IGT New Slots 2019

Red White and Blue
  • Release: Sept 2019
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: 96.42%
  • Reels: 3
  • Lines: 1
  • Mobile: Yes

One of IGT’s releases in 2019, Red White & Blue is going to take us back in time actually, to the 90s and the type of design that we were seeing in land-based slots back then. A slot machine which aims to be patriotic, it mostly uses simple and dated graphics, mimicking the look of a 3-reel classic slot.

Ghostbusters Plus
  • Release: Oct 2019
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: 98.00%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

Ghostbusters Plus is the third game that IGT is releasing in this series, and of course it’s going to be a branded slot machine, which uses actual photos of all the major characters from the original movie. It manages to look good, even though it relies on the look of an 80s film, and that’s something that I couldn’t say about the first game of the series.

Volcano Queen: Diamond Spins
  • Release: Sept 2019
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: 96.13%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 30
  • Mobile: Yes

Volcano Queen: Diamond Spins appears to have a bit of a fantasy/medieval feel to it, with a touch of mysticism as well, particularly when you check out its symbols. A game with a pretty redhead in the role of the queen, with progressive jackpots and a good RTP, it should have plenty to offer to fans of IGT’s slots.

Mistress of Egypt: Diamond Spins
  • Release: Sept 2019
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: 96.20%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 30
  • Mobile: Yes

The Diamond Spins version for Mistress of Egypt is here, and IGT is once again relying on Ancient Egypt for inspiration in one of their slot machines. We’re seeing a low volatility slot here, one which offers progressive jackpots, so there is definitely reason to be excited, even if you’re not typically a fan of Egyptian slots.

Megajackpots Ocean Belles
  • Release: June 2019
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: 92.50%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 75
  • Mobile: Yes

Ocean Belles is a new video slot from IGT, which just happens to offer Megajackpots prizes as well, so it’s got some awesome potential to go along with its beautiful pin-up style models and retro graphics. The action appears to take place onboard a cruise ship, based on the background graphics that we’re seeing.

Little Green Men: Nova Wilds
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: 96.17%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

A Martian invasion is ongoing, and we find out more about it from IGT’s Little Green Men: Nova Wilds. The game features fun cartoon-style graphics, the likes of which I don’t really expect to get from this developer. They did a great job with the design of this one though, I will give them that.

Pyramidion
  • Release: May 2019
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

Pyramidion, which is going to be available via IGT, is a slot machine that once again takes us to the lands of Ancient Egypt. It’s quite the popular destination for slots to take their players to, but even so, such a game can be interesting if the features are fun, and Pyramidion seems to deliver just that.

Mega Jackpots: Wheel of Fortune On Air
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

Mega Jackpots: Wheel of Fortune On Air is one of the new IGT slots, a release where we once again get a look at the Wheel of Fortune franchise. There are several other slot machines released which have the same focus, but that doesn’t mean that this one can’t be fun, particularly since it also delivers Mega Jackpots.

Pixies of the Forest II
  • Release: Jan 2019
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 33
  • Mobile: Yes

Pixies of the Forest II is the second installment in this series, of slots from IGT, which have a focus on pixies and on an enchanted forest. This theme has been fairly popular with other developers as well, and since IGT launches this sequel, it appears that players also love it.

Action Jack
  • Release: Jan 2019
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: 92.34%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 40
  • Mobile: Yes

Action Jack is travelling to South America, to explore the Aztec temples and find treasures, and we’re going along on that ride. IGT is the one that’s giving us a game which doesn’t feel very original theme-wise, but hopefully you will enjoy the rest of it a lot more.

Its Magic
  • Release: Jan 2019
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 50
  • Mobile: Yes

An IGT release, It’s Magic will be a game which uses the fantasy genre for inspiration. Magic exists in this game, and it’s represented through the wild creatures and the slot’s main character, a girl called Lilly. IGT is a giant, a developer with resources to create some awesome slots, so let’s see what they came up with here.

Wheel of Fortune Hawaiian Getaway
  • Release: Sept 2018
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 25
  • Mobile: Yes

One more Wheel of Fortune slot machine is being released, this time the version being called Hawaiian Getaway. It’s clear what the inspiration for this game show themed slot has been for IGT. The Wheel has been extremely popular as a feature, even in slots which are not necessarily inspired by it directly, and I’m sure this title will be fun as well. Let’s go in and make sure though, shall we?

Fantastic Fireworks
  • Release: July 2018
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: 96.51%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

A very interesting game for a developer like IGT, Fantastic Fireworks ends up a much better slot machine visually than many others coming from them, and best of all it has unique features to show off as well. It’s entirely inspired by fireworks, which just makes them extra enjoyable.

Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks
  • Release: Aug 2018
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 30
  • Mobile: Yes

A fairly popular slot machine from IGT is now getting a sequel, in the form of Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks. The game is an improvement over the original, has some different things to offer, and so both can be played and they will complement each other nicely.

Electric Tiger
  • Release: May 2018
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 15
  • Mobile: Yes

One of IGT’s slot machines, Electric Tiger is available in a neon style design, which incorporates a lot of the classics that we’re used to by now, so it’s not quite the tiger themed game that you might imagine it to be.

The Monkey Prince
  • Release: Feb 2018
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: 96.16%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 60
  • Mobile: Yes

The Monkey Prince, the IGT slot machine, is one of several titles available these days, to feature a theme of Chinese inspiration that focuses on a popular character of the country’s legends. The Monkey Prince, or the Monkey God as it’s known in other games, is the main character of this particular slot.

