n the agreement, IGT will provide financial support to CNIGA EDC based on growth of the number of IGT WAP/Contribution games at the casinos of CNIGA member tribes. CNIGA EDC will be rewarded as its member tribes add incremental IGT WAP/Contribution games to their casino floors.
As a commitment to continuing IGT's longstanding relationship and to help further their goals, the substantial monetary awards provided by IGT for incremental placement of WAP/Contribution games will be invested or spent in ways fully determined by CNIGA EDC.
IGT will provide CNIGA member tribes with access to its long list of WAP/Contribution games available now and in the future. These games are designed to assist CNIGA EDC and its member tribes with their revenue needs.
Included in the WAP/Contribution games choices are Wheel of Fortune, Secret Spins, Megabucks, Wild Sapphires, and Star Wars, Droid, Hunt, as well as IGT's impressive Center Stage Series with entertaining games such as American Idol and Wheel of Fortune Triple Spin, to name a few.
"IGT is proud of our history of support for the California Nations Indian Gaming Association," said Eric Tom, CEO for IGT. "We deeply value our relationship with CNIGA EDC as well as CNIGA's member tribes, and this agreement will provide substantial support to CNIGA EDC at levels not offered by any other gaming manufacturer. In addition, this partnership truly speaks to IGT's longstanding commitment to tribal efforts and tribal sovereignty."
"We see this joint venture with IGT as truly beneficial for all parties. Through this agreement, we will be able to help our tribal members provide their players with the very best gaming experiences, and at the same time, generate revenue that will assist in our ongoing work to preserve and protect the inherent sovereign rights of Indian tribes," said Daniel J. Tucker, Chairman for CNIGA.
