In the December 2019 issue of the Eilers-Fantini Central Game Performance Database, IGT remained the leader in market share on the casino floor. With 34 percent of machines in North American casinos, IGT added to its lead by adding more wide-area progressives (WAP) over the last month, including the new Price is Right: Triple Showcase Showdowns.

At 24 percent, Scientific Games added more premium leased and WAPs in November, with its new WAP, Dancing Drums Explosion. And third-place Aristocrat is actually the leader in premium slots and WAPs, topping the new titles with Mad Max Fury Road.

The Eilers-Fantini Central Game Performance Database collects and tracks relative slot machine performance data provided by individual casinos on a monthly basis and then standardizes and aggregates the data. All data is held in a secure online database and no individual casino data is viewable.
