om continued: "We made the first video poker game, the first microprocessor-driven spinning reel game, and the first ever wide-area progressive jackpot game. And along with the millions of machines we've produced, our innovative ideas have changed the way the industry thinks about gaming--from the first game that rolled off the line almost 30 years ago to our 2 millionth game today."
The IGT production line started up in Reno, Nevada, in the early 1980s producing the company's first games including Fortune 1 Poker, Keno, M Slots and a number of mechanical reel games. Now, 2 million games later, the times have changed as one of the hottest video slots in the market today, Siberian Storm, rolls off the line. This innovative game is a member of the IGT exclusive MultiWay Xtra family and offers players up to 720 ways to win. Unique to games like Siberian Storm is the hexagonal reel interface and exciting game play that players love.
"It is an honor to be involved with the production of this 2 millionth game", said Matt LaBranch, IGT's senior vice president of Manufacturing Operations. "It signifies a tremendous accomplishment for our company, and celebrates all we do at IGT, day in and day out."
