IGT and Scientific Announce Shocking Agreement

IGT and Scientific Announce Shocking Agreement

Two of the gambling industry's biggest casino game software developers - IGT and Scientific Games - recently signed an incredible patent-cross licensing agreement. This deal will give the previous rivals full access to the proprietary features of each other's games.

More specifically, each company has agreed to allow the other to offer games that use patented game features from each other's gaming portfolios and those of other members of the IGT slots game features pool.

This deal is truly amazing because not only are IGT and Scientific Games rivals, they also happen to be two of the largest gaming technology suppliers in the gaming industry as well as hold the two largest slots game features patent portfolios in North America.

Little else is known about this new deal forged between the two companies. Scientific Games has not yet released a statement and, in IGT's brief release, the financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

It will be interesting to see how this partnership plays out in the future.
