Las Vegas is where the studio was founded. Beginning in the 1950s, it officially went public in 1981, after its electronic video poker machine became a huge success. Since then, IGT Gaming achievements have continued to grow.
The official website lists the acquisition of Electronic Data Technologies in 1984 as one of the company’s major decisions. This led to the revolutionary introduction of computerized player tracking software, which is now used everywhere. It was around 1985 when IGT also launched the world’s very first progressive jackpot system for slot machines. In 1992, the manufacturer’s addresses already included not only the Las Vegas headquarters, but also the divisions in Europe and, two years later, Argentina and South Africa joined the network as well.
One of most famous slot machines, the Wheel of Fortune progressive, was released in 1996, and today, two decades later, it is still among the top games of all time.
As progress required more and more at the beginning of the new millennium, International Game Technology introduced its first multi-player table game platforms in 2006, focusing primarily on such content as baccarat and roulette. Four years later, the company celebrated production of the two millionth slot machine.
Over the years, the supplier has received numerous awards for its products and services, including recognition from International Gaming Awards as the Best Slot Manufacturer of the year, which was received by the company more than once.
UK is where the headquarters are today, and there is more than just the one London office. The operating offices can be found in countries like Italy and in the USA as well as in Australia, Asia, Canada, and Latin America. Over 12,000 professionals have found themselves progressing in careers, and the corporation continues to expand.
