US gaming supplier IGT will launch a number of new interactive products this year, including its MegaJackpots game and the first for-wager title from the legacy GTECH game portfolio.

The company said that it is set for an “exciting” 2016 due to a range of blockbuster interactive games and feature releases to its partners.

The first game to launch will be MegaJackpots Isle O’Plenty, which will be simultaneously introduced to IGT’s online and mobile slots portfolios next month.
The launch will bolster the successful MegaJackpots Interactive game series and become the third title in the popular jackpot pool.

IGT launched MegaJackpots Cleopatra and MegaJackpots Siberian Storm in February last year and the games have since paid out a series of large jackpots including 12 major jackpot wins across eight major operators.

The latest title, MegaJackpots Isle O’Plenty, features leprechaun magic, enchanting wild symbols and a wild rush feature, and will go live with a promotional campaign that features a £250,000 bonus prize fund.

IGT will also be launching another Irish-themed game, with Shamrockers expected to hit online casinos in time for St Patrick’s Day in March.

Created by IGT’s Manchester-based UK studio, the game boasts a soundtrack of rock music from the Emerald Isle, a rewarding Dynamic Stacks feature and an Encore bonus which can trigger extra free spins.

Another much-anticipated interactive launch is Treasures of the Pyramids, the first for-wager title from the legacy GTECH game portfolio to launch on the company’s widely distributed remote gaming server.

Building on the popularity of the classic Cleopatra theme, IGT will release Cleopatra PLUS later in 2016.

Cleopatra PLUS offers all the mystery and action of the classic game, with the addition of the Level Up Plus feature. Building a group following within the game will unlock new Egyptian god symbols, and with higher levels reached awarding bonus maps, extra spin features and the chance of bigger payouts.

The supplier will also roll out another game based on the popular Wheel of Fortune brand with Wheel of Fortune On Tour. The slot game also includes the Level Up Plus feature and challenges players to fill up the tank of their tour bus as they visit iconic US locations on their roadmap.

Later this year, IGT will launch another slot game from the legacy GTECH content portfolio. In GOLDIFY, players must turn as many symbols as possible to gold, enabling wins to be multiplied up to five times the original value.
