IGT Renews Agreement With Hasbro

21 January 2012 by Devon Chappell

If there is any doubt about online gambling coming to the United State, one need only take a look at the recent partnership renewal between two iconic American companies: Hasbro Incorporated and International Gaming Technology (IGT). On first glance, one might be wondering what on earth a toy manufacturer has anything to do with a casino gaming and slot machine manufacturer. But then again, perhaps that’s what makes the partnership all the more American.

The fact of the matter is that IGT and Hasbro have been “doing business” for quite some time. Ever played the Monopoly slot machine at a Vegas casino before? How about Cluedo? Well, these games (among many others) are the fruition of a licensing agreement between Hasbro and IGT – the former of which owns several popular board game brands.

Reaching beyond the brick ‘n mortar casino industry of late, IGT has developed several of Hasbro’s brands into online slot machines, including Dungeons and Dragons, Battleship, Transformers and the aforementioned, highly popular, Cluedo and Monopoly. In the Spring of 2012, IGT will be launching “Monopoly Plus”, which will showcase new gaming innovations and is expected to be a big hit.

While Monopoly Plus may not be available for U.S. citizens to wager at real money online casinos just yet, it’s pretty clear that IGT is ready and willing. The recent renewal of IGT’s licensing agreement with Hasbro gives the slot machine manufacture rights to produce new game titles, and distribute games to legalized online gambling markets through 2014. Before then, there is a good chance that the U.S. will become one of these markets – and IGT is certainly planning on it.
