IGT And Caesars Entertainment Ink Video Poker Deal

LAS VEGAS, Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A global leader in casino gaming entertainment and systems technology, International Game Technology (NYSE: IGT) announced today that it has struck a deal with Caesars Entertainment Corp. (NASDAQ: CZR) to supply the gaming giant with 7,000 AVP ® Video Poker terminals.  The contract with the Las Vegas-based operator includes 3,600 G20 Uprights, 2,400 Universal Slant cabinets and 1,000 G20 Bar Tops. The new machines will replace existing units in Caesars Entertainment-operated resorts across the country and will be part of the largest gaming re-investment the company has made in 10 years.


"With a huge thank you to Caesars Entertainment, we're excited to kick off this next chapter in our long-standing great relationship, continuing our strong foothold in the video poker community," said Eric Tom, Executive Vice President of Global Sales at IGT. "Our S2000 platform has provided best-in-class performance for many years and we are excited to take the game to the next level for Caesars with our AVP platform.  Players love the excitement of IGT's traditional and new Video Poker content on the next-generation platform."

The deal is an expansion of a long-standing relationship with the entertainment giant and reinforces IGT's position as an industry leader in providing reliable, player-favored content to casino operators.

"Enriching the guest experience is our number one priority at our casinos and resorts across the country," said Melissa Price, Caesars Entertainment senior vice president of gaming. "This is just one of many initiatives Caesars has undertaken over the last several years – from the addition of new hospitality amenities across our resorts to fully new developments in existing gaming markets and beyond – to ensure a superior guest experience. Our decision to partner with IGT for our video poker slots is a reflection of the confidence we have in their products.  We're excited to deliver to our players the most modern, state-of-the-art gaming experience available and feel confident these units will serve us for years to come."

AVP® accommodates all the classic video poker titles that fans have grown to love while also leaving room for future, custom configurations as IGT releases new themes and bonuses.
