LONDON, June 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology PLC ("IGT") (NYSE:IGT) today announced that the Otoe-Missouria Tribe deployed IGT's Spin-Splosion!® video slot tournament technology at five 7 Clans Oklahoma casinos, making Otoe-Missouria the first operator in the U.S. to offer inter-casino Spin-Splosion! tournaments. Otoe-Missouria Tribe-owned casinos 7 Clans First Council, Perry, Paradise, Chilocco, and Red Rock in Oklahoma now offer patrons the opportunity to compete against players at any of these resorts in spirited Spin-Splosion! video slot tournaments.
"We are happy to be the first operator in the United States to offer players inter-casino slot tournaments via IGT's Spin-Splosion! tournament solution and extend the excitement of tournament play beyond a single casino," said Bruce Barnett, 7 Clans Casinos Chief Executive Officer.
"By adding Spin-Splosion! to its casino floors, Otoe-Missouria is introducing a new level of competitive slot entertainment to Oklahoma," said Nick Khin, IGT Chief Commercial Officer, Gaming. "This turnkey tournament solution gives Otoe-Missouria the option of enhancing the player experience on IGT's CrystalSlant cabinet with exciting tournament play across five casino properties at once."
The Spin-Splosion! tournament solution is powered by IGT Tournament Manager 5.0 solution, and was deployed throughout the five Otoe-Missouria properties on 42 CrystalSlant® gaming machines.
As part of the deployment, Otoe-Missouria qualified to participate in IGT's Spin-Cation promotion.
