elected from more than 100 partners, IGT lead Marathon's global reseller channel in sales of everRun, Marathon's line of high availability solutions. IGT also demonstrated an ongoing commitment to providing customers in the gaming industry with continuous, high levels of support.
“We are proud to recognize IGT, which has shown an outstanding ability to identify and capitalize on sales opportunities for everRun, as our 2006 Partner of the Year,” said Kristen Robinson, Vice President of Sales at Marathon Technologies. “I would like to thank IGT and the rest of our outstanding reseller channel for their exceptional work and dedication to driving the adoption of everRun throughout 2006. We look forward to a successful 2007 as our reseller channel continues to grow.”

IGT distributes Marathon's everRun solution in conjunction with the IGT Advantage Casino System. Doing so ensures that IGT's Advantage customers have the highest possible levels of availability for their mission critical casino systems.
“We've had a great relationship with the Marathon team and are honored to be awarded the 2006 Partner of the Year,” said Reed Alewel, Vice President of North American System Sales at IGT. “Marathon proved to be an excellent company with products that provide immense and immediate value to our customers.”
