New York-listed supplier International Game Technology (IGT) has launched a new inter-casino slot tournament across the Otoe-Missouria Tribe’s casinos in the US state of Oklahoma.

The operator becomes the first to deploy IGT’s Spin-Splosion! video slot tournament technology, rolling out at five Oklahoma casinos where players can now compete against each other.

"We are happy to be the first operator in the United States to offer players inter-casino slot tournaments via IGT's Spin-Splosion! tournament solution and extend the excitement of tournament play beyond a single casino," said 7 Clans Casinos chief executive Bruce Barnett.

The Spin-Splosion! tournament solution is powered by IGT Tournament Manager 5.0 and has been deployed on 42 gaming machines at 7 Clans First Council, Perry, Paradise, Chilocco, and Red Rock.

IGT chief commercial officer for gaming, Nick Khin, commented: "By adding Spin-Splosion! to its casino floors, Otoe-Missouria is introducing a new level of competitive slot entertainment to Oklahoma.

"This turnkey tournament solution gives Otoe-Missouria the option of enhancing the player experience on IGT's CrystalSlant cabinet with exciting tournament play across five casino properties at once."

Shares in International Game Technology plc (NSQ:IGT) closed in New York Monday down 2.15 per cent at $22.74 per share.
