International Game Technology PLC (IGT), formerly Gtech S.p.A. and Lottomatica S.p.A., is a multinational gambling company that produces slot machines and other gambling technology. The company is headquartered in London, with major offices in Rome, Providence, Rhode Island, and Las Vegas. It is controlled, with a 51 percent stake, by De Agostini.[3]

Italian gambling company Lottomatica acquired Gtech Corporation, a US gambling company, in August 2006, and later changed its own name to Gtech. Gtech managed many state and provincial lotteries in the US and had contracts with local and national lotteries in Europe, Australia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Asia.

In 2015, the company acquired American gambling company International Game Technology and again adopted the acquired company's name as its own.

In July 2014, Gtech agreed to acquire American company International Game Technology (IGT), the world's largest slot machine manufacturer, for a total of $6.4 billion, including $4.7 billion in cash and $1.7 billion in assumed debt. The companies combined under a new holding company based in the United Kingdom, and the Gtech name was dropped in favor of IGT.[4][5]

In April 2015, Gtech completed its merger with IGT. The new combined company's name is International Game Technology PLC.[6]

In April 2017, IGT announced an agreement to sell its subsidiary Double Down Interactive LLC To DoubleU Games as a means to establish a partnership in the social casino market.[7]

In February 2022, IGT announced their expansion into Washington state via a multi-year deal with Kalispel tribe.[8]
