ABSTRACT
The article reports on the slack in business for slot machine maker International Game Technology (IGT) of Nevada, as part of on-going economic stagnation. The article says that since February 2008, IGT shares were down by more than 60 percent in value at the New York Stock Exchange. Analysts have observed that this could be due to the fact that its rivals Bally Technologies and WMS Industries have cornered a big portion of the market.
