IGT Launches 'Avatar' in Germany

Slot manufacturer International Game Technology has introduced its newest slot game based on James Cameron’s Avatar film in two of Germany’s most popular casinos. “James Cameron’s Avatar: Treasures of Pandora” was launched in Casino Stuttgart and Casino Baden-Baden.

The slot uses best-in-class content and graphics to recreate the Pandora planet featured in the fantasy film. The German installations will mark the first time IGT’s Premium Plus content is available for play in the region.

“We could not be more excited about putting the Avatar games on our casino floors,” said Otto Wulferding, CEO of the Baden-Württembergische Spielbanken GmbH & Co. KG. “With the global appeal of the Avatar brand, coupled with the rich gaming experiences that these games offer players, we are confident these machines will be a great enrichment for our casino floors.”

“The introduction of IGT’s Premium Plus portfolio in Germany represents a pivotal step in further propelling gaming entertainment in the region,” said Sabby Gill, IGT’s senior vice president of international sales. “IGT is deeply committed to our customers and their players in this region, and placing titles such as Avatar gives operators a tool to drive coin-in and elicit player excitement.”