Wishwood
  • Release: Dec 2017
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: 95.00%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

In a game that offers us magical trees, wisps and other fantasy inspired creatures, the result can only be a slot machine that belongs to the fantasy genre. There are plenty of mystical inspired symbols in the game, along with creatures of the forest. Wishwood is a slot machine that is coming from IGT.

Golden Goddess: Mega Jackpots
  • Release: Nov 2017
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: 91.01%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 40
  • Mobile: Yes

Golden Goddess Mega Jackpots is a game that’s offered by IGT, and it’s the version that has a progressive jackpot attached, hence the Mega Jackpots part of the title. A regular version of the game has also been released by the company, but the Mega Jackpots one is the newer slot. The theme of the game is based on Ancient Greece and on Aphrodite, one of the most famous characters of their pantheon.

Royal Spins
  • Release: June 2017
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: 96.03%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 4
  • Mobile: Yes

Royal Spins is the sort of game where the player gets a modern setup and a couple of interesting features, but which relies on graphics that belong about a decade back, using classic symbols and fruits and keeping the number of lines low. IGT tends to do a lot better feature wise in their games, so this game doesn’t excel in any area, if you discount the progressive jackpot that is available.

IGT can be considered the world’s largest manufacturer of slot machines, with a major focus on the brick and mortar casino market. They have the online component to their business as well, and they are one of the big names of that particular niche, but their strength seems to be somewhere else. They acquired multiple companies over the years, which gave them more games and access to additional niches of the gambling industry.

IGT is from the United States, with its HQ being in the country’s gambling capital, in Las Vegas. It also has another HQ in San Francisco and it has offices in other countries around the world, including in China, Gibraltar and UK. This company is listed on NYSE, using the IGT symbol.

The company runs its software and RNG through tests at independent auditors, they encrypt the data and they seem to be quite responsible overall. They can be found in some of the most popular online casinos, as well as in many offline ones.

History

IGT started out as a developer of slot machine cabinets for the brick and mortar casino, and it was founded in 1975. Its founder’s name was William S. Redd. The name of the company stands for International Game Technology. The company went public in 1981.

In 1984, it acquired its first company, called Electronic Data Technologies. They innovated right from the start and they were one of the first to use computers to track player data. They continued to innovate in the years to come and they launched a gaming concept that was called S-Slot, among with others. They also launched the Megabucks Slots, with jackpots that started out at $1 million, as well as the Player’s Edge machines for video poker.

They released their first slot machines with special themes in 1989, the titles released then being “Red, White & Blue” and “Double Diamonds”. They got listed on NYSE in 1991, creating IGT Europe so that its clients from continental Europe could get support. They’ve also created their first pachisuro machine for Japan.

With the United States legalizing riverboat gaming, IGT started producing more and more slot machines, with 69,000 units made in 1993 and another 95,000 the next year. They’ve started expanding to other countries, creating offices in Argentina and South Africa. They then acquired Barcrest Gaming in UK, as well as Sodak Gaming. The slot machine with the number 1,000,000 was made in 2000. They entered multiple markets in the coming years, including Mexico, Russia, Macau and Canada. In 2006, they put out a new series, called MP, which proved to be very popular. The machine with the number 2,000,000 was done in 2010, and they got an award for best developer of slot machines the same year. In 2012 they bought Double Down, and they got into the social gaming niche.

IGT Casino Games

Since we’re looking mostly at the online content here, I’m going to note first of all that there are over 100 slot machines offered by IGT. These are all web-based games, which don’t require a download or installation. They’re going to be easy to integrate into casinos that have multiple developers and which rely on instant play games.

IGT isn’t a one trick pony, so the list of games that it has in its collection will include pretty much all casino titles that you’d expect to find, not just slots. You will have 8 games of Blackjack, 8 types of Roulette, Baccarat, Craps, 17 versions of Video Poker and 3 of Keno.

In terms of progressive jackpots, there are three slot machines that will offer them. They are all offering a Megajackpots prize. The games where you will find these are MegaJackpots Monopoly, MegaJackpots Cluedo and MegaJackpots Cleopatra.

IGT mixes its regular themes with branded ones, and I loved seeing slot machines like The Lord of the Rings, Transformers or The Hangover, inspired by some of the most popular movies of the last decade. They have quite a few other games with similar themes in them and the branded slots appear to be a major strategy for IGT. The regular themed slots include Valhalla, Sakura Tree and Sevens Baby.

Graphics

This is one side of IGT where I’m often not 100% satisfied with the outcome. The designs in the slots they put out are good generally, but they’re far from being as impressive as those that you can expect when you play a NetEnt or Betsoft slot machine, to mention just two of the developers that do a particularly good job in this area. Obviously, some slot machines are going to look better than others, either because they got more attention or because they’re newer. Also, all IGT games are perfectly playable, they’re not going to be ugly, just usually not as gorgeous as some of their competitors.

Features

The area where I’m most impressed with IGT is in the features that they include in slots that they create. A lot of their games will actually have the player pick some sort of avatar and then they will advance in level and in the story. This gives the player an incentive to stick with a single game, since they will get more benefits out of it the more they advance in it. You usually have the wilds, scatters and free spins as well in there, but multipliers and bonus games are also part of the deal.

Payouts

For the payouts of IGT’s slots, the biggest ones seem to come from the progressive jackpots, though those are only available in a couple of games of theirs. Most of the jackpots will be fixed ones, and quite a few will have multiples of up to 10,000x. There are smaller ones as well though, depending on what else is offered inside, some even as low as 1,000x.
