“When launching the Mississippi Lottery in 2019, we relied on IGT’s expertise to guide us in driving player engagement across draw-based and instant ticket games, and in realizing our growth targets. After almost five very successful years, we continue working with IGT to enhance our operations and deliver quality entertainment to our players.

Once available, the Mississippi Lottery’s mobile app will provide players a multitude of convenience features, including the ability to view winning numbers, check for winning tickets, create digital playslips, find retailers, access game information, and review responsible gaming materials. In addition to the 300 GameTouch 28 self-service terminals already installed throughout the State, IGT will deploy new GameTouch 28 machines, enabling dynamic user experiences that will further engage Mississippi Lottery players and provide increased flexibility. IGT’s Sales Wizard is the industry-leading sales force automation tool that will offer the Lottery’s sales teams with timely, comprehensive reports providing insights on sales, instant ticket inventory, instant ticket facings, and point-of-sale equipment and signage.

International Game Technology PLC announced that its new multi-level progressive (MLP) game, Tiger and Dragon, recently debuted on casino floors across the US. Available on the sleek PeakCurve49 cabinet, Tiger and Dragon combines new and proven mechanics with high bonus frequencies for an action-packed entertainment experience.

“We made a commitment to advancing IGT’s game performance with strong multi-level progressive content and leveraged our extensive research and focus group capabilities to achieve this with the award-winning Prosperity Link and Mystery of the Lamp MLP games. Bolstered by our strong momentum in the MLP space, we combined proven game mechanics with exciting new features and gameplay in the development of Tiger and Dragon. We’re excited to unveil this extremely fun and entertaining game with our casino operator partners and their players,” said Dubravka Burda, IGT SVP Global Studios.

The Tiger and Dragon MLP is available in two base games, Multiplier and Cash On Reels. Both games feature three unique bonuses: Tiger, Dragon, and the combined Tiger and Dragon bonus. The game introduces an entirely new lock-and-respin and reveal bonus structure featuring money ball symbols with credit values that can combine. In another new game mechanic, when gong symbols on reels land in the same row, monetary winnings are revealed. Adding to the gameplay excitement are the game’s “up arrows” that appear on reels and increase credit values exponentially.

The game’s Tiger bonus presents win opportunities on a 3×5 reel matrix, and both the Dragon bonus and the combined Tiger and Dragon bonus advance the reels to an 8×5 reel matrix for big win potential. The vibrant game stands out on the gaming floor on the PeakCurve49 cabinet with unique merchandising options, vivid graphics, and LED signage.
