IGT is one of the best known casino gaming companies in the United States. They have been around for many years and most players will be aware of their great games which can be found in casinos around the world.
IGT slots are particularly popular in Las Vegas casinos. Top titles in Vegas include Cleopatra, Pharaoh's Fortune, Double Diamond, Wolf Run and DaVinci Diamonds.
The company started way back in the 1950’s and were a huge player in the 'golden days' of Las Vegas, when Frank Sinatra ruled the show. The company become public many years later, when they had their IPO in 1981.
More recently, IGT was taken over and has become part of Scientific Gaming, along with WMS and Bally. They continue to market their products under the IGT brand and produce many different types of casino games, including slots and video poker.
Traditionally, the thing that has set IGT apart from other companies int he gaming world has been their commitment to innovation and their desire to be at the top of the pack from a technology standpoint at all times. This was true even before their IPO in 1981 by being the first company to offer a video poker machine.
In 1984, IGT bought up Electron Data Technologies and with them on board were the first company to introduce database driven casino rewards programs which help casinos track customers.
Two years later, they introduced the Players Edge video poker machine which is still used to this day in many areas of the United States were video poker is legal.
IGT also introduced their first computer controlled slot machine and networked jackpot system the same year, leading the pack throughout this time with top notch gaming for the time as well as some of the most easily controlled machines ever made available to casinos.
Other innovations that IGT is responsible for include features we take for granted today. One such feature is the bill accepter that virtually every slot machine has these days. This feature, when introduced in 1993, was one of the major factors in IGT establishing themselves in the early nineties as an innovator as well as a recognized stock on the New York Stock Exchange for their consistent and excellent performance.
Another innovation that virtually all machines have today is the EZ Pay ticket system, or equivalent. This allows customers to cash out virtually any amount on a machine without having to wait for someone to cash it out for them as was required in times past. Instead, a ticket prints out from the machine which then can be taken to a banker and cashed in or instead played on another machine.
On top of this, IGT is the owner of the popular online casino software provider Wagerworks which ultimately gives online casino players access to the same games that IGT provides to brick and mortar casinos.
Since 2005, when IGT acquired Wagerworks, Wagerworks has become one of the top software providers for online casinos, mostly because their game offerings are so diverse, just like IGT’s offerings in casinos.
The most popular game which IGT has produced over the years is often debated. Some say it is the Wheel of Fortune slot machine franchise, but others claim it to be Cleopatra slots. In many ways, both might be true, with Cleo being the number one single machine, but Wheel of Fortune being the biggest 'franchise' or brand, which features many different slots.
The Wheel of Fortune set of titles are the most popular casino slot machine games in the world and the original Wheel of Fortune slot machine was the first to combine not only the theme of a TV series or movie into the game but some of the features of the show into the slot machine game play.
Over the years, IGT have produced so many wonderful and memorable games, it would be impossible to list them all. With so many great games over the years, it seems that every player has their special favorites and particular titles that mean something to them.
For example, Lobstermania is a game that is special to me. It is one fo the first games I ever played in Vegas and I was really taken by the beautiful cartoon graphics and humor. If you have never played it or would like to re-live some memoroes, our Lobstermania review page includes a free game you can enjoy without needing to download or install software.
Other classics include Money Storm, Little Green Men, Wolf Run, Pharaoh's Fortune, Texas Tea. Some titles were less well known, but still capture the hearts of many. Does anyone remember Fortune Cookie? Ot Texas Tina?
To play the older classics, it is worthwhile taking a trip off-strip in Vegas, or visiting a place like Atlantic City, where a lot of the older games remain. I like it when a casino keeps some of it's old games and AC is really good for that, especially if you go to some of the upstairs areas.
We hope you enjoy our free IGT slots and also, the memories of some of the classics we have listed here.
