International Game Technology (IGT), a leading slot machine manufacturer, has partnered with Lucasfilm to create a series of Star Wars themed slots for casinos. The development will be done at IGT's Reno plant under the direction of Joe Kaminkow, IGT Vice President of Product Design.

"We chose to do Star Wars first for the passion many of the creative designers at IGT share for the title, as well as its broad adult fan base. It is much more than a movie; it is a reality of the cultural phenomena of the 20th century," Kaminkow says. "On a personal level, in the early 1990s the company I worked for prior to IGT created the first of its two Star Wars pinball games. They were fun to play and it was a great feeling to crawl back into the Star Wars universe I enjoyed as a fan and player."
