US gaming supplier International Game Technology (IGT) will roll out GTECH’s legacy content portfolio by rolling out free-to-play variants of the games on its leading social casino app DoubleDown Casino.

GTECH’s acquisition of IGT in April last year provides the DoubleDown team with access to a range of new games, with Egyptian-themed Treasures of the Pyramids the first legacy title to be added to the app.

The social variant features the same base game and bonus mechanics as its land-based counterpart, while its five-reel, 40-playline configuration will display the original’s wild panther symbol.

Spread across two reels, the wild panther can trigger 100 free games in the bonus round with a variety of multipliers to boost jackpots.

“Launching our first legacy GTECH title on DoubleDown Casino establishes a significant milestone for the new IGT, showcasing our combined strengths from the two legacy organizations,” DoubleDown Interactive senior vice president and general manager Joe Sigrist commented. “Treasures of the Pyramids is a well-known, top-performing title in land-based casinos.

“Leveraging its popularity provides our social players with more engaging content as we continue IGT's momentum as the leader in cross-platform content creation and distribution.”

Shares in International Game Technology plc (Co. Data) (NASDAQ:IGT) closed at $15.55 per share in New York Tuesday.
