IGT are one of the biggest names in both on, and offline gambling, and their game portfolio – consisting of hundreds of titles – is regularly enjoyed by playing all over the world.
First Founded in 1976, IGT started their career developing slots and video pokies for land-based casinos, and the popularity of their games was – at the time – unrivalled, giving the game developer huyge leverage over most of land-based markets.
The company’s inclusion on the New York Stock Exchange in the 1990’s saw the company become publicly traded, furthering their notoriety and popularity, and as the online market begun to emerge, IGT too adapted.
This adaptation saw IGT acquire a number of smaller, less-prominent (at the time) game developers, including Barcrest, Sodak, and – later on, in 2011 – WagerWorks.
Today, the company still plays an important role in the development of land-based gaming software, although they have started shifting focus to the online world, and many of their more popular games have now been ported over for online play.
