IGT started way back in the 1950s but become a public company in 1981. They have a huge land-based presence with their slot games found at many of the world’s land-based casinos. They are responsible for some of the most played slots of all time which can be found online too.
When it comes to slots, Cleopatra is probably the most famous slot ever and has achieved legendary status – other slots like Da Vinci Diamonds and Pharaoh’s Fortune are very popular at bricks and mortar casinos as well as online casinos. They offer a huge range of games with progressive jackpot titles and branded slots.
IGT is better known in the land-based environment that online – if you’ve been to an actual casino, IGT slot machines will be available there. As a result, they actually have developed 1,000s of slot games! With their games available across the world, they have naturally made the jump online and are considered 1 of the major slot providers.
Their most popular slot game is Cleopatra which was released in land-based casinos quite a while ago. Set in ancient Egypt, this 5 reel, 20 payline classic is about the Queen Cleopatra and has a certain charm to it. The Cleopatra Bonus feature gives you up to 180 free spins in total with a 3x multiplier – if the Cleopatra wild is part of a win, it doubles the multiplier up to 6x. This can lead to wins of 10,000 times your stake on each free spin.
2 other hugely popular slots are Da Vinci Diamonds and Pharaoh’s Fortune. When it comes to Da Vinci Diamonds, it’s a Renaissance period inspired game based on the famous painter. It’s famous for the Tumbling Reels feature which means you can win again and again from each spin – many slot providers have used this concept and called it something else (i.e. Avalanche Reels, Cascading Reels etc). The Free Spins feature can also give you up to 300 free spins.
As for Pharaoh’s Fortune, it takes you to ancient Egypt and has The Bangles’ Walk Like An Egyptian song as you spin the reels. Highly volatile and offering up to 999 free spins with a 6x multiplier, it’s a must if you like the theme.
IGT offers you the chance to win a life-changing progressive jackpots– games such as MegaJackpots Wheel of Fortune On Air, MegaJackpot Ocean Belles, MegaJackpots Golden Goddess, MegaJackpots Star Lanterns and MegaJackpots Isle O’ Plenty come with the chance to win at least £500,000 at random. The games also offer cutting edge bonus features and gameplay.
IGT slots are not as commonly found as games from NetEnt or Play ‘N Go for example – this makes them more appealing in my opinion. They offer low, medium and high variance slots covering all themes imaginable. They have games using a Level Up Plus feature where you can unlock more bonus features and bigger potential wins the more you play. All their slots are in HTML5 meaning they can be played on all devices whatever your choice.
