LONDON, Oct. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- International Game Technology PLC ("IGT") (NYSE: IGT) and Chill Gaming announce a multi-year distribution agreement whereby IGT is the sole distributor of Chill Gaming products worldwide outside of Australia and New Zealand. Chill Gaming, derived by blending the words "chance" and "skill," is a joint venture between Crown Resorts (ASX: CWN) and New Gaming Pty Ltd, which is owned by the founders of Wymac Gaming Solutions. Chill Gaming will focus on producing a range of innovative casino experiences aimed at creating value, entertainment, and engaging a broad demographic of players.

"This distribution agreement with Chill Gaming enables IGT to bolster our solutions portfolio with even more products that are designed to attract and entertain an expanded demographic of players," said Walter Bugno, IGT CEO International. "We believe that Chill Gaming's solutions will complement the momentum that IGT has recently generated with innovation-driven solutions such as IGT's Texas Tea Pinball skill-based game and our PlaySpot and Cardless Connect mobile solutions."

"Chill Gaming is excited to form a distribution partnership with IGT," said Peter Herring, Crown Resorts Group General Manager Product, Strategy and Innovation. "Our goal is to create greater value and entertainment for our customers with games that engage casino patrons in new ways. We believe that IGT's global reach and the Company's history in bringing innovative products to market make it the ideal partner for distributing games from the Chill Gaming portfolio."

Two of Chill Gaming's games, Bloomtopia(TM) and Fortunes of the Brave(TM), will join the more than 400 gaming innovations in IGT's booth 3659 at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) in Las Vegas, Oct. 3-5.

    --  The Bloomtopia game is a five-reel game that enables players to play for
        monetary and non-monetary rewards. The Bloomtopia game gives players the
        opportunity to grow and nurture a virtual garden throughout gameplay, by
        awarding virtual resources such as water, sunlight, and seeds. As a
        player cultivates its garden and watches it mature into a personalized
        and attractive environment, the player will earn in-game status and
        access to un-lock different garden styles.
    --  The Fortunes of the Brave game offers players a unique casino experience
        that melds skill and chance. Fortunes of the Brave game players will
        have the opportunity to create an in-game character that they can
        customize throughout gameplay by earning and applying virtual currencies
        to purchase new game content. Players embody their in-game characters in
        premium, video game-style bonus events where player performance
        influences the bonus reward. The game pairs proven slot base game
        mechanics and with a combat bonus feature that rewards performance.
