New York-listed International Game Technology (IGT) has agreed a multi-year distribution deal with Australian gaming supplier Chill Gaming.

The agreement makes IGT the sole distributor of Chill Gaming products worldwide outside of Australia and New Zealand, including slots such as Bloomtopia and Fortunes of the Brave.

Chill Gaming is a joint venture between Australian casino operator Crown Resorts and New Gaming, which is owned by the founders of electronic gaming machine manufacturer Wymac Gaming Solutions.

"This distribution agreement with Chill Gaming enables IGT to bolster our solutions portfolio with even more products that are designed to attract and entertain an expanded demographic of players," said Walter Bugno, IGT chief executive International. "We believe that Chill Gaming's solutions will complement the momentum that IGT has recently generated with innovation-driven solutions such as IGT's Texas Tea Pinball skill-based game and our PlaySpot and Cardless Connect mobile solutions."

Peter Herring, Crown Resorts’ group general manager product, strategy and innovation, added: “Our goal is to create greater value and entertainment for our customers with games that engage casino patrons in new ways.

“We believe that IGT's global reach and the company's history in bringing innovative products to market make it the ideal partner for distributing games from the Chill Gaming portfolio."

Shares in International Game Technology plc (Co. Data) (NSQ:IGT) closed in New York Wednesday down 1.86 per cent at $24.25 per share.
