LAS VEGAS, Oct. 20 /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 introduce its new Megabucks® Wild Sapphires™ MultiPLAY Multi-Level Progressives game at the 2010 Global Gaming Expo (G2E) on Nov. 16–18 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

"With its life-changing jackpots, the Megabucks® game continues to be a player favorite," said Ron Rivera, IGT senior vice president of North America sales. "This year IGT brings its biggest and best Megabucks® game to the market, featuring MultiPLAY, 13 progressive awards and a large top award."

Megabucks® Wild Sapphires™ MultiPLAY Multi-Level Progressives combine a popular player favorite with a new three-game MultiPLAY interface that allows multiple games to be played simultaneously for more game action and increased chances to win. Thirteen in-house progressive awards and a Wide Area Progressive jackpot offer multiple award possibilities. Each of the 13 in-house progressives is triggered by a combination of three symbols on any of the three games in play. The unique Step Up feature adds 2X, 3X, 4X and 5X multiplier symbols from the first and second base games to the MegaGame for increased winning opportunities. And when a max bet is played, there is a chance to win the Megabucks® top jackpot award.

Making his debut with the Megabucks® family is Bill Cash, who made his first appearance in the popular Top Dollar® Reel MultiPLAY Slots. With his charismatic charm and overflowing enthusiasm, he guides players through the game action.

In addition, this is the first Megabucks® game to feature photos of previous Megabucks® winners as part of the top box attract screens. With a life-changing jackpot ranging from $1 million to $10 million depending on the jurisdiction, players who take home the top prize will be forever changed.
