Manufacturers Market Share

At one time, IGT controlled the U.S. slot market, supplying over 70 percent of the machines operating there. Of course, those were the days when there were only four or five slot manufacturers in the field. So it was bound to even out, but even today, IGT holds a healthy lead in market share in the U.S., coming in almost 10 points ahead of runner-up Scientific Games in the July 2019 edition of the Eilers-Fantini Game Performance Report. And even though there have been complaints about sharing revenue in leased slot machines and wide-area progressives, the Game Performance Report shows that casino operators actually own almost 90 percent of the games on the casino floor today.
