Company will install 960 high-performing Cobalt machines with player-favorite content
International Game Technology PLC announced that it will deliver 960 Cobalt™ 27 video lottery terminals (VLTs) to Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Corporation (“MBLL”). This marks the first installment of IGT’s high-performing Cobalt VLT in Canada.
“IGT’s Cobalt VLT has gained positive momentum across the U.S., Latin America and Europe, and we are very excited to build on that success in Manitoba,” said David Flinn, IGT SVP, Canada, South and Central America. “The Cobalt VLTs will feature market-attuned content, including the highly successful commercial game Temple of Fire Cash Eruption that has been specially adapted for VLT operators. These solutions allow MBLL to modernize its VLT gaming with best-in-class hardware and entertain players with engaging themes.”
Debuting in Canada, IGT’s Cobalt 27 VLT is expertly designed to fit operators’ distinct needs. IGT’s Cobalt 27 features two high-definition 27-inch screens, an optional 24-inch topper, integrated cabinet lighting and a static five-button player panel. It also has advanced ergonomics and a built-in USB charging port for ultimate comfort and convenience.
The new VLTs in Manitoba will feature top-performing IGT content such as Temple of Fire™ Cash Eruption®, Big City 5’s™, Five Times Pay™, Power Keno™ and Double Double Bonus Poker™. VLT players in Manitoba will also have the chance to experience a new IGT brand-extension theme, The Wild Life Extreme™, that expands on the wildly popular original IGT game, The Wild Life™.
