The spotlight shines brightly upon a dazzling array of new product unveilings at IGT booth 2139:
IGT has partnered with the daytime TV destination for laughter and fun to create two compelling slot machines: The Ellen DeGeneres Show™ Featuring Ellen’s Dance Party Video Slots and The Ellen DeGeneres Show™ Featuring 12 Days of Giveaways Video Slots. Inspired by the Emmy® Award-winning daytime talk show, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the delightful duo of games will put players in the middle of their favorite “Ellen” moments and have them groovin’ in their seats as they play for big jackpot payouts. The widely anticipated games are housed on IGT’s impressive CrystalCore cabinet. Boasting exceptional sound and visuals on a pristine 42″ vertical touchscreen display, the pair of games presents an unparalleled player experience.
The perfect marriage of past and future: S3000™: Building upon the legendary success of IGT’s S2000 cabinet, the S3000 delivers a dynamic evolution of the spinning reel experience. Integrating stepper-style classic three-reel games and thrilling five-reel multiline games with powerful digital effects, S3000 provides a customizable light and sound spectacle that enables operators to sync an entire bank of machines. An extensive pipeline of new and classic themes including Double Diamond, Double Gold, Wild Cherry, Super Times Pay and more will be offered at launch.
Celebrating IGT’s commitment to ten more years of legendary Wheel of Fortune® games: the world’s most popular slot theme sets sail for the tropics with Wheel of Fortune® Jackpot Paradise. Housed on the gorgeous CrystalCore cabinet, Jackpot Paradise features a touch-screen interface and interactive bonus rounds. The five-reel game introduces a playful symbol set including kiwis, coconuts, beaches, bananas and more.
