Walter Bugno, CEO, IGT International

Walter Bugno joined IGT in 2010 and has risen to become the CEO for all IGT gaming management and strategies outside of North America. Although IGT is not the dominant slot company as it is in the U.S., Bugno has led an impressive growth in Asia Pacific, Europe and Latin America. Interviewed at the large ICE gaming trade show in London, Bugno explains what games and systems are popular in Europe, how the company develops games that are popular in the international market, and why technology will keep IGT at the forefront of development.
