LONDON, Sept. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology PLC ("IGT") (NYSE: IGT) will unveil its entire 2016 Global Gaming Expo (G2E) portfolio today, including the new SPHINX 4D™ game on the CrystalCurve™ TRUE 4D™ cabinet, The Voice Video Slots, and the CrystalCurve™ cabinet, in booth 3659 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.  These marquee innovations will complement the Company's previously announced G2E portfolio which is comprised of nearly 400 gaming solutions.

"We saved a few big surprises for G2E, unveiling new innovations that have not been shown prior to the show.  IGT is bringing new technologies to casino partners that transform slot play with an entirely new sensory experience.  SPHINX 4D lets players touch, see and feel a game like never before," said Victor Duarte, IGT Global Chief Product Officer, Gaming. "Our new CrystalCurve Ultra cabinet inspired our designers to create a fun, immersive take on one of today's hottest shows with The Voice Video Slots.  Today we're also announcing the CrystalCurve cabinet with new content including our Betty White and Ghostbusters games, and the fan-favorite Fort Knox game."

  • IGT will take glasses-free 3D entertainment to a new level with the world debut of the SPHINX 4D game on the Company's new CrystalCurve TRUE 4D cabinet. Building on the international success of IGT's SPHINX 3D™ theme, the SPHINX 4D game combines award-winning glasses-free 3D technology, gesture recognition functionality, and never-before-seen-in-slots air haptic technology.  Air haptic technology gives players the chance to experience real-time tactile feedback from the game, while gesture recognition enables players to interact with and manipulate the game's 3D objects.  Players will be able to enjoy SPHINX 4D gameplay on the cabinet's 32-inch touchscreen display and its towering 50-inch Ultra HD, 4K curved upper display. The CrystalCurve TRUE 4D cabinet includes crowd detect capabilities that engage passing patrons and invite them to play the game, is equipped with a mobile device charging port, and is paired with an ergonomic, multi-media sound chair with player-adjustable settings.
  • IGT's new slot theme The Voice Video Slots transports players to the set of one of TV's most popular shows, which is viewed in more than 180 countries. Housed on the new CrystalCurve ULTRA cabinet, The Voice Video Slots delivers an immersive player experience with popular songs and video footage from the TV show, bank-wide win celebrations, and a symbol set that features several The Voice coaches from around the world including Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Ricky Martin. The Voice Video Slots incorporates the Show's iconic rotating chairs and Chair Choice button in the game's base and bonus play.
  • G2E marks the world debut for IGT's CrystalCurve™ cabinet. The hardware solution boasts a 43-inch curved Ultra HD screen that delivers pristine 4k resolution graphics. The CrystalCurve cabinet features IGT's signature Dynamic Player Panel with dual bash buttons.  G2E attendees can experience new IGT titles on the CrystalCurve cabinet such as Betty White's Story Time Video Slots, Betty White's Tall Tales Video Slots, Ghostbusters® Video Slots and Harley-Davidson® Video Slots. IGT will also introduce a revamped version of one of its most successful multi-level progressives of all time, Fort Knox® Video Slots. IGT will reveal Fort Knox Diamond Vault® Video Slots and Fort Knox Cleopatra® Video Slots. Both titles are linked, five-level progressives with mystery and symbol-driven bonuses.
