International Game Technology (NYSE: IGT) a global leader in gaming systems technology, today announced it will bring its love for Las Vegas to players around the world by making DoubleDown Casino available in French, German and Spanish.

“DoubleDown is the only online casino that delivers an authentic Vegas experience and has the biggest selection of real casino games in one place,” said Robert Melendres, IGT Executive Vice President, IGT Interactive Group. “The majority of online social casinos are predominantly available in English but now players around the world have an all-inclusive place where they can play games in their native language, including exclusive IGT game content.”

DoubleDown provides the widest variety of Vegas-style social casino games for beginners to enthusiasts – and now, those who prefer playing in French, German or Spanish can access popular IGT Slot titles such as Kitty Glitter™ Cleopatra™, Wolf Run, Cats and Siberian Storm™; table games such as Game King’s Video Poker™, Black Jack and Roulette; and bingo, among others.

In 2012, DoubleDown Casino players quickly grew to tens of thousands throughout France, Germany and Spain, indicating a market need for multi-lingual options. The company plans to release its games in Italian and other languages by the end of 2013.
