WPT Enterprises, Inc. has signed a long-term agreement with Reno, Nev.-based IGT to produce slot and video poker machines based on its WORLD POKER TOUR(TM) television series. IGT, the creator of the first video poker games, will work closely with WPT Enterprises to replicate key elements of the WORLD POKER TOUR show, bringing WPT-branded slots to today's gaming audience worldwide. WORLD POKER TOUR airs Wednesday nights at 9 PM on the Travel Channel.

"IGT is the leader in its field and with its successful track record, we expect to see WORLD POKER TOUR slots and video poker machines in locations around the globe before long," said Steve Lipscomb, WPTE Founder and President. "We believe the success of our television show, both domestically and internationally, will create fans who will be drawn to play machines bearing the WPT trademark."

IGT, a wholly owned subsidiary of International Game Technology, intends to develop WPT-branded three-reel and five-reel slots, as well as video poker and other video games. The company plans to roll out the WORLD POKER TOUR slots globally within two years.
