Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

International Game Technology PLC (“IGT”) (NYSE: IGT) today announced that the Company will reveal slot games inspired by America’s highest-rated daytime game show, The Price is Right®, and by celebrated entertainment icon, Adam Levine, today at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas. These top-tier games will be among the hundreds of IGT innovations on display in the Company’s G2E booth under the theme “Your Best Bet.”

“G2E is an opportunity for our customers to experience IGT’s The Price is Right and Adam Levine games for the first time and to visualize the fun and excitement that both brands can introduce to their casino floors,” said Dallas Orchard, IGT Chief Product Officer, Gaming. “Adding The Price is Right and Adam Levine slot games to IGT’s premium portfolio further strengthens our content roadmap for several of our premium cabinets, and continues IGT’s momentum in partnering with world-class licensed properties to create broadly appealing, unique casino experiences.”

Within IGT’s booth 3659, IGT will premiere three The Price is Right slot games — each one introducing something new to IGT’s premium portfolio and capturing unique aspects of the timeless game show. The three new The Price is Right slots games include:

  • The Price is Right Showcase Showdown Slots on the MegaTower™ Universal cabinet. The towering, three-reel, five-line game stands 11-feet tall and places lucky players in the middle of their own “Showcase Showdown” bonus events, where they can spin the Big Wheel for grand prizes.
  • The Price is Right Video Slots on the CrystalCurve™ ULTRA cabinet. The vibrant three-level progressive features vignettes with game show host Drew Carey and comes to life on the cabinet’s 32-inch, curved lower display and its 50-inch, curved upper display. The highly interactive game features many of the TV game show’s most popular games such as Punch A Bunch, Cliff Hangers, and Rat Race.
  • The Price is Right Plinko Slots on the CrystalDual™+ Stepper cabinet. This three-reel, five-line game gives players the chance to play the widely loved The Price is Right Plinko game for a chance to win big prizes on a classic, mechanical reel slot.

Music fans will delight in the sights and sounds of IGT’s Adam Levine Video Slots on the CrystalCurve ULTRA cabinet. The game leverages a vast collection of popular Adam Levine concert imagery and entertains players with its six jackpot levels. The game includes a jukebox feature that enables players to select their favorite chart-topping songs as they enjoy the game and play for its in-game collector guitar giveaway.

About the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board:

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is tasked to oversee all aspects of the state’s casino industry, including sports wagering offered currently at six locations. The oversight also includes other new gaming initiatives, expected to be launched in the coming months, which were created through Act 42 of 2017, an amendment to the Race Horse Development and Gaming Act.

The Commonwealth’s casino industry currently consists of 10 stand-alone and racetrack casinos in operation, along with the two smaller resort casinos.  These facilities collectively employ nearly 17,000 people and annually generate approximately $1.4 billion in tax revenue from slot machine and table games play. The largest portion of that money is used for property tax reduction to Pennsylvania homeowners.

Additional information about both the PGCB’s gaming regulatory efforts and Pennsylvania’s gaming industry can be found at gamingcontrolboard.pa.gov. You can also follow the agency on Twitter by choosing @PAGamingControl.
