IGT Wins 15 of 20 Awards in 'Best of Gaming 2007,' Gold Award at 'Most Innovative Products' Competition.

RENO, Nev., June 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The 2007 version of the annual 'Best of Gaming' awards, sponsored by Casino Player magazine and determined by player voting, gave IGT's games 15 of 20 possible places among gaming machine manufacturers.
 IGT captured all four first-place awards:

 -- Favorite Reel Slot Machine - Double Diamond(R)
 -- Favorite Video Slot Machine - Wheel of Fortune(R)
 -- Favorite Bonus Round - Wheel of Fortune(R)
 -- Favorite Video Poker Machine - Deuces Wild





In those four categories, IGT took two second places, two third places, four fourth places, and three fifth places. IGT themes honored in various categories also included Star Wars(TM), Texas Tea(R), Cleopatra(R), Triple Diamond(R), Red White & Blue(R), Bonus Poker(R), Double Bonus Poker(R), Double Double Bonus Poker(R), and Jacks or Better Poker. IGT introduces several hundred new game themes each year, as part of the industry's most extensive casino games library.

IGT was also honored with four of the 'Top 20 Most Innovative Gaming Technology Products' -- including a gold award for its sb(TM) Service Window technology -- at the recent Casino Technology Summit in Las Vegas. The sb(TM) Service Window allows players to receive individualized casino services and awards, and lets a casino property maximize its revenues across all of its enterprises -- not just at the slot machine. The Summit, sponsored by Casino Journal magazine, drew 400 attendees, 300 of whom voted on their choices for the top three products among the Top 20 winners.
