The Drop interviewed IGT Head of Product ANZ, Patrick Brimmer who gave us some interesting insights into their new game design trends and their market focus on adding interest for players, in the successful StarStax and Fortune Gong games.

IGT continues to increase game performance by offering point of difference games.  Their Crystal Curve Star Stax-Vegas Nights released over 4 months ago is achieving a 1.13 Maxgaming performance ratio and the new Star Stax-Eastern Lights is sitting at 1.58, for November so far.

The new 27” Crystal cabinet Fortune Gong games are also achieving very strong results with Fortune Gong-Phoenix Rising SAP at 1.28 and Fortune Gong-Dragon Dynasty SAP at 1.16. The Link version of these games are at the same performance levels giving clubs a lot of flexibility when purchasing these games.

For November so far IGT have 9 of the Top 25 games in NSW released in the last two years and their results are building. When looking at overall performance for the current product lines for each of the main manufacturers, the IGT Crystal Curve and Crystal 27” machines are a clear purchase choice for NSW clubs when it is time to look for some variety. Recent and long-awaited performance improvements in QLD are seeing positive trends for these IGT games there as well.
