In addition to the recently announced PeakBarTop cabinet, IGT PlayDigital's comprehensive portfolio, and soon to be announced IGT PlaySports product debuts, key product highlights from IGT's G2E 2019 portfolio will include seven focal points.
Peak hardware family makes global trade show debut. G2E marks the global trade show debut for three cabinets within IGT's new Peak hardware family. The PeakSlant 49 gaming machine features a curved, 49-inch, ultra-HD display, a large 13.3-inch Dynamic Player Panel and series of tech-advanced features such as an inductive wireless charging port for personal devices. The cabinet is backed by a large library of games including the highly anticipated Scarab Link. The company will also introduce the PeakSlant 49 with Wheel cabinet, a modern hardware solution for Wheel of Fortune slots that includes a 49-inch, ultra-HD touch screen display and is topped with a 27-inch Wheel of Fortune wheel.
IGT evolves iconic games into next-generation experiences across portfolio. IGT will introduce evolutions of many of its proven game themes to create compelling experiences across the core video, core stepper and multi-level progressive segments. Scarab Grand, Candy Bars 2, Dragon Lights, Fu Gui Long Feng, Red Hot Tamales! Jackpots are next-generation progressives that build on the success of the original IGT themes. IGT will also introduce Ocean Magic 4D on the CrystalCurve TRUE 4D cabinet, building on the global success of Ocean Magic. The company will apply one of its most recognizable game themes of all time, Cleopatra, to the new TournXtreme product Cleopatra Tournament. The high-energy, video slot tournament solution melds player-favorite Cleopatra slots with the competitive, adrenaline-pumping TournXtreme experience that players have grown to love.
Expanded portfolio of "Proven Performers" core video games. New core video slot games that achieved "Proven Performer" status in the company's external performance testing will take center stage. Lucky Buddha, Twin Strike, Magic of the Nile, and Hexbreaker 3 will serve as strong examples of IGT's core video roadmap at G2E. IGT will also showcase high-potential stepper games such as Loot Booster and Double Chili Mania on the S3000 cabinet.
New Wheel of Fortune games propel legacy of its most successful slot theme. The company will present a set of new Wheel of Fortune slot games that is as diverse as the players who enjoy them. New TRUE 4D games Wheel of Fortune More Money and Wheel of Fortune 4D WheelMobile will be joined by games such as Wheel of Fortune Cash Link Deluxe with base games Ruby Riches and Shimmering Sapphires, and Wheel of Fortune Gold Spin Deluxe on the CrystalWheel + Stepper cabinet. IGT will also introduce the new Wheel of Fortune content for the highly successful MegaTower cabinet.
Premium content demonstrates continued commitment to licensed themes and TRUE 4D technology. The world of Sony Pictures' Jumanji franchise will come to life in a wild, multi-sensory capacity with the introduction of IGT's Jumanji 4D game on the CrystalCurve TRUE 4D gaming machine. G2E attendees can be among the first in the world to experience Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure video slots on the CrystalCurve ULTRA cabinet. This "totally excellent" progressive includes five entertaining bonuses that leverage fan-favorite imagery from the cult classic movie.

The company will debut Jeopardy! and $25,000 Pyramid on the MegaTower Universal cabinet, and demonstrate The Price is Right Showcase Showdown on the MegaTower Universal cabinet.
IGT Systems innovations that change the player experience, create player convenience and drive efficiencies.
