The History of IGT Slots Development
International Game Techonolgy PLC or better known as IGT has a very long history that stretches all the way back to 1975, the year it was founded. In the early days the company focused on land based casinos, and were the first to develop a slot machine with a $1 Million jackpot that could be linked across many different land based casinos. Down the years there have been many mergers and acquisitions that helped the company gain a foothold in markets across the globe. The most notable and successful acquisition was that of UK based WagerWorks back in 2005. WagerWorks currently supplies some of the biggest brand names in the world of online casinos, with over 100 real money-wagering options available. At the time of writing the company has offices in over 100 different countries. Its head office is now in London, but also has a major office in Navada, USA.
IGT is the worlds largest ‘end to end gaming company’. This means they provide multiple gaming solutions and not simply slots for different casino sites. The company is huge and is listed on the New York Stock exchange. In 2015 the company issued over 200 million shares, a number which shows the sheer the size of the business. An even more impressive number is revenue that was $4.7 Billion that generated an operating profit of $469 Million. It is no wonder the company is able to continually develop and deliver world-class slots and casino games. In fact, the total amount invested into new slots and casino games in 2015 was $277 Million. In 2015 IGT was actually acquired by Italian gaming giants GTech. Once the merger was agreed the company decided to stick with the IGT name.
IGT is more than a company that develops gaming solutions. It is a company that cares for the global company and looks to give something back to the community. The efforts of the company are generally split into three main areas – foster community initiatives, help create educational opportunities, and empower employee involvement. The company looks to help charities in its local areas by funding them for different community activities. There are no clear amounts as to what has actually been given to charity in the past, but there are always different initiatives being run to help those communities in which they operate.
