International Game Technology PLC (IGT) was built on video poker. According to the company’s website, in 1979, Si Redd and Sarcoma (the former company that later became IGT) introduced its very first game patent—a single-game family video poker title called Fortune 1 Draw Poker.
Fast forward to 1981… video poker had become the most popular new slot game in casinos, and IGT introduced the concept of video poker bundling with its release of the Game King multi-game, casino game, including several video slot machines, video poker games, and video keno games.
The company has been revolutionizing in the video poker space ever since. For example, IGT has always believed players are inclined to try out and enjoy new gaming concepts, and in 2002 the company developed a game based on a new patent which used a sixth coin to fund a bonus, which became Super Times Pay Poker game. According to IGT, Super Times Pay Poker game was, and still is, a phenomenal success and it proved that if a feature were compelling and occurred frequently enough, players would pay for it.
The company used the same coin method for several games, until the next big title: Ultimate X Poker. The concept behind the Ultimate X Poker game was earning multipliers on winning hands, where the multipliers are awarded on the next hand. The challenge was to fund this bonus feature properly, which meant being able to charge five extra coins per hand. IGT was convinced that this was a bonus player would be happy to fund. As a result, Ultimate X Poker game reportedly still is the fastest growing game the company has ever developed.
At that time, when asked how you would describe today’s most common video poker player, the director of video poker at IGT explained it like this.
Video poker players are typically quite loyal to that genre of gaming. In many instances they are more change-adverse than other types of casino patrons, and they often have more frequent and longer player sessions than slot players enjoy. This trend is not new; we have seen video poker players exhibit these tendencies for many years and IGT takes these behaviors into consideration when developing our video poker product roadmap and go-to-market strategies.
When asked how video poker has developed throughout, they years he explained it like this.
IGT’s video poker collection has significantly evolved over the years—both with hardware and the content. As an industry, we have made meaningful progress since the early days of small displays and eight-bit graphics. Today, IGT video poker content is available on a range of our leading hardware solutions including the Crystal Slant 27 cabinet that features HD graphics, a mobile device charging port and an ergonomic design. IGT also offers video poker content on large-format cabinets, upright hardware with mechanical wheels in the top box and a highly versatile bar top portfolio.
IGT’s continued leadership in the video poker space can also be credited to our continued content innovation. For example, IGT leverages multipliers, tournament experiences, multi-hand games and more to keep our game content fresh and engaging to players who seek new video poker experiences.
When asked how video poker trends have been changing, the director of IGT’s video poker explained as follows.
In my experience, general casino trends have not had dramatic impacts on IGT’s video poker customers. I think this phenomenon goes back to the loyalty of video poker players; they tend to be genre purists who stay loyal to their favorite video poker titles and pay tables.
What are the advantages of playing video poker instead of traditional poker?
As explained by the director of video poker, Video poker and live table games offer entirely different player experiences in my view. Video poker offers a more intimate, private experience that players can enjoy at their own pace. Additionally, less experienced poker players often gravitate toward video poker, as it affords an environment where game familiarization might be more comfortable.
When asked what IGT’s favorite video poker games he is explains it like this.
IGT’’s video poker roadmap has many things to be excited about. Our recent game releases include Fire Poker, Multi-Strike Platinum and, my favorite, Lucky 8s Wheel Poker. Lucky 8s Wheel Poker is an innovative theme that features a mechanical wheel in the top box and has Asian-themed bonus events—something unique for video poker. I am also overly optimistic about our large-format, multi-hand games that deal up to 100 hands at a time on our Poker XL cabinet. We are also now leveraging player-favorite poker brands such as Ultimate X and Super Times Pay in our keno portfolio to create dynamic games such as Ultimate X Keno and Super Times Pay Keno
