 Global Gaming Expo (G2E), Nov. 16-18 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

"Players love our Star Wars games and Star Wars Droid Hunt is the biggest and best game to date," said Ron Rivera, IGT senior vice president of North America sales. "Packed with huge brand appeal, engaging bonuses and fantastic graphics, this game is poised to be a hit on casino floors."

Star Wars Droid Hunt, IGT's new MegaJackpots® Slot, is coming to a galaxy near you. The game virtually takes players far, far away, and the recognizable Star Wars theme makes the game attractive to a diverse demographic.

Star Wars Droid Hunt allows for simple game play, multiple bonus opportunities, frequent feature activity and sustainable game sessions. The Star Wars saga transformed cinema, and this MegaJackpots® game is set to revolutionize the casino floor, attracting movie fans and players alike. Familiar Star Wars sounds and images enhance the player experience with strong brand appeal and entertaining features. Plus, a wide area progressive top award appeals to players seeking a big jackpot win.

The intergalactic excitement starts in the base game, where after any reel spin, a Star Destroyer may appear and trigger the Star Destroyer Wild feature where TIE fighters blast anywhere from one to 10 symbols on the reels making them wild.

Four interactive bonuses create a high-energy game with lots of action to engage players. Three bonus symbols trigger the Droid Hunt feature, which then instructs players to press a red button that awards one of the following four bonuses: Droid Match, Astromech Free Spins, Ion Blaster or the Tusken Raider.

In the Droid Match Bonus, players pick a Jawa, which has an assigned droid credit value. Then, by matching two droids, players win the credit value for that Droid times a bonus multiplier of up to 10X. During this bonus round, each door selected without a match increases the bonus multiplier.

The Astromech Free Spins bonus lets players select an Astromech Droid to reveal a symbol that locks in place each time it appears on a video reel during the free spins. The bonus win is awarded after all spins are completed and is based on MultiWay® combinations, which feature 243 ways to win.

Players can win up to 5,000 credits times the bet per line in the Ion Blaster Bonus. R2D2 is shot from the ion blaster to award the credit value. And in the Tusken Raider Bonus, players can win up to 1,000 credits times the bet per line as the Tusken Raider shakes his gaffi stick to award the credit value.

Star Wars Droid Hunt features IGT's MEGAfx Surround Chair, which wrap players in comfort and delivers seat-shaking sound to bring the galactic action alive.
