LAS VEGAS, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- A wealth of new penny slot themes spanning all IGT (NYSE: IGT) product lines and a new Trimline machine that applies AVP(R) technology to for-sale machines will be among the "must- sees" at the IGT booth during the Global Gaming Expo Sept. 13-15 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

IGT will also officially kick off its silver anniversary as a company in 2006, which will be reflected in its Global Gaming Expo booth theme this year.

"Based on the phenomenal popularity of low-denomination games, we'll showcase the strength of our penny products by unveiling new game titles across all of our product lines," said Steve Morro, President of IGT's Gaming Group. "We'll have close to 400 gaming machines in the IGT booth with a dazzling array of configurations: our highly successful 5-reel slots and video slots with up to 100 paylines, and penny themes on our Fort Knox(R) and Party Time!(R) Multi Level Progressives, Wheelionaire(TM) Mega-Mystery Progressive, MultiWay(TM), Reel Touch(R) games and video slot products. It's going to be a spectacular way to set the stage for our company's silver anniversary celebration."

Among the new Perfect for Pennies(TM) themes IGT will introduce are Great White(TM), King Cheetah(TM), Persian Princess(TM), Beachcomber(TM), Great Plains(TM), South Pacific(TM), Double Bunger(TM) and Heart of Africa(TM). IGT video slots will showcase a number of new titles: Jewel of Arabia(TM), Lucky Lion Fish(TM), Festival Fantastico(TM), Henry the 8th(TM), Sneeki Tiki(TM), Brew Ha Ha(TM) and Wild Goose Chase(TM).

IGT will also feature its new sb(TM) products for server-based gaming applications including the sb system and sb machines which allow a casino to download entire games and configure game themes on any of its gaming machines. The Trimline sb(TM) AVP(R) machine displays the game theme on its digital glass.

The IGT Advantage(TM) system will preview the future of table game automation with the new Intelligent Table System(TM). Using RFID technology, Intelligent Table System(TM) will enhance players' Bonusing experience and significantly improve the efficiency and profitability of table games. IGT Advantage(TM) system will also feature the Advantage Club Kiosk(TM), its Bonusing(TM) technology, and Loot 66(TM), the Loyalty Game theme that combines the power of player clubs with a multi-line, multi-coin game.
