IGT goes big at ICE Totally Gaming 2018
We knew IGT would have plenty to show us at ICE Totally Gaming this year, but they surprised everyone with over 200 products and solutions on display at their stand. The company has always been driven to provide diversity and choice in the gaming industry and their stand at Totally Gaming was one of the most impressive.
Some of the highlights from their ICE stand include:
- New Gaming Cabinets – The new cabinets and hardware on offer included a new dual-screen video cabinet for casino floors. These gaming cabinets included a mobile charging point, two 27-inch HD screens and synchronised lighting.
- Contactless technology for casino games – The new Cardless Connect and PlaySpot technology showcased at ICE gives players the choice to pay for games using their smartphones. Contactless payments using smartphones are on the rise and now players can tap their phones in casinos to get in on the gaming action.
- PowerSight Technology – This new feature will be added to future games and brings eye tracking technology to casino games. Players will be able to unlock features and select bonuses simply by staring at them on the screen.
Gaming fans got to see these exciting new features and much more from IGT during the event, making this one of the most visited stands at the venue.
The industry leaders of IGT continue to deliver excellence in the gaming and lottery products they provide and we can expect many more exciting things from them throughout 2018.
